I've given her $9m: Brad hits back at Angelina's child support claims

By AP Reporters

Brad Pitt says he has given estranged wife Angelina Jolie $1.3m (£1m) and lent her another $8m (£6.2m) since their separation two years ago.

The declaration in a court filing is meant to counter Ms Jolie's assertion in documents a day earlier that Mr Pitt has paid "no meaningful child support".

Ms Jolie's lawyers also said in the Tuesday filing, requesting a case management hearing, that she wanted to have the couple's marriage dissolved by the end of the year by separating some of the lingering issues to be resolved later.

Mr Pitt's lawyers said the actor actually suggested this move and it had already been agreed to.

Mr Pitt's attorneys said in their document that the filing on Tuesday was an unnecessary attempt by the actress to manipulate media coverage.

Jolie filed for divorce nearly two years ago and currently has primary custody of their six children.
