The rumors of a possible romance between Brad Pitt and MIT professor Neri Oxman continue to swirl while sources contradict each other over whether their relationship is platonic. But, no matter how serious things are between Pitt and Oxman, Angelina Jolie is reportedly furious about the new woman in her ex’s life.
Pitt hasn’t made an attempt to shut down any of the rumors, but his reps have said that the actor and professor are friends. When a tabloid claimed that he was “smitten” with Oxman, Pitt’s team said it was an “exaggeration,” but that is a lot different than calling it a fabrication. So, the rumors continue.

Meanwhile, Radar Online is reporting that Pitt is gushing to his friends about Oxman.
“He’s so attracted to her and he’s telling pals she’s the sexiest woman he’s ever met,” says an insider. “In fact, he admits to the same pals that Neri might be TOO good for him.”
The source goes on to say that Pitt is worried that he won’t be able to keep up with Oxman in conversation. So, the 54-year-old is learning all he can about architecture and design, so he can impress her because he believes she could be his next wife.
However, Pitt’s advisors are worried that his relationship with Oxman could end up costing him in court because of how manipulative Jolie is. The former couple has yet to finalize their divorce or reach a custody agreement, and Pitt’s team is concerned about Jolie’s reaction to him openly seeing another woman.
When Pitt and Jolie first split back in September 2016, she made unfounded claims of him being a child abuser, so it is no secret how vindictive she can be. An insider claims that Pitt’s team is so worried about what Jolie could do, they asked him to hold off on the relationship with Oxman until they signed the divorce and custody papers.
But, the Fight Club star refused the requests because he doesn’t want to put “his life on hold” or let Jolie use the kids as pawns in their divorce negotiations.

Sources say Pitt is taking a stand against his ex, but Jolie is unpredictable, and there is fear that all of the progress the former couple has made in their custody negotiations may disappear because the 42-year-old is unhappy about Pitt’s new love.
This could take things to another level because of Jolie’s obsession with her public image. She hired a crisis management team after she and Pitt split. And, now that it appears that he has found love first, Brad Pitt’s team is terrified of what Jolie’s response will be.
