Brad Pitt and Sat Hari Khalsa are just"'close friends", despite several reports claiming that the actor has quietly started dating the jewellery designer and spiritual healer.

They are simply friends and the rumours of a romance between the two are entirely false, reports E! News. At the after party of his film "Ad Astra's" success celebrations, Sat Hari Khalsa was with another girlfriend and talking to Brad Pitt, "but at no point during the party there appeared to be an obvious PDA or any indication that they were romantic".

"Brad didn't really talk to her much, he was talking to different groups of people. "It was just friendly and not romantic". Pitt and Khalsa were first spotted together in September last year at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music Gala thrown by Red Hot Chili Pepper in Los Angeles.

However, according to a contrasting report of US Weekly, the actor is dating the 50-year-old healer and is attracted to her as "she is very strong and has a beautiful mind." The report further says the relationship isn't "too heavy or serious" yet but Khalsa is very special to Pitt and he likes spending time with her.

On the other hand, the E! report claims the healer is instead helping the 55-year-old actor on his spiritual journey.

"She's providing him with some guidance and has been a welcome breath of fresh air and spirituality in his life," a source told E! News.

The "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" actor's dating life has been making headlines with different ever since his split with long-time partner and former wife Angelina Jolie. While MIT professor Neri Oxman was the most recent girl that was rumoured to be dating the star, Kate Hudson, Sienna Miller and Charlize Theron were also seen with him. However, none of these rumours have been confirmed by Pitt.
