Brad Pitt was not â€śdumpedâ€ť by MIT professor Neri Oxman because she got â€śscared offâ€ť by the actorâ€™s custody battle with Angelina Jolie, despite a made-up report. As Gossip Cop has repeatedly noted, Oxman and Pitt never dated in the first place. We can debunk this latest article on the subject.
According to RadarOnline, Oxman split from the movie star and started a relationship with billionaire hedge-fund manager Bill Ackman because she couldnâ€™t deal with his divorce drama. An alleged insider tells the magazine, â€śBrad isnâ€™t giving up on Neri and has been calling her nonstop to try and get her to take him back.â€ť
The outletâ€™s supposed source goes on to say that Oxman was â€śspooked away from Brad because he had to take Angie to court just to get to see his kids this summer.â€ť The seemingly nonexistent tipster adds, â€śDating Brad was creating enough stress and headlines, but once Angie made it clear the custody battle was going to become a circus, Neri was out!â€ť
The blogâ€™s article is based on claims from an anonymous â€śsource,â€ť but Pittâ€™s own rep has told Gossip Cop several times on the record that he never had a romance with the professor. This has been backed up by several other publications. The New York Post reported in April that Pitt and Oxman share a â€śprofessional friendship.â€ť People similarly noted that Pitt and Oxmanâ€™s friendship â€śis not romantic.â€ť And E! News also confirmed that Pitt and Oxman are â€śstrictly friends.â€ť
It should also be noted, the websiteâ€™s timeline doesnâ€™t add up. The outlet claims that the MIT professor dumped the actor â€śin early July,â€ť but Oxman was spotted with Ackman in June at the Finance Cup. The Daily Mail noted that she â€ścheered onâ€ť her boyfriend from the stands at the tennis tournament, and the two â€śwere openly affectionateâ€ť at party following the match. Itâ€™s unclear when the couple started dating, but itâ€™s rumored theyâ€™ve been together since at least April.
Itâ€™s also worth mentioning, the romance rumors surrounding Pitt and Oxman died down a couple of months ago when it became clear they werenâ€™t in a relationship. It seems RadarOnline is just reviving the phony narrative following new reports about Pitt and Jolieâ€™s custody battle intensifying over child support.
Conclusion: Despite the blog claiming Oxman â€śdumpedâ€ť Pitt, itâ€™s been established by the actorâ€™s spokesperson and several reliable publications that they never dated. The siteâ€™s bogus premise doesnâ€™t make sense chronologically either. Oxman has been seeing Ackman for several months. Every aspect of the outletâ€™s article is provably untrue.
