What would humanity be without rumors and drama? As the Netflix series hit "Bridgerton" proved to us, people have always enjoyed the most intimate scandals and news of interesting people. And who are Brad Pitt and Emily Ratajkowski if not two of the most interesting people in Hollywood?
Brad Pitt and Emily Ratajkowski: these are the facts
Emily Ratajkowski, also known as Emrata, is a model, actress and author of the best-selling book "My Body". She has a strong opinion, works hard for women's rights and is not afraid of being arrested for it. The model has a one-year-old son, Sylvester Apollo, whom she raised together with her (ex-)husband Sebastian Bear-McClard. In June 2022, however, it was announced that the two had separated, as Sebastian had apparently cheated several times – Emrata was in the process of filing for divorce. Since then, she has focused primarily on her son.

Brad Pitt has been enjoying his single life for some time and is currently on tour for his new film "Bullet Train". On the red carpet he seems relaxed and at ease. According to the industry magazine "People", Brad Pitt has a large "artsy" group of friends in L.A., with whom he meets regularly, and is always dating – though he is not in a committed relationship.
Brad Pitt and Emily Ratajkowski – that's what's behind the rumors.
On August 11, 2022, the real-life lady-whistledown account (or "Gossip Girl" for the millennials among us) "DeuxMoi" posted on Reddit that Emily Ratajkowski and Brad Pitt had been spotted on several dates. DeuxMoi is an account that is active on both the blogging platform Reddit and Instagram, and is always posting rumors about celebrities' love lives. A few of the speculations turned out to be true afterwards, but most of them were disproved after a few weeks.
The rumor started on Instagram when DeuxMoi posted in his Story that Brad Pitt has been dining with a model lately, whose divorce has been in the news more often in recent weeks. This was followed by a more detailed post on Reddit, which explained that the two had met for dinner in a private room at a glamorous Paris restaurant – where they were said to have spent several hours together. A few days later, on August 15, 2022, an update followed in an Instagram story in which the account confidently claimed, "I'm very sure she (Emily Ratajkowski) is dating Brad." Below that was a screenshot of a conversation with an anonymous source confirming that Brad Pitt and Emily Ratajkowski were spotted at another restaurant again.

Neither Brad Pitt nor Emily Ratajkowski have spoken out about the rumors – nor have any pictures or official sources on the subject surfaced. It remains to be seen if there really is a relationship behind the alleged sightings of the two or if we will have to wait for the new season of "Bridgerton" instead.
