As one of Hollywood's most toxic divorces drags on, Angelina has tried to block Brad from seeing their six children and smeared him with claims he hasn't paid 'meaningful' child support.
But the actor has fought back with a new court filing, slamming his estranged wife's charges as a 'thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.'
In fact, the legal documents filed by Brad's legal team claim he's paid more than $9 million since the couple split two years ago.
Meanwhile, sources tell the US publication Angelina has recruited a secret 'spy hard' team to monitor Brad's every move while she filmed Maleficent 2 in London.
'Brad is renowned for his relaxed persona, but Angelina is exactly the opposite,' an insider dished.
'Angelina has several highly connected showbiz confidants who are tracking Brad's every move and reporting to her.
'She has instructed them to compile detailed dossiers on Brad to use in their divorce and custody mediation. She wants a complete packet of information on him in court.'
Although there is no evidence of anyone tailing Brad, but the National Enquirer claims the actor appeared paranoid while on break from filming Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
'Angelina has already been told by a judge to ease up and help their children have a positive relationship with Brad,' a source tells.
'If she starts to present a dossier from a private eye against him, it could do more harm than good.'
Neither Brad or Angelina have responded to the National Enquirer's claims.
