The Moneyball star’s lawyers have responded to Angie’s recent attack where she claimed that he hasn’t paid any “meaningful” child support since their split in September 2016.
Substantiating reports that Brad did fork over “millions” to his estranged wife since they split, new court docs claim that the actor also gave Angie an $8 million loan!
In the legal filings, obtained by TMZ, Brad claims he loaned the Maleficent 2 star the large sum so she could buy the home she’s living in now. Plus, it appears he has paid over $1.3 million in child support.
His lawyers also called Angie’s latest tactics “a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage,” claiming that her recent request to grant the divorce quickly and leave child support and other issues for a later date actually came from Brad’s side first.
That’s right. The attorneys alleged that Brad was, in fact, the one who asked to grant the divorce decree quickly. Angie’s lawyers allegedly said they’d discuss the matter with her, but she apparently pulled a fast one and made it look like she was the one who called for the instant divorce.
Brad’s team is calling BS on Angie’s issues over “meaningful” child support, and say her recent filings are “calculated to increase the conflict.”
Messy all around!
