According to leaked court documents, the judge in their case also believes that Pitt should have time with his children.
“It is critical each of (the Jolie-Pitt children) have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother,” read the document.

It also stated that not having a relationship with Pitt would be “harmful” to the kids. The judge went on to write that Jolie must allow her kids to build relationships with their dad, and if she doesn’t, she could lose primary custody.
An insider says that Pitt “has taken the high road” throughout the divorce proceedings, and he could have asked the judge to intervene much sooner than he did. But, he got to the point where he was “done being Mr. Nice Guy,” so he decided to take the chance and see if the court would side with him.
The judge did end up issuing a “thoughtful and informed decision” in Pitt’s favor and said the kids weren’t in any danger when they were with their dad.
Jolie’s spokesperson issued a statement to Us Weekly last week after the custody agreement leaked, and said the leak was “misleading” and not in the kids’ best interest. They also said that Jolie is only focused on her kids’ health and needs, and she believes it was important to keep the court proceedings private.
The Oscar-winning actress doesn’t appear to be happy with the newest custody agreement, which essentially gives her and Pitt equal time with the kids this summer. But, Jolie reportedly resents the court telling her when she can and can’t have her children, and an insider says that the 43-year-old believes she should be the one to make those decisions.
The source also claims that Jolie still has a lot of anger and resentment towards her ex, especially since he seems to be happy without her. And, it is infuriating for Jolie to have Pitt “control” her via the kids. For Jolie, her “kids are her everything,” and the fact that a judge who doesn’t know them can make decisions about their future is frustrating.

Jolie and Pitt have different parenting styles, which is something that caused them to butt heads when they were together. Now that they are separated, Jolie hates the idea of Pitt undermining her parenting when her kids are away with their dad.
“As crazy as it sounds, it’s almost as if Angelina believed that by divorcing Brad as her husband she could also divorce her kids from him as their father,” says the source.
But, there was never a chance of that happening because Brad Pitt loves his kids just as much as his ex.
