Andra Day says the rumors claiming she is dating Brad Pitt are nothing more than a piece of Hollywood fiction.
The 36-year-old singer shut down the recent gossip that she and the 57-year-old Hollywood star had exchanged phone numbers at this year’s Oscars.
"Oh my gosh, child, especially because we've never met," Day responded. "So I was like, 'Oh, alright.' My sister actually hit me up after, she was like, 'You met Brad Pitt?' I said, 'I guess so. I guess we did.'"
"We're not dating. We don't even know each other. It is hilarious. It was thin air. Somebody was bored that day." she added.
After clearing the air their relationship status, she did speak highly of Pitt, “He's great, though, super talented, wonderful."
Sunday was a great night for Andra Day as she took home the Best Actress Award at the 2021 BET Awards for her role in The United States vs. Billie Holiday as Billie Holiday.
Speaking of the director she said, “It's our peers and our people, and I think especially with a movie like United States Vs. Billie Holliday, Lee [Daniels] really made the movie for us," Day said of the director. That's who was on set and that's who was in our hearts and in our minds when we made it. So for our peers to say, 'We love this. This is special to us,' it means everything."
