With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j’aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n’ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d’absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j’aime, je me dois de m’exprimer. Pour commencer, j’ai rencontré il y a quelques années l’homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd’hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j’ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d’inventions aberrantes ne m’affectent en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la “presse”, à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j’ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion
The statement comes after an unknown source (pundits believe hired publicists on behalf of Jolie) told pagesix that Brad Pitt’s embittered wife hired a private detective only to allegedly discover that her husband of two years was in the midst of an affair with her 52 year old husband of two years.
The pair had been an item since 2004 after Pitt left his then wife, Jennifer Aniston to be with Jolie whom he met while filming spy thriller, ‘Mr and Mrs Smith.’
Innuendo of cheating comes in part to the Pitt and Jolie having spent increasingly less time with each other over the last year, with the actor pursuing acting projects and other passions outside of the couple’s reportedly ‘staid’ Hollywood, Los Angeles domestic existence.
But increasingly suggestion of impropriety also came with Cotillard and Pitt’s steamy onscreen chemistry in the upcoming spy thriller, Allied.
The actors are alleged to have an almost immediate ‘electric’ connection claims the film’s producer, Graham King.
Told King via People Magazine back in August: ‘Brad and Marion immediately had the utmost respect for each other, so once they delved into their characters, their chemistry was electric,’
Adding: ‘It was crucial for Brad and Marion to not only begin rehearsing together before the shoot, but they also spent a lot of time developing their characters with the director, Robert Zemeckis,’
‘By the time we got to set, it was really amazing to see these characters already feel lived-in and real.’
In a telling interview with the guardian the acclaimed French actress who until the Brad Pitt Angelina divorce scandal broke out was little known outside France, Marion Cotillard, told of never fitting in.
Told the actress: ‘Before my family, everything in my life was dedicated to the character. The more deeply affected I was by her, the closer I felt to her. But I cannot lock myself away in another world any more. I don’t want it to affect my son when I’m in a weird state because I’m ”depressed” or ”killing a king”.’
Jolie, who is being represented by celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, filed for divorce on Monday and list the date of separation as September 15.
TMZ reports that there was no third party involved in their split with the actress citing irreconcilable differences. An account which is markedly different from the one that Angelina Jolie’s handlers presented pagesix.
