According to People magazine, Brad Pitt and his very good friend Alia Shawkat, were recently seen together in a VIP box at the Hollywood Bowl to hear Brad’s other good friend Kanye West perform his Bible-inspired opera.
Kanye’s opera, titled Nebuchadnezzar, premiered at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night. And sources tell People that Brad – who is a fan of Kanye’s Sunday Services – was there with several of his friends. Emphasis on friends.
A source close to Pitt tells People the actor and the Arrested Development actress “are just friends – absolutely nothing romantic is going on.” Another source tells People Pitt “was with a group of people, including Alia” at West’s show over the weekend. “They were all in a VIP box. Brad was friendly with Alia, but it didn’t look romantic at all,” the source says.
Brad and Alia bonded over their mutual love of visual art. So it makes sense that they’d both want to see Kanye’s opera, which is the latest act in Kanye’s current long-term performance art piece as a Evangelical-style scammer. People’s source claims that Brad and Alia were in the same VIP booth, but that they were surrounded by other people in one big, happy friend group. There’s pictures from Sunday evening’s show, and Brad and Alia appear to have been sitting together:

I’m not sure what to believe here. Brad and Alia might be dating – that certainly looks like it could be a date. But they could also legitimately be friends. If that’s the truth, then I just know that all this repetitive talk about being good friends has got to be hurting Leonardo DiCaprio. There was a time not that long ago that Leo was Brad’s best, most coolest younger famous friend. And now that Brad has found someone even younger and way cooler, Leo isn’t getting invited to all the cool operas and hip art gallery openings. Poor Leo might have just realized what it’s like to get dumped for aging out.
