United States actor Brad Pitt has rebutted claims made by his estranged wife Angelina Jolie that he has failed to support their children.

However, attorneys for the "Inglourious Basterds" star have countered, claiming he loaned the actress $8 million to purchase a home and gave her $1.3 million for bills related to Jolie and their kids. According to The Telegraph, the document also stated that Brad Pitt had failed to pay any "meaningful child support" after the couple separated two years back.

Brad's lawyers have responded to Angelina's latest attack where she claimed in legal docs he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" since their split in September 2016.


Pitt's lawyers also took shots at Jolie and her lawyers, writing that Jolie's lawyers previously made no mention of any child support issues and that the sudden effort to schedule a hearing on the subject is "calculated to increase the conflict".

There has been no immediate response from Jolie's representatives.

Jolie's spokesperson, Mindy Nyby, told ET on Tuesday that the actress wants to move the divorce process forward with the new court filing. Ms Jolie's spokesperson told The Telegraph: "The court filing was meant to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path towards the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".


Brad's lawyers point to Angelina's legal docs that were filed earlier this week, in which she asks the judge to grant the divorce quickly so she can be a single woman again. leaving child support and other issues for a later date.

The Hollywood power couple had been together for 12 years and married for two when she filed for divorce 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.
