Brad Pitt and Demi Moore never dated, despite a rumor last year that they were on the verge of embarking on a romance. It was specifically alleged they were bonding over “sensual” yoga sessions. But as Gossip Cop said 365 days ago, the story was a complete fabrication.
On August 25, 2017, we debunked the National Enquirer for an article contending Moore reached out to Pitt shortly after his split from Angelina Jolie, and introduced him to a form of yoga that supposedly boosts one’s sex life and helps with sobriety. “Demi and Brad are getting close over intimate sober yoga sessions,” a so-called “source” was quoted as saying. The supermarket tabloid and its unidentifiable insider maintained these were “intense,” “sensual” and “electric encounters” that had Pitt “raving about the chemistry between them.”
“They are sharing a passion for yoga and each other. It’s a perfect combo,” insisted the purported tipster, who predicted, “It’s possible that Brad and Demi could go the distance” with a “proper romance.” But this tale was doubly wrong: Not only were Pitt and Moore not about to start dating, but they weren’t doing yoga together, either. A spokesperson for the actor even told Gossip Cop the narrative was “ridiculous.”
In the months after our bust, Pitt and Moore never emerged as a couple. However, the notion that a bond was forming between them was brought back in March by the magazine’s sister outlet, RadarOnline. The site claimed Moore had “dragged” Pitt into Kabbalah after “crushing” on him “for years.” Another anonymous snitch insisted, “She would love to date him, and now that he’s free, that may finally happen.”
But in addition to Gossip Cop again confirming nothing was going on between the pair, so did E! Online, which in a story about Pitt and the rumor mill reported, “He is not trying Kabbalah and the story is made up.” It was even noted, “Brad isn’t friends with Demi and they don’t speak.” This backed up what Gossip Cop had said months prior: Pitt and Moore weren’t doing yoga or anything at all together, much less moving closer towards a romance.
And in June, “Entertainment Tonight” reported that Pitt is choosing to focus on fatherhood over dating as he and Jolie continue to work out custody issues. Meanwhile, Moore hasn’t been in any public relationships since finalizing her divorce with Ashton Kutcher in 2013. Their futures may eventually include new love interests, but 12 months after they were first linked, it’s clear Pitt and Moore won’t be dating each other.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
