Speculations about a possible romance between Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat arose after the two got spotted attending a Thundercat performance at the Wiltern in Los Angeles.
But, TMZ claims that the rumors are untrue. And as it turns out, the actor is not interested in taking on a serious relationship anytime soon.
An insider told the publication. “He doesn’t feel any need to get back on the dating scene right now- his focus is elsewhere.” About Brad and Alia, the source said that “they're not romantic ... it's strictly platonic.”
The source also told TMZ that Brad is now “much more involved in his kids' lives these days, so that's where most of his time and effort goes ... followed by work and his sobriety.”
Meanwhile, Pitt won his first acting Oscar for his role in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He also won prizes at other award shows. His speeches made headlines for their humor. But, the actor was unable to attend the BAFTAs because of family matters.
This week, reports revealed that Pitt reunited with his biological daughter, Shiloh. Shiloh recently underwent hip surgery. His ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, wrote a heartfelt story about her daughters’ struggles for TIME magazine.
Jolie’s piece read. “I have spent the last two months in and out of surgeries with my eldest daughter, and days ago watched her younger sister go under the knife for hip surgery. Zahara has been in and out of surgery, Jolie said, and Shiloh has had surgery on her hip. On Sunday the child was seen using crutches.”
