Brad Pitt is hitting back hard at Angelina Jolie’s accusations that he hasn’t paid a dime in child support for their six kids. A new report claims he’s given her millions and can prove it!
Update: Brad lawyers, in new legal documents obtained by TMZ, dispute the claims that he hasn’t ponied up any money in “meaningful child support.” Brad’s legal team say that he loaned Angelina $8 million so she could buy the home in which she currently lives. The documents also claim that he paid more than $1.3 million in child support.
Brad’s legal team also calls shade on Angelina’s lawyers and their documents, filed earlier in the week, which asked the judge presiding over the case to grant a quick divorce. Brad’s lawyers say it was THEY who first called Angie’s team last week to ask for a quick divorce, so that they could work out the child support and property settlement details at a later date. The documents accuse Angelina of filing papers with the court that are “calculated to increase the conflict” over this legal battle.
Original: It’s on! A new report claims that’s Brad Pitt, 54, can prove without a doubt that. Angelina Jolie’s, 43, made a shocking claims in court papers filed on Aug. 7 that he hasn’t paid any child support towards their six children in over a year and a half is completely untrue. In fact, Brad insists he’s given Angie “way, way more than the amount he agreed to pay … we’re told the total is in the millions of dollars,” according to a source that spoke to TMZ. Their source called Angelina’s deadbeat dad allegations a “joke” and that proof will surface that Brad has been paying her and that her accusations otherwise are totally false.
A source close to the star tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Brad has done everything to fulfill his obligations to his kids, but that Angie keeps changing the rules. “This whole divorce drama is just exhausting for Brad … it’s never ending. At this point, Brad’s gotten used to Angelina’s games, and he’s made it pretty clear he’s not interested in playing along. All Brad’s interested in is reaching a mutually beneficial agreement over the custody of the children, and then ending the marriage, period,” a source close to the Moneyball star tells us.
“Brad couldn’t care less about the money side of thing. His only concern, throughout this whole nightmare, has been and continues to be, the welfare of his children. Which is why he can see straight through Angelina’s latest stunt. Brad seriously doesn’t know whether to feel angry, or to just laugh it all off, because Angelina trying to paint him as some kind of ‘deadbeat dad,’ our insider continues.
“Brad is more than happy to pay regular and ‘meaningful’ child support payments, he would LOVE to. The problem is, every single time their attorneys have tried to hash out the terms for child support, just as they’re about to reach an agreement, Angelina has suddenly changed the goalpost. Then it’s back to square one again. Brad knows that the judge will understand this because it’s clear as glass, so he’s not concerned in the slightest. Brad’s just going to continue to take the high ground and remain focused on what matter — his kids,” our source adds.
Angie originally made their split nasty in 2016, by making all sorts of private details of child custody issues public. After his lawyers called her out for putting her own P.R. spin above the privacy of their kids, the exes agreed in Jan. of 2017 to keep the details of their divorce and custody issues confidential. With today’s filing, Angie has just started another public war with Brad.
