This BRAD PITT / ANGELINA JOLIE situation is getting uglier by the minute.

After Angelina accused Brad of not paying child support, Brad filed papers of his own, saying he’s given her plenty . . . including $1.3 million in support, and an $8 million loan so she could buy the house she currently lives in.

He also accused her of trying to “increase conflict” between them, and manipulate media coverage.

Then Angelina’s team issued a statement of their own, saying that a loan is a LOAN, not support, and Brad’s got Angelina paying him back WITH INTEREST.  More importantly, he’s simply NOT paying half the kids’ expenses, as he should.

Their statement also says, “Typically a father of means would pay these expenses voluntarily without the need for a request or court order.  We are hopeful that this can be resolved without further delay or posturing.”
