The insider said Khalsa, 50, “is earthy,” and much more low-maintenance that Pitt’s former loves.
Since his breakup from Jolie, 44, Pitt has been laying low, focusing on his career and on spending time with his children. After wrapping up his nasty custody battle with Jolie, the actor was thought to be dating MIT professor Neri Oxman, but those rumors were squashed when Oxman, 43, married American investor Bill Ackman and had a child with him this year.
Now, it seems Pitt has finally entered the dating pool and found happiness with Khalsa.
“She’s very strong,” the source told Us Weekly, “and has a beautiful mind. That’s what he’s attracted to.”
The two first sparked hookup rumors a year ago, when they were photographed at the Silverlake Conservatory of Music Gala, an annual benefit thrown by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That day, they were caught on camera laughing and chatting while sitting next to each other.
Though their budding romance is going strong, Pitt’s not ready to make things serious just yet.
“Brad’s not in that mind-set,” said the source, but still, “Sat is very special to him and someone he enjoys spending time with.”
