The Swede, who at 35 is Brad’s junior by 23, lives a short drive from his sprawling mansion in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.

They are believed to have been together since the summer but managed to stay out of the headlines.

A source told The Sun: “Brad and Lykke have been able to fly under the radar so easily because they’re neighbours. It’s worked out perfectly for Brad to have someone he loves living so close.

Lykke, who once joked that she was in therapy for her “romance”, was seen with Brad at Hollywood restaurant Mother Wolf last week.

A separate source confirmed to The Sun: “They were having dinner together.”

It’s been over five years since Brad and Angelina separated.

But the couple once celebrated as the “Brangelina” golden couple remain embroiled in an acrimonious divorce.

Angelina, 46, also lives nearby with the couple’s six children.

But unlike her and Brad’s multi-million dollar resorts – Brad is four properties turned into one – Lykke shares a more modest two-bedroom, £1.3m home with her son Dion, who will have six years next month.

The singer talked about getting high there making “little pieces of mushrooms” and looking at her garden.

Despite the age gap – Lykke was starting elementary school while Brad had fans swooning in 1991’s Thelma And Louise – the pair have common ground.

Both have experienced turmoil in their private lives.

Lykke lost her mother in 2017. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor three weeks after Lykke gave birth to her son.

The singer said: “This whole year has been really crazy. You’re going to have your baby and then you find out your mom is going to die.

Her relationship with Dion’s father, music producer Jeff Bhasker, 47, descended into such drama while they were working on the 2018 album So Sad, So Sexy that she “ran away from the studio crying every days”.

Lykke revealed: “It was a great show for everyone. They’re going to have tons of stories to tell. My new manager said we were the craziest – and he manages (controversial Hole singer) Courtney Love.

“I ran away from the studio crying every day”

The couple separated before the release of the album.

Lykke said: “I’m good at relationships, but not at relationships. That’s why I’m still in deep therapy. I suffer from romance.

Brad, 58, is still in a bitter custody battle with Angelina for their adopted children Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, and Zahara, 17, and their three biological children – Shiloh, 15, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 13 years old. .

After the split, it was claimed there was an argument between the actor and Maddox on a private jet. Following the incident, Los Angeles Family Services cleared Brad of child abuse allegations.

Brad and Lykke’s backgrounds could hardly be more different. He grew up in the US state of Missouri – “the country of Mark Twain” – before studying for a degree and moving to Los Angeles to become an actor.

Lykke, the daughter of musician Johan Zachrisson and singer-turned-photographer Karsti Stiege, had a more nomadic upbringing.

She studied at 11 different schools and lived on the mountainside in Portugal for five years, also passing through the Portuguese capital Lisbon, Morocco, Nepal and India.

She went to therapy for what she calls her “difficult childhood” and said, “I’m still sick of it. It could take me another 35 years to be somewhat normal.

When she was young, she fell in love with dancing after watching the videos of pop icons Madonna and Michael Jackson.

But she dropped out of dance school at 15. Despite being called “deaf” by a school music teacher, Lykke decided her future lay in singing and songwriting.

She insisted: “Barely, I can sing – even now. Barely.” Lykke moved to New York City at 19, spending his time at open-mic parties and clubs.

It was a chance to be freed from what she saw as the pedestrian pace of life in her home country.

She said: “In Sweden everyone is white, they’re good looking, they’re tall, they have money, they have nice jobs from nine to five, they have a good steak for dinner, they have a quick fuck then they fall asleep.

Lykke revealed in 2018 that she had lost three friends to suicide in Sweden the previous year. She returned to Sweden at 21 and worked as a carer in a retirement home until Bjorn Yttling – of indie band Peter Bjorn & John – offered to produce her debut album, Youth Novels.

“Every day has been happier since”

Fellow Swedish pop star Robyn was an early fan, while a chance encounter with Rihanna at a party led the Umbrella singer to ask Lykke to support her on tour.

Lykke said, “I had a very low-cut top and she was like, ‘Oh look at you with your t*tties! I feel like we had some kind of connection.

But in 2015, while touring her third album, I Never Learn, Lykke canceled a series of tour dates in Australia and New Zealand for health reasons, including the slot with Rihanna.

She said: “I had been on a seven year cycle of albums, tours, heartbreaks, trying to grow. All I wanted was to be in my fucking bed.

Despite four hit albums — and working with Mark Ronson, Kanye West and Drake — Lykke suffered such nerves while promoting So Sad, So Sexy that to cope, she swallowed strong-minded mezcal.

She said: “I don’t remember anything except having panic attacks.”

Brad quit drinking and started going to AA meetings following his separation from Angelina.

Two years ago he thanked fellow A-list actor Bradley Cooper for helping him get sober, adding: “Every day has been happier since.”

The gossip site Deuxmoi was the first to report that rumors were circulating in his native Sweden about Lykke and Brad.

Then last week it was reported that a tipster had seen the pair at the celebrity haunt Mother Wolf.

In December, a source told US Weekly magazine that Brad was ready to “find that special someone to stay with for the long haul” but that he “hates the process and the fact that he can’t even go out for a coffee. friendly without being chattered”. on”.

Brad has been linked to another woman since the split from Angelina, German model Nicole Poturalski, 29.

They met at a Berlin premiere for his 2019 film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and dated for about a year.

But with Nicole apparently in an “open marriage” and living thousands of miles away, an insider told People magazine in October 2020, “It was never a relationship. It was a laid back adventure.

Fans were hoping that in 2020 there could be a reconciliation between Brad and his first wife, Friends’ Jennifer Aniston, after photos emerged of the pair kissing at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Angelina is believed to be dating 31-year-old Canadian singer The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye. They have been spotted together several times.

The Grammy winner fueled rumors this month by singing on a track from his new album Dawn FM: “My new girl, she’s a movie star.”
