Brad Pitt’s Girlfriend Rollout began last week, when his team likely confirmed the identity of Nicole Poturalski to multiple media outlets after the paparazzi “caught” Brad and Nicole arriving in France together. Many of us believed that the timing of this rollout was strategic, having to do with Brad and Angelina Jolie’s latest drama in their years-long divorce proceedings. Perhaps! While we were all paying attention to Brad and Nicole, Entertainment Tonight got their hands on Judge Ouderkirk’s response to Jolie’s lawyers request that he recuse himself:
Court documents obtained by ET on Wednesday show Judge John W. Ouderkirk’s response to Angelina Jolie’s efforts to have him removed from her and Brad Pitt’s divorce case. Ouderkirk declares he has no personal bias or prejudice concerning any party‚ attorney or any other person participating in this case. Further, he denies under penalty of perjury that he has failed to disclose multiple professional, business, and financial relationships, created and ongoing during the course of this matter, with Respondent’s counsel and their law firms in which Judge Ouderkirk was privately compensated.
“I will continue to consider accepting other cases as other additional cases may arise from time to time while the Jolie/Pitt case is still pending. Such other cases might involve party, lawyer‚ law firm and/or witnesses involved in the Jolie/Pitt matter,” Ouderkirk states in the docs. The judge further declares he can and will remain impartial in Pitt and Jolie’s case, and requests that the Court give due consideration to accompanying documents and evidence supporting that claim.
“…He denies under penalty of perjury that he has failed to disclose multiple professional, business, and financial relationships, created and ongoing during the course of this matter, with Respondent’s counsel…” But… he did just that? He failed to disclose to Jolie’s counsel the additional cases he had taken on at Pitt’s lawyers’ requests? That’s what got all of this rolling. This judge, my God.
As for the OTHER curious timing… Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married at the Chateau Miraval on August 23, 2014. Almost six years later exactly, Brad is now at Miraval with Nicole. He apparently wanted to go there because he’s “taking part in a campaign for his wine at the 1,200-acre estate in Correns, France.” Is it cold to take your 30-years-younger girlfriend to the place where you married your ex-wife on almost the exact wedding anniversary date? I mean… it is cold. But I can’t help but think that Angelina doesn’t even associate the Miraval wedding with happy memories. She basically just agreed to marry Brad for the kids’ sake.

So messy. I can’t believe he thought this was a good idea.
So messy and I had forgotten how much I disliked her wedding dress. Hard to take away the benefit of hindsight but yeah, she doesn’t look like this is ‘the happiest day of her life’ and all that other wedding sentiment stuff.
How much do you bet she wishes she had never gone through with the Miraval wedding NOW? I mean, I know it’s different, but I bet she actually wishes she could have pulled off a Jennifer Aniston with (ummm….Aniston’s ex-“husband”) and just split.
Kids and custody issues always make things more complicated and they would likely have ended up in court on that but finances are clearly what’s holding this up at this point. And it can be genuinely easier to divide assets without the entire court process (not to sound too Goop-y with conscious uncoupling but she has a point – the traditional legal system’s divorce is scarring for everyone involved. I say this as a lawyer too.)
She looks like she’s already regretting it in that cover photo.
I wonder if the main influence in her marrying him was her preventative surgery? Was she thinking worse case scenario that she wanted her kids to have that memory of their wedding day, and I presume legally it makes things easier if a spouse passes, rather than a partner, things are more straight forward in settling estates. I have just made myself depressed now.
I think custody is still an issue with them? If so, it probably always would have been messy. And given that he seems intent on fighting her and dragging this out (rather than just being sorry he blew up his family and doing whatever it takes to make it easier on them) he probably would have fought just as much over stuff even if they hadn’t legally married.
If I had a ton of money, I’d either neither get married without an iron-clad pre-nup, or I’d go the Aniston/Theroux route of everything but the legal marriage.
You’re right. Wedding or not, there are six children involved – two of whom wants nothing to do with him (after he didn’t hit one in the face). There is also tied assets following their long relationship together. He still earned the most, so the outcome would be the same and pre-nup benefits him, not her.
Do we know for sure that Brad took Nico to Miraval? I read that she was already in Paris when B arrived from LAX, and that she met him at the airport. Then, the pair got on another flight together. I think those facts are confirmed. Who knows for sure what happened next, or where they are now?
Someone on twitter saw them in Berlin so he may actually be w/ the girl and not deny it this time. Messy and sick.
There are new photos of her insta modelling in the actual miraval house. So disrespectful! Angie should get the house steam cleaned after they’ve been screwing in the rooms.
Where? I want to see. And yes totally disrespectful. This girl has no morals and totally after fame and money.
@bluebell go to instagram ‘lovers who wander’ she’s half naked with some guy & location is chateau miraval.
“Is it cold to take your 30-years-younger girlfriend to the place where you married your ex-wife on almost the exact wedding anniversary date?” I mean… depends who you’re asking. Not everyone is so hung up on dates. It can just feel like a random end-of-summer day for them. What’s he supposed to do, never visit his own castle ever again on any day adjacent to his wedding day to his ex?
I think you are missing the point. If you are not yet divorce and your ex takes his gf to your house, is that ok with you? Where’s the decency here? That’s bad karma!!!
Yes, I know they’re not divorced yet, but isn’t that just a technicality? This divorce has been dragging on for years and they’ve hardly even spoken to each other in the meantime, right? I mean, I can’t believe I’m a Brad defender now, but taking his new GF to their house on what is ‘almost’ their wedding day is hardly the worst thing he’s ever done.
They also co-own the place. He did it to be spiteful because a good man with 6 kids would have better sense and decency than to bring his married girlfriend, 30 years younger than him, to their family home! I mean he could have brought her anywhere else in the world, France is full of luxury resorts and hotels but that he chose Miraval to roll her out is just plain petty and shows he doesn’t care whether or not he hurts his kids with his shenanigans. He’s a horrible father and a dirty old man.
I think that is why he did this. To ruin the estate for Angie and the kids. Hence she would give it up in the divorce. Never mind it would hurt his kids more. These kind of behaviors disrespect your wife, your children, and even other family members. You don’t bang your new side piece in the family home that the family has as much claim to as you do. He really doesn’t give a f*#k about his kids at all. Gawd he repulses me so much. Poor kids, they deserve better than this bimbo instagram posing in their home. What a low life Brad turned out to be.
I am off to cleanse my brain by watching kitten videos
I hate to say this, but I knew about when my anniversary was but never remember the actual day. We’d been together 25 years before we got married at a civil service at city hall when the company I worked for would no longer recognize domestic partners for health insurance. Luckily, I remembered some other people had the the same anniversary date and asked them.
Well there’s this new mini series on Netflix “dirty John the Betty Broderick story” And the guy does something similar. I’m not convinced Angie cares that much about brads new dating life though.
I just started watching that one. I liked the first season better (in a scream at the TV, lady what is wrong with you!? kind of way), but both stories are just bonkers.
Season one drew me in much faster. I was not totally into the Betty story till maybe episode 3. I think Bettys true story is such an amazing way to communicate important feminist Issues which are still going on. I liked also that none of the characters are made out to be “the good one.”
I think season 2 will stay with me longer as the way it showed her as a mother was quite touching also, Amanda peet is amazing!
The girlfriend rollout…of his girlfriend who’s still married to the father of her son. And there’s some reporting that they (the girlfriend and her husband) are in an open relationship i.e. it’s not even that they’re in the process of divorcing.
*slow clap* Nice job, Brad
I’m just going to say that I said it here, on this site, that she looked apprehensive in the wedding photos, and I gave the marriage two years.
I don’t think Angelina cares that much about the new girlfriend or the timing of their arrival to the house, however I can see her getting upset if what they say about him covering the tattoos of their older kids is true.
Really, where is that being said? That’s… I can’t even find the words if true. SMH.
There are photos. He also has a tank tattoo on the family tree line tattoo pointing at Angie’s former initial. He has serious issues.
@Michelle Really?!! Wow… Those poor kids spending 10 years next to this psycho.
If that is true (about the tank tattoo and removal of his older sons’ initials), he is a sick and potentially dangerous man. Wow.
Trump’s America where judges will get away with perjury. I don’t have faith that the judge will be ordered to be removed.
And as an Angelina fan, I am laughing so hard seeing Brad’s golden image disappear overnight.
I still hate bucket hats.
Do you think he was wearing Nicole’s bucket hat in the pictures of leaving France? I think he might have..
So he most likely removed Pax and Maddox initials from his family tattoo. He’s disgusting and how anyone can defend him after that is wild. I don’t even know these people but this breaks my heart those kids aren’t at fault you’re the adult who ruined the only family the knew. My god I need 2020 and karma to get his ass already he makes me sick.
Yikes. I hope that’s not true.
I saw a photo on twitter. It does look like he removed MP from the list of the kids initials. JFC, those poor poor kids. Pax is only 16 and Maddox 19. What a truly awful and cruel man Brad Pitt it, I am beyond repulsed!!
I saw that photo too – hard to tell, someone commented that it’s fabric from the glove, but it’s such a blurry photo it’s hard to tell. He definitely added the tank on the A line though, so I wouldn’t be surprised either way. He’s a spoiled man child.
I wish I didn’t know this about him.
That’s the worst kind.
This man is burning away his last shred of likeability! Reading justjared & dm comments you could tell that people are waking up to his antics. I’m not suprised to read about him covering up Maddox and Pax’s tattoos. The guy doesn’t like his kids. Look at how many times we’ve seen & heard of him visiting vs his alleged playdates. The idiot thought he can cover up the shady judge’s story with this clearly planned stunt.
I hope a new judge is appointed soon so Angie can move on. Pit clearly wants to prolong this situation because she’s paying for his failing business especially the latest wine business which is made at their family estate in France.
Brad’s move to go to the house in France is probably just a strategi move to make people (and court?) associate the estate with him. Since he’s the one doing the PR for their wine business now.
He’s playing this like chess. One move a time.
Good point. I’m sure miraval is what they’re still fighting for so when this goes to trial he wants to make it seem like he put in all the work and he deserves everything even tho it was her also her idea and money. Angelina just let him have it and let it be done is this all worth it?
Yeah he’s got some blurb in People about it today.
He should buy out her share if he wants it, or both of them should back away from it and put it in the kids’ names.
This maybe it. He’s cornering her into selling those shares to him and that could be one of reasons why their divorce had been dragging on. She wanted to leave the business to the kids and he wanted it all to himself. He didn’t care enough for their future seeing as half of them are already turned against him. His PR machine is working OT to make sure all the headlines to claim it’s all his ideas and his partnerships with the wine makers to make this year’s Rose champagne. No mention of Jolie name at all. She was only mentioned in combination with his name for the Chateau where he brought his new GF for a visit. So it’s her move now. As you mentioned in one of your chart readings on her, she’s urged to burn some bridges. May she sell the darn place. Her kids probably couldn’t care less at this point.
I have to remind everyone that Angie’s mom monument (or whatever you call it) was put in the floor of that house. If I remember correctly, they married by that area. I don’t thunk she would care about his relationship but she would care about that house because they placed something of her mom there. I’m just assuming.
She looked so unhappy in her wedding photos.
I don’t think she’s a girlfriend, I think she’s a hookup. Angelina wants to move out of the states and Brad wants to deny moving the kids abroad. It’s their current deadlock and this is her fait accompli. We get the kids and Angelina at the most papped restaurant in the US, showing that she is “home with the kids” and she gets him papped going to France for wine business with his down low hookup, so he looks hypocritical. She knows his schedule because of visitation and she knows the Chateau’s business. Given the state of the US, who can blame a mom for moving?
Yes I think she’s just a hookup that he uses sometimes but definitely not gf material the man loves his image too much to claim someone like her. But I don’t think Angelina planned this him getting caught with her I think this was all Brad’s idea to piss Angelina off and it worked because she looked pissed in her last interview. And it’s not like he went for two weeks it was a couple of days in France and it was business. She knows she can’t move until they’re all above 18 she said that last year.
she made those interviews in late july-early august probably, the most recent one was the twitter Q and A and she looks wonderful
just saw the half naked photo of her and brad in bed in miraval, the level of disrespect i have never seen even in hollywood nastiest divorces . trash .
I know that ain’t a real
Photo unless he was stoned out of his mind 😂
That’s not him the guy has black hair and you don’t see brads tattoos.
um they are in the hashtags and you can see the tattoo on his left arm, and why in the hell would it be location tag at miraval?
Anyone can tag a location even if they’re not actually in that place. Guy isn’t built like Brad and girl’s face is covered up so Idk if that’s actually her.
Even curiouser is the FACT that she was with Andrew Dominic At the kanye concert. This is a pure and simple Pr stunt lol and it’s so obvious it’s a joke . He had to run to people magazine one a MONDAY
He shares this chick with his old man friends. What a total turn off for miraval wine.
What you are saying about Andrew Dominic is just an assumption from the photos and video from that evening. She could have been just sitting in box with him and Spike to avoid speculations that she is with Brad (before the Oscars). They were still sitting next to each other though. Brad didn’t sit in the back with his other friends, Dominic didn’t sit in front to chat with Brad…It was just a cover up so she could go out in public with him without all the speculations. And I would say that they succeeded, right?
Yeah, I think it’s a cover up for her 1st outing with him back in November. They were checking each other out and at the same time he’s keeping Shawkat at close range. Yuck! Talk about stringing one woman along while checking out another. And going by her IG, she’s been in Germany all this time so there is no way they’d been dating all this time. This is a PR stunt he pulled at the last minute to distract the shady judge story. And that’s why the husband wasn’t prepared to say much except a “no comment” statement. I can’t wait to see how the series is gonna unfold.
Is it just me, or does the new “girlfriend” look like she has a chic little moustache?
I think Pitt needs some form of therapy seriously. I think he coming undone and is letting anger and spitefulness get the best of him. Angelina is sticking it to his azz and he is acting up!
I agree this man is not ok and hasn’t been since the divorce. I used to be a huge fan idk now he’s become an old bitter man using woman for his benefit and to stick it to his ex. He’s still very much obsessed with angelina. Did anyone see the war tank tattoo right under neath her initial tattoo that he turned into a star? Like what are you implying?
I thought I remembered Angelina saying that Brad had been pressuring her to get married but she only ended up actually agreeing when the kids started saying they wanted it. Either way, she should’ve followed her instincts on this one bc he’s a Retaliatory disaster. She deserves better. Also, I remember thinking at the time that she didn’t look happy in these photos. It’s so sad.
I think she should be careful too! I pray that this doesn’t get violent! But Pitt needs to get help. The biased lying media and HW rags are fueling his anger in my opinion. I also feel they destroyed his marriage and relationship with his kids along with his help. They character assassinated Angie since 2004. They made fun of her, slandered her, lied on her, disrespected her and those kids for 12 years. Cheered when she filed for divorce, now rake he across the coals for fighting for them.
I admire her strength and resilience. No other woman could have withstood all of that!
All of the faux concern about the kids and how they were glad to see him happy. No they weren’t! The while while he was happy with Angie and his new family thee was non stop criticism and never a nod to his happiness.
If this man’s anger is not checked and keeps escalating, Jolie’d better have some serious bodyguard with her at all times.
His artist friend just recently killed his wife and then killed himself. He’s surrounded by shady people weird people. I wouldn’t trust him.
Maddox looks so over it in the wedding photos. I never noticed how unhappy he looked before, but it makes sense now.
