Why Maddox Jolie-Pitt Isn’t Required to See Dad Brad Pitt Amid Custody Drama with Angelina Jolie

  Why Maddox Jolie-Pitt Isn’t Required to See Dad Brad Pitt Amid Custody Drama with Angelina Jolie The custody battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie just heated up. Brad Pitt is getting in some time with his kids per a court order — but it doesn’t apply to his eldest son. Before he starts filming his latest movie, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Pitt is visiting London thanks to a court-mandated schedule that allows him to spend time with his children, who live full-time with mom Angelina Jolie as she films Maleficent 2 in the U.K. A judge involved in Pitt and Jolie’s divorce proceedings stated in court documents obtained by PEOPLE on Tuesday that it’s “critical” for each of the kids to have a “healthy and strong relationship with their father” and that the actress could lose full custody of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox if they are prevented from properly bonding with their dad. The court laid out a detailed plan for how many hours per day Pitt, 54, will spend with each child through July 29. But his oldest son isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father. The other five children, though, must abide by the strict schedule.

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.

"It's deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening," a spokesperson for the actress told The Blast on June 13.

Angelina Jolie Barred from Monitoring Kids' Phones Amidst Threat of Losing Custody

  Angelina Jolie Barred from Monitoring Kids' Phones Amidst Threat of Losing Custody A judge is enabling Brad Pitt unrestricted phone access to his children with Angelina Jolie. According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Pitt, 54, must be allowed to have the cell phone number of each child, and can text and call with them without supervision from Jolie, 43. The story was originally reported by The Blast. “The importance there is that Brad is allowed to call them at any time and he can call them directly on their own phone,” David Glass, a family law attorney and former therapist who has no connection to the case, tells PEOPLE. “The presumption there is that maybe in the past he has tried to call the children through their mother and that the mother hasn’t passed along the phone call or has said they’re not available or doesn’t answer the phone, so the court is providing this direct access and preventing Angelina from interfering,” he added.

Angelina Jolie filed for sole physical custody of their brood in divorce papers. In a statement released to PEOPLE following Jolie ’ s filing, Pitt said his focus is on the “well-being of our kids .” WATCH: Brad and Angelina Through The Years.

Angelina Jolie has responded to the news of the conclusion of a child abuse investigation against her estranged husband, Brad Pitt. With a statement from her rep, the 41-year-old actress has communicated her thoughts on her ongoing custody drama with Pitt to fans and noted her

On June 12, court records were leaked indicating that Angelina could lose primary custody of she and Brad's six children. The documents obtained by The Blast say that "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to the kids. The documents add that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother."

Those same court records revealed details of Brad's summer custody schedule.

"If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with [Angelina] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Brad]," the court told Angie, who split with Brad in 2016.

The court, however, is letting 16-year-old Maddox essentially decide how much time he wants to spend with Brad because he's older. In addition to Maddox, Brad and Angelina share Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox.

During the children's time with their father, Angelina is only allowed to call them one time, and she's forbidden from monitoring their cell phones.

In the new blistering statement, Angie's team argues that the reports are "misleading" and "not in the best interests of the children."

"From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately," the statement read.

Brad Pitt Relieved to Be Able to See His Children More: 'He’s Been Missing His Kids Like Crazy' .
 Brad Pitt is thrilled to be spending more time with his children. “It’s been obvious that he has been missing his kids like crazy,” a source tells PEOPLE. “To live so close to them, but not seeing them often, has definitely been painful for him.” Last week, a judge presiding over Pitt, 54, and Angelina Jolie’s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for the actor to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, who reside with Jolie as she films Maleficent 2 in London. The kids normally reside in Los Angeles with Jolie, where Pitt also lives. The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt. Maddox, 16, his oldest son isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father. “There has never been a set schedule. It all seemed very strange and unorganized,” the source says of the couple’s previous custody arraignments. “Brad was always an amazing dad. The kids have always been his life. He has flaws like most people, but so does Angie,” the source adds. “Brad must be so relieved that the court is now helping him.” Pitt was able to celebrate Father’s Day with the kids in London this weekend.
