Brad Pitt has responded to estranged wife Angelina Jolie's claim that he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" in the more than year-and-a-half since she filed for divorce. "[Pitt] has previously loaned [Jolie] $8 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid over $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children".

Pitt's lawyers filed their response on Wednesday, and in court papers obtained by ET, Pitt denies that he hasn't paid any significant child support and claims that he's paid Jolie over $9 million since their September 2016 split. 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.

The attorneys for Brad are calling BS, saying THEY were the ones who called Angelina's lawyers last week asking for exactly grant the divorce decree quickly and then later deal with child support and property settlement issues.

They also claim Jolie is attempting to manipulate media coverage.
