Angelina Jolie ordered to give Brad Pitt more time with their kids

Angelina Jolie ordered to give Brad Pitt more time with their kids

Angelina Jolie's team is responding to a court mandate that requires her to help patch up the relationship between Brad Pitt and their children.

A judge hearing the couple's divorce case said in court documents obtained by people.com: "It is critical that each of [the] children have a healty and strong relationship with their father and mother".

Jolie was also told that she had to call each of the kids' doctors and pass on the information that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father".

From June 27 to July 1, at least one of the children will spend ten hours per day with Pitt. Brad also spoke about the split to GQ, explaining: "This house was always chaotic and insane, voices and bangs coming from everywhere, and then, as you see, there are days like this: very...very solemn".

On July 21, the children will return to Los Angeles to stay with Pitt at home - but are expected to return to the United Kingdom on July 29.

It may even "result in the court ordering primary physical custody" to Pitt.

The court also laid out a summer schedule for each of the children except Maddox, who is old enough to decide how much time he wants to spend with Pitt, the documents read. There are also dates scheduled for the actor to have custody later on in July. "She wants to take the kids to London with her while she's shooting (a film)- and she's frustrated with the process".

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

In some ways, the globe-trotting Jolie has come to resent Pitt for "essentially forcing her to settle down in Los Angeles with the kids", Us Weekly reported in May.

"Just talking badly about the other parent and the kids start to internalize what the other parent is telling them". Even the people around her are getting exhausted of it'.

Jolie and Pitt split in 2016 amid allegations of child abuse against Pitt during an incident aboard a private plane.

The source says the new agreement is a "breakthrough" for Jolie and Pitt, explaining that the two have had little communication with one another leading up to it.
