So the Brangelina drama continues…
Shortly after the news about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce broke, rumours of the actor cheating on his wife spread like wildfire. But who can blame them? Pitt allegedly cheated on former wife Jennifer Aniston to be with Jolie a decade ago.
The suspect: French actress Marion Cotillard, Pitt’s “Allied” co-star.
But Cotillard, who is in a long term relationship with French actor and director Guillaume Canet, will take nothing of it. Earlier today (22nd September), the Oscar-winning actress took to Instagram to shut down rumours about being “the other woman”.
Writing in both English and French, her statement reads:
“This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiralling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.
Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn’t distressing.
And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery.
Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment.
With all my love, Marion.”
In other news, Cotillard just announced her 2nd pregnancy! Congratulations to the couple :)
Brangelina first fell in love with each other during the filming of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2005 and in 2006, Jolie confirmed that she was pregnant with Pitt’s child. Dubbed as Hollywood’s golden couple, the 2 had 6 children together – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.
We don’t know what the future holds for them but our hearts are certainly broken :(
