Brad Pitt has responded to estranged wife Angelina Jolie's claim that he hasn't paid "meaningful child support" in the more than year-and-a-half since she filed for divorce. 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.

In the papers lodged with LA Superior Court, Pitt's lawyers said that he "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support".

The filing calls it an attempt to make it look like Angelina wanted out as soon as possible, branding it a "a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage".

Official death toll still 131 in Indonesia quake
At least 130 people were killed in the magnitude 6.9 quake that rocked the country Sunday; Greg Palkot reports. Some evacuees are grappling with the traumatic scenes of death and destruction that accompanied the quake.

In the court documents, obtained by "Good Morning America", Pitt's lawyers also contend that at a hearing last week, Jolie's attorney did not mention any child support issues and claim that asking to schedule a new hearing on the subject is "calculated to increase conflict".

"The aim of Angelina's routine court filing is to provide closure to the marriage in a way that clears a path toward the next stage of their lives and allows her and Brad to recommit as devoted co-parents to their children", the statement reads.

The two filings were rare unsealed public documents in the case that gave a glimpse into the slow-moving divorce of the 54-year-old actor Pitt and the 43-year-old actress and director Jolie Pitt. Neither side specified what those issues were.
