News, a judge determined that the kids "not having a relationship with their father is harmful", adding that it is "critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother".
The Moneyball actor and Jolie, sources told Page Six, "are figuring out how it would work, but she is not happy" amid the negotiations. The children were most recently with their mother in London, where she is filming Maleficent 2.
The pair separated in September 2016.
Nearly two years after their much-publicised split, former Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still working out the finer details of a custody arrangement for their six kids - Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, 9.
The judge has even laid down a strict new cell phone policy - Brad will now be able to call and text each child at will - without Angelina monitoring the convos. The court also bars her from reading the children's text messages with Pitt or from giving out a number to a phone that she secretly monitors.

Brad Pitt scored a major victory with respect to temporary custody of his kids with Angelina Jolie - and the court issued the actress a stern warning. Maddox, 16, was left out of these plans because according to the court, he is old enough to decide how long he wants to stay with each parent. Angie is not allowed to be present during any of the visits, but a child therapist will be there for much of the time. A therapist will be present during that time and will meet with the kids before and after each two day period. He also has custody for four hours a day from July 8 to 14. Jolie is responsible for the children traveling back to Los Angeles, and Pitt will be responsible for getting them back to London. Pitt will choose one or two of the minor children to see at a time and during this period, he gets to spend time with each child at least twice.
And it looks like the Brangelina divorce is throwing out all sorts of ugly bumps, twists and turns - which in Angelina Jolie's case isn't doing her any favours.
In May 2017, Pitt revealed in an interview with GQ that he had come to terms with his daily habit of relying on substances, mostly pot or alcohol, to "run from his feelings".
In the year since, the couple have continued to finalize their custody arrangements and divorce. Finally, before summer holidays finish, the kids will spend a whole week in Los Angeles with their dad.
Nonetheless, Jolie a year ago purchased a Cecile B. DeMille's lavish former estate in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles.
