Angelina Jolie released a statement Wednesday morning, after her custody arrangement with Brad Pitt started making headlines.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported that the court has required Jolie -- who has primary physical custody -- to give her children more time with Pitt. According to court documents, "the court has determined that not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them" and that forming a relationship with him is "critical." The docs also stated that the six kids are "safe with their father."
The order also laid out temporary custody terms, breaking down how the kids will split time between Pitt's home in Los Angeles and London, where Jolie is currently renting a home. Pitt was also given unrestricted phone calls with the children.
"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 docs add (via CNN).
A spokesperson for Jolie responded to media coverage on the ruling, stating on Wednesday: "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," the statement continued, "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.”
A rep for Pitt had no comment.
The couple, who tied the knot in 2014 after years of dating, separated in 2016.
