That’s why the Maleficent 2 star has been increasing her attacks on her estranged husband lately — claiming, for example, he “has paid no meaningful child support” since their split — according to Us Weekly sources.
A Pitt insider told the publication that Angie “sees the writing on the wall: Joint custody is a done deal, and there is nothing she can do to stop it.”
But, dammit, she’s still gonna try!
The two have been making swipes at each other over the past few weeks, and Angie’s team is making sure to parry each of Brad’s blows.
When the Moneyball actor’s camp responded in a filing that he had paid Angie $9.3 million since their divorce filing, $8 million of which was a loan for her to buy a house, the 43-year-old actress’s lawyer clarified that Brad was “charging her interest on a payment plan,” adding:
“A loan is not, however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.”
Despite Angie’s full court press, Brad remains confident that he’ll win joint custody and isn’t planning on backing down. The source added:
“Brad is done playing doormat to Angie, hoping that would tamp down her anger. He is going to trust his lawyers and inner circle of friends to continue to be there for him — and get him joint custody of the kids.”
This really sounds like war!
Hopefully the two will cool down once the custody agreement is set in place.
