Brad Pitt’s rumoured new girlfriend Nicole Poturalski gained worldwide attention last week after the pair were spotted jetting off to the south of France.
Pitt, 56, and Poturalski, 27, were seen after touching down at the South of France’s Le Castellet Airport via private jet.
Reports claim the pair will be spending time at Château Miraval, an estate the World War Z star bought for $67 million in 2011 with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, 45.
New reports claim that Poturalski is actually married to 68-year-old Roland Mary with whom she has a son … but what else is there to know about the mysterious woman who has stolen the actor’s heart?
SHE’S IN AN OPEN MARRIAGE
The German model has been married to well-known German restaurateur Roland Mary for eight years. According to the Daily Mail, Mary “doesn’t mind” that his young wife is dating the Hollywood star.
“They are still married, but you could describe their relationship as an open marriage,” a source told the publication.
“He has been married several times and has five children. He is not interested in negativity or jealousy.”
Mary was spotted for the first time in public yesterday since Poturalski and Pitt started dating, heading to his Berlin restaurant Borchardt.
When asked about his wife’s trip with Pitt to France, he said simply: “No comment.”
THEY WERE PHOTOGRAPHED TOGETHER LAST YEAR
In fact, reports claim that Pitt and Poturalski first met at Mary’s restaurant while he was promoting his film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
“Brad first met Nicole in August last year at Borchardt which is her husband Roland’s restaurant,” a friend of Nicole told MailOnline.
“Brad Pitt has been coming to Borchardt for years. He knows Roland and Nicole was at the restaurant when he came to celebrate his new film.
“Brad was introduced to Nicole and she passed him her number.”
One week later Poturalski flew to Los Angeles to meet with Pitt, and they were photographed together in November 2019 at a Kanye West concert.
SHE’S WELL-KNOWN IN GERMANY
While not many people have heard of Poturalski before, she’s a pretty successful model in Germany.
ELLE reports that Poturalski uses the name Nico Mary professionally and is represented by A Management, Official Models, and NEXT Models. She has already appeared on several magazine covers, including ELLE Germany.
SHE HAS BIG DREAMS
She wasn’t always set on being a model. According to the Daily Mail, she planned on being a marine biologist, but everything changed when she was discovered by a model talent scout at Disneyland Paris.
In a statement from her modelling profile, when asked what her ultimate superpower would be, she said: “Travelling in time so I can visit all those amazing and historical events myself, including the future.”
SHE FOUNDED A SHARK AID CENTRE
While she is an incredibly successful model, Poturalski completed her Abitur – German A levels – and founded an organisation devoted to helping sharks.
SHE IS A MUM
Poturalski and her husband Roland Mary are parents to their son Emil, 7. The model occasionally shares photos of him on her Instagram, in February calling him her “best friend”.
SHE IS POLITICAL
Poturalski hasn’t shied away from getting political on social media. In May, she uploaded a photo of herself wearing a shirt that read: “Protect Kids, Not Guns.”
In March this year, she posted to her Instagram Story to raise awareness for Black Lives Matter, stating: “They can’t raise their voice cause nobody hears them. It’s on us young people. Educate and watch out for your younger fellow humans. Change is needed. Be kind to anyone and your best. I will do the same.”
SHE IS MULTILINGUAL
The Daily Mail reports that the model can speak five different languages which stems from her international modelling experience, working on cover shoots and catwalks around the world, including New York, Paris and Milan.
SHE IS A CAPRICORN
Poturalski was born on January 2, 1993.
SHE SPORTS A TINY NECK TATTOO
She has a small tattoo that reads “moon” on the back of her neck.
