This week The Blast published an obtained copy of court documents which spell out exactly where and when the children will be seeing their father over the US summer.
It reveals Jolie has full custody of Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, but includes the strict stipulation that if the children aren’t allowed to have a “healthy and strong relationship” with Pitt, his ex-wife could lose that privilege.
The document strongly suggests the 54-year-old’s father-child relationships are in need of repair.
"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 [Jolie] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Pitt]," it reads.
And so the kids are scheduled to spend certain days and weeks with Pitt. But their eldest son Maddox, who Jolie adopted as a seven-month-old from a Cambodian orphanage in 2002, is not expected to stick to the same strict timeline.
