AceShowbiz - Brad Pitt is reported to have "swapped numbers" with Andra Day at the Oscars. Amid custody battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, the "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" actor was caught "flirting" with the "Rise Up" hitmaker during the Academy Awards back in April.
"They were flirting backstage and are believed to have swapped numbers," a source informed The Mirror on Saturday, May 29. Spilling further, the source added, "It could be just professional, but some of Brad's pals have been talking about what a great couple they would make." The insider even stated that the 36-year-old singer has been on his "radar for a while."
The report came after the "World War Z" actor was awarded joint custody of his children following a bitter battle with his ex-wife Angelina. A judge in Los Angeles was said to have dismissed the 45-year-old actress' claims about his behavior and granted him joint custody of their minor children.
In March, Angelina filed new court documents claiming that she once experienced domestic violence with the 57-year-old actor. The legal documents further stated that the "Maleficent" actress and the former couple's children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne, were willing to offer "proof and authority in support" of her claims against the "Troy" actor.
Of the claims, a source close to Brad revealed that the "Ad Astra" star was "heartbroken" seeing how things went. "Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There's a lot of emotion left after their marriage," the source told HollywoodLife.com. The source added that Brad has taken responsibility for his actions and fixed his past issues by stop drinking.
"He talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together. Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial," the insider continued. "Brad feels like he's being more and more isolated from his children, and he's devastated about it." The inside source explained further that "the marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and they had fights, but also shared many good times together."
