Brad Pitt says he has given estranged wife Angelina Jolie $1.3 million (£1 million) and lent her another $8 million (£6.2 million) since their separation two years ago.

Brad's lawyers have responded to Angelina's latest attack where she claimed in legal docs he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" since their split in September 2016.

The filing calls it an attempt to make it look like Angelina wanted out as soon as possible, branding it a "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".

In the papers lodged with LA Superior Court, Pitt's lawyers said that he "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support".

In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Brad fires back. he loaned her $8 million so she could buy the home in which she now lives, and shelled out more than $1.3 million in child support.

If you've been keeping up with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's legal war (and we'd understand if you're a little lost since it's been dragging for what feels like forrrrever), then you'll know we've seen some major new developments this month.

"Given that the informal arrangements around the payment of the children's expenses have not been regularly sustained. for over a year and a half, [Jolie] intends to file. for the establishment of a retroactive child support order", the documents stated.

Jolie was granted primary custody of 17-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne as part of a December, 2016 agreement.

The actress also said Tuesday that she desired to have the divorce expedited so she could return to single status by the end of 2018. Neither side specified what those issues were.

The papers say, "There is no need for a Case Management Conference to schedule a hearing or filing deadlines regarding child support". Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same objective.

Reps for both Pitt and Jolie have been contacted by TooFab.
