Brad Pitt Fires Back at Angelina Jolie's Child Support Request

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

U.S. actor Brad Pitt has rebutted claims made by his estranged wife Angelina Jolie that he has failed to support their children.

Jolie had said in a Tuesday court filing that Pitt had "paid no meaningful child support" since Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016.

The papers add that Angelina's new legal papers were "unnecessary, omits material information and is a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage". According to The Telegraph, the document also stated that Brad Pitt had failed to pay any "meaningful child support" after the couple separated two years back.

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. Jolie Pitt says she wants her divorce from Brad Pitt finalized before the end of the year, and that she intends to seek retroactive child support.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce and custody battle is bringing up a lot of frustrations, especially for Brad, who fears his ex-wife's actions may be doing more bad than good for their six children.

Today, "Extra" obtained Brad's response. Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina and the children, but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan.


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

Pitt forks over hundreds of thousands each month on therapists for his six children, travel expenses and round-the-clock bodyguards, sources told Page Six. 'But she filed in LA Superior Court knowing that it would go public and that he would be made out to be a deadbeat dad - which he isn't'.

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.

A judge agreed and gave Pitt an increasing amount of time.

'She can't see past her anger for Brad that he is on his way to getting joint custody, ' said the magazine's source.
