Angelina Jolie might have to surrender primary custody of her six children to their father, Brad Pitt, if she isn't able to meet new guidelines stipulated by the court, recent documents obtained by multiple publications say.
News, a judge determined that the kids "not having a relationship with their father is harmful", adding that it is "critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
According to The Blast, a judge ruled that if she doesn't help fix her children's relationship with her ex, she could lose primary custody.
Angelina Jolie ordered to give Brad Pitt more time with kids
The latest twist brings new heat to the ongoing custody battle, which began when Jolie filed suddenly for divorce from Pitt in September 2016.
Nearly two years after their much-publicised split, former Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still working out the finer details of a custody arrangement for their six kids - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, 9. In addition, Jolie is barred from being present during or interfering with Pitt's custodial time. 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.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Brad and Angelina's reps for further comment.
Pitt then gets custody for 10 hours per day from June 27 through July 1, once again designating one or two children to be with at a time.
Later in the month, from 8 to 14 July, Brad will be allowed to spend four consecutive days with the kids.
According to reports, Angelina Jolie might be in danger of losing custody of her six children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, Knox, 9, and Vivienne, 9.
If Angelina does not allow her children to spend more time with Brad, she may lose primary custody.
The court laid out specific dates and hours that Jolie, 43, must make her younger children available to their father, 54, this summer: both in London, where she is shooting "Maleficent 2", and in Los Angeles.
In fact, the judge even ordered Jolie to give all of the children's cell phone numbers to Brad, something he may not have had access to before. That proximity has allowed the children visit their father "a few times a week" - when they are in town. Finally, before summer holidays finish, the kids will spend a whole week in Los Angeles with their dad.
"You see them a couple hours a day and that starts leading to full days and eventually if things go well it leads to overnights, so you're slowly acclimating the kids to the parent who's been cut out of the kids lives".
