One of this weekâ€™s tabloids claims a romance could be developing between Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts as theyâ€™ve been meeting up for dinner dates. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the bogus story. A rep for the actor tells us thereâ€™s no truth to it.
â€śIs Julia Roberts about to go from Runaway Bride to runaway wife?â€ť asks the latest issue of OK! According to the magazine, she and Pitt were recently spotted â€śarm in arm in the lobby of the Beverly Hills hotel.â€ť However, not a single other outlet has reported that the two were seen together at the establishment, nor are there any paparazzi pictures to back it up. Still, an alleged insider tells the magazine that Robertsâ€™ friends suspect her feelings for the actor â€śmay be more than platonic.â€ť
The outletâ€™s questionable source continues, â€śJulia says their dinner dates are nothing more than a friendly catching up, but itâ€™s hard to deny their amazing chemistry.â€ť The tipster further contends that Pitt and Roberts, who co-starred together in 2001â€™s The Mexican, could have potentially became a couple years ago, â€śbut the timing was never right for them to be anything more than friends, as one of them was always dating someone else.â€ť
Of course, the actress has been married to cinematographer Danny Moder for nearly 16 years, but the â€śsourceâ€ť insists that Pitt â€śis someone who really understands what it means to be a Hollywood royal in a way Danny canâ€™t.â€ť Be that as it may, Roberts isnâ€™t leaving her husband for the movie star.
The magazine story comes from an anonymous and untraceable â€śsource,â€ť but Pittâ€™s own spokesperson tells Gossip Cop on the record that he and Roberts havenâ€™t been meeting up for â€śdinner dates.â€ť Although itâ€™s true the movie stars have remained friendly over the years, thereâ€™s no romance developing between the two. Pitt and Roberts havenâ€™t been photographed together since both attended a screening of Moonlight in 2016. If the high-profile stars were actually going out and dining together, itâ€™s nearly impossible that the paparazzi wouldnâ€™t have spotted them.
Meanwhile, Us Weekly published an article last month dedicated to Roberts and Moderâ€™s â€śsolid, loving marriage.â€ť The report notes that the coupleâ€™s secret to keeping their relationship strong is â€śalways making time for each otherâ€ť and being â€śhands-on parentsâ€ť to their three young kids. The notion that the actress would consider tearing apart her family to date Pitt is simply false.
