Angelina Jolie Hits Back at Brad Pitt in Child Support Battle: 'A Blatant Attempt to Distract'

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are continuing to battle it out.

After Brad‘s team filed papers claiming that he’s already paid Angelina millions in child support and loans, Angelina‘s team issued a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday (August 8).

Angelina’s filing of yesterday was both legally appropriate and factually accurate in all respects. 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,” Samantha Bley DeJean of the Law Offices of Bley and Bley said in the statement.

“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. Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina and the children, but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan. Angelina will of course honor that loan. A loan is not; however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.”

Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50 percent of the children’s expenses. He has not. Angelina has had to shoulder the majority of those without his contribution for the past two years. Child support is not optional in California. Typically a father of means would pay these expenses voluntarily without the need for a request or court order. We are hopeful that this can be resolved without further delay or posturing.”

Brad Pitt's Lawyers Fire Back at Angelina Jolie's Child Support Claims

Brad Pitt‘s lawyers are fighting back against Angelina Jolie‘s claims that “has paid no meaningful child support since separation.”

The 54-year-old actor’s lawyers filed papers in response to Angelina‘s papers.

The papers say, “There is no need for a Case Management Conference to schedule a hearing or filing deadlines regarding child support. [Pitt] adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid significant child support. [Pitt] has previously loaned [Jolie] $8 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid over $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children.”

The papers add that Angelina‘s new legal papers were “unnecessary, omits material information and is a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.”

Brad Pitt Has 'Paid Millions' to Angelina Jolie for Child Support

Sources close to Brad Pitt are refuting the reports that he has not paid child support to his estranged wife Angelina Jolie.

Angelina‘s attorney filed papers in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (August 7) that stated Brad “has paid no meaningful child support since separation.” Her rep also released a statement explaining why she is asking for child support.

Multiple outlets are both reporting the opposite.

Brad has paid “far more than any informal agreement would stipulate and far more than any judge would have ordered paid if there had been such an order,” according to People.

TMZ says that Brad “has given her ‘way, way more’ than the amount he agreed to pay … we’re told the total is in the millions of dollars.”

Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Requested Child Support from Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie‘s spokesperson is speaking out to clarify why the actress is requesting child support from estranged husband Brad Pitt as part of their divorce settlement.

The Oscar-winning actress’ lawyer filed a brief on Tuesday (August 7) that stated Brad “has a duty to pay child support,” but that he has “paid no meaningful child support since separation.”

Angelina intends on filing a request for a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.

The spokesperson told People the request for child support “is to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children.”

Angelina and Brad are working out custody for their six children – Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
