The actor and director Brad Pitt has confirmed that he is not in fact dating the Princess of Monaco, Charlotte Casiraghi.

According to reports, the 31-year-old princess and daughter of Grace Kelly was 'rumoured' to be romantically involved with the 51-year-old actor.

Pitt has publicly dismissed the rumour as,

Totally false.

It appears the rumour mill began spinning after it was reported in an Australian title New Idea that Princess Charlotte and Pitt had been spotted together at the Los Angeles' County Museum of Art..

New Idea quoted 'onlookers' at the museum, as saying Pitt appeared 'besotted'.

Pitt separated from his wife, and partner of 12 years, Angelina Jolie in 2016.

Jolie filed for divorce in the same year.

His life as a bachelor has prompted much speculation about various relationships.

In October it was reported that Pitt was dating 21-year-old Ella Purnell, who also co-starred in the Jolie Disney film Maleficent.

UniLad quotes a close friend of Purnell as calling the idea "Completely made up. They're not dating".
