Brad Pitt is single again, after reports he and model girlfriend Nicole Poturalski have officially split.

The Oscar-winner was first spotted with the 27-year-old German model back in August, but now the couple are “totally over”, according to Page Six.

The break up reportedly happened “a while back” with a source telling the publication the relationship was “never all that serious as it was cracked up to be”.

Brad, 56, and Nicole were said to have met at Roland’s Berlin restaurant, Borchardt, in August 2019 while on a promotional tour for his most recent film, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

The Polish-born beauty was still married to her husband, German restauranteur Roland Mary, 68, with whom she shares a son, according to Daily Mail.

Though his ‘philosophical’ approach to marriage meant that he and Nicole have an ‘open marriage’ where her ‘close friendship’ with A-lister Brad wasn’t an issue.

Brad and Nicole were first spotted by eagle-eyed paparazzi on August 27, first at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport and later at Provence’s Le Castellet Airport in photos published by The Sun.

They were thought to be en route to Brad’s South of France holiday home where he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie tied the knot back in 2014.


Many thought Nicole was an 'Angelina lookalike' with people commenting online about the similarity.

“Brad Pitt's new girlfriend looks just like Angelina Jolie!” one user wrote alongside a photo of the two women.

After their little getaway, Angelina Jolie was said to be absolutely ‘furious’ that Brad brought Nicole to the home where the former couple got married.

The Mirror reported at the time there was one person who couldn’t believe her eyes, with a source saying Angelina is “furious and utterly stunned Brad could stoop this low.”

“It grosses her out that he’s cavorting around Europe so publicly with this girl, instead of keeping a private and dignified lid on his love life,” the source told the publication.

“The fact he’s apparently taken them to her marital home is just beyond tacky and inappropriate, however Brad wants to cut it.”

At 27-years-old, Nicole Poturalski is 29 years Brad’s junior, and the first women reported to be in Brad’s life since he split from ex-wife and partner of over a decade Angelia Jolie back in 2016.
