Brad Pitt and 'girlfriend' Nicole Poturalski were 'very flirty' at Berlin bash amid claims she's in an 'open marriage'
BRAD Pitt and his model 'girlfriend' Nicole Poturalski were 'very flirty' at a Berlin bash despite claims she's still married.
The couple has allegedly had eyes for each other since meeting last year.
A source close to the couple revealed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that Brad and Nicole, 27, have known each other for at least a year and met at a party after the August 2019 Berlin premiere of his movie Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.
An eyewitness to their first meeting said: "They were very flirty."
Following their meeting, a second source said that the rumored couple has met up a handful of times in Los Angeles and France.
"They are spending some time together on vacation and are enjoying each other’s company while traveling," the source said.
Nicole and Brad had actually been first photographed chatting and laughing as they sat next to each other in a VIP box at the Hollywood Bowl on November 25.
At the time, Brad's close friend, Arrested Development actress Alia Shawkat, was sitting behind the pair. But fans were more focused on Brad and Alicia as rumors swirled they were dating before the actor shot those rumors down.
Journalist and best-selling author of Winner Takes All, Christina Binkley, revealed exclusively to The Sun she had a front-row seat to watch the rumored lovebirds connect at Kanye's concert.
Christina told The Sun: "We were there for hours because Kanye was late, I'd been backstage with him and came out to my seat as Brad and the group were arriving."
"I was sitting one box away from Brad and the girl at the concert.
"I would never have remembered it except they both looked really happy and smitten. They didn't behave 'together' – there was no touching.
"He had arrived with the group, and there was talk he was dating the actress [Alia Shakwat, who arrived with them]."
But Christina says the Oscar winner appeared to only have eyes for Nicole as they were pictured staring at each other and whispering in-between songs.
She added: "It seemed they were two people who had just met recently, they were a little shy and the sparks were flying.
"It stuck with me because they both looked thrilled in a very sweet way."
However, things seemingly became more official when Nicole and Brad were photographed getting cozy as they arrived at France's Le Castellet Airport last Wednesday.
A source told The Sun exclusively: "They looked really close.
"Insiders told us that they were very discreet around people but very cuddly inside private places like cars and inside the private jet."
The source added: "All morning witnesses told us that they have seen people organizing Miraval nicely for they arrival.
"Seems Brad wanted their stay to be very special. It’s the first time that a woman has set foot in Miraval since Angelina Jolie."
Brad and Nicole further shocked fans as it was revealed that the model is married to restauranteur Roland Mary, 68.
An insider said that Roland "is a very philosophical guy" and "is not interested in negativity or jealousy."
The source told the Daily Mail: "They are still married but you could describe their relationship as an 'open marriage."
He is also the father of Nicole's son, Emil.
Brad and Nicole allegedly met in August 2019 at her 68-year-old husband Roland Mary's restaurant in Berlin, celeb hotspot Borchardt.
Sources close to the model have claimed she "passed him her number" after they were introduced, and she later connected with him while she was in LA for work.
