A report leaked online claiming a judge warned Angelina Jolie she could lose primary custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow ex-husband Brad Pitt more access. But a spokesperson for Jolie has slammed this report and termed it a “misleading leak”.
In court documents obtained by People, a judge reportedly told the Hollywood actress that limiting the time Brad gets to spend with Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne is “harmful” to the kids. They also stated that the actress needed to take steps to improve their relationship with Brad.
“It is critical that each of [the six] children have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother,” the documents stated, according to People.
In the documents, that first surfaced on Tuesday, a judge is also said to have warned Angelia, who filed for divorce from Brad in 2016, that she was risking her position as the primary caregiver.
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], the document states.
Angelina Jolie’s spokesperson fired back at the leaked documents and accused someone of “leaking” the documents for “their own selfish reasons”.
The full statement from Jolie’s spokesperson reads:
This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children. From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately.
It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening.
