Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski have not been photographed again since they first stepped out in public last month.
As such, New Idea is speculating on the possibility that the rumored couple is faking their romance to spite Angelina Jolie. A source also told the tabloid that the parents of Brad Pitt aren’t supportive of his relationship with Poturalski.
“Being linked to Brad has already been a huge boost to her career, plus of course it would have given Brad a real kick to mess with Ange by stepping out with a much younger look-alike after everything she’s been putting him through,” the source said.
Jane Pitt and Bill Pitt don’t like Nicole Poturalski for Brad Pitt
The insider also said that Pitt’s parents, Jane and Bill aren’t thrilled that their son is dating a woman who’s half his age. And Pitt’s parents also love his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, and would want nothing but for the A-listers to get back together.
“They’re worried he’s making a fool of himself. Jane spends a lot of time on the phone with Jen anxiously discussing it. Jane is still close with Jen and is relying on her to keep Brad from falling in with a weird post-divorce crowd,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. While it is true that Brad Pitt and Poturalski haven’t confirmed the real status of their relationship, it is untrue that the model is using Pitt for fame.
And it doesn’t also make sense for Pitt and Poturalski to fake their romance to mess with Jolie. After all, the Maleficent star has moved on from her ex-husband a long time ago.
Angelina Jolie talks about Brad Pitt divorce
In fact, Jolie was the one that filed for divorce from Pitt. And during a recent interview with Vogue India, the mom of six said that separating from Pitt was the right thing to do.
“I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing. Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds. In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people,” she said.
As for Pitt’s mom contacting Aniston, this is highly unlikely as well. Brad Pitt and Aniston divorced in 2005 and they’re just friends now.
