Brad Pitt’s girlfriend Nicole Poturalski is reportedly in an open marriage with her husband Roland.

While embarking on her new love affair with the Hollywood heartthrob, it’s understood the German model, 27, stayed married to her husband with whom she shares seven-year-old son Emil.

In fact, it’s claimed the Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood actor, 56, was first captivated by her beauty when he laid eyes on her at her husband’s restaurant in Berlin in August last year.

A friend of Nicole told MailOnline : “They are still married but you could describe their relationship as an “open marriage”.”

Roland Mary, 68, reportedly declined to comment to MailOnline on his wife’s new romance with the words: “No comment.”

It’s the first time Brad has fallen in love since his highly-publicised split from Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie in 2016.

That fateful night, Nicole was said to have slipped Brad her number.

“Brad Pitt first met Nicole [Poturalski] in August last year at Borchardt which is her husband Roland’s restaurant,” a friend of Nicole told the newspaper.

“Brad Pitt has been coming to Borchardt for years. He knows Roland [Mary] and Nicole was at the restaurant when he came to celebrate his new film.”

Mirror Online has reached out to Brad Pitt’s representatives for further comment.

Brad has been going to Roland’s restaurant Borchardt ever since he encountered it in 2009 when he was on location filming Inglorious Basterds.

Fight Club’s leading actor was there last August when he was promoting his latest movie Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood in Germany.

Weeks later it’s believe Nicole and Brad met again, this time in Los Angeles where she was doing a photoshoot.

As she travels a lot for work, the pair were able to meet.

Months later they were pictured at the Kanye West gig.

Fast forward nine months, they have now jetted off to the south of France together as an item.

It’s no wonder as Borchardt has an A-list guest list with a whole galaxy of stars dining there from George Clooney to Madonna.

US President Barack Obama and German leader Angela Merkel have been spied there.
