Brad Pitt’s ex Nicole Poturalski looks glum but is ‘hanging in there’ after split as Angelina Jolie custody war heats up

Brad Pitt's ex Nicole Poturalski looks glum after saying she's "hanging in there" following their split as his custody war with Angelina Jolie heats up.

The 27-year-old model took to Instagram again on Friday looking a miserable after assuring her followers that she was coping with their break up.

Nicole shared the stunning picture of her posing "casually by the lake" in Berlin today, which has gone into a four-week shutdown due to coronavirus.

Earlier, the model treated herself to a brow lamination treatment, which she posted to her IG Stories and later, began carving pumpkins.

Nicole was quick to post on social media after the relationship with with Brad ended, sharing two intimate pictures of her in the sunlight on a bed.

"Hang in there just for a little bit longer..." she captioned the sultry snap taken in Germany, after sharing another telling message on social media.

"I flirt with life..over and over again..." Nicole  wrote alongside a picture of a By Far handbag on Tuesday.

The Bergkamen beauty is reportedly in an open marriage with restaurateur Roland Mary, 68, the pair share seven-year-old son Emil.

However, less than two months later, an insider told ET that the pair were done. 

She and Brad called it quits as the 56-year-old actor continues to battle his ex-wife Angelina in court for custody of the former couple’s six children. 

Rumors first began to swirl in August that Nicole and the Hollywood hunk were an item after they were seen boarding a private jet together. 

However, less than two months later, a source told ET that although "something" was going on between the pair, neither of them took the relationship seriously and decided to end it.

Brad and his model ex first met at a party in her native Berlin last year, following the premiere of his movie "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood."

They reportedly got together multiple times in Los Angeles and France, including a Kanye West concert in LA last year.

Former power couple Brad and Angelina split in September 2016 after two years of marriage.

The exes are currently fighting over custody of five of their six kids.

"Brangelina" share children Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

But now, Brad is "fighting to get overnight visits with his kids for the holidays" during the nasty custody war, reports claimed.

The estranged pair have been battling in court since the actress filed for divorce and they are set to meet before a judge in November.

Their custody battle is set to be one of the most expensive and drawn-out legal fights in Hollywood history.

Brad called 21 witnesses to support his case, while Angelina only brought in seven.

An insider, who is close to both parties, exclusively told The Sun: "The kids have been shielded to a large extent, but they’re old enough to have a pretty strong sense of what’s going on.

"It breaks Brad’s heart to know they’ve been at the centre of this wretched battle for such a long time."
