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.
The court stated that if Jolie fails to comply to the new terms then she risks losing primary custody.
According to The Blast, a judge in the couple's ongoing divorce case said it would be "harmful" for the children if they had no relationship with their father as it's in their best interest to spend time with each parent. 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.
The judge's orders also requires Jolie to give Pitt the kids' cell phone numbers and allow him to call them; they also clarify that she is not allowed to read their texts to their dad.
From June 27 to July 1, the actor's time with his kids is upped to 10 hours a day and a child therapist will be present.

She also must arrange a call between the kids and their doctors so it can be explained to them that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father". The Fight Club actor will have physical custody of the minor children (all but Maddox) for four hours a day from June 8 to 17 in London, where the Maleficent actress rents a house.

The report details a new custody schedule for the summer too. She is also barred from reading the children's text messages with their father and can not give out a number to a cell phone that she monitors. During this 10-day period, Pitt shall spend time with each child at least twice. He will have custody again from August 11 until the estranged couple's next court hearing on August 13. From July 8 through July 14, Pitt gets the kids for four consecutive days. When he returns to LA, Pitt will have custody of the kids from July 21-29.
He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, in addition to paying for their transportation.
If Angelina does not allow her children to spend more time with Brad, she may lose primary custody. "Brad will be wherever he needs to be for the kids".
