Inside Brad Pitt And Ines De Ramon's Relationship

It was a huge shock when fans learned that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in 2016. The exes were together for 12 years and married for two, and they were Hollywood's most iconic couple. As of this writing, the former partners have yet to finalize their divorce, as they are in a lengthy and messy custody battle over their minor children. However, in April 2019, a judge ruled Pitt and Jolie legally single. 

Since then, the "Ad Astra" actor has been deemed one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors. Pitt has been spotted with a few women since his split from Jolie, including a couple of models, and even gave fans hope that a reconciliation with his ex, Jennifer Aniston was in the works. The two were spotted hugging it out at the 2020 SAG Awards, although their reunion only let us know they were on friendly terms despite their 2005 divorce. Sadly, the one that got away was not meant to be a second time around.

However, Pitt appears happy and taken with a newfound love. As of late 2022, the star has been involved with jewelry designer Ines de Ramon. Here is everything we know about their blossoming romance so far. 

Ines de Ramon and Paul Wesley announced their separation in September 2022

"The Vampire Diaries" star Paul Wesley and Ines de Ramon kept most of their relationship under the radar. According to People, they made their romance Instagram official in July 2018, when Welsey posted a photo of the two, alongside actors Jessica Szohr and Nina Dobrev, at a wedding. The pair tied the knot in August 2018; however, their marriage wasn't confirmed until the following year. Wesley's "The Vampire Diaries" co-star Dobrev let the cat out of the bag when she referred to de Ramon as Wesley's wife, sharing on the "Directionally Challenged" podcast in June 2019, "We hang out a lot. We're really good friends. I love his wife."

A rep for the couple announced that they were separating in September 2022, although it was reported that they had made the mutual decision to split five months earlier. Neither Welsey nor de Ramon made mention of their split on social media. The exes did not share any children, but they did share a rescue dog named Gregory. In September 2020, Dobrev shared a post of herself, Wesley, and de Ramon with their dogs on a playdate. Meanwhile, de Ramon appeared to set her Instagram account to private following their split.  

She was linked to Brad Pitt two months later

Two months after it was revealed that Paul Wesley and Ines de Ramon split, the jewelry designer was linked to Brad Pitt. Photos ran by Daily Mail showed the pair attending a Bono concert in Los Angeles in November 2022. A video showed de Ramon and the actor casually dressed as they hung out backstage at the Orpheum Theatre along with A-list stars Cindy Crawford, her husband, Rande Gerber, and Sean Penn. Despite these initial photos of the two seemingly confirming a romance, People reported that they had "been dating for a few months."

The Daily Mail reported that de Ramon was part of Pitt's team, though People said that the two had met through a mutual friend. Whatever it may be, De Ramon has celebrity connections as she works for the Los Angeles-based jewelry company Anita Ko, with stars like Hailey Bieber and Olivia Wilde wearing the brand. According to de Ramon's LinkedIn, she has been the company's vice president since 2020. Before working with Anita Ko, de Ramon worked for the Swiss jewelry company, de Grisogono, for four years.

They attended Pitt's movie premiere for Babylon separately

In December 2022, Brad Pitt arrived at the Los Angeles premiere of his film "Babylon," which also stars Margot Robbie and Tobey Maguire. However, Pitt didn't come solo. Though he didn't walk the red carpet with his new beau, Ines de Ramon, People reported that she was present at the movie's afterparty, which marked the first time the pair were seen together at a major event. Pitt and de Ramon were seen "mingling with guests, occasionally with their arms around each other" during the party.

It marks what appears to be Pitt's first genuine love interest since Angelina Jolie. Before the actor and the jewelry designer went public with their romance, Pitt had found that using his creative side helped to take his mind off his lengthy divorce proceedings and custody battle with his former wife. In an interview for the Financial Times in October 2022, the actor shared that he had taken up sculpting, with several of his pieces reflecting the tough times in his life. "Out of this misery came a flame of joy in my life. I always wanted to be a sculptor; I'd always wanted to try it," Pitt shared. 

The pair celebrate Pitt's 59th birthday and ring in the New Year

Brad Pitt had Ines de Ramon by his side to celebrate his 59th birthday in December 2022. According to People, the rumored couple arrived at the Los Angeles restaurant Pace, where they dined with friends and sang happy birthday to the actor. A source reported, "He was in the best mood. He sat next to Ines. They were very cute and flirty. You could tell that she makes him happy." Photos run by Page Six showed Pitt and de Ramon getting out of the same car and smiling outside of the restaurant.

That same month, Pitt and de Ramon were seen privately ringing in the New Year while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. De Ramon was topless as her back was turned to the camera while Pitt appeared to be reading out of a large binder in his swim trunks. Their New Year's trip clarified to the public that they were an official couple. Days after their getaway, ET reported that the pair were "excited about where things are headed."

The couple have a nearly 30-year age gap

Brad Pitt celebrates a milestone birthday when he turns sixty this December. However, the actor and his love interest, Ines de Ramon, have a significant age difference. People reported that when they celebrated the "Moneyball" actor's 59th birthday, de Ramon was 32. According to Us Weekly, a source alleged that their age difference "isn't an issue for either of them." Meanwhile, large age gaps between Hollywood couples aren't new. And there hasn't been much talk about Pitt and de Ramon's age difference. Just take a look at Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, who share a 25-year age gap or the 17-year age difference between George Clooney and Amal Clooney.

In fact, before Pitt and de Ramon were officially an item, the actor reportedly dated two other models much younger than him. In September 2022, Pitt and model Emily Ratajkowski, 28 years younger than Pitt, were romantically linked after Us Weekly reported that they had "gone on a few dates." Before that, Pitt was linked to German model Nicole Poturalski in the summer of 2020. The pair had a 29-year age difference.  

Pitt and de Ramon are spotted having dinner in Paris

Brad Pitt showed off his romantic side when photos captured Ines de Ramon carrying a large bouquet of pink peonies on Valentine's Day. Photos from Daily Mail showed the jewelry designer with a smile as she held her flowers in her arms after getting out of work in Los Angeles. The pair reportedly could not spend the holiday together because of Pitt's work schedule. 

Despite being unable to spend Valentine's Day together, the couple was seen together later that month in Paris, France. A short video clip from Paris Match showed de Ramon seated next to Pitt while they dined among others at Fouquet's on the Champs-Élysées. According to People, the "Inglorious Basterds" star was in Paris for the 2023 César Film Awards, where he surprised director David Fincher, who directed Pitt in "Fight Club" and "Seven," with an honorary award.

In February, a source from Us Weekly shared that Pitt "really enjoys being with her because she's such an uplifting energy, she consistently looks on the bright side of things, and is always up for an adventure."

Paul Wesley files for divorce

As Brad Pitt and Ines de Ramon have seemingly confirmed their budding romance, the jewelry designer's ex, Paul Wesley, filed for divorce from de Ramon in February 2023, five months after the news of their separation came to light. According to divorce documents obtained by E! News, "The Vampire Diaries" star filed "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split and was not seeking spousal support. In fact, de Ramon filed for divorce on the same day and cited the same reasoning for their decision to part ways, with the documents stating that the former couple would decide later on how to divide their assets. 

Meanwhile, as de Ramon's relationship with Brad Pitt continues to heat up, Wesley has moved on, too. The actor has reportedly been dating model Natalie Kuckenburg, who is 18 years younger than the actor, since September 2022. They were spotted kissing while on a trip to Italy in November. The following month, the pair attended a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, and in February 2023, Kuckenburg shared a photo of herself with Wesley on Instagram. Looking at Kuckenburg's Instagram, the model has been happily enjoying doggy duties with what looks like Wesley and de Ramon's rescue dog, Gregory.
