Angelina Jolie reportedly ordered to allow Brad Pitt more visitation with their kids

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's custody battle has taken yet another nasty turn.

On Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2018, The Blast exclusively reported that a Superior Court of Los Angeles County judge has ordered the actress-activist to allow her estranged ex more visitation time with their children.

According to court documents obtained by the gossip rag, Pitt must be given a minimum of "four hours every other day on school days and twelve hours every other day on non-school days." The former couple's next court hearing, which is expected to result in "further interim orders" until a permanent custody arrangement is reached, will be on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

This recent development in their ongoing divorce proceedings comes amid reports that Jolie is allegedly making it difficult for Pitt to bond with their six children: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10. According to sources cited by TMZ on Thursday, Aug. 16, the Maleficent star has reportedly continued to "exert influence" and "drive a wedge" between them following the kids' court-ordered return to Los Angeles last month.

Jolie, 43, and Pitt, 54, began dating in 2004 and secretly married ten years later, before the Changeling star officially filed for divorce in Sept. 2016, citing "irreconcilable differences." Since then, the two have been engaged in an ugly custody battle, which unfortunately doesn't seem to have a resolution in sight as they approach the two-year anniversary of their split.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Jolie and Pitt reached a temporary agreement for the summer of 2018, during which their kids would split their time between London and Los Angeles, where their parents had been filming new projects. At the time, a judge reportedly warned Jolie that she risked losing primary physical custody if she didn't follow the terms of their agreement, saying, "Not having a relationship with their father is harmful." Earlier this month, Jolie accusing Pitt of not paying "meaningful" child support following their breakup. However, the actor later claimed that he's paid her over $9 million since their separation.
