Hollywood actor, Brad Pitt has fired back at Angelina Jolie’s claims that he failed to pay ‘meaningful’ child support to the actress amid their bitter split. In leaked documents, lawyers for the 54-year-old claim that Pitt has paid over $9million to his 43-year-old ex since their split in 2016.
Jolie’s claim to the contrary was ‘a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage’ according to the filing. The filing by Brad’s lawyers say that he loaned his Maleficent star ex $8million ‘to assist her in purchasing her current residence’.
He has also paid ‘over $1.3million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children.’ Brad’s lawyers say Angelina’s claims that he’s withheld child support are ‘calculated to increase the conflict.’
