Brad Pitt has responded to estranged wife Angelina Jolie's claim that he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" in the more than year-and-a-half since she filed for divorce.

Mr Pitt's attorneys said in the two-page document filed in Los Angeles Superior Court that he "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid significant child support".

Since the former couple have yet to officially divorce, any financial agreement was an "informal arrangement" according to DeJean.

But late Wednesday, the actress, 43, through her attorney, blasted the actor, 54, accusing him of 'a blatant attempt to obfuscate the truth and distract from the fact that he has not fully met his legal obligations to support the children'. Now, a source tells ET that Jolie "just wants the marriage to be over".

Warner Bros. Reportedly Interested In James Gunn After Disney Firing
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still technically slated to begin production early next year. THR notes that Gunn is now locked in complicated negotiations with Disney over his exit.

In court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Pitt's attorney stated, "Respondent has previously loaned Petitioner $8.0 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid over $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of Petitioner and the minor children".

Brad's lawyers say Angelina and her lawyers have engaged in dirty tricks, calling them out for "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage". "Angelina will of course honour that loan. As of present, [Pitt] has paid no meaningful child support since separation".

"Angelina is asking Brad to pay 50 per cent of the children's expenses". "Angelina has had to shoulder the majority of those without his contribution for the past two years".

Another source added: 'Brad has completely lived up to his commitments as far as child support and will continue to do so'. They say her lawyers said they'd discuss the matter with their client, and then Angelina made it look like it was SHE who wanted the quickie divorce. Child support is not optional in California, ' the statement on Jolie's behalf went on.
