Judge orders Angelina Jolie to give Brad Pitt more time with kids

Wednesday, 13 Jun, 2018

The arrangement kicked off on June 8, with Pitt granted access to the kids for four hours per day as he visits them in London, where Jolie is now filming Maleficent 2.

According to the documents, Angelina must provide Brad with the cell phone number of each child, and allow him to call whenever he wants.

Jolie, 43, who has primary physical custody of their six children, has been told by a judge that she must let Pitt, 54, see the kids regularly while she films Maleficent 2 in the United Kingdom this summer.

According to a new report, the judge in the couple's divorce case believes it's "harmful" to the children if Angelina continues to restrict access to Brad. She also must arrange a call between the kids and their doctors so it can be explained to them that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father".

The report details a new custody schedule for the summer too. Pitt will have physical custody of the minor children (except Maddox) for four hours a day from June 8-17 in London, where the Jolie rents a home during filming.

The primary custody loss could happen if the Changeling star doesn't attempt to improve her relationship with Pitt.

The Moneyball actor will have custody of the minor children for 10 hours each day from June 27 to July 1 with the other psychologist present.

Brad Pitt scored a major victory with respect to temporary custody of his kids with Angelina Jolie - and the court issued the actress a stern warning. The schedule doesn't include Maddox, 16, because he's older and the judge has decided that he should decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with his father.

At the time of the breakup, he was investigated and cleared by authorities over abuse allegations relating to an incident on a private jet. Jolie is barred from reading the children's text messages with her ex-husband. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London afterward.

Sources told E! News that the rift has "dragged on for months, ' is at the heart of 'why the divorce is not final" yet almost two years after Jolie filed.

In the spirit of strengthening the relationship with Pitt, the court has laid out a summer schedule for the children, minus Maddox, to spend time with the actor over the summer.

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