Brad Pitt says he has given Angelina Jolie millions since split

Brad Pitt says he has given Angelina Jolie millions since split

She has claimed that Brad hasn't paid "meaningful child support" since they're separation but Brad quickly defended himself in his filing by saying when a hearing was scheduled for August 21, Angelina made no mention of child support issues.

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.

However, attorneys for the "Inglourious Basterds" star have countered, claiming he loaned the actress $8 million to purchase a home and gave her $1.3 million for bills related to Jolie and their kids.

According to an eyewitness source cited by Us Weekly, Pitt held two hours-long meetings with his attorneys in Los Angeles on the same day Jolie submitted her filing.

But late Wednesday, the actress, 43, through her attorney, blasted the actor, 54, accusing him of 'a blatant attempt to obfuscate the truth and distract from the fact that he has not fully met his legal obligations to support the children'.

She is fighting for sole custody of their children while Pitt, 53, wants joint custody.


Another thing the filing claims is that on August 6, Angelina asked Brad and his team to wait (a week) to take action on any new filings but on August 7, she reportedly tried to make it seem like she had the complaints first by taking action herself. "As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation".

The incident was reported and Pitt was investigated by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, but was later cleared of wrongdoing.

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

Separate sources told Page Sixthat theWorld War Z star has spent "millions for therapists" for their brood, as well as forked out for their travel expenses and round-the-clock bodyguards. "[Angelina's] main focus has always been to co-parent with Brad", the source adds.

Brad Pitt is having a hard time with his ex Angelina Jolie's decision to make their divorce battle public again and he's furious over the fact that it's negatively affecting their kids.

Custody issues have proved to be the biggest stumbling block in legally ending the marriage.
