HOLLYWOOD: Brad Pitt’s marriages to two of the world’s most famous women, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, may have ended in divorce – but friends still expect he’ll marry again.
“He’s not a monk!” said one pal. The 54-year-old star has been dating quietly amid a turbulent and ongoing divorce from Jolie, which has still not been finalized due to a bitter custody battle over their six children.
“To say these two years have been a nightmare is an understatement,” a source close to Pitt told The Post.
Since Jolie, 43, stunned Hollywood by filing for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 after 12 years together, every woman the actor is seen with is dubbed a potential new fling by the media.
In April, a friendship with American-Israeli MIT professor Neri Oxman, 42, sparked reports of romance.
Oxman denied any romantic relationship in an interview with The New York Times earlier this month, and Page Six recently reported that the instructor of media arts and sciences is now engaged to billionaire hedge-fund manager Bill Ackman. Pitt met her while both were involved in an architecture project at MIT. But “Brad was never dating Neri – they are friends and their relationship is totally professional,” the pal said.
Then, on Oct. 1, Pitt was pictured enjoying the company of spiritual healer and jewelry designer Sat Hari Khalsa, 49, at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music annual benefit and art auction in Los Angeles, hosted by their mutual pal, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.
Pitt is a close friend of the musician, while Sat has toured with his band as a holistic nurse – giving the Chili Peppers ozone therapy, in which the gas is pumped intravenously into the body to purify the bloodstream.
Sat — an American Sikh who was shipped off to boarding school in the Himalayas at the age of 10 – reportedly found her way into the lyrics of a 2002 Chili Peppers song, “Can’t Stop”: “So smart she’s leading me to ozone.” In his 2004 memoir, “Scar Tissue,” band frontman Anthony Kiedis also calls her one of his “main soul mates,” albeit seemingly platonic.
