Brad Pitt is over the moon about his new love, Neri Oxman — and RadarOnline.com learned exclusively ex Angelina Jolie is so furious over the relationship she could use it as bait to get custody of their kids!
While a friend of the pair insisted the relationship between Brad, 54, and the Boston-based MIT professor, 42, is platonic, insiders close to Neri — a successful professor and architect — confirmed the hush-hush relationship!
“He’s so attracted to her and he’s telling pals she’s the sexiest woman he’s ever met,” spilled an insider.
“In fact, he admits to the same pals that Neri might be TOO good for him. She’s so smart and he’s a little intimidated by that.
“He worries he won’t be able to keep up with her in conversation, so he’s feverishly brushing up on design and architecture to impress her,” continued the source, adding that Brad believes she could be his next wife!
Meanwhile, Brad’s closest advisers think his romance with Neri could cost him in court with his manipulative ex, Angelina Jolie!
“Brad’s team is extremely concerned how Angie will react now that he’s openly seeing another woman,” an insider revealed.
“After her unfounded claims that he was a child abuser, they know how vindictive she can be!”
In fact, Brad’s aides were so worried, they begged him to put the relationship on hold until Angie signed off on a divorce agreement and custody of their six children!
Brad, who divorced first wife Jennifer Aniston in 2005, refused the requests, saying he had no intentions of “putting his life on hold” and “letting his ex use their kids as pawns in the divorce negotiations.”
“Brad is taking a stand, but Angie is unpredictable — and there is serious concern that all the progress they made in the custody negotiations will go down the drain because of her fury over his new relationship,” our tipster tattled.
“Now Brad’s advisers fear this will take things to another level.”
Moles inside Brad’s camp know Angie is obsessed with her public image — going so far as to hire a crisis management team after blindsiding Brad with Hollywood’s most shocking divorce.
The fear, according to insiders, is that she won’t let Brad’s new relationship go on without an extreme response!
Added one Radar snitch: “Brad’s team is absolutely terrified of what Angie will do now that Brad has found love first.”
