Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been separated for just over two months, but is the 52-year-old actor already preparing to move on?
According to a new report, Brad Pitt may not be ready to date quite yet, but when it comes to his future love interest, he allegedly knows one thing for sure: his potential mate will not be a thing like his estranged wife.
“[Brad Pitt] is still getting his legs underneath him after Angelina hit him with a wrecking ball, but eventually he will date again,” an insider told Hollywood Life on November 28. “One thing is for sure, the next woman he dates will be nothing like Angelina.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie began their relationship on the set of 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith when Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston, and weeks after Aniston filed for divorce, the couple was reportedly seen together in Kenya with Maddox, now 15.
Prior to the start of her relationship with Brad Pitt, Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia, and years later, once they were dating, Pitt adopted the child as his own. In the years that followed, the couple adopted two more children, 12-year-old Pax, from Vietnam, and 11-year-old Zahara, from Ethiopia. The couple also shares three biological children, daughter Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were together for a total of 12 years, they were only married for two. After a decade of dating, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said their “I dos” at their home in France with their kids beside them. In August, just weeks before Jolie filed for divorce, Brad Pitt and the actress allegedly spent time together at the Beverly Hills Hotel where Us Weekly claimed they reportedly enjoyed a low-key date night.
“It was just the two of them. They had dinner and spent the night, and that was it… They left the next day.”
Although Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appeared to be doing okay at that point; they had been facing allegations of a rumored on-set affair between Pitt and his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard, for months, and after Jolie filed for divorce, Pitt was accused of allegedly getting physical with their son.
While the investigation into Brad Pitt’s alleged abuse has since been closed, the Hollywood Life source went on to reveal that Pitt is reportedly done with Jolie and the negativity she’s brought to his life and now allegedly wants to surround himself with positivity.
“[Brad Pitt] was seduced by [Angelina Jolie’s] darkness and intensity but after years of all the drama he wants to be around positive people,” the report explained. “Brad is looking for someone to bring light into his life after all the drama. He just wants it to be easy and loving. At this point in his life, he realizes all the other stuff is a waste of time.”
Brad Pitt has been keeping a low profile since splitting from Jolie in September. Although the actor has attended a handful of events to promote Allied, he hasn’t been seen much otherwise, nor has Jolie.
“[Brad Pitt] has no desire to date or get involved in any new relationships,” a source told Hollywood Life earlier this month. “He is still stunned and heartbroken over his failed marriage, and feels like it’ll be a long time before he’s ready to love again.”
According to the report, Brad Pitt is focused on his career, his children — and nothing else.
“[Brad Pitt] main focus right now is finishing up his work obligations and figuring out how and when he can see his children.”
