What Court Docs Reveal About Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Custody Case

What Court Docs Reveal About Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Custody Case

Angelina Jolie needs to start playing fair with her estranged husband Brad Pitt or she could risk losing custody of their children.

According to The Blast, a judge in the couple's ongoing divorce case said it would be "harmful" for the children if they had no relationship with their father as it's in their best interest to spend time with each parent.

As reported originally by The Blast, Pitt has also been given unrestricted phone access to his children.

The court has also laid out a summer schedule for the children.

Because he's 16, Maddox gets to decide how much time he wants to spend with his father.

The court makes it clear to the former "Tomb Raider" star: "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 Fury actor is set to spend time with his kids 8 June to 17 June for four hours per day while he stays in London, where Jolie now rents a house.

Angelina Jolie Could Lose Physical Custody of Kids to Brad Pitt

The documents outline a summer schedule, detailing when Brad will be allowed to see the kids. 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 June 27 to July 1 he will get the children for 10 hours a day and then in July he will see them from July 8 to 14 for four hours a day.

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. 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. The doctor is once again required to be present and will meet with the kids before and after each two day period.

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. He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, and, he must pay for their transportation.

Jolie can't be present during the visits, but a child psychologist will be. 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.

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.

Jolie and Pitt split in 2016 amid allegations of child abuse against Pitt during an incident aboard a private plane.
