Almost two years after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, the former power couple have reached a new temporary custody agreement over their six children for this summer, Us Weekly confirms.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, a judge in Angelina and Brad's divorce case determined that the former couple's six children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and adds that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
The primary custody loss could happen if the Changeling star doesn't attempt to improve her relationship with Pitt.
Angelina and Brad split in September 2016 after two years of marriage, but they had been partners for almost 12 years.
Nearly two years after their much-publicised split, former Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still working out the finer details of a custody arrangement for their six kids - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, 9. While in Pitt's care, Jolie is only allowed to call the children one time per day and at a time agreed upon by both parents.
While Jolie is in the United Kingdom filming Maleficent from June 8 until June 17, Pitt will get to spend time with at least one of his younger five children for at least four hours a day under the supervision of a doctor. The court determined that Maddox, 16, was old enough to decide how he wants to split his time between his parents. The court also said that a child therapist will be present, either for the visits themselves or to check in with the children after the visits.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Brad and Angelina's reps for further comment. Then from June 27 through July 1, he will get custody of them for 10 hours per day.
While the scheduling agreement states that Angelina is not allowed to be present during Brad's time with the kids, a child psychologist has to be. The court stated that the kids "are safe with their father". 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.
Jolie has reportedly been given a parenting blueprint by the judge, including asking her to give Pitt each child's mobile phone numbers so he can call anytime.
At the end of July Pitt will be able to see them in Los Angeles for a week from July 21 to 29. A child therapist will also be with the children during this time.
Jolie can only call once a day when the kids are with the actor.
If Angelina does not allow her children to spend more time with Brad, she may lose primary custody.
