Actress Angelina Jolie is reportedly at risk of losing primary custody of her kids with Brad Pitt.
The “Tomb Raider” star is being forced to take necessary steps to improve her children’s relationship with their father.
A judge overseeing the two actor’s ongoing divorce battle said the six children “not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” while adding that “it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother,” according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
The judge reportedly took it a step further and also ordered Jolie to give their children cellphones that Pitt can call whenever he’d like without Jolie monitoring. She’s also not allowed to read text messages sent by their father. The judge also issued out a summer schedule for each of the children except Maddox, who is old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with Pitt, the document states.
Pitt has reportedly been granted custody from June 8 to June 17 for four hours per day while he stays in London, where Jolie rents a house. Pitt reportedly gets to spend time with one or two of the minor children at a time. The “Ocean’s 13” star also has to spend time with each child at least twice during this 10-day period.
Jolie is reportedly not allowed to be present during or interfering with Pitt’s custodial time, the documents said. Pitt also has custody of his kids from July 8 through July 14, when a doctor will be required to be present and will meet with the kids before and after each two-day period. The “Benjamin Button” star will also have custody from July 21 through July 29 in California.
“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 documents read.
A spokesperson for Angelina Jolie released a statement to PageSix blasting the “misleading leak”.
“This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children. From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately. It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening.”
