Things are getting ugly between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Shortly after In Touch revealed that the mother-of-six was requesting $100,000 a month in child support, a source tells the mag that the 53-year-old is refusing to pay the astronomical number.
Brad, who is seeking joint custody of his six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — “has no issue taking care of the kids,” the source tells In Touch exclusively. “But he won’t pay her child support” because he doesn’t want Angelina in control of how the funds are spent.
At the moment, the plan is to have Brad pay $100,000 a month — as Brad is currently worth more than his estranged wife; the source explains, “This will pay for all of the kids’ expenses as well as set up a trust fund for each child.”
According to the source, every year, $250,000 will be put in each child’s trust fund, which will be capped off at $5 million.
The two have seriously faced off since announcing their plan to divorce back in September.
Last month, the two faced off over whether or not to send their brood to a “traditional school.”
“Brad’s team is insisting that they enroll the kids in a traditional school in LA, but Angie’s team rejected the idea,” an insider exclusively told In Touch at the time. “[Brad’s] team also proposed that one parent always stay behind in LA when the other has to go away on a film shoot or out of town for work, which would allow the kids to remain in school.”
According to the new source, Angelina is hoping to get the divorce finalized in the next 90 days — but based on the current situation, that seems unlikely.
