In the latest round of the exchange of accusations between the powerful former Hollywood couple formerly known as Brangelina, Pitt's lawyers said the actor paid more than $ 1.3 million in bills to Angelina and her six children since the split in 2016.
Jolie cited "irreconcilable differences" when she filed to end the marriage, and the pair became embroiled in a bitter child custody dispute in the months following the announcement. "Child support is not optional in California". "Brad is crushed Angelina has chose to take this divorce public again", a source close to Brad EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.
Jolie's attorney responded by saying that Pitt was charging Jolie interest on the loan for the new house and that the actress has had to shoulder most of the expenses for the children alone. "Angelina will of course honour that loan".
Mindy Nyby, a spokeswoman for the actress, said on Tuesday that the court filing was intended "to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".More news: The Nintendo Switch Paid Online Services Start The Second Half Of September

Pitt's team, meanwhile, filed their response on Wednesday, claiming that he's paid Jolie over $9 million since their September 2016 split. "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.
It continues, "Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50 percent of the children's expenses". He is going to use everything he can against her in court to insure that he gets as much custody of the kids as possible.
Be has contacted representatives for Angelina and Brad on the claims.
Jolie initially filed for sole physical custody of Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
