After being together for 10 years, Angeline Jolie and Brad Pitt are calling it quits. Jolie filed for divorce on Monday citing irreconcilable differences and wants physical custody of all six of their children. Of course the tabloid media are throwing out several rumours over why Jolie filed for divorce and the most common allegations are that Pitt smokes too much marijuana and that he cheated on her with actress Marion Cotillard as well as Russian prostitutes.
Several sources say Jolie hired a private investigator to confirm her suspicions.
In a statement to PEOPLE magazine Pitt said
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he said in the statement. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
As for the allegations that Pitt was having an affair…rumours are that it’s Marion Cotillard, his co-star in the upcoming movie Allied.
And here the sources of the rumours.
“Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.
Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children.” [TMZ]
“Pitt, 52, had been rumored to have been cozying up to his “Allied’’ co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, for months during the pair’s filming of the World War II drama in London.
The PI discovered that Pitt was cheating on his wife of two years with Cotillard — while also partying like a single guy on a mission, the source said.” [Page Six]
