Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after allegedly learning he was cheating on her with his new co-star, the New York Post is reporting.
“She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw,’’ a source told the newspaper.
Pitt, 52, had been rumoured to be cosying up with his ‘Allied’ co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, for a few months during the filming of the World War II drama in London.
The PI that Jolie hired, discovered that Pitt was cheating on his wife of two years with Cotillard, while also partying like a single guy.
“The atmosphere [off-set] was full of hard drugs and Russian hookers, and Angie was told Brad got caught up in it,’’ the source said.
“He’s in the throes of some insane midlife crisis, and Angie is fed up.”
However, a source close to Cotillard has denied the Pitt rumours and insisted she is still with her long-term partner, French actor and director Guillaume Canet.
“They are still very much together. They have been a couple since 2007 and have one child but have never married,’’ the source said of Cotillard and Canet.
Jolie filed for divorce citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ in the marriage, it appears they broke up on Thursday.
