Divorce battle continues; Brad Pitt hits back at Angelina Jolie over ‘child support’ remark

The divorce battle between Hollywood’s once supercouple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is far from over. Instead, it’s getting murkier day by day with eminent mud-slinging. The ex couple have now locked horns to attain custody over their 6 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 People.

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 NBC News, 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.
