‘No relationship with their father is harmful’: Angelina Jolie may lose custody


Pitt now sees his children - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne - a few times a week.

In an attempt to further improve access, the court has ordered Jolie to give Pitt the mobile phone numbers of each child so he can call them anytime.

Angelina Jolie could lose primary custody of her children with Brad Pitt if he is not allowed to spend more time with them, according to various reports.

Documents obtained by the website show that a judge in the couple's divorce case has determined that their children could be harmed by "not having a relationship with their father".

Brad will have several more periods of access to the kids through July and early August, with another court hearing set for August 13 to determine next steps.

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.

During this time, Pitt is required to designate one or two of the children to spend time with at a time, and must spend time with each child at least twice. Then in July, he'll get 10 hours before working up to getting the kids for four consecutive days.

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. He also has custody for four hours a day from July 8 to 14. A therapist will be present during that time and will meet with the kids before and after each two day period.

The documents said: '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 court also bars her from reading the children's text messages with Pitt or from giving out a number to a phone that she secretly monitors. A child therapist will also be with the children during that time. Jolie is not allowed to be present during Pitt's time with the children. He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, and, he must pay for their transportation.

In some ways, the globe-trotting Jolie has come to resent Pitt for "essentially forcing her to settle down in Los Angeles with the kids", Us Weekly reported in May.
