Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce and custody battle is bringing up a lot of frustrations, especially for Brad, who fears his ex-wife's actions may be doing more bad than good for their six children.
The filing explained the heartthrob star had loaned his ex $8million "to assist her in purchasing her current residence" and also paid 'over $1.3million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children'.
The 54-year-old's camp branded Ange's child support claims "calculated", "unnecessary" and a "thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".
Jolie's attorney responded by saying that Pitt was charging Jolie interest on the loan for the new house and that the actress has had to shoulder most of the expenses for the children alone.
According to TMZ, Angelina filed legal documents asking a judge to issue a final divorce decree and force Brad to pay child support for their children, as well as retroactively pay for what he has allegedly missed as per an informal agreement.
"Brad felt like he actually had a say and that the court was seeing his side of things", a source added. In a statement to ET on Wednesday, Samantha Bley DeJean of the Law Offices of Bley and Bley said that her client's request for child support "was both legally appropriate and factually accurate in all respects".

The Kerala Disaster Management Authority has issued a red alert in Wayanad district till August 14, according to Mathrubhumi . The minister said the shutters were only opened for a few hours to release the pressure and there was no reason for panic.
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". "A loan is not, however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate".
Meanwhile, Brad Pitt's representatives chose not to comment on the situation.
Pitt and Jolie have three sons and three daughters, ages 17 and under.
This is especially common when the divorce is drawn out, as in the case of Pitt and Jolie.
The couple separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage and filed for divorce shortly after. He is going to use everything he can against her in court to insure that he gets as much custody of the kids as possible.
