Just when we thought things between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were going well, things have gone back to being messy – and if sources are to be believed, it’s about to get a whole lot uglier.
The Maleficent actress is reportedly fuming after her 56-year-old ex took his new girlfriend, German model Nicole Poturalski (27), to their former marital home in the south of France.
Making matters worse is the new lovebirds visited Chateau Miraval, where Brad produces wine, only days after what would have been his and Angie’s sixth wedding anniversary. “Angie is furious and utterly stunned Brad could stoop this low,” a source tells The Mirror. “It is just beyond tacky and inappropriate.”
Brad’s baecation will do his ongoing bitter divorce battle no favours. “Angie was highly hopeful they could dial down the intensity after a terrible summer of fighting, but now that’s totally off the table,” the source continues. “It grosses her out he’s cavorting around Europe so publicly with this girl, instead of keeping a private and dignified lid on his love life. This will make it even harder for them to see eye-to-eye about anything.”
It’s a pity, given the two had managed to iron out some of their differences in recent months. The pair were spotted spending time at each other’s’ homes but then Angie demanded the judge in their divorce case step down because he had business dealings with Brad’s attorneys. Her attempts to remove John W Ouderkirk, who incidentally married the couple in France, have however failed and the judge is still overseeing their drawn-out divorce.
By all accounts it seems Brad is now done being the nice guy. “The way Brad sees it, she’s made his life hell for years by blocking so many of his basic requests and his efforts to be fair and cordial. He’s always said he’ll stand up to her for what’s right, but she wants everything on her own terms.”
Meanwhile, Nicole continues to show off her sizzling good looks on Instagram. The lush-lipped, long-legged model – who has been compared to a younger Angie – has been posing up a storm. Sources say she and Brad have been secretly dating for nine months after meeting at her husband’s upscale restaurant in Berlin last year. Nicole and her husband of eight years, restaurateur Roland Mary (68), are reportedly in an open marriage. They also have a young son, Emil.
