Soon after his highly publicised divorce with Angelina Joile, Brad Pitt was linked up romantically with his Allied co-star Marion Cottilard. While the rumours dissolved after the French actress issued a statement, another false report has surfaced on the internet claiming that the 52-year-old star is now dating Kate Hudson.

Women's Day has reported that the father-of-six has moved on from his bitter divorce and is looking for love with the Bride Wars actress. "Kate is Brad's mystery woman. They've become extremely close over the past few weeks, following several secret meet-ups," the website quoted a source.

The Australian magazine further quotes Pitt's former bodyguard Kris Herzog who thinks Hudson is "a wonderful woman," and that she and the World War Z actor would make a great pair. "I know both Kate and Brad, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if they were dating. Brad would be lucky to date her. They make a great celebrity couple!"

However, Gossip Cop debunked the speculations and quoted a source close to Pitt claiming the report is "not true." The Allied actor has been hit by romance rumours soon after his wife Jolie filed for divorce in September. The couple's attention is completely on their six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins, Vivienne and Knox, 8, as they are yet to finalise their custody battle.

The actor reportedly is not thinking about another relationship at the moment as he remains separated from them. He reportedly has had a heartbreaking weekend after the Maleficent star did not invite him for Thanksgiving to spend time with his children.

The 41-year-old academy Award winning actress filed for divorce on 19 September citing irreconcilable differences. Reports of the divorce came a day after an alleged altercation on a plane between the actor and their eldest son Maddox.
