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.

The latest twist brings new heat to the ongoing custody battle, which began when Jolie filed suddenly for divorce from Pitt in September 2016.

From June 8 until June 17, Pitt will spend four hours per day with at least one of the younger children - Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, or twins Knox and Vivienne, 9 - in the United Kingdom, where Jolie is filming Maleficent.

At the time of the breakup, he was investigated and cleared by authorities over abuse allegations relating to an incident on a private jet. The documents obtained by The Blast say that "not having a relationship with their father is harmful" to the kids.

On June 12, court records were leaked indicating that Angelina could lose primary custody of she and Brad's six children.

Reps for Pitt, 54, or Jolie, 43, have not commented.

"Brad and Angelina have had a very hard time co-parenting because the end of their marriage was so turbulent", the source says.

When the children are with Jolie, Pitt will be allowed to call each child's cell phone when he wants, and Jolie must provide him with each child's cell phone number.

The court order also includes a summer visitation schedule between Los Angeles and London. Pitt will have custody of the kids from June 8 until June 17 for four hours per day while he's in London, where Jolie has a rental home.

However, one spokesperson for Angelina told ET that the "misleading leak" of the docs 'is not in the best interests of the children'. From June 27 to July 1, he will get custody for 10 hours per day. If all goes well Brad will be allowed custody of the kids from 21 July through 29 July back in LA, with travelling arrangements to be made by both parents, People magazine reports.

Glass also said: "It's a rare case where the court will find that someone alienated the kids".

For now, Pitt is travelling back and forwards from London, where the children are doing school work in a trailer on the movie set.

Brangelina worked through a summer schedule over the phone with their kids and two psychologists, with eldest child Maddox apparently allowed to choose how much time he spends with either parent due to his age. They need to be listened to.

"I've been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories".
