Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski’s trip to Chateau Miraval was for his wine business, but one seemed to question it.
Brad Pitt has remained single since his split from Angelina Jolie until he was spotted with Nicole Poturalski in Paris last week. His move to take her to Chateau Miraval raised a few eyebrows because it happened at about the same week he married Angelina Jolie there six years ago.
Lainey accused Pitt of diverting the people’s attention from his girlfriend to his champagne business.
Brad Pitt allegedly trying to divert the people’s attention
Brad Pitt talked with People about the newest champagne from Miraval. He was reportedly there to finalize the details of Fleur de Miraval, which will be available in the U.S. market on Oct. 15.
“Are we being assured that he wasn’t just taking his young model lover to what used to be the family home in France? That, you know, he was actually WORKING!?! That it wasn’t a total insensitive d— move, bringing Nicole there, because he had business to do, OK? It was business!” Lainey wrote.
Lainey also questioned Pitt’s conversation with People because for her, “that read like press releases” for Chateau Miraval’s new rose Champagne and People is not a champagne media outlet.
“Is this really about branding for the champagne or, rather, is this in service of Brad Pitt’s brand – as a distraction from the latest about his private life and the picture that’s emerging that he may not be the dude that the pop culture public has been so invested in for all these years?” she added.
Pitt called insensitive for taking Nicole to Chateau Miraval
Before the report from People, Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski were spotted at the airport. There were speculations that he would take her to Chateau Miraval. Several outlets confirmed that the couple spent the weekend there.
Some called Pitt insensitive because Chateau Miraval is a property he and Angelina Jolie shared. In addition, it was where they tied the knot six years ago. The timing wasn’t perfect at all because it happened at about the same week of their wedding date.
Jennifer Aniston subtly implied about Pitt being insensitive too in a previous interview. The Friends alum was asked about Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s 60-page spread for W Magazine. It also raised some eyebrows because it happened so shortly after Pitt and Aniston’s separation.
Aniston said Pitt didn’t want to rub something off her face. She understands that for Pitt, it was art. Aniston rolled her eyes and said, “There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing.”
