Angelina Jolie has reportedly been ordered by a judge to allow estranged husband Brad Pitt more access to their six children. The exes have yet to complete negotiations on their divorce after announcing their separation two years ago, with Brad’s visitation rights at the centre of the rift. Angelina, 43, reportedly wanted to take her children – Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – to London this summer while she films Maleficent 2. But now, according to court documents obtained by the, the Superior Court of Los Angeles has determined that ‘not having a relationship with their father would be harmful’ to the six children.


The court even stated that if Angelina fails to comply with the new terms and schedule of the agreement, she could lose primary custody. 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].’ Brangelina worked through a summer schedule over the phone with their kids and two psychologists, with eldest child Maddox apparently allowed to choose how much time he spends with either parent due to his age. Brad, 54, will be permitted to see the minor children for four hours a day in London for ten days mid-June, while from 27 June to 1 July he will reportedly get the kids for ten hours a day. From 8 July to 14 July, he can see the children for four hours a day.

The kids will then visit Pitt in LA from 21 to 29 July, with Brad responsible for taking them back to London after this. The Fight Club actor will then have custody from 11 August until 13 August, which is when the exes have their next hearing. The website claims Angelina can only call the children once a day while they are with her ex-husband; while the children will continue to see a therapist with Brad while in LA. Family law attorney David Glass told People: ‘The schedule worked out by the court is the typical post-alienation reunification schedule.
