But now, according to court documents obtained by the DailyMail.com, the Superior Court of Los Angeles has determined that "not having a relationship with their father would be harmful" to the six children.
According to TMZ, Jolie could lose primary custody of the couple's children if she doesn't make some changes.
49 jobs at risk as discount retailer calls in administrators
Administrators Deloitte have stressed the stores will continue to operate as normal for the moment, with no redundancies. A string of restaurant chains including Prezzo, Jamie's Italian and Carluccio's have also shut sites and axed staff.
The latest twist brings new heat to the ongoing custody battle, which began when Jolie filed suddenly for divorce from Pitt in September 2016.
A visitation schedule has been laid out for Brad to spend time with the kids - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - while they are in London, where Angelina is shooting Maleficent 2. Pitt will host one or two of the minor at a time, and will spend time with each child at least twice.
"With Ange set to film the Maleficent sequel in the United Kingdom over the northern summer, the outlet reports that Brad will have access to the five younger kids for "four hours a day from June 8 - 17 in London", adding that "[Brad] must spend time with each child at least twice during the 10-day period with one of the [family] psychologists present. The arrangement applies to all kids, except the eldest Maddox, 16, who is allowed to decide how much time he wants to spend with each of his parents, Daily Mail reports. The doctor is once again required to be present and will meet with the kids before and after each two day period. It is Jolie's responsibility to fly them to LA, and he will fly them back to London. Also, she is not allowed to read the children's text messages with Brad or give out a number to a phone that she secretly monitors. Upon his return to Los Angeles, Pitt will have custody of the kids from July 21 to 29. Jolie is not allowed to be present during Pitt's time with the children. A child therapist will also be with the children during that time.

The president said the drills cost the US a " tremendous amount of money ", and that South Korea hasn't always chipped in enough. The KCNA report called the military drills a "provocation" - the same word used by Trump in Singapore to describe the decision.
Us Weekly confirmed the accuracy of the documents.
Reps for Jolie, 43, and Pitt, 54, are yet to respond to media requests for comment.
If the children "remain closed down" to their father, the time they spend with their mother could be cut, the judge said in the court documents. "She will come out to L.A.to visit him this summer as he is filming, but she has a life of her own in Boston".
