Brad Pitt says he has given Angelina Jolie millions since split

Brad Pitt says he has given Angelina Jolie millions since split

New court documents filed by Jolie allege that Pitt hasn't paid any "meaningful" child support for a year and half during their ongoing and contentious divorce, reports NBC News.

In new legal documents obtained by TooFab, Pitt's lawyers claim the star has paid over $9 million to Jolie to help with their six children since their split back in September 2016.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split two years ago and things are still very messy. "He has not. Angelina has had to shoulder the majority of those without his contribution for the past two years", the statement continued. Pitt's lawyers claim he loaned Angelina $8 million for the house she bought, plus gave her another $1.3 million for expenses for her and the kids.

Another important takeaway? Jolie is seeking "retroactive child support" and asking the court to "bifurcate" their marital status, which essentially means she's seeking "single" status while the complex divorce proceedings continue to unfold.

According to The Richest, Jolie's net worth is $160 million while Pitt's is $260 million. "Brad was coping with Angie's hard moves when everything was sealed, but now that she is changing attorneys and going public with her filings again, he feels like she has taken off the gloves and is fighting dirty", the source continued.

Pitt's representatives declined to comment.

In June, the couple reached a summer custody agreement - just one of the reasons their divorce has yet to come to a draw - that allows Pitt to see just five of their children during per-hour fractions.

Separate sources told Page Sixthat theWorld War Z star has spent "millions for therapists" for their brood, as well as forked out for their travel expenses and round-the-clock bodyguards.

Today, there was a new brief filed in the Superior Court of the State of California.

Custody issues have proved to be the biggest stumbling block in legally ending the marriage.

But the battle is less about money than it is custody of their brood and how much time each gets with them.
