Nearly two years after their much-publicised split, former Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still working out the finer details of a custody arrangement for their six kids - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, 9.

The judge has even laid down a strict new cell phone policy - Brad will now be able to call and text each child at will - without Angelina monitoring the convos.

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 - she has with her estranged husband, but according to new court papers, she could lose that custody arrangement the Fight Club star doesn't spend more time with his brood.

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.

Brad will have several more periods of access to the kids through July and early August, with another court hearing set for August 13 to determine next steps. The schedule involves each child except for Maddox, who is being allowed to make his own choices because he is older.

From July 8 through July 14, Pitt gets the kids for four consecutive days and gets to choose how he fills those time slots and with which children.

Pitt then gets custody for 10 hours per day from June 27 through July 1, once again designating one or two children to be with at a time.

Jolie, 42, specifically is frustrated that their custody issues continue to drag on, stalling the couple's ability to finalize their divorce, Page Six reported.

The court, however, is letting 16-year-old Maddox essentially decide how much time he wants to spend with Brad because he's older.

From July 21 through July 29, Pitt will get custody of the kids when he's back in California.

In 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, around the same time he was accused of a child abuse incident while on board a private plane which he was eventually cleared of.

According to The Blast, the court went as far to state: '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]'.

While in the care of Pitt, Jolie is only allowed to call the kids one time per day at a time agreed on in advance by both parents.

The source told the outlet that 'Angelina has been in London and is free to travel for shorter periods of time, ' as 'Brad isn't opposed to that. but she can't leave with the kids for several months'.
