Brad Pitt ‘splits’ with swimsuit model girlfriend Nicole Poturalski as his custody war with Angelina Jolie rages on

BRAD Pitt has reportedly split from his girlfriend, Nicole Poturalski, after just a few months of dating the swimsuit model.

The 56-year-old’s latest breakup comes as he continues to battle his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, in court for custody of the former couple’s six children. 

Rumors first began to swirl that the attractive pair were a hot new item in August after they were seen boarding a private jet together. 

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

While the insider told the outlet that "something" was going on between the pair, neither person took the relationship seriously and they've called it quits.

Brad and Nicole first met at a party in Berlin last year following the premiere of his movie Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood.

A source then revealed the pair got together multiple times in Los Angeles and France.

Nicole is reportedly in an open marriage with restaurateur Roland Mary, 68.

She shares seven-year-old son Emil with Ronald.

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.

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

It was reported just weeks ago that Brad is "fighting to get overnight visits with his kids for the holidays" during the nasty custody war.

Brad and Angelina, 45, 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 as 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 and it breaks Brad’s heart to know they’ve been at the centre of this wretched battle for such a long time.

"Angelina is still the ultimate mama bear who insists she’ll walk through fire to protect them from anyone — even their own father — and she’s proud of the strength and maturity the kids have shown throughout this nightmare process.

"There’s been a hell of a lot of finger pointing and sniping from each of their respective camps for months now, ever since it became clear they weren’t going to be able to compromise face to face.

"Now the communication between Brad and Angie is virtually non-existent, and they’re both digging in harder than they’ve ever done before."
