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.

Documents obtained by the website show that a judge in the couple's divorce case has determined that their children could be harmed by "not having a relationship with their father".

According to the documents, Angelina must provide Brad with the cell phone number of each child, and allow him to call whenever he wants. In addition, Jolie is barred from being present during or interfering with Pitt's custodial time. The report states that Angie will need to switch up how she lets the kids interact with Pitt as the judge finds the current setup "harmful" to the children. The court also said that a child therapist will be present, either for the visits themselves or to check in with the children after the visits.

Reps for Pitt, 54, or Jolie, 43, have not commented.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attend the 15th annual AFI Awards at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. Then from June 27 through July 1, he will get custody of them for 10 hours per day.


At the end of July Pitt will be able to see them in Los Angeles for a week from July 21 to 29. Jolie and the kids were also spotted celebrating her 43rd birthday at an amusement park.

Based on the new court docs, it looks like Brad is willing to meet his estranged ex-wife in the middle - by traveling halfway around the globe for scheduled meetings with his children that are to be chaperoned by a psychologist!

Angelina Jolie at her children Maddox, Zahara, Pax and Shiloh at New Tokyo International Airport in Narita in 2010. The court also forbid her from reading the text messages that Brad sends to his children.

Maddox was not included in the arrangement because at 16-years-old, the court determined he was old enough to decide how much time to spend with Pitt on his own.

Angelina and Brad split in September 2016 after two years of marriage, but they had been partners for almost 12 years.


Pitt was cleared of allegations of child abuse by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services in November 2016.

At the time of the breakup, he was investigated and cleared by authorities over abuse allegations relating to an incident on a private jet.

The couple have been locked in divorce negotiations for months with visitation for Pitt causing the most tension.

Us Weekly confirmed the accuracy of the documents. In late July, they'll be with him in L.A. for about a week.
