Brad Pitt’s $8m loan to Angelina Jolie

The comments from Jolie's attorney came after Brad hit back following her court filing which alleged he wasn't paying "meaningful" child support for their children - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

"Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina [and their six children] but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan".

In documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the attorneys also said Pitt had loaned Jolie US$8 million to help her buy her current house.

Brad Pitt's lawyer has refuted claims that the actor hasn't paid "meaningful child support", which was an accusation made by Angelina Jolie's lawyer on Wednesday.

It's not clear what child support arrangements the couple has in place during the divorce process after splitting two years ago.

The 53-year-old Good Morning Britain host, who is notorious for publicising his sometimes less than complimentary opinions on celebrities, took aim at the actress, 43, after her lawyer said Brad, 54, had not "regularly sustained" payments for their children's expenses.

Pitt's lawyers said in documents they filed for him that Jolie Pitt's lawyers have made no mention that she had any problems with the amounts he has given her for the children.

"On Tuesday, Angelina's lawyer said in a filing: "[Brad] has a statutory duty to pay child support. The only way Angelina could get a cut of Brad's income from 2004 - 2014 is if she could prove they had an agreement that he would support her.

Pitt's lawyer, Lance Spiegel, slammed Jolie's claim in her filing, calling it "unnecessary, omits material information, and is a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".

The "Maleficent" actress said on Tuesday that she wanted to expedite the divorce and return to single status by the end of 2018.

In this latest escalation, Pitt claimed to have paid £1m in costs to Jolie. Jolie Pitt now has primary custody of their children.

Pitt and Jolie were married for two years and enjoyed a 10-year romance that had made the pair one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples. Jolie could receive money from back in 2004 but only if they signed an agreement.
