The insider source had the following to say about the two:

“Brad was crushing on Emily at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar party. They weren’t in a private area or anything like that, but they did talk with friends around. Obviously, she was off-limits back then. She was happily married, and Brad respected that.

Furthermore, the source substantiated that the Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood actor was the first to make a move, with the supermodel showing acceptance; Ratajkowski, reportedly, always found the actor “cute”, and as stated by the source, “The way she saw it, what did she have to lose?”

When it comes to the legal issues the ex-couple have been battling out, things haven’t been the most pleasant for either. Jolie and Pitt, who met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, started dating around the year 2005. It was in 2014 that the two tied the knot at their destination wedding. However, just within 2 years, Angelina Jolie opted for a divorce. The reason, as cited, was the  “irreconcilable differences” shared between the two. Jolie also asked for the custody of their six kids, while allowing Pitt visitation rights. Since then, the two have butted heads surrounding the custody matter.

This year, in 2022, the two specifically clashed over the matter of their shared vineyard venture, Château Miraval, where Jolie reportedly sold her stake in the business to, apparently, a “stranger.” Brad Pitt sued the actress over this. Further chaos ensued when FBI documentation regarding the 2016 plane incident, which led to the divorce filing, was obtained. Since then, much has surfaced about the two and their private matters.

It is yet to see the ultimate conclusion to such a high-profile legal feud. As for now, Brad Pitt seems to be reportedly involved with Ratajkowski, seemingly carrying on with his rollercoaster life.
