Brad has now filed his own documents via his lawyer Lance Spiegel, calling his ex-wife’s claims “unnecessary” and “a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage”.
His lawyer also adds that he “adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support”.
Spiegel claims Pitt “loaned” Jolie $US8 million ($AUD10.7 million) to help her purchase her current house and has contributed over $US1.3 million ($AUD1.7 million) “in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children.”
A spokesperson for Ange said the aim of the filing “is to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children.”
Brad and Ange met in 2003 and married in 2014 before announcing their split in September 2016. The custody of their six children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox — has been an ongoing issue between the pair.
