According to documents obtained by The Blast, a judge in Angelina and Brad’s divorce case determined that the former couple’s six children “not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and adds that “it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother.”
The judge also ordered Jolie to arrange a phone call with the kids and their doctors to explain to the children that “the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father.” Pitt was accused of child abuse in 2016 during an incident aboard a private plane. Pitt was eventually cleared.
One of the issues the court addresses are the children’s cell phones. According to the documents, Angelina must provide Brad with the cell phone number of each child, and allow him to call whenever he wants. Also, she is not allowed to read the children’s text messages with Brad or give out a number to a phone that she secretly monitors.
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. Because Maddox is older, the court is allowing him to decide how much time he wants to spend with his father.
Pitt gets custody from June 8 to June 17 for four hours per day while he stays in London, where Jolie currently rents a house. In advance, Pitt shall designate one or two of the minor children to spend time with at a time. During this 10-day period, Pitt shall spend time with each child at least twice. In addition, Jolie is barred from being present during or interfering with Pitt’s custodial time.
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. A child therapist will also be with the children during that time.
From July 8 through July 14, Pitt gets the kids for four consecutive days and gets to choose how he fills those time slots and with which children. The doctor is once again required to be present and will meet with the kids before and after each two day period.
From July 21 through July 29, Pitt will get custody of the kids when he’s back in California. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London afterward.
While in California, Pitt can decide whether the kids shack up at his house (the former family home) or Jolie’s L.A. house. He must also make arrangements for the children to visit with their therapists and doctors.
While in the care of Pitt, Jolie is only allowed to call the kids one time per day at a time agreed on in advance by both parents.
The court makes it clear to the former “Tomb Raider” star: “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].”
