UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 — Brad Pitt isn't “angry or upset" about Nicole Poturalski’s alleged “happy people don’t hate” comment, which some people thought was about Angelina Jolie, a source tells Us Weekly. The source also added, “At this time in his life, Brad is just happy that he has found someone that makes him feel cherished and loved.”
For the complete story, read below:
Brad Pitt and German model Nicole Poturalski have yet to publicly comment on their rumored relationship—but her latest Instagram post is certainly fueling the conversation that the two are dating. (Yes, Poturalski still has a public account on Instagram, which totally makes sense for her career but less so when you’re allegedly dating one of the most famous men on the planet.)
Poturalski recently posted a shot of herself in an orange minidress with the caption, “Happy people don’t hate.” This is a perfectly innocuous and positive message, but people started reading into it immediately; Poturalski even started replying to some of the comments. Entertainment Tonight reports one commenter wrote, “If so, then why you & Brad hate Angelina? Practice what you preach, girl.” Poturalski reportedly responded, “Not hating anyone.”
But in scrolling through the comments, it appears that exchange has now been deleted. Poturalski addressed why she was deleting comments, saying, “I delete comments that are offending because nobody needs hater on theis page thats why its ciaaaaooo immediately.”
Another commenter wrote, “Don’t get why ppl think that their opinion on someone elses relationship is RELEVANT & NEEDED. Save yrself some unneeded worry - stay out of OTHER ppls relationships. Especially since it’s NONE of yr business/not yr boyfriend/girlfriend!! Get a productive hobby and mind yr own business.” Brad Pitt is not referenced here by name—but Poturalski did respond, “🙏🏻🙏🏻.” Read into that what you will.
Pitt and Poturalski reportedly met through mutual friends over a year ago. “Brad and Nicole were introduced through friends, and when they first started seeing each other, they told no one about it. Even some of their inner circle of friends are only finding out now,” a source previously told Entertainment Tonight. “Brad has been very private about dating, and now more than ever he doesn’t want to rock the boat with Angelina. He has been working so hard on making his coparenting run smoothly.”
