Angelina Jolie wants divorce finalised by end of 2018

  • Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie and their children Pax Knox and Vivienne arrive at Tokyo International Airport

More drama has been reported from the long-running divorce case of one-time Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Pitt reportedly "loaned" Jolie $8 million to help her purchase a house and has since contributed $1.3 million in various bills and other benefits for the children.

Mr Pitt's attorneys say in their document that the actress' filing on Tuesday was an unnecessary attempt to manipulate media coverage. She is asking for the main custody of the six children.

Now, Pitt and his team are fighting back, slamming Jolie's allegations as "manipulative" and essentially saying she's doing this to come across as the victor of the ruthless news cycle surrounding their relationship.

This latest public row in their divorce proceedings comes after Jolie's claim in court documents on Tuesday that Pitt has not paid adequate child support. Just a day before, Jolie had accused Pitt of not paying "meaningful" child support ever since their 2016 split. "Brad was coping with Angie's hard moves when everything was sealed, but now that she is changing attorneys and going public with her filings again, he feels like she has taken off the gloves and is fighting dirty", the source continued.

They tied the knot in a secret ceremony in August 2014, and share six children together: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10.

The government would have been better off subsidising professional shooters to reduce kangaroo numbers more humanely, he said. Farm reservoirs have dried up and crops are failing.

"Everything had been private until she chose to file publicly yesterday, and that makes Brad hurt, angry and ready to fight back".

The marriage was Pitt's second, having previously Wednesday Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and Jolie's third after actors Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller. Jolie Pitt now has primary custody of their children.

Jolie cited "irreconcilable differences" when she filed to end the marriage, and the pair became embroiled in a bitter child custody dispute in the months following the announcement.

But the battle is less about money than it is custody of their brood and how much time each gets with them.
