Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat have been pictured in each other’s company a lot in the past couple of months, but they were finally separated this weekend.
Arrested Development actress Alia was spotted flying out of Los Angeles on Sunday and appeared to be alone. The 30-year-old actress was in high spirits as she arrived at LAX airport, trudging along with two large suitcases and two other bags.
We’re only that chirpy once we’ve made it through security and into Wetherspoons. Alia’s destination wasn’t known but she was wrapped up warm in a beige puffer jacket, pink and orange jumper and black trousers, so it might not be tropical climes she’s jetting off to. The TV star’s trip comes amid mounting speculation about her relationship with Brad.
The pair have been pretty much in each other’s pockets since September, when they were seen exiting the show A Play Is a Poem in LA. Then on 24 October, the friends enjoyed another play attending Mike Birbiglia’s one-man show The New One. Mid-November, they were spotted taking in an art exhibit at Wilding Cran Gallery, before being pictured at Kanye West’s opera show at the Hollywood Bowl last week.
Their close relationship has sparked romance rumours, especially after they were seen hugging and embracing at Kanye’s show, but sources insist they are just friends. An insider told People: ‘They were all in a VIP box. Brad was friendly with Alia, but it didn’t look romantic at all.’ Brad’s been living and loving his single life Another told the publication:
‘He just loves surrounding himself with good friends. Brad loves the art world. He has a large group of artist friends that he hangs out with. ‘Several are women, but he isn’t dating them.’ In the midst of the rumours, a previous interview of Alia’s has resurfaced from 2017, in which she reveals she is bisexual.
