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.

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".

The bitter custody battle for the six children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues.

While eldest son Maddox, 16, will get to choose his own custody arrangements, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk was clear that moving forward, Brad will have more contact with the younger children, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 9.

The Allied star will spend four hours a day with his kids from June 8 to June 17 in London, which is where Jolie is filming Maleficent 2.

The court, however, is letting 16-year-old Maddox essentially decide how much time he wants to spend with Brad because he's older. The therapist will also be there and will meet with the children before and after each two day period.

Angelina Jolie could lose custody of her kids to Brad Pitt unless she follows court orders

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

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.

While the scheduling agreement states that Angelina is not allowed to be present during Brad's time with the kids, a child psychologist has to be. She is also barred from reading the children's text messages with their father and can not give out a number to a cell phone that she monitors. Jolie will handle the kids' travel from London to L.A., and Pitt will handle their return trip to London.

At the end of July Pitt will be able to see them in Los Angeles for a week from July 21 to 29.

The judge also ordered Jolie to arrange a phone call with the kids and their doctors to explain to the children that "the court has determined that each of them are safe with their father".

A judge stated that Jolie must provide Pitt with each child's cell phone number and that he is allowed to call whenever he wants. A child therapist will also be with the children during this time. But Jolie and Pitt seemed to bury the hatchet in January 2017, releasing a joint statement saying they had agreed to handle their divorce in a private forum and would work together to reunify their family.
