Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reportedly are on the verge of divorcing amid claims of cheating on his part and excessive weight loss on hers. But how did the golden couple go from romance to rumors that their marriage is ruined, with Angelina experiencing a health crisis?
Pitt and Jolie are reported to have "explosive" fights, causing repeated problems in their relationship. The reason: Brad is rumored to be cheating on Angelina, according to OK! magazine's source via MSN.
"For a while, the excitement of getting married masked their troubles. But lately they've been having explosive fights. Neither of them is sure that they can, or should hang on anymore."
As for who the other woman is, Pitt reportedly is being unfaithful to Jolie with co-star Marion Cotillard. And those rumors are causing Angelina to feel stressed. The source also revealed that if Brad takes his flirting one step further and starts sleeping with Marion, Jolie will be "furious."
But OK! magazine's insider also claims that Pitt is upset with Angelina because of her risky lifestyle, alleging he feels frustrated that she won't try to get healthy and gain weight.
"[Jolie] barely eats, she guzzles wine every night and she smokes constantly. Brad is exhausted from spending so much energy trying to get her to take better care of herself."
In addition, although Brad says he has not cheated on her, he is described as "ready to pull the plug on their relationship over Angelina's irrational jealousy."
As for their six children, their future remains unknown.
Despite the rumors that Jolie and Pitt are having serious marriage problems, they still care for each other, according to a source cited by Design & Trend.
"It's sad because they do still really care about each other," shared the insider. "But it's looking like the only way out of the jealousy and misery is a divorce."
Jolie's "jealousy" has been caused by Brad's close relationship with Cotillard, who seems like a "breath of fresh air to him" in comparison to Angelina, according to that source.
The couple also are described as battling over which one should be the primary caretaker for the children while the other works as an actor or director. In addition, Design & Trend quotes a friend of Jolie who claims that the actress tends to isolate.
"Some of her issues force her to retreat into isolation and pull away from Brad and the kids. It is impossible to be entirely free from who she once was," explained the pal.
All of these concerns are taking their toll on Pitt.
"It can be really hard on him. He feels he has been more than patient with Angie, but his confidence in their happiness is wearing thin," added Jolie's friend.
As to what's at stake if they do split, Brad and Angelina (Brangelina) together have a net worth of $400 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Brad's net worth is $240 million, while Angelina has a net worth of $160 million.
The 52-year-old actor has more than 40 films to his credit, such as Ocean's Eleven and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Jolie starred in more than 30 movies, such as Girl, Interrupted and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
The couple began their relationship after working together in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005). Their six children include three adoptions (Maddox, Pax, and Zahara), while their three biological children are Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.
But despite a new report that Brad and Angelina are heading for a $400 million divorce, Gossip Cop says that the claims about the "practically emaciated" Jolie and cheating Pitt are "nonsense."
As for the allegations that Pitt is "overstepping bounds" with actress Marion Cotillard as they work on their movie together, a source close to Brangelina told Gossip Cop that the claims are not true.
However, although Angelina enjoys playing with her children, her weight loss has been a concern, according to OK!, which describes Jolie as "scary skinny" when she was recently seen with her daughter Vivienne.
Despite their fame, the 40-year-old mom of six attempts to enjoy activities such as playing on a scooter with her children. She also was spotted grocery shopping recently in Hollywood with her youngest child.
