It has been a good week for Brad Pitt (57). Not only did he get joint custody of his children in the divorce battle with his ex Angelina Jolie (45), he was also rumoured to be dating again.
The actor exchanged telephone numbers during the Oscars with actress and singer Andra Day (36), who was nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars for her role in ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’.
According to insiders, a new romance is in the offing for Brad Pitt. Actress and singer Andra Day and he were flirtatiously spotted backstage during the Oscars. “They were flirting backstage and exchanging numbers. It could just be professional, but some of Brad’s friends already mentioned what a great couple they would be,” the insider told Mirror.
Pitt is said to have become completely captivated by her after they first met at the Oscars.
Andra mainly became known as a singer through her R&B debut album ‘Cheers to the Fall’, which she launched in 2015. A year later, she was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
She made her breakthrough as an actress with her portrayal of the legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday in ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’ for which she received an Oscar nomination in the category of Best Actress and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Drama Film.
The rumour that Brad Pitt is dating again comes the day after he lands a victory in the divorce battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The court decided that the former couple will be given joint custody. The decision was reportedly a major blow to the actress, as the presiding judge did not allow her or their children to testify.
According to Page Six, an insider claimed that Jolie had no objection to the decision, but she did to the lack of care for her family. She feels that the judge did not consider the issues affecting her family. The actress mainly refers to the allegations that Pitt once hit their son Maddox when they flew from France to the United States on a private jet.
