Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie spar over child support, house loan

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie spar over child support, house loan

TMZ reports that Angelina Jolie has been saying that Brad Pitt isn't paying child support, but Pitt has reportedly paid millions of dollars ever since their split nearly two years ago.

In the latest brief, filed Wednesday with the Superior Court of the State of California, Pitt's lawyer Lance Spiegel called Jolie's recently filing requesting more child support "unnecessary" and "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage", according to People.

The filing explained the heartthrob star had loaned his ex $8million "to assist her in purchasing her current residence" and also paid 'over $1.3million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children'. Jolie Pitt says she wants her divorce from Brad Pitt finalized before the end of the year, and that she intends to seek retroactive child support.

"Following the incident of September 2016, Angelina and the children needed to move from the family home, which Brad chose to keep, including all of its contents", DeJean said in a statement obtained by ET Canada. "A loan is not; however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate".

Angelina Jolie's spokesperson Mindy Nyby revealed that the objective behind the court filing was to ensure that their marriage gets a "closure" and that Brad could "recommit to their children", added the report.

Be has contacted representatives for Angelina and Brad on the claims.

National Football League preseason Week 1: Expectations for Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley, Andrew Luck
Last year, as a junior at Penn State, Barkley had 1,271 rushing yards and scored 21 touchdowns. Taylor will start under center, though not expected to stay in the game long.

Brad Pitt is having a hard time with his ex Angelina Jolie's decision to make their divorce battle public again and he's furious over the fact that it's negatively affecting their kids.

They tied the knot in a secret ceremony in August 2014, and share six children together: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10.

Pitt forks over hundreds of thousands each month on therapists for his six children, travel expenses and round-the-clock bodyguards, sources told Page Six.

The incident was reported and Pitt was investigated by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, but was later cleared of wrongdoing.

'The divorce case has been held in front of a private judge to keep it out of the press, ' one friend told the gossip site.

Custody issues have proved to be the biggest stumbling block in legally ending the marriage.
