Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reached a new temporary custody agreement over their six children, nearly two years after their shock split, Us Weekly confirms. 

According to court documents, the Superior Court of Los Angeles County determined that ‘not having a relationship with their father would be harmful,’ to Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9. 

The court determined that the children ‘are safe with their father’ and that it is ‘critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship’ with both of their parents.

However, Maddox is essentially free to go with either parent because of his age.

The documents state that Pitt, 54, will have physical custody of the minor children (all except Maddox) for four hours a day from June 8 to 17 in London, where Jolie, 43, will be filming Maleficent 2

Pitt must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10 day period with a psychologists present. Jolie will not be present during her estranged husband’s custodial time.

The documents add that Pitt will have custody of the kids from July 21 to 29. He is reportedly responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, in addition to paying for their transportation. He will have custody again from August 11 until the estranged couple’s next court hearing on August 13.

A source told the Us, ‘This [divorce] has been a longstanding back-and-forth, and hopefully now there will be greater collaboration for the benefit of the kids. The kids have always been a priority for both parents and hopefully everyone will comply with the court order going forward. Brad will be wherever he needs to be for the kids.’
