Brad Pitt, Lykke Li just 'artsy friends' despite romance rumors: report

In recent days, speculation had surfaced that the 58-year-old actor and 35-year-old singer had begun a relationship, but a source recently cleared the air, disclosing that the relationship between the two is purely platonic.

An insider told People magazine that the “Little Bit” singer is a member of “a large group of artsy friends that [Pitt] enjoys hanging out with.”

Actress Alia Shawkat is another member of this group, said the source. Reps for Pitt and Li did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
