The whole world was shocked when one of the most influential couples in Hollywood decided to call it quits. The powerhouse couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, has come a very long way from Pitt’s controversial split-up with actress Jennifer Aniston to the couple’s marriage in 2014. The news about the Brangelina divorce started Tuesday morning.
For 12 years, the couple’s presence and seemingly perfect romance were felt not just in Hollywood but around the world. So what could have possibly gone wrong? Rumors have been circulating like wildfire on what could have caused Jolie to file for a divorce.
The biggest speculations so far have something to do with Pitt’s cheating. According to Mirror, claims say that Jolie hired a private investigator to spy on Pitt on the set of his new film. Rumors say that Pitt’s closeness with French actress Marion Cottilard drove Jolie to spy on the actor.
The 40-year old Cottilard is married to fellow actor Guillaume Canet in 2007. She has yet to respond to the claims.
“Marion and Guillaume are blissfully happy, and these kind of claims are not what Marion wants to be hearing,” said a source close to Marion’s family in her home city of Paris.
“She guards her private life, and wants to enjoy more of it,” said the source. “All this fuss will be a huge shock to her.”
Meanwhile, another flavor that adds to the rumors is that Pitt is still in love with actress Gwyneth Paltrow. In an article posted by Inquistr, rumors say that while Jolie allegedly tried to wake Pitt from his half-sleep and drunken state, Pitt reportedly referred to his wife as Gwyneth Paltrow.
Paltrow and Pitt had initially met in 1995 where they worked together on the film Seven. The pair dated for 3 years and were once engaged but didn’t marry. Pitt later on married Jennifer Aniston.
