Brad Pitt details millions spent supporting Angelina Jolie and kids

Brad Pitt loaned Angelina Jolie $8 million to buy a home for her and their children and he is charging her interest. Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50% of the children's expenses.

In the latest round of bitter accusations between the Hollywood power couple once known as Brangelina, Pitt's attorneys said the actor had paid over US$1.3 million (S$1.7 million) in bills for Jolie and their six children since their 2016 separation.

As we reported, the Maleficent 2 star is debating filing a claim that could prove they had an agreement that he would support her - thus, landing her a slice of Brad's income from sometime around 2004 through 2014 - but sources close to Daddy Pitt tell TMZ that such a promise was never made because both parties were extremely rich from being, you know, movie stars. "Given that the informal arrangements around the payment of the children's expenses have not been regularly sustained. for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file. for the establishment of a retroactive child support order".

Pitt's court filing said it was the actor, not Jolie, who first made the request to speed up the divorce. Child support is not optional in California.

Angelina Jolie wants to get one thing straight - a loan is not child support.

But Brad Pitt's lawyer, Lance Spiegel, says that Angelina Jolie's filing was "unnecessary" and a "thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage". Neither side specified what those issues were.

The divorce filing, citing irreconcilable differences, triggered a bitter custody dispute during which Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse.

According to the fine print, the victor can collect two free meals per week for 50 years. McDonald's says the victor will be drawn at random and be notified within two days.

Pitt's lawyers answered that Pitt actually suggested expediting the divorce in this way and had already agreed to it.

Jolie Pitt's lawyers did not immediately reply to an email seeking comment.

Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same objective.

Bley DeJean then explained that the reason 43-year-old Jolie needed a loan to buy a house was because Pitt "chose to keep" the family home "including all of its contents", leaving Jolie and their six kids - Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10 - with no place to go.

Jolie was trying to restrict Pitt's interactions with the children, and the judge came down hard on her earlier this summer.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been separated since 2016.
