Mr Pitt's attorneys say in their document that the actress' filing on Tuesday was an unnecessary attempt to manipulate media coverage.
Jolie and Pitt divorced in 2016 after two years of marriage and were romantically linked as early as 2005. "Angelina will of course honour that loan".
Reps for both Pitt and Jolie have been contacted by TooFab. Much of the legal brouhaha has concerned the custody of their six children, and now a child support dispute has landed them in the spotlight once again.
"Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50 per cent of the children's expenses".
"Respondent has previously loaned Petitioner $8.0 million (USD) to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid over $1.3 million (USD) in bills for the benefit of Petitioner and the minor children", the court papers stated, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Mindy Nyby, a spokeswoman for the actress, said the court filing was intended "to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path towards the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children".
Pitt and Jolie have three sons and three daughters, ages 17 and under. However, the brief claims that Jolie's group of lawyers then jumped the gun, filing their own paperwork "to create the impression that she, not [Pitt], wanted to bifurcate". Child support is not optional in California, ' the statement on Jolie's behalf went on.
Separate sources told Page Sixthat theWorld War Z star has spent "millions for therapists" for their brood, as well as forked out for their travel expenses and round-the-clock bodyguards.
From here, things get even more complicated.
