Brad Pitt hits back at ex

Brad Pitt Says He Gave Angelina Jolie $9 Million Since Split

Brad Pitt has responded to estranged wife Angelina Jolie's claim that he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" in the more than year-and-a-half since she filed for divorce.

The Maleficent star's legal representative, Samantha Bley DeJean, filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, stating Jolie's intention to seek a court order forcing Pitt to cover a significant share of the costs of raising their six children, including retroactive payments.

Meanwhile, Pitt and his team say the Salt and Wanted star is simply trying to "manipulate media coverage" in her favor. "As of present, [he] has paid no meaningful child support since separation", her lawyer said in the filing on Tuesday.

In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Brad fires back. he loaned her $8 million so she could buy the home in which she now lives, and shelled out more than $1.3 million in child support.

Angelina Jolie's spokesperson Mindy Nyby revealed that the objective behind the court filing was to ensure that their marriage gets a "closure" and that Brad could "recommit to their children", added the report.

Jolie initially filed for sole physical custody of Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Spiegel goes on to criticize Jolie for urging the judge overseeing their case to issue a divorce decree by the end of the year, and allow them to settle other matters, including custody and child support, at a later date, arguing Pitt was the one who first suggested the idea, known as a bifurcation. Neither side specified what those issues were. Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same objective.

Jolie Pitt's attorneys did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse.

A source went on to claim to UsWeekly that Jolie, who is now filming Maleficent 2 in London, had been forced to return to work making movies in order to cover the costs associated with raising her children.
