Another shot, fired. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September of 2016, and after an initial, vicious flurry of activity (including Pitt being investigated for allegedly treating their eldest child in a rough manner), the warring lovers seemed to put their differences aside.
But in recent days, the pair have been filing papers in court against each other, with Jolie accusing Pitt of failing to provide “meaningful support” to their six kids, and Pitt arguing that he gave Jolie $1.3 million in outright support, plus an $8 million loan.
Jolie is considering filing a palimony suit against Pitt in order to go after all of the money he earned during their entire relationship, The Blast reports. (The pair got together in 2005, but didn’t marry until 2014). Pitt’s net worth is roughly $240 million, according to reports, while Jolie’s is $160 million.
And in a statement to InStyle, Jolie’s lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean continued to rail against Pitt, claiming it was his fault he had to loan her the $8 million for a new house in the first place.
“What has been filed by Brad’s side today is 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,” Bley DeJean said in response to Pitt’s rebuttal.
She continued: “Following the incident of September 2016, Angelina and the children needed to move from the family home, which Brad chose to keep, including all of its contents.” The “incident,” of course, is the alleged altercation which took place between Pitt and Maddox, 17, on a private plane.
Bley DeJean went on to explain that Pitt was “asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina” and the children, but “instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan.”
