Is Brad Pitt going back to school? A new report claims the actor wants to âimpressâ Neri Oxman by furthering his education. But a rep for the star confirms to Gossip Cop the tale is made-up.
The narrative comes from Naughty Gossip, which offers falsehoods right from the get-go by beginning, âBrad Pitt is head over heals in love with his new girlfriend, MIT professor Neri Oxman.â As first reported by Page Six, Oxman is not Pittâs âgirlfriend.â They are also not in any kind of romantic relationship where he would be âin loveâ with her. But using that untrue premise, along with the contention that Pittâs pals are âcomparingâ Oxman to âsuper smart Amal Clooney,â the blog alleges heâs âgoing back to school to impress her.â
The site quotes unnamed and untraceable âsources,â who collectively assert that the âbeautiful and smartâ Oxman has âno intention of giving up her studies and teaching,â but Pitt is âfinding out why intelligence is so much more sexy than anything.â As such, the outlet purports to have unidentifiable âinsiders,â who maintain that âalthough Brad is no dummy, he wants to step up his game and is enrolling in several classes to prove that he is not just a pretty face.â
Tellingly, though, thereâs a lot of key details missing from this report. For starters, thereâs no acknowledgment that Pitt attended the University of Missouri, but dropped out two weeks before graduation. At the time, he had been studying journalism and advertising. So, would Pitt return to his alma mater? Would he be focusing on media studies again? Or will the âclassesâ be in another subject area? Is he âenrollingâ in a school near Los Angeles, where he lives, or is he planning to do remote learning through online courses from the University of Phoenix?
While itâs not out of the realm of possibility that Pitt could explore his ongoing interest in architecture and design by taking a course of some sort, this article is so vague because itâs a fabrication, his rep confirms to Gossip Cop. The only truth it contains is that Oxman has, in fact, been compared to Amal Clooney. But George Clooney didnât go back to school to woo her, and thereâs no evidence Pitt has any intention of doing so to âimpressâ Oxman, either.
Gossip Cop would be remiss not to mention that Naughty Gossip falsely claimed Pitt and Angelina Jolie were âback togetherâ last November. Apparently the website still doesnât have credible insight on the actorâs life.
