Brad Pitt went to a U2 concert in LA, but where has Neri Oxman been in the past month?

Brad Pitt rocks out at the U2 Concert at the Forum

Here are some photos of Brad Pitt at the U2 concert at the Forum last night. It didn’t seem like he was really “with” anyone, but maybe he went with friends and they just weren’t attached at the hip. Throughout the month of April, we couldn’t go a f–king day without hearing about Brad’s new life, how he’s moving on, and how Neri Oxman is his manic pixie architect dream girl. Seriously, Us Weekly, People and Page Six just could not shut up about Brad and Neri and it got to the point where it was sort of embarrassing? Which is probably why those stories died a quick death almost one month ago. Suddenly, there were no more leaks. We haven’t heard anything about Brad and Neri since April 20th-ish. So was Neri at the concert too? I kind of doubt it, just because I think the paparazzi would have tried to get photos of her too, and I don’t see her anywhere.

Meanwhile, of course Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still not really divorced yet. Life & Style claims this week that they’re still fighting over custody and property:

Life & Style has exclusively learned from an inside source that while both Brad and Angelina are “eager to get on with their new and separate lives,” they have yet to do so. “Brad keeps telling friends that they’re inches away from signing off on an agreement,” another source says, “but then a new wrinkle develops.” Question is, what are those core issues? Unsurprisingly, one of them is custody over their six children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9. “Brad’s goal is joint physical and legal custody,” the source says. “but Angelina has been immovable on that point.”

The other ongoing battle is over one piece of property — the Château Miraval estate and vineyard in France, which Brad and Angelina purchased together before their 2014 marriage on the estate’s grounds. In recent years, it’s netted them a fortune thanks to the success of Miraval rosé wine and olive oil.

“Angelina has been pushing Brad to sell the estate and give her half the money, but he wants to keep it,” the insider says. “Brad has really loved renovating the buildings on the grounds and working with the vintner and olive oil maker. He’s there for every harvest, and he wants to keep the legacy going.” It is, the insider adds, “the one possession he’s intent on hanging on to. It’s his baby.”

L&S also claims that Angelina has been quietly dating a “millionaire British philanthropist” for the past year and that why she’s keen to move on as well. Except none of this is true, probably. Gossip Cop ripped into L&S’s story, especially the Miraval part – apparently, Brad and Angelina probably are going to hold on to their French chateau for the time being. The one thing I’ll buy is that they’re still fighting about custody.

    Wow, I totally forgot about Brad and Neri. Wonder what happened or never did happened?

  2. Denicah says:

    Is he actually dating Neri or were the tabloids just speculating based on the Twitter picture at MIT?
    Also, are the paps still stalking her? No new pictures on the net.

  3. Lela says:

    Hopefully Neri as come to her senses and realized that an aging washed up actor with a history of substance and child abuse is no prize.
    I also hate how the article tries to paint Angelina like a witch who’s keeping the kids away from poor Brad, for everything we’ve heard she’s been the supportive parent while he’s done nothing but try to roll out a new gf to rehab his image.

  4. Maya says:

    Brad’s team are savvy so they probably read how people became fed up with the constant Neri is a Unicorn stories and decided to cool down the leaks.

    I also think they belatedly realised that they did a horrendous job in putting down the mother of his children. The eldest children would definitely have known about those horrible leaks attacking their mother.

  5. Meg says:

    The whole Neri thing was to test the waters to see how people react to him dating and to help his image: a beautiful, intelligent woman is attracted to Brad. Lame

    • tracking says:

      That makes sense, and she might have agreed to this mutually beneficial scenario (since the rumors tremendously upped her fame level). I don’t think she ever issued a denial, but still no pics.

    • Fa says:

      I think he’s dating her quietly and they’re waiting until his divorce is finalised. If they were trying to test water, I may say it works because the public were interested on her and most of them were saying she was better than Angie. He wanted to shade his soon to be ex and it works.

    • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

      Yeah he is obviously still living in the 90’s. Separated men in Hollywood now are side-eyed if they are not seen with their children or talking about how important their kid’s are. He was pushing the narrative that he is some free bird without a concern in the world but to follow a new beauty woman around. And talking about how happy he is now seemingly childless and single. Yeah even Affleck knows to visit his kids or mention them.

  6. LT says:

    For what it’s worth, I love Miraval wine.

  7. NoShame says:

    Maybe Neri Oxman looked on in horror at her PR rollout and ran for the friggin’ hills.

    Roll Out Phase One™ was beyond exhausting.

  8. Millennial says:

    Anymore, judges are partial to joint custody. The older kids can decide for themselves, but as long as Brad has completed all of the required therapy, there’s really nothing Angie can do if it goes before a judge. She might think he doesn’t deserve it, and I would agree in her shoes, but it’s a losing battle.

    • Maya says:

      I don’t think Angelina would ever alienate the children from Brad.

      If the children have regained the trust and Brad got rid of his addictions, I think they will continue with Angelina having physical custody but Brad has access anytime he wants.

    • tracking says:

      Agreed on all counts, and I’m definitely sympathetic to her likely feeling he doesn’t deserve it (even aside from whatever happened on the plane, clearly she had been the primary parent for some time). But in CA, shared custody is the norm.

    • Anna says:

      This is why I don’t believe the constant “custody dispute” BS. First she’d be shooting herself in the foot. Women or men that go hard-line on “sole custody” cause the judge to do exactly the opposite. Judges see that position as a parent being unwilling to facilitate the process of sharing custody and primary custody is given to the parent willing to facilitate sharing. Also – she moved in to a house 1 mile away from Brad for obvious reasons—to share and facilitate. She’s on DeMille Drive and he’s on Briarcliff Road—it’s one mile! They have both moved on but are neighbors. That’s the real story.

      • Eve V says:

        @Anna
        What?! That’s crazy, I didn’t know that… I mean, I guess that’s really putting the kids first, but not sure if I could move on emotionally with my ex of 12 years living one mile away!! What makes it even more is Im pretty sure that has been the living situation since right after the operation announcement, which

  9. Jessy says:

    Ashton and Brad are so good looking

  10. lucy2 says:

    Either the Neri thing wasn’t ever real (I still can’t believe no one snapped a photo of him there other than the one public event where they met) or it was and she noped on outta there after seeing his PR circus.

    OMG get divorced already. This is why pre-nups are a good idea. If he wants the property, why not buy her out? And him trying to get joint custody is not going to happen right now, why not have visitation right now with the agreement to reassess in 6 or 12 months?

    • tracking says:

      Supposedly they had a prenup but they’re pretty easy to challenge. She could be challenging their prenup-stipulated custody arrangement on the basis of his parental behavior that post-dated the prenup, for example. If he wants shared custody and she wants primary, there’s no easy compromise there. Or there might be disagreement concerning the evaluation of their assets, which is always tricky with things like real estate and what may or may not be considered gifts during the marriage.

    • lucy2 says:

      I meant pre-nup in terms of the property only, sorry I wasn’t clear. Certainly, given what happened, I think it’s right of her to challenge any custody agreement they had early on in their relationship. But the division of property should have been clear.

      • tracking says:

        I think it must be challenging to valuate their assets, joint and separate, with lots of real estate, side businesses, and his production company partnership. Even if they agreed on a certain division of assets, I would imagine the forensic accounting needed to determine the precise amount could take a while. And then the issue of child support is obviously tied to the custody question as well. I can see why it would be messy. There were rumors at one point they’d bifurcate, but that didn’t happen for whatever reason. That I don’t understand.

  11. Other Renee says:

    Neri and Brad are over. Just a hunch.

  12. Arabella says:

    Omg I’ve been wondering about Neri! I loved the gossip around them!

  13. Halle says:

    So glad he¿s back. Great actor

  14. Guk says:

    Looks good. Waiting to meet your new girlfriend.

  15. B says:

    They probably weren’t that serious and it just fizzled out.

  16. Talula says:

    He looks so much better, healthier, and happier

  17. Lexa says:

    This new woman sounds like the perfect match for him, I wish them success in their relationship.

  18. Adorable says:

    I have no doubt in my mind,Had they weren’t divorced he would be out & about with his two teenage sons.Which makes me that much more curious as to why he hasn’t been spotted out with them,also I’m curious as to how they will sort out custody in situations of one parent filming in a different country(Like Angie filming maleficent)& stuff..

  19. Annie says:

    Brad looks great, he seems back to his old self. Its weird that whenever Angie and kids are getting papped in LA, we also see Brad out and about. They have been missing since April 10th and now they resurfaced since last week. Not sure what is happpening with the family, but hopefully things are getting better with Angie and him for the kids’s sake.

    As for the rumored GF, saw somewhere that she has a speaking engagement in Vienna Austria tom May 18. So Brad didnt follow her? Its strange also, that she was no longer papped since April 20th, maybe Neri’s pics dont really sell well without Brad in it.

    Just wondering when is Angie and the kids going to London, will Brad visit them?

    • Jayna says:

      Or maybe this was the day or days U2 was in town on their tour and he wanted to see them. It really could be that simple, not all wrapped around a sighting of Angie. There’s plenty of times Angie is papped and Brad is not seen nor photographed. In face, that’s the norm.

  20. Shana says:

    I think it’s great that he gets out and does normal stuff without worrying too much about it.

  21. Kimber says:

    Brad glad to see you have moved on. Neri is a better choice and she is beautiful smart but also has more in common with you Brad the love of architecture

  22. Lightpurple says:

    She teaches at a university. Late April & May are time for finals. Lots of papers to grade.

    • lucy2 says:

      Doesn’t she teach architecture? No papers to grade there back when I was in arch. school, just project critiques, but who knows.
      I still don’t think it was anything more than two people saying hello at an event, and it got turned into a circus.

  23. Annie says:

    Brad was with Andrew Dominik, his director friend.

  24. Jayna says:

    One of the best live bands of all time. Lucky Brad.

  25. Amelie says:

    The tea leaves of the 3D printed chaise lounges told them to be more on the DL. Looks like they listened.

    Out of curiosity (because they were mentioned a million times) I googled the 3D printed chaise lounges. They are very interesting looking, they’re very artsy, modern looking chaise lounges. I think there was a missed opportunity of posting pictures of Neri posing in some very… interesting positions on the chaise lounges haha (nothing unsafe for work but I just found them amusing).

  26. Annie says:

    Angie just arrived in London with only 2 kids, i hope the others are with Brad in LA. If true, then maybe things are getting better, if she is now comfortable leaving the kids with just Brad there.

  27. K-Peace says:

    Amazing, all of the new posters that come out of the woodwork to post on this forum for the first time with 1-sentence insipid “Brad is so hot” comments. Brad’s PR team is so pathetic. And obvious. And it only makes my opinion of him to go even lower, because it’s so petty & lame.

    • All lies says:

      😂 so true. Typical of PR machine CAA. They have their paid minions go to sites to do the same for his first ex, OMG her hair, her tanned bod …lame ass. As for Pitt, he’s not all the way back yet. No swagger in sight. In fact he’s hunched over and definitely looks like a good meal will do some wonders for him.

    • Monika says:

      I’m very glad that I’m not the only one, who is noticing, that some posters of here…. are from Brad’s PR people!! Yeah, it’s very obvious!! They are trying to convince people that Brad is so hot and that Neri is a better choice or whatever… When in reality, that is not truth!! But keep it up; Brad PR people, you ONLY making him look MORE PATHETIC!!
