Fact is. Angelina has not made money an issue in her divorce until several weeks ago, when she asked a judge for a formal child support agreement.

Brad Pitt on Wednesday (Aug 8) rebutted claims that he had failed to support his children and accused his estranged wife Angelina Jolie of trying to manipulate the media in their long drawn-out divorce.

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 $1.3 million in bills for Jolie and their six children since their 2016 separation.

The striking statement comes hours after Pitt filed documents in court countering Jolie's claim he had not paid any "meaningful" child support amid their ongoing divorce proceedings.

The broadcaster blasted: "That's such a weak, cheap shot, Angelina - especially for a humanitarian who says she always puts her children first". His lawyers are probably screaming for at least 50/50, if not primary custody because Angelina's behavior is becoming so egregious and abusive to the children that it's in their best interest to live with their father, not their mother'.

And while the lawyer said Jolie will "honour that loan, a loan is not, however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate".

Cricketer Ben Stokes accused of lying to the jury over 'homophobic abuse'
Stokes said the cricketers offered Cunningham around PS60 or PS70 ($104 or $120) to get them into the club, which was turned down. Looking at security camera footage from outside the nightclub, Stokes said it was not possible to tell if he was angry.

The two filings were rare unsealed public documents in the case that gave a glimpse into the slow-moving divorce of the 54-year-old actor Pitt and the 43-year-old actress and director Jolie Pitt.

Pitt's attorneys said that Jolie's claims were "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".

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

They said Brad "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid significant child support".

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.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been separated since 2016.
