The divorce battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is getting murkier by the day as the ex-couple have now locked horns over their children.
A day after Jolie, in a court filing, alleged that Pitt has not paid any ‘meaningful’ child support since their split in 2016, the latter’s lawyer, Lance Spiegel called the filing “a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage”, reported agencies.
Spiegel gave specific sums of how much Pitt has contributed, saying, the latter “loaned” Jolie $8 million to help the actress purchase a house and also contributed over $1.3 million “in bills for Jolie’s benefit and the minor children”.
Jolie on Tuesday had accused Pitt of evading child support. In a two-page brief, which was filed in L.A. Superior Court and obtained by agencies, her attorney wrote that the actress plans to request a court order for the establishment of a retroactive child support order.
The ex-couple, who has six children together are still fighting over their children’s custody. Financial documents are yet to be exchanged between the two since it is a routine for any divorce settlements around the world.
They were together since 2004 and tied the knot in August 2014.
