After weeks of rumors that Brad Pitt had a new love in his life, MIT professor Neri Oxman, it looks like maybe it was just a “professional relationship” after all – just like one anonymous source claimed. This past week, cameras spotted Oxman in Paris watching Bill Ackman play tennis. Oxman and Ackman were reportedly an item before the Pitt rumors started. So, does this mean the Pitt and Oxman story is now behind us?
The Pitt and Oxman relationship rumors were all over the place back in April, but neither the actor or the architect acknowledged them or made any comment.
Now, according to Vanity Fair, Oxman is once again “openly affectionate” with Ackman – a financial rockstar and billionaire hedge fund manager at Pershing Square Holdings – who made a name for himself by going after Herbalife. He is also obsessed with tennis and played in a charity tournament this week, the Finance Cup, which puts financial bigwigs up against former pros.

Both Oxman and Ackman later attended a party at L’Arc and cameras caught them socializing with other industry heavyweights.
As for Pitt, recent court documents from his divorce proceedings with Angelina Jolie revealed that the judge has warned her about losing primary custody of the couple’s six kids if she doesn’t attempt to improve her relationship with her ex.
Someone leaked the documents, and a Jolie spokesperson said via a statement that it is misleading and not in the children’s best interest.
“From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately. It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening,” read the statement.

In the court filing, the judge in Pitt and Jolie’s case says that their kids not having a relationship with Pitt is harmful, and it is critical that they have a strong relationship with both parents. He also said that if the kids continue to be “closed down to their father,” it could result in Jolie getting reduced time with the children and Pitt getting primary custody.
The judge also gave Jolie a list of things she can do to improve Pitt’s access to the kids, including giving him each kid’s cell phone number and allowing him to call whenever he wants. And, the judge said Jolie could not read her kids text messages with their dad or monitor his calls.
The court also gave Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie a detailed visitation schedule for the summer, but it did not include Maddox because he is 16 and can decide how much time he wants to spend with his dad.
