"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". 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.
When the mum-of-six filed new custody papers on Monday alleging that her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, was not paying "meaningful child support", the actor slammed her claims. Child support is not optional in California. The actress is now seeking full physical custody of their six children - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne - while Brad Pitt wants to split everything 50/50.
The broadcaster blasted: "That's such a weak, cheap shot, Angelina - especially for a humanitarian who says she always puts her children first".
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".
Insiders claim that Pitt's fortune is far larger than Jolie's, despite the fact that she's made millions over the course of her career in Hollywood.
Many divorcees will relate to Jolie's situation, even if the sums in her case are higher. The only way Angelina could get a cut of Brad's income from 2004 - 2014 is if she could prove they had an agreement that he would support her.
British pound falls lower against dollar, euro
The pound has lost more than 10 per cent since April and is down nearly 15 per cent since the Brexit vote in June 2016. The pound also fell below US$1.29 for the first time since August 31 2017.
Pitt's lawyers answered that Pitt actually suggested expediting the divorce in this way and had already agreed to it.
In this latest escalation, Pitt claimed to have paid £1m in costs to Jolie.
Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same goal.
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. Jolie Pitt now has primary custody of their children.
Pitt and Jolie were married for two years and had a 10-year romance that had made the pair one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples. Jolie could receive money from back in 2004 but only if they signed an agreement.
