Why Angelina Jolie Could Lose Custody of Her Kids to Brad Pitt

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt

The actress now has sole custody of Maddox, 16 Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

At the end of July Pitt will be able to see them in Los Angeles for a week from July 21 to 29.

The Maleficent star is not to read any text messages between the children and their father, or secretly monitor calls.

The Superior Court of Los Angeles County ruled that the six children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship" with both parents.

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 report details a new custody schedule for the summer too.

Some are wondering, how long will this drama go on?

Last month it was reported that Jolie wasn't happy about the delay in getting approval in bringing her kids over to London with her while she films the second installment of Maleficent. Pitt will have physical custody of the minor children (except Maddox) for four hours a day from June 8-17 in London, where the Jolie rents a home during filming.

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. At 16, Maddox is deemed old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with his dad, but his younger siblings will be seeing Pitt a lot more.

Sources told E! News that the rift has "dragged on for months, ' is at the heart of 'why the divorce is not final" yet almost two years after Jolie filed.

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.

Angelina Jolie has allegedly been ordered to allow estranged husband Brad Pitt to spend more time with their children.

He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, in addition to paying for their transportation.

The court also outlined a new custody schedule for the children for the northern summer.

Reps for Pitt, 54, or Jolie, 43, have not commented. The doctors will also spend time with the kids while in L.A.

The temporary custody arrangement has been broken down week by week until August. Jolie can not be present or attempt to interfere.
