Brad Pitt has been sparking rumors that he’s dating again weeks after his rumored split from Emily Ratajkowski.

Last week, the Bullet Train actor was photographed with a mystery brunette. And the photo shows the rumored couple hugging each other.

Now, New Idea, in its Nov. 28 issue, is claiming that the mystery woman with Pitt is his girlfriend and that his friends couldn’t be more thrilled to know that he’s dating again.

A source claimed that after Pitt split from Angelina Jolie in 2016, it has always been his desire to find someone that he could spend the rest of his life with.

“He wants to find that special someone to be with long-term. The trouble is that he hates the process and how he can’t even step out for a friendly coffee without it being gossiped about,” the source said.

Prior to Pitt and the mystery woman’s outing, the actor was linked to Ratajkowski. But the rumors quickly died down after the model was photographed kissing another man.

Weeks later, Ratajkowski is now being linked to Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend, Pete Davidson.

Last year, Ratajkowski gushed over Davidson but at the time, the Saturday Night Live alum was still dating the SKIMS founder.

“He seems super charming, he’s vulnerable, he’s lovely, and his fingernail polish is awesome. Like, he looks good, he’s great,” she said (via Us Weekly).

But even though Ratajkowski seemed fond of Davidson, there’s still no confirmation regarding the real status of their relationship. It is possible that the A-listers are just hanging out.

There’s also no proof that Pitt is dating the mystery woman that he was photographed with. It is possible that the woman is just the actor’s friend and nothing more.

It’s not also in Pitt’s nature not to share with the world if he’s dating someone. So, the fact that he hasn’t said anything proves that he could still be single today.

Pitt is focused on other things right now like his custody battle with Jolie, as well as the lawsuit that he filed against his ex-wife.

Even though the exes have been divorced for over six years, they still have not reached a compromise because Jolie refuses to share custody of their minor children with her ex-husband.
