Angelina Jolie Could Lose Physical Custody of Kids to Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has been put on notice by the court that if she doesn't help fix her children's relationship with Brad Pitt, she could lose primary custody.

A judge in the former couple's divorce case says that the children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them" and "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother", according to The Blast.

Jolie, who filed for divorce from Pitt in the fall of 2016, is being accused of keeping the clan away from their father and making it hard for him to call them.

Maddox is not included in this part of the deal but 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh, 9 year-old Knox, and 9-year-old Vivienne are. In advance, Pitt shall designate one or two of the minor children to spend time with at a time.

The court also specified a visitation schedule where Pitt gets allocated a certain number of hours a day to spend with his kids as he stays in London, where Jolie is now renting a home while filming Maleficent 2.

Brangelina worked through a summer schedule over the phone with their kids and two psychologists, with eldest child Maddox apparently allowed to choose how much time he spends with either parent due to his age. The therapist will meet with the children before and after each two-day period.

If the children "remain closed down" to their father, the time they spend with their mother could be cut, the judge said in the court documents. She is also barred from reading the children's text messages with their father and can not give out a number to a cell phone that she monitors. From early to mid-July, he'll have the kids for four consecutive days, and in late July they'll stay with him in Los Angeles for about a week. When he returns to LA, Pitt will have custody of the kids from July 21-29.

In fact, the judge even ordered Jolie to give all of the children's cell phone numbers to Brad, something he may not have had access to before.

The court laid out specific dates and hours that Jolie, 43, must make her younger children available to their father, 54, this summer: both in London, where she is shooting "Maleficent 2", and in Los Angeles. A child therapist will also be with the children during that time. Also, the court indicated that Angie can only call the kids once a day while they're with their dad. But Jolie and Pitt seemed to bury the hatchet in January 2017, releasing a joint statement saying they had agreed to handle their divorce in a private forum and would work together to reunify their family.
