Brad Pitt details millions spent supporting Angelina Jolie and kids

Brad Pitt Says He Gave Angelina Jolie $9 Million Since Split

Brad Pitt claims he's paid Angelina Jolie more than $9M since split

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has accused her estranged husband Brad Pitt of not paying "meaningful child support" since their separation in 2016, reports The Telegraph.

In a court filing on Wednesday, the star's legal team said he had paid more than $1.3m (£1m) in costs and loaned $8m to Jolie to help her buy a house.

Mr Pitt's attorneys say in their document that the actress' filing on Tuesday was an unnecessary attempt to manipulate media coverage.

This latest public row in their divorce proceedings comes after Jolie's claim in court documents on Tuesday that Pitt has not paid adequate child support.

Jolie Pitt's attorneys said in their own court filing Tuesday that Pitt has failed to live up to their informal financial arrangements and she'll seek a court order to get retroactive payments from him.

Jolie, 43, filed for divorce from Pitt, 53, in 2016, after two years of marriage and more than a decade as a couple.

China to impose additional tariffs on $16B worth of USA goods
The US is also considering further tariffs on another $200bn worth of Chinese goods which could come into effect in September. Beijing is expected to hit $16 billion worth of United States goods with equal tariffs in response to Tuesday's move.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse. Neither side specified what those issues were.

Mr Pitt's lawyers say the actor actually suggested this move and it had already been agreed to.

Pitt's lawyers also took shots at Jolie and her lawyers, writing that Jolie's lawyers previously made no mention of any child support issues and that the sudden effort to schedule a hearing on the subject is "calculated to increase the conflict". Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same objective.

There has been no immediate response from Jolie's representatives.

In June, Pitt and Jolie's custody battle hit a fever pitch and a judge required Jolie tell their children that the "court has determined that not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", that they are "safe with their father", and that having a healthy relationship with both parents is "critical".
