Brad Pitt's 29-year age gap with rumored flame Ines De Ramon 'isn't an issue' for him, sources say
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Brad Pitt's age gap with new flame Ines de Ramon "isn't an issue" in their relationship, a source has claimed. The Hollywood heartthrob, 59, is thought to have struck up a romance with the jewelry designer, 30, but an insider has insisted that their 29-year age gap has no bearing on their relationship.
Pitt was previously married to 'Mr and Mrs Smith' co-star Angelina Jolie from 2014 until 2019 and the exes are currently embroiled in a messy custody battle over their children Maddox, 21, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 14. However, sources with knowledge have claimed that Pitt's new relationship with Ramon is only getting stronger after she received the stamp of approval from the actor's pals.
“Brad and Ines are having a really wonderful time with each other,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Their relationship feels comfortable and playful.” Ramon, who is also a health coach, is apparently a “big hit with Brad’s friends” after only dating a couple of months and their age gap “isn’t an issue for either of them," the source added. The 'Fight Club' star is notably nearly three decades older than his girlfriend, but the insider insisted that the former has “more energy than ever" and that the twosome is “excited about what’s to come next for them."
Pitt sparked romance rumors with Ramon in November 2022 after the pair were spotted together at a Bono concert in Los Angeles. “Brad is smitten with Ines, but they aren’t officially dating,” an insider told Us Weekly in December 2022 after the duo was seen celebrating Pitt’s birthday together. “They’ve been spending time together as friends and really enjoy each other’s company.” The outlet confirmed later that month that the 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' was "officially dating" the fitness guru and they are “having a great time in the early stages of an early relationship.”
Earlier this month, another source told the magazine that the Oscar winner has been "hanging out a ton" with his new lover, noting how they went to art shows in Los Angeles and watched movies "over at his place" amid their new romance. “He’s been cooking for her, they work out and go on hikes, go over projects they both have, and bounce ideas off each other too,” the insider told the outlet on January 4.
It's worth noting that Pitt hasn't publicly commented on his relationship with the jewelry designer. However, he was snapped with her in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, over the New Year’s Eve weekend. Photos published by Page Six on January 3 showed the pair sunbathing as the Oklahoma native wore blue swim trunks while his girlfriend soaked up the sun topless during the outing.
That said, Pitt's new relationship emerged shortly after Us Weekly confirmed in September 2022 that he'd gone on a couple of dates with Emily Ratajkowski. The 'Django Unchained' star spilt from ex-wife Jolie in 2016. Prior to that, he was married to Jennifer Aniston from 2000 to 2005. De Ramon, for her part, was married to Paul Wesley for nearly three years before it was confirmed in September 2022 that they had parted ways five months prior.
