Actress Angelina Jolie is reportedly dating Cambodian lyricist and filmmaker PraCh Ly, nearly a year and a half after announcing her separation from her husband of two years, actor Brad Pitt.
"They're a perfect match. Their connection is becoming stronger by the day. It's just what Angie needs. Angie hasn't let anyone new into her life in a long time, but when she falls, she falls hard," okmagazine.com quoted a source as saying.
The couple was introduced to each other by their mutual friend Loung Ung, when the "Maleficent" star was in Cambodia to film "First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers", based on Loung's novel.
Ly has also been reportedly spending time with Jolie's children at her Los Feliz estate, apart from touring temples and markets in the Cambodia Town section of Long Beach.
The rumours arise a year after Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt filed for divorce in September 2016.
"She isn't dating anyone and won't be for a very long time. She is focused on her children and their needs," People quoted the source as saying, who also added that the two are just friends and that the Cambodian filmmaker is a fan of Angelina's work.
Angelina and PraCh Ly have also been spotted attending the same events during the film's promotions in Cambodia, and Loung Ung was also there. Some gossip columns also reported that PraCh Ly has bonded well with Angelina's eldest son Maddox (who is of Cambodian origin) already.
Apart from Maddox, 16, Angelina and Brad are parents to Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox (the youngest three are their biological kids), all of who stay in Jolie's Malibu residence.
