Angelina Jolie is dangerously close to losing primary physical custody of her and Brad Pitt's six children if she doesn't switch up the how she lets the kids interact with dad.

A judge in Jolie and Pitt's divorce case stated that the children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and added that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".

In an attempt to further improve access, the court has ordered Jolie to give Pitt the mobile phone numbers of each child so he can call them anytime. Pitt will have physical custody of the minor children (except Maddox) for four hours a day from June 8-17 in London, where the Jolie rents a home during filming.

The report details a new custody schedule for the summer too. Pitt was accused of child abuse in 2016 during an incident aboard a private plane.

The arrangement kicked off on June 8, with Pitt granted access to the kids for four hours per day as he visits them in London, where Jolie is now filming Maleficent 2.

From July 8 to July 14, Pitt will again choose which children to spend time with and will have custody for four consecutive days. Pitt will spend time with each child at least twice during this period and will designate one or two of the children for each visit in advance.

The Moneyball actor will have custody of the minor children for 10 hours each day from June 27 to July 1 with the other psychologist present.

In the spirit of strengthening the relationship with Pitt, the court has laid out a summer schedule for the children, minus Maddox, to spend time with the actor over the summer.

From the documents cited by The Blast, it appears that the actress, director and humanitarian is not cooperating as much as she should in allowing Pitt to spend time with their kids this summer or in letting them have cell phone and text message contact with him that she's not monitoring. He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, and, he must pay for their transportation. The judge also requested that the calls and texts not be monitored by Jolie.

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.

Following their split, Pitt was investigated by multiple agencies after Jolie alleged that he had a drinking problem and was abusive to their children.
