Brad Pitt hits back at Angelina Jolie's child support claims

  • Развод Анджелины Джоли и Брэда Питта новые детали

The filing from Pitt's team came after lawyers for Jolie claimed on Tuesday her estranged movie star husband had not paid "any meaningful child support".

Pitt's attorneys said the filing was utterly unnecessary and "a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage" of the split.

This latest public row in their divorce proceedings comes after Jolie's claim in court documents on Tuesday that Pitt has not paid adequate child support. 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.

"Given that the informal arrangements around the payment of the children's expenses have not been regularly sustained by [Pitt] for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file an RFO [request for a court order] for the establishment of a retroactive child support order", the documents state.

Friends of Pitt have been rallying to his defense, denying he is not helping to provide for the six kids he shares with Jolie - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.


She is fighting for sole custody of their children while Pitt, 53, wants joint custody. Neither side specified what those issues were.

The marriage was Pitt's second, having previously Wednesday Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and Jolie's third after actors Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.

The insider also claimed that Jolie never requested child support from her ex until the recent court filing.

The actor moved on with Angelina after he met her on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith but after 11 years together, two of which they were married, Brange announced they were separating in 2016. Ms Jolie's spokesperson told The Telegraph: "The court filing was meant to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path towards the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children". They say her lawyers said they'd discuss the matter with their client, and then Angelina made it look like it was SHE who wanted the quickie divorce.
