Brad Pitt's lawyers aren't mincing words. they say Angelina Jolie is a master manipulator and a liar by essentially claiming he's a deadbeat dad, because they say he's forked over more than $9 MILLION over the last 2 years.

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".

Brad's lawyers have responded to Angelina's latest attack where she claimed in legal docs he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" since their split in September 2016.

Angie's attorney Samantha Bley DeJean filed a two-page brief on August 7 in which she accused Brad of not paying child support. The two reportedly have an informal agreement, as she claimed in legal documents filed yesterday, but he's paid "way, way more" than what they originally agreed on.

"[Pitt] has a duty to pay child support", Samantha Bley DeJean, an attorney for Jolie, writes in the court document obtained by ET.

But a source also claimed to ET that the court filing is in retaliation over Jolie being ordered by a judge in June to help fix her children's relationship with 54-year-old Pitt.

Jolie Pitt's filing requested a case management hearing, which would take place privately in front of a judge, to discuss the issues of child support and finalizing the divorce soon.

According to People, Spiegel called the claims "unnecessary", and "A thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage". Pitt's response said that a status conference that is already scheduled would serve the same goal. Jolie has sought sole custody of the children.
