More than a year and a half after their shocking separation, reports have surfaced that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce is about to be finalized. The former couple has “agreed on terms,” and have done all they can to keep things respectful for the sake of their six children. Now that Brangelina is finally a thing of the past, and the recent news breaking that Jolie is seeing someone new, is it possible that Pitt has moved on with a genius professor?
Page Six is reporting that Pitt has been spending time with Neri Oxman, an architecture and design aficionado who is a professor of media arts and sciences at the MIT media lab. The two recently met through an MIT architecture project and have become good friends.
“Brad and Neri instantly hit it off because they share the same passion for architecture, design, and art. This is best described as a professional friendship,” reveals an insider.
Their relationship has not turned into a romance, but Pitt is interested in spending more time with Oxman because he finds her fascinating.

Oxman is an award-winning Israeli-American architect who once was married to Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov, who she claims has had an “incredible influence” on her work. The 42-year-old founded and directs the Mediated Matter group that conducts research in architecture with natural and biological elements and bonding design. Her team also builds 3-D printers that can print biological matter and glass.
According to her bio, she also pioneered the field of Material Ecology that “considers computation, and the material itself as inseparable dimensions of design.”
Animals or natural processes have created some of Oxman’s best-known works, including The Silk Pavilion, a 2013 installation woven by 6,500 silkworms on a dome.
Pitt is a known architecture enthusiast who founded the Make It Right foundation that builds affordable homes in New Orleans for people in need.
Since his split from Jolie, Pitt has kept a low profile, but after a dark period following the breakup, sources are saying he is in a better place now and excited about life.
