Estranged couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been slamming each other over the past two days.
On Tuesday, Jolie 43 claimed in court papers that her ex had not paid “meaningful child support” for their six kids since their 2016 split .
Pitt fired back at Jolie’s claims on Wednesday, filing his own papers. He called Jolie’s claim “a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage” and revealing that he loaned Jolie millions of dollars to buy a home.
Pitt, 54, disputes the contention that he has not paid child support in the papers lodged at Los Angeles superior court by his lawyer.
In fact, his briefs claim that Pitt “previously loaned her $8 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of Jolie and the children.
In the papers, the lawyers suggest that Jolie’s team is just using the child support allegations as a way to smear Pitt publicly.
According to Page Six sources, they are having arguments concerning the kids.“Brad and Angelina had more arguments this summer over the kids, and while they had earlier this year halted the official divorce proceedings in the hopes of sorting out custody privately in front of a private judge, in reality they weren’t resolving anything.”
The source said Pitt “finally decided he’d had enough, and gave Angie warning he wanted to file to restart the official divorce proceedings in LA Superior Court, just to get things over and done with.
“Jolie asked for a week to “think about it,” then “stuck the knife in” by filing her own papers, demanding the divorce be finalized and calling him a delinquent dad.”
