According to The Blast, a judge in the couple's ongoing divorce case said it would be "harmful" for the children if they had no relationship with their father as it's in their best interest to spend time with each parent.

Among these steps are giving Pitt her kids' cell phone numbers and allowing him to call anytime, without monitoring their calls or reading their texts with him.

It was also revealed that Jolie reads through her children's text messages and the judge has asked her to end that odd habit.

The 43-year-old actress now has primary custody over the six children - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Brangelina worked through a summer schedule over the phone with their kids and two psychologists, with eldest child Maddox apparently allowed to choose how much time he spends with either parent due to his age.

"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)", the documents state, according to the reports.

Pitt will spend June 8 to June 17 with the kids for four hours a day while he stays in London, where his ex-wife is now renting a home and shooting Maleficent 2.

At the time of the breakup, he was investigated and cleared by authorities over abuse allegations relating to an incident on a private jet.

Brad Pitt scored a major victory with respect to temporary custody of his kids with Angelina Jolie - and the court issued the actress a stern warning.

- During this period, Pitt should be able to designate one or two of his children to spend time with, and Jolie is barred from being present during these times.

Angelina and Brad split in September 2016 after two years of marriage, but they had been partners for almost 12 years. The therapist will also be there and will meet with the children before and after each two day period.

While in California, Pitt can decide whether the kids shack up at his house (the former family home) or Jolie's L.A. house.

Pitt then gets custody again for 10 hours per day from 27 June through 1 July, before getting all his children for four consecutive days between 8 July and 14 July. On July 21, the kids will travel back to Los Angeles to be with their dad, before heading back across the pond on July 29 to join their mother. That proximity has allowed the children visit their father "a few times a week" - when they are in town.
