Angelina And Brad's Divorce Is Getting Messy

Angelina And Brad's Divorce Is Getting Messy

Brad Pitt went for a bike ride on Wednesday, June 13, after news broke that his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, was ordered to give him more time with their children.

The Superior Court of Los Angeles County ruled that the six children "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship" with both parents.

Additionally, the judge laid out a new cellphone policy stating Jolie must provide Pitt with the cell number of each child so he can text or call each of them at will and without Jolie monitoring the conversations. She is not allowed to read text messages between him and the children.

From June 27 to July 1, Pitt gets more time with at least one of the younger five children, with 10 hours a day.

Trump breaks with G7 joint statement
Trump tried to lighten the mood friday with the summit host. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't", he wrote. But the lead ministers from both countries talked trade on the sidelines of the G7 leaders' meeting on Friday.

From July 8 through July 14, Pitt will spend four consecutive days with the kids.

A judge approved Jolie and Pitt's original custody agreement in December 2016, granting Jolie physical custody of all six children.

Pitt will then get custody of the kids in California from July 21 to July 29, where they will visit their therapists and doctors on occasion.

Trump says Canadian leader Justin Trudeau 'learned' from trade comments
In contrast, Trump was mostly smiles with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Monday, and said talks between them were "top-of-the-line". The president said he was annoyed by Trudeau's comments about not letting Canada get pushed around.

The schedule doesn't include Maddox, 16, because he's older and the judge has decided that he should decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with his father. However, she still struggles whenever the kids are away from her, even when they are with their father. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles, and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London.

The actor will have custody again from August 11 until the former couple's next court hearing on August 13. "Brad will be wherever he needs to be for the kids". According to documents obtained by ET at the time, Pitt would continue to have agreed-upon therapeutic visitations with the kids, as determined by the family's therapist who "shall at all times consider the best interests of the minor children".

Angelina has reportedly gone over the new custody details with her children so that they are all aware of their schedule for this summer. That's where the kids can work out whatever issues they have.

In the immediate aftermath of the split, Jolie sought sole physical custody of all the children. So a hypothetical, if dad screams and yells at the kids and doesn't treat them nicely, the kids stop wanting to see dad, that's estrangement.
