Brad Pitt has been linked to Swedish singer Lykke Like.
Rumors began to swirl on Wednesday that Brad, 58, and Lykke, 35, have been ‘secretly dating’ despite the pair not being pictured together.
DailyMail.com has reached out reps for both Brad and Lykke for comment.
Speculation was amplified by the popular Instagram gossip page Deuxmoi, which claimed the duo were ‘just friends.’
However, a report in The Sun has linked the pair and claimed Lykke lives three minutes’ drive from him, making the rumored romance easier to keep secret.

‘Brad and Lykke have been able to fly under the radar so easily because they’re neighbors,’ an insider alleged.
‘It’s worked out perfectly for Brad, to have someone he likes living so close, so he can be under the radar,’ the source claimed.
The report also alleged that the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood heartthrob began spending time with Lykke in mid-2021.
Brad’s love life has attracted a storm of rumors, which in the past have linked him to such names as Israeli professor Neri Oxman and German model Nicole Poturalski.

At the moment he is still entangled in a custody battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, who first filed for divorce from him in 2016.
They still live near each other in Los Feliz, where he keeps a sprawling compound that he expanded from a house he initially bought in the 1990s.
Meanwhile Angelina lives in Cecil B DeMille’s former home with her and Brad’s children Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and Knox and Vivienne, 13.
‘I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away,’ she told British Vogue last year when explaining why she bought the home.

Lykke is rumored to live in a nearby house purchased in 2018 under a trust in the name of her ex Jeff Bhasker, according to The Sun.
She and Jeff welcomed their son Dion, five, just three weeks before Lykke’s mother died, a tumultuous period that inspired her album So Sad So Sexy.
Angelina is herself in the midst of a swirl of romance rumors with The Weeknd, who fueled the conjecture with a lyric on his new album: ‘My new girl’s a movie star.’
This past October saw Angelina score a win in the ‘Brangelina’ custody battle, which was previously thought to be winding down.

A private judge was disqualified from the custody battle last June for ‘failure to make mandatory disclosures’ about his business ties to Brad’s counsel.
The appellate court decision to disqualify that judge effectively voided his previous ruling giving Brad more time with his five minor children.
Brad appealed the disqualification, but this past October the California Supreme Court denied a review of the June decision.

A representative for Brad insisted in a statement that the October ruling ‘does not change the extraordinary amount of factual evidence which led the trial judge – and the many experts who testified – to reach their clear conclusion about what is in the children’s best interests.’
‘Ms. Jolie is focused on her family and pleased that her children’s wellbeing will not be guided by unethical behavior,’ a lawyer for Angelina said in an email.
Brad’s legal team has contended in the past that Angelina was only trying to get the judge disqualified in order to nullify the decision he made in Brad’s favor.
