The drama between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues—or, at least, the rumored drama does. The latest chapter involves Pitt’s new girlfriend, German model Nicole Poturalski
Last month, Pitt took Poturalski with him on a trip that involved a stay at Chateau Miraval, the castle in France where he and Jolie tied the knot in August 2014. Pitt and Jolie purchased Miraval together in 2008 and, as of last fall, were reportedly still fighting over who would get the $67 million property in their divorce. To make matters even more popcorn-worthy, Pitt and Poturalski’s trip coincided with his and Jolie’s wedding anniversary.
“Taking Nicole to Miraval on their former wedding anniversary, Brad knows exactly what he is doing and the reaction it’s going to get from Angelina,” a source told Us Weekly of the move at the time. “He just doesn’t care if Angelina is going to lash out. He expects she will.”
Turns out, Pitt was right in assuming that Jolie wouldn’t be thrilled with his very public romantic getaway to their wedding venue with his new love. According to The Mirror, she is “furious and utterly stunned Brad could stoop this low.”
“It grosses her out that he’s cavorting around Europe so publicly with this girl, instead of keeping a private and dignified lid on his love life,” the Mirror‘s source explained. “The fact he’s apparently taken them to her marital home is just beyond tacky and inappropriate, however Brad wants to cut it.”
Pitt and Jolie also recently made headlines for their increasingly-contentious divorce proceedings.
The world collectively gasped when the news broke that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were splitting up. But what we didn’t see was the struggle the couple had endured for years — one that made Angelina desperate to figure a way out of their problems.
In her eyes, what would save their marriage was simpler than couple’s counseling. She had a plan, but it meant looking back to the past. And there were moments in her past that were especially painful to revisit…
After disastrous marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, Angelina Jolie just wanted to raise her newly adopted son, Maddox, and move on with her life and career. But in 2005, she met someone who shook up her entire plan.
“Brangelina” famously began on the set of the film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, where they high-kicked their ways into each other’s hearts. Both of them were gorgeous, international movie stars, so they seemed like the perfect pair. There was just one problem.
Brad was already married to America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston. The scandal forced them to keep their relationship private. But after a year, Brangelina had to let the world in on their romance, and for a very obvious reason…
Angelina was pregnant. The couple’s baby, Shiloh, ended up becoming one of the most famous babies in Hollywood history. By 2008, when Angelina again gave birth, this time to twins, it seemed like Brangelina was as happy as ever.
But all wasn’t as it seemed in the Jolie-Pitt household, as Angelina revealed a year after their divorce. Angelina opened up about how she felt as her marriage fell apart…and the plan she hoped would save their love.
Angelina’s only hope for their relationship was a shared project, the 2015 film By The Sea. “We had met working together and we worked together well,” she said. “I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate.”
But the reviews for By The Sea were not kind, with many critics calling Brad and Angelina, though “dazzlingly gorgeous,” totally devoid of any emotional weight. Their performance as a couple was called “empty,” an opinion that would soon prove to be ironic.

Pitt took Poturalski to the Chateau Miraval in the South of France, last week, which is where he tied the knot with Jolie in 2014.
The trip also seemed to coincide with Pitt’s wedding anniversary, though sources told US Weekly that Pitt doesn’t care if Jolie gets upset about it.
‘Taking Nicole to Miraval on their former wedding anniversary, Brad knows exactly what he is doing and the reaction it’s going to get from Angelina,’ the source said.
