Brad Pitt and Ines de Ramon’s Relationship Timeline
Brad Pitt has been dating jewelry designer Ines de Ramon since late 2022.
The Babylon actor was linked to several women after his divorce from Angelina Jolie in September 2016, including Emily Ratajkowski and Nicole Poturalski. And though stars like Martha Stewart, Regina Hall and Quinta Brunson have publicly thirsted over the Oscar winner, Pitt has a “good thing going” with de Ramon at the moment.
Pitt and de Ramon were first spotted together in November 2022, and sources told PEOPLE at the time that they’d actually been dating for “a few months” before that.
De Ramon and her ex-husband, The Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley, quietly separated in May 2022 after three years of marriage. The jewelry designer reportedly met Pitt through a mutual friend, and they hit it off well enough that Pitt’s brought her to several events, though they’ve yet to walk a red carpet together.
The romance comes after what Pitt described as a period of self-reflection following his divorce from Jolie, which led him to find another love: sculpting.
“I was looking at my own life and really concentrating on owning my own s—: where was I complicit in failures in my relationships, where have I misstepped,” he told The Financial Times of his new passion in October 2022. “For me, it was born out of ownership of what I call a radical inventory of self, getting really brutally honest with me, and taking account of those I may have hurt.”
Not long after he revealed his new passion, Pitt was spotted out with de Ramon for the first time — though according to a PEOPLE source, the pair had been dating “for a few months” before then. From their first concert outing to their New Year’s getaway, here’s everything to know about Brad Pitt and Ines de Ramon’s relationship so far.
