Angelina Jolie Could Lose Primary Custody Of Her Kids With Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie Could Lose Primary Custody Of Her Kids With Brad Pitt

The court, however, is letting 16-year-old Maddox essentially decide how much time he wants to spend with Brad because he's older.

Angelina Jolie has allegedly been ordered to allow estranged husband Brad Pitt to spend more time with their children.

The former couple have been battling back and forth about where their six children will reside over the summer - Angelina fighting for them to travel with her to Europe and stay with her while she films Maleficent 2 and Brad wanting them to stay in Los Angeles where he can see them regularly.

However, the judge sent a strong word of caution to Jolie, saying "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to all of the children, and adding "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother". However, she still struggles whenever the kids are away from her, even when they are with their father.

To even the playing field, the judge has granted 54-year-old Pitt visitation rights over the USA summer holidays. The schedule involves each child except for Maddox, who is being allowed to make his own choices because he is older.

Pitt then gets custody for 10 hours per day from June 27 through July 1, once again designating one or two children to be with at a time.

"If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with (Jolie) and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to (Pitt)", the documents state, according to the reports. During this 10-day period, Pitt shall spend time with each child at least twice.

If she does not respect the new rules, she could lose custody of her children.

Pitt will then get custody of the kids in California from July 21 to July 29, where they will visit their therapists and doctors on occasion. Pitt will have custody again from August 11 until the next scheduled court hearing on August 13.

At the time of the breakup, he was investigated and cleared by authorities over abuse allegations relating to an incident on a private jet.

He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, in addition to paying for their transportation.

The couple initially separated in a nasty, high-profile breakup in September 2016.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attend the 15th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on January 9, 2015. 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.

When the kids are staying with their dad, Jolie can only call them once a day at a prearranged time.
