ET: Brad Pitt isn’t ‘looking to leap into a serious relationship at the moment’

Brad Pitt arrives for the "Okja" premiere in New York City

We can’t go four full days without “someone” in Brad Pitt’s team assuring us that Brad is totally fine now, in fact he’s better than fine, he’s happy and healthy and completely over Angelina Jolie and he’s dating and he’s happy being single and he thinks Neri Oxman is the most beautiful woman that he’s ever seen. It doesn’t really matter if every part of the story checks out, nor does it matter if no one really asked “but how is Brad doing?” The idea, from the perspective of Brad’s team, is just to smother the conversation with enough vague information about how great his life is now. So, with that in mind, here are some highlights from Entertainment Tonight’s latest exclusive about Brad.

Brad is focusing on family & work: A source tells ET that the 54-year-old actor is “in a great place personally and professionally” as he heads back to the set of his upcoming movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, after recently spending time with his six kids in London.

He’s so professional: “He’s happy to be back in Los Angeles filming,” the source says. “He’s good-natured and professional on set. He is warm and authentic with everyone around. When he isn’t filming, he spends most of his time away in his trailer.”

The kids haven’t visited him on set: The source notes that Pitt’s children with Angelina Jolie — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and the twins Knox and Vivienne — have not visited their father during the film’s production.

He’s single: As far as dating goes, despite continued reports that Pitt is dating Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Neri Oxman, the source assures ET that he is single. “He has gone on dates but he’s not looking to leap into a serious relationship at the moment,” the source reveals. “He is content on his own and enjoys the quality time he spends with the children when he isn’t working.”

He’s focused on the Jolie-Pitt kids:
The source adds that Pitt “is focused on two of the most important things he should be focused on, and those are his children and his work. Being a father is his number one job and he knows that. He will always be there for those children.”

He’s a homebody: Additionally, the source also mentions that when Pitt is not with the kids or on the set, “He’s spending more time out and about socializing with his close friends, but he also is still a homebody and appreciates hanging around his place.”

The kids haven’t visited him on the set, nor have they visited him in LA in a while, because Angelina still has primary custody and the kids are still in London with her. That changes in about a month, when Angelina has to make arrangements for the kids to fly to LA on July 21st, where they’ll spend about a week with Brad, but the visit is still being monitored and regulated. As I was looking through the schedule that the judge ordered, it looks like Brad is due to be back in London today for a five-day monitored visit with the kids. Not all the kids at once – the judge has ordered that Brad only gets to see one or two kids at a time, and that he must host them at the house/apartment he’s renting, with a child therapist present the entire time.

As for Brad being single… well, Neri Oxman’s billionaire boyfriend Bill Ackman dissed Brad pretty badly a few weeks ago. A “source” told Page Six that “Bill won his match, and has won the girl. Brad Pitt will need to up his tennis game — and his educational degrees — if he wants such a super impressive, and highly intellectual woman.” And thus ends the saga of The Unicornification of Neri Oxman.

    Oh dear God – I cannot believe how my childhood crush has fallen so low in my eyes.

    Brad – grow a effing pair and be a real human being and stop attacking your ex wife and indirectly your children.

    Your alcohol abuse combined with your verbal (and physical altercation) broke your relationship with your wife and children. If you really were there for your children, you would never ever have thrown them to the wolves (media & public). You would never let Angelina and Maddox take the fall for your horrible behaviour.

    It seems that Karma is showing the truth – Brad has supervised visits and 1 movie while Angelina has custody and 4 confirmed movies in the pipeline. She was again voted the most admired woman in the world.

    The same karma will also show the public what Brad exactly did on that plane ride because truth never stays hidden for long.

    • Fa says:

      He learned from the deplorable how to play the victim.

    • Ankhel says:

      For those interested in the subject, Brad Pitt has three acting roles lined up after this year, in addition to several jobs producing. He’s also very active this year. Just saying!

      • Maya says:

        I know he has producing roles but which other 3 roles are you talking about?

      • Cleo2 says:

        Yea no one ever thought Brad was taking a break, or cutting back, not even in the midst of his presumed therapy and modified wishy washy 12 steps or whatever he did.

        He was on the promo trail for that dud of a Cotilliard film before child services and LE were done. He quickly followed with some big mag interviews (‘I own my side of the street,’ he said…where Maddox was laying traumatized huddled with the other kids) Proclaiming that bs, in that bs way, was a way for him to falsely portray this as an ordinary split and we all know it wasn’t. Then of course we got the ‘sad dad,’ photo shoot.

        His self esteem is based on his status in H’wood. Unfortunately he’s under the impression that the only way he gets fixed is to make the last 2 yrs go away, or Angelina’s fault. He’d like to turn this into CAA and Huvane strategy circa 2008. Basically demonize Angelina, let her as usual take the hits from all sides, meanwhile he skates around unaccountable soaking up the pity at the pity party, with that same 53% of women who voted Trump and assorted others blaming his accomplished admired ex for dragging him down with ‘her voodoo’ of course.

        No really, In Touch and Star say it- it must be true.

      • KORTY says:

        This picture with Brad and Leo is everywhere. I had to laugh.. really laugh. This ONE picture has gotten more attention than all the pictures Angelina put out for her PR trip. LOL

      • ennie says:

        which photo?

      • Hmmm says:


        The photo where Brad looks like the has been that he is and Leonardo looks slightly embarrassed. Ohnotheydidnt is calling him a hasbeen lol.

      • JENNIFER says:

        Lainey called the photo “No D!ck Energy” lololol. And honestly he kind of SWF AJ’s “make an appearance on a colleague’s social media”, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that they thought it up all on their own. Oh, and AJ’s was much better.

      • Fa says:


        He always stalking Angie, she did appeared #1 her colleague Elle Instagram account, may I say was everywhere too. One more thing LD is more popular than him, and I have more followers than crying Pitt.

  4. Pthree3 says:

    Brad arrived in London on Sunday or Monday. Lots of tweets. and he was seen on the set of The King. He is a Producer.

  5. Jess says:

    Lol with that he’s not looking to get into a serious relationship storyline. It’s so obvious Neri Oxman wasn’t interested and he’s trying to save face, 2 weeks ago the narrative was that she was the most amazing person in the history of the universe.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly – that little fictional fairy tale fell apart, so now it’s damage control.

      All of these stories read like: “Everything’s fine! He’s not abusive! He’s not a jerk! Puppies! Rainbows! Everyone loves him!”

      It’s really over the top and embarrassing. The best thing he could do would be focus on work (and pick better projects, ew) focus on his sobriety, and work hard to repair his relationship with his kids and respect their needs. All this public stuff is just unnecessary and only makes him look desperate.

      • Cleo2 says:

        I feel an Oprah interview on Own coming, with glasses of champagne and a few sniffles from Brad , mirroring his 1st ex’s supportive big ol comfy hug and cradling in Oprah’s bosom on national tv. It was all very CAA Huvane-ish designed to be a career booster for Jen- an edict for the public to ‘Please love HER, and hate them (esp Angelina!)’

        I feel Brad, who’s working with the same agency CAA again, is taking all the pages from that book.

        Real nice to do to the accomplished loving mother of your children.

    • Danielle says:

      My thoughts exactly when I read the title of the post “so Neri finally shut that down.”

      • KORTY says:

        That’s about time, Brad’s team has denied it again and again, Neri never because she has benefited and only became known through this false story. Who knew Neri before this?

  6. Sway says:

    Тhe fact that there will be “child therapist present the entire time” when he meets with his children, almost two years after Angie and him separated is so … telling. Tells me there is much, much, much more to the story on the plane and before that. Some really cruel and traumatizing things.

    • Maya says:

      Shhh – don’t you know that Brad as a white man is never wrong and it’s always the woman, especially if the woman is Angelina, who is at fault?

      Just read above and other comments where women will plainly ignore Brad’s alcoholism and plane incident and will claim Angelina is the one doing parent alienation…

      • JENNIFER says:

        The weird one liner comments about parental alienation and good for Brad and Brad looks great, etc….I do sometimes wonder if they are PR trolls?

      • Maya says:

        Brad’s PR is definitely on Dailymail as I saw a comment saying he is raging alcoholic and had like 100 likes, that was removed later….

    • lucy2 says:

      It is highly suspicious. I’m glad the courts are being protective of the kids, while also trying to move everyone forward.

  7. Sage says:

    His usual: he’s doing fine, happy and healthier than ever, reconnecting with old friends blah, blah. Hopefully his divorce will be finalized and custody settled soon. This pr strategy is pathetic.

  8. Pirate Dread says:

    This is code for nobody wants him. Yet a couple magazines in my grocery store said Jennifer desperately wants him back.

  9. Stella in NH says:

    His visits for the past two years are supervised with only a couple at a time. How is he a great father it the court ordered these type of visits?

  10. Starkiller says:

    IDK, somehow I feel like someone who was secure with themselves wouldn’t have “sources” dropping quotes to Page Six about how impressive and highly intellectual they are. If she’s seriously that much of an egomaniac, I’d say Brad dodged a bullet.

    • lissanne says:

      Yep. A poster on Jezebel claimed to know of Neri from MIT. Said that Neri treats her grad students like garbage, and steals their work. (Ah, the joys of academia!) Comes from money. Of course, now she’s landed herself a billionaire. What would she want with Brad, a mere actor.

  11. Coco for puffs says:

    Tired of Pitt really

  12. Rebecca says:

    Initially, I was feeling sorry for Brad. However, if he still is required to have a monitor on these visitations after all this time has passed, he obviously did something very wrong, What really happened on that plane? I’m thinking he still has an ongoing drug or alcohol problem and hasn’t done everything in that area the court ordered him to do.

    • KBB says:

      I don’t think a judge would be ordering the five youngest to visit him in Los Angeles for a week without a monitor if he were struggling with sobriety or hadn’t done something ordered by the court. I think he hasn’t seen them as frequently as he wants people to think the last two years, and they’re in the midst of a speedy reunification schedule right now.

  13. Coco for puffs says:

    Entitled white man syndrome who have a cult of delusional older women following him since the 90’s. and sad to say some men.

  14. Ocjulia says:

    He’s just so stupid.

  15. Rebecca says:

    I’m confused. I thought the court documents stated he had to have a monitor.
