Brad Pitt details millions spent supporting Angelina Jolie and kids

Brad Pitt details millions spent supporting Angelina Jolie and kids

Brad Pitt loaned Angelina Jolie $8 million to buy a home for her and their children and he is charging her interest.

Jolie's attorney had said in a Tuesday court filing that Pitt had "paid no meaningful child support" since Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016. Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50% of the children's expenses. His camp hit back nearly immediately, insisting he had paid Jolie US$1.3 million in bills and even loaned her US$8 million to buy a new home.

But on Tuesday, her spokeswoman said her filing was meant to provide closure to the marriage "and allow her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".

Pitt's attorneys said that Jolie's claims were "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".

Hollywood star Brad Pitt has told friends he fears his estranged wife Angelina Jolie will take their six children and move to London.

Pitt's lawyers said in documents they filed for him that Jolie Pitt's lawyers have made no mention that she had any problems with the amounts he has given her for the children.

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. That is why most celebrities work out child support disagreements before they get to court. Neither side specified what those issues were.

In this latest escalation, Pitt claimed to have paid £1m in costs to Jolie.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse.

Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same objective.

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

In Pitt's filing Wednesday, his legal team also asserted the actor informed Jolie (through their lawyers) around the beginning of August he wanted to move forward with dissolving their marriage, termed legally as bifurcation.

The court records show that in addition to the $8 million, Pitt gave Jolie over $1.3 million in just under two years.

Angelina Jolie is sounding the alarm. all is not well in the money department.
