Why Angelina Jolie Could Lose Custody of Her Kids to Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie needs to do a much better job of fostering her six children's relationship with their father Brad Pitt, or she risks losing primary custody of them, according to a ruling by a family court judge that has been detailed by The Blast.

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.

According to documents, the issue stems from the children's lack of relationship with their father due to the amount of time they are spending with Jolie. The court stated that the kids "are safe with their father".

When the children are with Jolie, Pitt will be allowed to call each child's cell phone when he wants, and Jolie must provide him with each child's cell phone number.

"With Ange set to film the Maleficent sequel in the United Kingdom over the northern summer, the outlet reports that Brad will have access to the five younger kids for "four hours a day from June 8 - 17 in London", adding that "[Brad] must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10-day period with one of the [family] psychologists present.

Brad will not have all the kids at once, but he'll designate one or two of the children to spend time with at a time.

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.

With an alleged physical altercation between Brad and Maddox occurring on a private plane in September 2016 and apparently prompting Ange to file for divorce, the custody situation has always been tense between the exes, who were together for 12 years and married for two.

From June 27 to July 1, the actor again gets custody of one or two children at a time for ten hours, and the children will be accompanied by a child therapist.

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.

At the end of July Pitt will be able to see them in Los Angeles for a week from July 21 to 29.

The Allied star will spend four hours a day with his kids from June 8 to June 17 in London, which is where Jolie is filming Maleficent 2. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London afterward.

Following their split, Pitt was investigated by multiple agencies after Jolie alleged that he had a drinking problem and was abusive to their children.

If Angelina does not allow her children to spend more time with Brad, she may lose primary custody.
