It was mere weeks ago that the world learned that Brad Pitt was dating. Or maybe had been dating for a while, actually. His new flame’s name is Nicole Poturalski and she is a model in a reportedly open marriage with a German restauranteur who is the father of her young child. There was little known about the relationship—just some little clues strung together, like a Kanye West concert last November that they attended together. Then there were the telltale photos of the two of them on the way to Château Miraval, the rosé vineyard he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie, who he is still in the process of divorcing though they are both legally single, purchased together and were married in many years ago.
But now the tabloids did the good work they do, and there are anonymous sources free to give little insights into their relationships. Like this one, as told to Us Weekly: “Brad thinks Nicole is beautiful and kind.” Love that for him. Beautiful and kind! It’s no beauty and brains, but it’s something.
Also, the big news is that this whole group—Pitt, Poturalski, her husband—are all very cool. A friend of her husband’s told the Daily Mail around the time the news broke that the guy wasn’t interested in “jealousy” and that they have an open relationship. And now, some other person is telling Us Weekly that Pitt and Poturalski are just, you know, hanging around, dating. It’s casual. Nothing big, nothing serious.
“It’s currently a go-with-the-flow situation, and Nicole’s not running around yelling about her love for Brad from the rooftops,” the source said. “Nicole is [in Los Angeles] a lot for work. That’s where the bulk of her dates with Brad have been.”
“Go-with-the-flow.” “Beautiful and kind.” Sounds chill for Brad.
