Was jealousy a major cause of Brangelina’s split? As Brad Pitt filmed ‘Allied’ with Marion Cotillard, Angelina Jolie couldn’t help feeling like he was becoming ‘infatuated’ with his co-star and detaching himself from his wife, according to a new report. Get the alleged details right here!
Even before Brad, 52, got involved with Allied, Angelina, 41, apparently never trusted Brad because of her insecurity that had resulted from getting romantically involved with men who were cheating with her. (Let’s not forget that Brad was one of them, as he was married to Jennifer Aniston when he and Angelina hit it off on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004.) Because of this, Brad and Angelina made a rule to not be in any movies that include kissing a co-star, a source revealed to InTouch. So when Brad signed on to Allied — which involves plenty of kissing with Marion Cotillard, according to the steamy trailer — Angelina’s suspicion began.
“Angelina was very jealous,” another InTouch source added. “[She] thought Brad was infatuated with Marion because he would talk so highly of her.”
Angelina got so hung up on the idea that Brad was fooling around with Marion, 40, that she even hired a private investigator, as she was extremely suspicious that he was cheating and partying a lot on set. News ironically happened to break that Marion was expecting her second child just as Angelina filed for divorce, which definitely didn’t lessen the cheating speculation. As it turns out, though, all of Angelina’s suspicions were for nothing. In fact, Marion set the record straight herself!
In a statement the French actress issued on her personal Instagram, Marion declared that the baby was not Brad’s, nor did she ever get involved with him while filming Allied. “Many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting,” she wrote. “He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”
Angelina’s suspicion of cheating and Brad’s “infatuation” with Marion seemingly wasn’t what ultimately ended their marriage, as it has been reported that Brad’s treatment of the kids was what made Angelina pull the plug. But from the sounds of it, her speculation certainly helped nothing in repairing the marriage that is coming to a rather tumultuous end.
