Brad Pitt is reportedly keeping his dating relationship with Charlize Theron as quiet as possible so as not to anger his ex Angelina Jolie. It confirms what RadarOnline.com told you first!
Pitt's ex-bodyguard Kris Herzog gave an explosive interview to the Sun on Sunday, and said of the actor and Theron, "At the minimum, they’re friends with benefits." But Herzog believes Pitt's fear of Jolie during their custody situation has caused him to tread carefully in his new relationship with the blonde beauty.
It's been reported that Pitt and Theron looked like they were an item together at a private house in Beverly Hills. Herzog confirmed to the Sun on Sunday the report that Theron's ex, Sean Penn, set her up with Pitt.
"I spoke to Charlize about four months ago and she told me Sean Penn had introduced them," Herzog said. "I know as a fact they’ve been together for the last four months," Pitt's former protector noted. "I’ve seen them once myself together. They’re definitely dating but they’re keeping it secret until they work out whether it’s going to be long-term."
Herzog, owner of The Bodyguard Group of Beverly Hills, also claimed that Pitt has tried to hide his romance with Theron from estranged ex-wife Jolie. As Radar readers know, Pitt and Jolie have fought a bitter divorce battle for more than two years. But they recently came to a delicate child custody agreement.
Pitt desperately wants to see his six kids and is loathe to cause tension with Jolie, Herzog has claimed.
"Everything Brad does is vetted through how it’s going to affect his relationship with Angelina," Herzog alleged. "Because if he p***es her off, it’s going to f*** up their child custody situation." Herzog's interview comes on the heels of Radar sources previously saying that Pitt fears Jolie's wrath.
The actor and Theron are "trying their best to keep their relationship a secret to avoid drama with Angie." Theron already has a claimed ongoing feud with Jolie over film roles, as Radar reported.
It's assumed that A Listers Pitt and Theron are connecting over many things, including both having adopted children.
