Angelina Jolie ORDERED to Give Brad Pitt More Visitation With Kids!

Brad Pitt sure is getting a lot of child visitation time for a guy who allegedly barely even pays child support.

But will it last? A report says that a court date for him and Angelina Jolie is looming — and it’s just days away.

These questions of custody, child support, and visitation could be resolved sooner than either estranged ex could imagine.

Until the next court date, which is scheduled for August 21, Angelina is being forced to send her six children to spend time with Pitt.

The court has ordered her, The Blast reports, to hand them over for “four hours every other day on school days and twelve hours every other day on non-school days.”

The order that they spend twelve hours with him every other day on non-school days is staggering.

Additionally, as we previously reported, she was ordered to surrender her children’s cell phone numbers to Pitt.

She was also instructed that she is not to monitor their communications with him.

As we mentioned, Angelina has accused Pitt of being a deadbeat dad.

In court documents, she alleges that he has made minimal contributions towards their children during the two years since their split.

This, she says, has forced her to shoulder the bulk of the costs of caring for all six of them.

It is not that she cannot afford to care for her children, but that it is the responsibility of both parents to support their children.

Pitt did not care for being called a deabeat — if not in so many words — at all.

Brad Pitt accused Angelina of “media manipulation,” though her complaint was filed in court documents.

He then went on to claim that, actually, he’s paid more than $ 9 million in child support.

That sounds like plenty to contribute to six children. More than plenty, really.

But Angelina’s team replied that he was deliberately distorting facts to make it appear that he was providing for his children more than he really was.

He had apparently given Angelina an $ 8 million loan after he insisted upon keeping the family home and the belongings within it.

Obviously, a loan is not the same thing as child support.

The loan was given to help Angelina secure a new home, and he is reportedly charging her interest on the amount.

It is possible that Pitt’s attorney will argue that since the loan is for a home that the children also occupy, he was helping them with it. That would make his case pretty weak, however.

It is difficult to imagine how that argument would work in court unless Pitt forgives the loan, and even then.

Hopefully, an official amount for future child support payments can be determined soon — perhaps in a matter of days, if the August 21 hearing goes well.

Many suspect that the court will make a new ruling on child custody and visitation — though that could, at least potentially, go in favor of either Angelina or Pitt.

Perhaps the court can also clear up who has paid what to whom during the past few years.

Hopefully, the court can do so in a way that does not allow one side or the other to misrepresent the truth using numbers and payments.

What everyone should want is whatever arrangement — in terms of finances and custody and, well, everything else — is in the best interests of the children.

Jennifer Aniston: Gleeful Over Angelina Jolie’s Life Falling Apart!

Brad Pitt is still going through his divorce, and apparently Jennifer Aniston feels so bad for him.

That happiness reportedly stems almost entirely from schadenfreude over Angelina Jolie’s misfortune.

In fact, it sounds like Jen is gleefully dancing on the ashes of Angelina’s entire life.

The once epic love story of Brangelina has devolved into a nasty, acrimonious divorce that neither side can keep quiet.

RadarOnline has gained some insight into how Jennifer Aniston is allegedly feeling about all of this.

“Jen’s in a very positive place right now,” an insider reveals.

Apparently, Aniston’s cheerful disposition doesn’t come from spiritual enlightenment or doing yoga or loving herself.

It seems that her joyful mood comes from watching Angelina’s life in shambles.

“She’s privately ecstatic to see Angelina at rock bottom,” the source says.

As we have mentioned, Angelina filed court documents to try to prompt Brad Pitt to pay his fair share of child support.

Brad fired back that he’s given her tons of money and accused her of filing court documents as part of a “media manipulation” campaign.

Angelina replied with a statement that a loan is not child support, my good dude, but apparently Jennifer Aniston enjoyed the drama from afar.

“She never doubted Angie would self-destruct eventually,” the insider says.

Aniston was apparently confident of this “even when she was at her most smug and supposedly loved-up with Brad.”

It might sound wildly out of character for Jennifer Aniston to be cackling like a Disney villain at the very real misfortunes of a real woman with real feelings.

But the insider explains: “This is a woman Jen views as pure evil.”

That’s an odd perspective, since it’s hard to see how Angelina realistically wronged Aniston, but feelings don’t have to be rational.

“So,” the source asks. “Is she happy to see her miserable and getting the payback she deserves?”

The insider makes it clear that this is not a rhetorical question, answering: “You bet she is.”

Apparently, Aniston believes that this is justice on a cosmic, spiritual scale.

“Jen’s a huge believer in karma,” the source shares. “And she despises Angie.”

It’s often a mistake to believe that the spiritual order of the cosmos just happens to align with your personal grudges.

The insider adds: “She’s finding it hard not to smile when the (divorce) comes up.”

Well, we are all entitled to a little schadenfreude. And it’s hard to see how the former Friends star feeling this way hurts anyone.

That is an interesting read.

However, we do have to ask … is this really how Jennifer Aniston feels?

We would like to think that Jen doesn’t spend all day moping around her home, wondering about what life with Brad would be like if they’d never split.

Similarly, we would like to think that this source, though decidedly Team Jen, is wrong about her alleged vindictive feelings.

If anything, Jen and Angelina have a lot in common — they’re both successful actresses who have years of happy memories with Brad even though those memories are tainted by their bitter breakups.

Honestly, it sounds like they’re both amazing, talented women who gave years of their lives to a man who threw away what they had.

Angelina Jolie Slams Brad Pitt: A Loan is NOT Child Support!!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been trying to keep this ugly divorce as private as possible, but now their contentious battle has spilled out into the open.

Angelina can prove that Brad is an unfit father, because he hasn’t paid child support. Brad replied by slamming that as “media manipulation.”

Now, Angelina is firing back … and spilling a whole lot of details about his failings as a father.

Angelina’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, tells People that Angelina’s grievances against Brad Pitt are legit.

She says that Angelina’s court filing “was both legally appropriate and factually accurate in all respects.”

“What has been filed by Brad’s side today is a blatant attempt to obfuscate the truth,” DeJean states.

“And,” DeJean continues, Brad wishes to “distract from the fact that he has not fully met his legal obligations to support the children.”

In other words, she’s saying that Brad doesn’t want the world to know that he’s a deadbeat dad.

So … what’s this business about a loan? As you may recall, Brad countered that he had loaned her $ 8 million to purchase a home.

“Following the incident of September 2016,” DeJean explains. “Angelina and the children needed to move from the family home, which Brad chose to keep, including all of its contents.”

The incident being the one that took place on a plane and led to Brad Pitt being investigated for child-abuse.

If Brad wasn’t going to leave, then Angelina had not real choice but to move out.

This was when, DeJean says, Brad was “asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina.”

Brad offered assistance … after a fashion.

“Instead,” DeJean says. “He loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan.”

Yikes. While interest on $ 8 million is definitely something that Angelina can afford, she might as well have gone to a bank for the loan instead of to the man who claimed the family home for himself.

DeJean affirms that Angelina fully intends to “honor that loa.n”

However, DeJean makes clear: “A loan is not, however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.”

So it’s not like Angelina is trying to weasel out of paying interest on the loan.

Instead, DeJean says, she “is asking Brad to pay 50% of the children’s expenses.” You know, his job as a parent.

Unfortunately, DeJean says, Brad “has not” been contributing his fair share.

“Angelina has had to shoulder the majority of those without his contribution for the past two years,” DeJean says.

DeJean reminds everyone: “Child support is not optional in California.”

“Typically,” DeJean says. “A father of means would pay these expenses voluntarily”

A good father would, anyway. But we suppose that a good father wouldn’t do whatever Brad did on that plane to end his marriage and get himself investigated by the FBI, either.

DeJean says that a normal father with the cash would already be paying “without the need for a request or court order.”

This might be a good time to mention that, according to the internet, Brad Pitt’s net worth is nearly a quarter of a billion dollars.

DeJean concludes: “We are hopeful that this can be resolved without further delay or posturing.”

Divorces can be messy — especially ones that are triggered by an incident of alleged child-abuse rather than by a marriage slowly succumbing to entropy.

Angelina and Brad have tried to keep the details of their divorce quiet for a host of reasons.

We suppose that it’s no surprise that what’s making them lash out at each other publicly is money.

Just because Angelina is a wealthy woman who can afford to single-handedly provide for all of her children does not mean that she should have to.

We hope that both parties are doing their part for their children, as required by the law and also by basic decency.
