This divorce is so extra messy!

In a legal brief obtained by Us Weekly and filed by Brad Pitt’s lawyer Lance Spiegel on Wednesday with the Los Angeles Superior Court, the actor criticized Angelina Jolie’s recent court filing accusing him of not paying “meaningful child support.”


In his filing, Spiegel, as the representative of Pitt, states that Jolie’s request is “unnecessary, omits material information and is a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.”

The court papers go on to claim that Pitt has already loaned Jolie $8 million to “assist her in purchasing her current residence” as well as pay more than $1.3 million in bills “for the benefit” of Jolie and their kids.

There isn’t a doubt in my mind that Brad Pitt’s characterization is 100% accurate. Angelina’s entire life has been about tightly controlling her image (even when it was to intentionally appear “crazy.”) Losing control of this narrative is killing her.
