Brad Pitt fires back at Angelina Jolie’s claims that he has not paid meaningful child support since they split
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are at war in their divorce case for so many reasons.
They’ve been having issues with co-parenting and how much time Brad can spend with the children. But the most recent public row in their divorce proceedings has to do with child support.
Jolie filled court documents on Tuesday, claiming that Pitt has not paid “meaningful” child support since they split.
“[Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support. As a present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation,” Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, wrote in Tuesday’s filing.
But Brad Pitt has fired back with legal documents disputing Angelina Jolie’s claims.
In the court filing obtained by CNN on Wednesday, Pitt’s attorney Lance Spiegel states that the actor loaned Jolie $8 million to purchase her current residence and paid $1.3 million in “bills” for the benefit of Jolie and their six children since their split in 2016. Pitt’s attorney also calls Jolie’s filing a “thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.”
A source close to Pitt told CNN: “It is sad that someone would deliberately misrepresent the situation, especially after Brad has continued to fulfill his commitments.”
