Natalie’s divorce news follows reports of her husband allegedly having an extramarital affair. Days before the announced split, Natalie was photographed without her wedding ring as she returned to Australia on August 4. Earlier in the summer, Natalie was seen wiping away tears on a bench while at a park with Benjamin and their kids. The emotional pictures of the Star Wars actress came out days after Benjamin went by himself to the Pathe theater in Paris for a screening of his directorial debut film, Carmen. Natalie also enjoyed an outing without her spouse at the French Open on June 7, where she was all smiles.

The French outlet, Voici, reported on Benjamin’s alleged extramarital affair on June 2. Shortly after the news spread, a source told PEOPLE that the affair was “short-lived” and that Benjamin and Natalie “remain” together. “He knows he made an enormous mistake and he is doing all he can to get Natalie to forgive him and keep their family together,” the insider said. “Natalie is incredibly private and has no intention of playing this out in the media. Her biggest priority is protecting her children and their privacy.”

Another insider reported to Page Six that the French director’s alleged affair was with a 25-year-old climate activist. “[Benajmin and Natalie] have not split and are trying to work things out. Ben is doing everything he can to get Natalie to forgive him,” the source added. “He loves her and their family.” The Thor: Love & Thunder actress and her husband were seen together in Paris just days before the first report surfaced of Benjamin’s alleged affair.
