Brad Pitt is literally bringing the receipts in his ongoing divorce battle with Angelina Jolie.
After court documents revealed Jolie’s claims that Pitt hadn’t paid “meaningful child support” since their split, Pitt’s lawyers are reportedly firing back, accusing the actress of “a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.”
In legal documents acquired by TMZ, lawyers for the actor claim he loaned Jolie $8 million to buy the home she resides in with the children and an additional $1.3 million in child support.
In her court documents filed earlier this week, Jolie asked the judge to grant a speedy divorce, with child support and property settlement to be worked out at a later date. Lawyers for Pitt tell TMZ their client was the one who asked for a quick settlement last week through legal teams but Jolie’s reps submitted documents over child support first in a manner “calculated to increase the conflict.”
