Is Brad Pitt secretly dating a lot of different women and organizing covert hookups at his house in Los Angeles? That’s the phony claim in one of this week’s tabloids. It’s simply not accurate.
“Brad’s Playing The Field!” reads a headline in the latest issue of OK! Pitt hasn’t been in relationship since his 2016 split from Angelina Jolie, but according to the magazine, he’s spent the past few months “having fun with multiple women” in the privacy of his home. “The big caveat is that he prefers that the ladies not be famous – and that they keep quiet about the get-together,” a supposed source tells the magazine.
The anonymous insider adds, “Brad’s having a really good time. Yes, he’s keeping it mostly no-strings-attached, but he’s being a total gentleman with every woman he gets to know, and the hookups benefit both parties equally.” The tipster goes on to say that Pitt mostly relies on his friends to set him up, asking that they be on the lookout for “someone who’s young, fit, attractive, smart, fun and a bit of a thrill-seeker. And while he usually prefers blondes, he’s been going for a lot of brunettes lately.” Considering that Jolie is brunette, this remark doesn’t make a ton of sense.
The seemingly phony source goes on to say that Pitt will sometimes spot an attractive woman in a crowd and ask a pal to arrange a private introduction, adding, “It’s all done very discreetly. The ladies are usually screened before they spend time with Brad, so they go into it with the understanding that he isn’t looking for anything serious – and that discretion is paramount.”
“He doesn’t want Angelina getting wind of what he’s doing and making it a big deal in court or with their kids.” adds the unknown insider. “Their divorce still isn’t finalized, so he wants to keep his private life private until then. He’s meeting a lot of different people from unique backgrounds. And physical stuff aside, he’s found it very liberating to have nice, long, quiet conversations with interesting women.”
The tabloid’s story is a work of fiction. Gossip Cop ran the report by Pitt’s spokesperson, who tells us on the record that it’s untrue. The movie star hasn’t been using his house as a revolving door for secret hookups. Earlier this year, reliable outlets such as People magazine noted that Pitt is “more focused on being a dad than on dating.” That remains the case. It’s worth noting, it’s certainly possible that the actor has been on some dates since a judge declared him legally single back in April, but the outlet’s account of the situation is absurd.
Here’s what’s also absurd: Back in May, OK! claimed Pitt had proposed to Jennifer Aniston during a romantic dinner at her house. This latest article makes no mention of that phony scenario. Instead, the tabloid alleges Pitt is using his own house as some sort of love shack for random hookups. Around this time last year, the same magazine insisted Pitt and Aniston were getting married and having a baby. It’s safe to say the publication has zero insight into the actor’s love life.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
