Brad Pitt Feels ‘Ignored' By The Therapist Dictating His Visitation With Kids

It looks like the custody arrangement hasn't left things so amicable between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The “By The Sea” acting pair are in the middle of a squall, it would seem.

We reported earlier how leaked details surrounding their custody agreement showed how punitive the demands were for Brad.

He has to submit to random drug and alcohol tests four times a month, and the settlement gives a therapist the right to choose how often the “Allied” actor gets to see his children in supervised visits.

Well, apparently, Brad thinks he's getting short shrift in this agreement.

Brad's lawyer Lance Spiegel filed a series of emails on Wednesday and in one of them, he stated that “the therapy team has ignored or disregarded issues that [Brad] has raised” despite the face that Brad's been compliant with the child therapy process.

According to TMZ, Brad is only getting time to see his six children once a week.

Later on in the emails, Spiegel said that no matter what the therapists' views are, “there is no reason for Brad not to request court orders” to see his kids more.

On top of asking for four sessions with the kids in various scheduling arrangements for the month of December, Spiegel has requested that if Maddox and Pax declined attending one of the sessions, the “Fight Club” actor should get another session with the other four children.

However, Angelina's lawyer Laura Wasser claims that the therapists know what is in the best interest of the children and that Brad and Angelina need to rely on them to “tell us how the kids are feeling.”

Needless to say, this is all very, very complicated.

Brad was recently denied in his attempt to have the case kept sealed. We'll see how this family makes it work going forward during these complicated times.
