Marion Cotillard Steps Out In Paris After Brad Pitt Affair Rumors

Marion Cotillard stepped out in Paris over the weekend.

After being accused of being the “other woman” involved in the end of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s marriage, the French actress stepped out in her home country in a pair of baggy pink pants and a grey sweatshirt.

“Just days after reports claimed Angelina Jolie exploded over Brad Pitt’s rumored affair with Allied co-star Marion Cotillard,” the pregnant actress was caught by photographers. According to the September 24 report by Radar Online, Cotillard looked content as she strolled the streets with her cell phone in hand just days after confirming she and boyfriend Guillaume Canet are expecting their second child together.

Last week, after news of Jolie’s divorce filing hit the web, a Page Six report claimed Jolie had done so after catching Pitt cheating on her with Cotillard. As a source explained, Jolie allegedly hired a private investigator after suspecting Pitt was being unfaithful.

“[Jolie] hired a private eye because she felt that [Pitt] was fooling around with [Cotillard] on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw,” the source said.

The report noted that Pitt, 52, had been facing rumors of an on-set affair with Marion Cotillard, 40, for months as they filmed their World War II drama in London.

During his investigation, the PI reportedly discovered that Pitt was not only cheating on his wife with Marion Cotillard, but also “partying like a single guy on a mission,” the source said.

“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.”

Just one day after Jolie’s divorce filing was confirmed, Marion Cotillard, whose pregnancy was announced around the same time, confirmed that she was not involved in their split with a post to her fans and followers on Instagram.

“This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into,” she wrote on September 21. “I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.

“Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn’t distressing.”

Marion Cotillard’s pregnancy news hit the web on the heels of Jolie’s divorce announcement on September 20 and quickly led to even more rumors of a Brad Pitt affair — and reports which claimed Cotillard’s baby may be Pitt’s. According to a report by X17 Online, Marion Cotillard could have been keeping her pregnancy a secret from fans because of the child’s potentially scandalous paternity.

The X17 Online report also revealed that Jolie was always concerned about the possibility of Pitt engaging in an on-set affair with one of his co-stars because they fell in love on set while Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston. The outlet also revealed that Jolie was haunted by the intense sex scenes between Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in their film.
