Ever since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split 18 months ago, the tabloids have connected both to just about every unattached celebrity imaginable. But the latest report about Pitt’s love life seems to have some merit, and insiders say that Jolie thinks it is true and is upset about the news.
The Hollywood Gossip is reporting that Pitt has moved on with MIT professor Neri Oxman, and even though Pitt’s reps are denying the relationship, Jolie believes the two are romantically involved. And, the Oscar-winning actress is afraid she is going to come across as the uninteresting Hollywood type when the media inevitably compares her to Oxman, because the professor is highly intelligent, politically engaged, and socially conscious.
“Angelina is steaming with emotions and jealousy,” reveals a source close to Jolie. “She doesn’t like to hear any of the dating rumors about her ex… She can‘t handle it.”
The source went on to say that Jolie was surprised to feel envy when she first saw Oxman, but when she saw her pictures, the 42-year-old couldn’t help but to be jealous.
Apparently, it’s Oxman’s intelligence that has thrown Jolie for a loop. The MIT professor is the last person she would have picked for her ex, and she would be a lot more comfortable if he were dating another actress.

But, Jolie thinks that Oxman is out of Pitt’s league, and she takes comfort in that. The mom-of-six knows that the professor is not Pitt’s type – at least compared to the women he has dated in the past.
Pitt and Oxman have been hanging out since last November when he sat in on one of her classes at the MIT lab, and one insider claims the two got romantically involved almost instantly.
The 54-year-old had planned to stay at MIT for two days last fall, but he ended up staying for a week after seeing Oxman’s 3D printed chaise lounges. He set up a face-to-face meeting, and then Oxman invited him to dinner at her Cambridge apartment.
A second source claims that the two strictly have a professional friendship, but the first insider claims that is just a cover-up, and the two are definitely an item.

Eyewitnesses claim to have seen Pitt going into Oxman’s apartment building on several occasions and then leaving the next morning when she goes to teach. There are even claims that Pitt has his own key.
When the couple hangs out at Oxman’s place, they have been ordering in from their favorite restaurants, since Oxman doesn’t cook.
The two have also done a bit of traveling together. Pitt tagged along on her recent trip to South Africa where she gave a speech at the Design Indaba Conference.
After a tough year-and-a-half, Pitt has seemingly found some happiness, and it has everything to do with Oxman. Being around her is intoxicating for Brad Pitt, and he is glowing around her.
