In addition, the Tomb Raider actress must provide Pitt with "each of the minor children's personal cellphone numbers so that [he] may text them", according to the documents obtained by Us.

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

News, a judge determined that the kids "not having a relationship with their father is harmful", adding that it is "critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother". He will have custody again from August 11 until the estranged couple's next court hearing on August 13.

The former couple have been battling back and forth about where their six children will reside over the summer - Angelina fighting for them to travel with her to Europe and stay with her while she films Maleficent 2 and Brad wanting them to stay in Los Angeles where he can see them regularly. "She has no more choice in the matter, so she feels a bit helpless, and a loss of control".

"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]", stated the legal documents.

The papers detail the children's summer visitation with Brad in London and L.A., and say that a psychologist or psychiatrist will be present for the United Kingdom meetings.

Some are wondering, how long will this drama go on? She's in London filming the sequel to Maleficent and Brad is going to get plenty of summer time with the kids across the pond. 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 Blast reports Jolie could lose primary custody if she doesn't work on her relationship with Pitt.

Sources told E! News that the rift has "dragged on for months, ' is at the heart of 'why the divorce is not final" yet almost two years after Jolie filed.

As for 16-year-old Maddox, he'll get to decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with dad.

Later in the month, from 8 to 14 July, Brad will be allowed to spend four consecutive days with the kids. He is responsible for returning them back to Jolie in London on July 29, and, he must pay for their transportation.

The court has also laid out a summer schedule for the children.

California law favors joint custody in divorce cases, although final arrangements are often agreed to by parents and formalized in a written agreement.

Reps for Jolie, 43, and Pitt, 54, are yet to respond to media requests for comment.

In some ways, the globe-trotting Jolie has come to resent Pitt for "essentially forcing her to settle down in Los Angeles with the kids", Us Weekly reported in May.
