Brad Pitt hits back at Angelina Jolie's child support claims
09 August 2018, 04:10 | Elsie Buchanan
TMZ reports that Angelina Jolie has been saying that Brad Pitt isn't paying child support, but Pitt has reportedly paid millions of dollars ever since their split nearly two years ago. Pitt reportedly "loaned" Jolie $8 million to help her purchase a house and has since contributed $1.3 million in various bills and other benefits for the children.
In the documents, the 43-year-old actress/director claimed Pitt has "paid no meaningful child support" and failed to stick to the "informal" deal they had in place following their separation in September, 2016, after two years of marriage.
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.
Mr Pitt's attorneys say in their document that the actress' filing on Tuesday was an unnecessary attempt to manipulate media coverage. They say her gripe over child support is bogus and she knows it.
However, the allegations have infuriated Pitt, and his attorney, Lance Spiegel, has now fired back at Jolie, suggesting she lied about the lack of child support funds.
Jolie Pitt's attorneys did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment. But on Tuesday her spokeswoman said her filing was meant to provide closure to the marriage "and allow her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".
