After heartbreaking divorce, Brad Pitt, 60, has new girlfriend who makes him “very happy” – and you might recognize her

At one point in time, Brad Pitt might well have been considered the most eligible bachelor on Earth. No more.

Fans have known for some time now about his romance with Ines de Ramon. The couple have been together since late 2022, but continue to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. In fact, they have have never gone public with their relationship or posed for pictures together.

Ines de Ramon is a jewelry designer and was previously married to actor Paul Wesley, who starred in The Vampire Diaries. The couple divorced in 2022 after three years of marriage – but de Ramon seems to have moved on quite quickly.

According to the latest reports and gossip around town, Brad Pitt is “head-over-heels in love” and even wants to marry the jewelry designer. In February 2023, the Daily Mail reported that she and Pitt “are quite serious” and have developed a strong connection due to their respective divorces.

In 2023, a source is said to have spoken to PEOPLE and described De Ramon, ex-wife of actor Paul Wesley, as “Brad’s first proper relationship since the divorce” from Angelina Jolie.

Indeed, the Troy star is also said to have started introducing the 34-year-old as his girlfriend. On Brad’s 60th birthday in December 2023, the actor arranged a four-hour dinner at LA’s Mother Wolf restaurant, inviting Ines de Ramon and over six of their friends to join them.

“He introduces [Ines] as his girlfriend,” an insider PEOPLE. “It’s great to see him in a good place. Ines makes him very happy.”

Reports about an upcoming marriage between Brad Pitt and the Swiss jewelry professional remain somewhat vague. According to some sources, Brad seems to have some reservations, particularly concerning financial matters, if we are to believe Radar Online.

According to the tabloid, Brad is being cautious when considering a potential marriage with Ramon, who is said to be ”zero drama and very low-key”.

It’s understood that he will require her to sign a prenuptial agreement to protect his assets, a precaution learned from his contentious asset-sharing legal battle with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.

“He isn’t taking any chances this time. Brad is going to insist that Ines sign a rock-solid prenup to protect as much as $650 million in his assets and future holdings,” a source told Radar Online.

It’s been a rocky road back to happiness for Pitt, whose marriage to Angelina Jolie ended in a tumultuous separation, the wounds of which still don’t appear to have fully healed.

Famously dubbed ‘Brangelina’ in the media, the A-listers fell in love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, embarking on a romance that stole headlines all over the world.

In 2016, however, Jolie filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. She also moved to request sole custody of the pairs six children, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne and Knox.

On January 21, 2021, Angelina Jolie emailed Brad Pitt, an email which has since then made public. In the email, she mentions that she writes “with a heavy heart” to inform Pitt of her decision to sell Miraval, “a business that is centered around alcohol.” This is perhaps a reference to the now infamous plane event where an intoxicated Pitt “choked” one of their children and then “struck another in the face” before he poured alcohol on her and the kids.

As recently as October did Brad find his name in the headlines for a less than savory reason, after an old Instagram story surfaced wherein his adopted son Pax had labeled him a “f****ing awful human being”.

Pax, who was 16 at the time, expressed his displeasure with his father and warned him “the truth will come to light someday.”

“You time and time and again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person,” Pax wrote over an image of his father accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

“You have no consideration or empathy toward your four youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence.

“You will never understand the damage you have done to my family because you’re incapable of doing so.

“You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell,” the teen continued. “You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but the truth will come to light someday.”
