Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been facing rumors of an impending divorce for the last few months, and in the latest report regarding Pitt’s marriage to Jolie, the 52-year-old actor is accused of cheating on his “sick wife” with his Five Seconds of Silence co-star Marion Cotillard.
On May 13, News Everyday shared news of Brad Pitt’s alleged affair with Cotillard, claiming Pitt was getting flirty with Cotillard behind the back of his “sick wife,” who reportedly weighs just 79 pounds due to stress from her husband’s possible infidelity.
“It is visible not just through their chemistry on [set] but they, apparently, also have cute nicknames for one another,” the report claimed.

Brad Pitt is currently living in London, where he is filming both Five Seconds of Silence and Allied.
According to the report, Jolie is aware of Brad Pitt’s indiscretions but has yet to do anything about his relationship with Cotillard. Instead, claimed the source, the actress has forbidden her husband from hanging out with Ben Affleck, who she feels is a bad influence on her man.
Last year, Affleck was accused of having an affair with his nanny, Christine Ouzounian, during his marriage to Jennifer Garner, the mother of his three children. While the couple has been seen together in recent weeks in Europe, their marriage appears to be over.
“Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck are known to be good friends with each other. As a matter of fact, they have been spotted hanging out in bars for several times already,” the Parent Herald reported on May 10. “Angelina Jolie must be feeling threatened that Ben Affleck will badly influence Brad Pitt and instill negative thoughts in his mind.”

News of a possible divorce between Brad Pitt and Jolie began in March, when an insider claimed the mother of six had grown jealous of Brad Pitt’s relationship with Cotillard, as well as the actress’ accomplishments in the world of entertainment.
“The resentment has been eating away at Angelina,” an insider revealed to In Touch Weekly in March, according to a report by Hollywood Life. “She’s prone to think that since she was once Brad’s co-star and seduced him away from his wife, the same will happen to her… She’s exactly the kind of sultry European actress that Angie has always wanted to be and she’s playing exactly the kind of role Angie’s always wanted to play. Adding to the jealousy is the fact that Marion has one thing Angelina hasn’t achieved in her acting career: Oscar for Best Actress.”
Because of Jolie’s jealousy, her husband, Brad Pitt, had grown frustrated with their relationship and was ready to call it quits.
“[Brad Pitt] will be the one to file,” the source continued. “He’s fed up with her controlling ways, her obstinateness when it comes to listening to him about her health issues and how she needs to slow down and now her outright jealousy when it comes to other women.”
Brad Pitt and Jolie fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. One month after Aniston filed for divorce, the couple went public with their romance in Kenya with Jolie’s oldest adopted son, Maddox.
Brad Pitt was also recently accused of cheating on Jolie with his Allied co-star Lizzy Caplan, who he was allegedly “caught kissing” on set. However, according to a report by Gossip Cop on May 9, Brad Pitt and Caplan’s kiss was only a peck on the cheek and shot during production on their movie, which features the pair playing a brother and sister.
