Brad Pitt Dismisses Angelina Jolie's Allegations Over Child Support As 'Unnecessary'

According to People, the lawyer said Brad Pitt "loaned" his estranged wife a sum of $8 million in connection with the purchasing of her present residence, adding he also credited $1.3 million to Angelina "in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children".

Pitt's attorneys said in the two-page document filed in Los Angeles Superior Court that he "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid significant child support".

Jolie's attorney responded by saying that Pitt was charging Jolie interest on the loan for the new house and that the actress has had to shoulder most of the expenses for the children alone.

The filing is a rebuttal to one made by Jolie on Tuesday, in which she claimed that he had "paid no meaningful child support since separation".

"What has been filed by Brad's side today is 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", attorney Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement.

In June this year, Angelina expressed her disdain when private court documents were leaked in the media, with the ensuing reports suggesting she could lose custody of her children if they're not granted more time with their father.

The two filings were rare unsealed public documents in the case that gave a glimpse into the slow-moving divorce of the 54-year-old actor Pitt and the 43-year-old actress and director Jolie Pitt.

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

The Hollywood power couple had been together for 12 years and married for two when she filed for divorce in 2016.

Ms Jolie Pitt's filing also said she wanted to have the couple's marriage dissolved by the end of the year by separating some of the lingering issues to be resolved later.

Ms Jolie Pitt's filing requested a case management hearing to discuss the issues of child support and finalising the divorce soon.
