BRAD Pitt was caught ‘flirting’ with Andra Day at this year’s Oscars, according to reports.
The pair were said to have “swapped numbers” at the glitzy event, which was held in Los Angeles last month.
A source told The Mirror: “They were flirting backstage and are believed to have swapped numbers. It could be just professional, but some of Brad’s pals have been talking about what a great couple they would make.”
The report comes after Brad won the right to joint custody of his children following a bitter battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, 45.
There were allegations Brad, 57, had been abusive to their son Maddox, then 15, on a private jet flight from France to the US – although no charges were ever bought.
Judge John Ouderkirk did not believe such claims, and said custody of their children should be split equally.
In a lengthy ruling, the judge said Angelina’s testimony “lacked credibility in many important areas.”
An insider told The Sun at the legal battle, which has been going on since the couple’s split in 2016, has been “hell on earth” for Brad.
“This whole experience for Brad has been hell on earth from beginning to end, and he’s not resting on his laurels just yet,” he said.
“He knows Angelina will continue to fight him with everything she’s got, not just by appealing the judge’s ruling, but pulling out every other dirty trick she can think of to make him look like the bad guy, and her the victim.
“So he is on guard and still talking to his lawyers about strategy, while waiting for those extra visits with the kids where he’ll get to spend that precious extra time with them.”
Brad and Angelina share six children – Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12.
The actor is now determined not to do anything that will cause any more drama – and does hope that he and Angelina can be civil with each other at some point in the future, the source said.
