Say what?! Ellen DeGeneres dropped a bombshell on her September 12 show that she dated one of Brad Pitt’s ex-girlfriends.

When the two A-listers were recalling the day they first met at singer Melissa Etheridge’s pool party, the 55-year-old said that at the time Ellen, 61, was making eyes at the lady on his arm. “Was I hitting on your girlfriend, really?” Ellen asked. “I think so,” Brad responded. “I was flattered.”

“I actually sense that I have dated another one of your girlfriends,” the comedienne added. “We’ll talk about that later.” Brad laughed, “After the show.”

We all know that Brad has a tumultuous history with his famous exes. Brad split from Angelina Jolie back in 2016 after two years of marriage and more than 10 years together. The divorce was definitely not easy on their six children — Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Maddox recently spoke on his strained relationship with his father in an exclusive interview obtained by In Touch. “Whatever happens, happens,” the college freshman said of his private drama with his daddy. When asked if his father will be visiting him at Yonsei University in Incheon, South Korea, Maddox stated, “Um, I don’t know about that … what’s happening.”

As we saw, Brad did not join his ex-wife, 44, to help move Maddox into college. A source told Us Weekly of Brad’s absence at the milestone that, “Brad hasn’t been spending much time with Maddox lately,” adding, “Maddox doesn’t really see himself as Brad’s son.”

Unfortunately, sources say that Maddox may never see eye-to-eye with his father after an altercation took place on a private plane back in 2016. “All the kids are close to Brad apart from Maddox who keeps his distance — he’s never really gotten over the whole flight incident and is so protective of his mom,” a source exclusively told In Touch. “Despite Brad’s attempts to make amends, their relationship sadly won’t ever be the same.”
