While the irreconcilable differences and the "health of the family" were the reasons cited for the divorce filed by Angelina Jolie after spending almost 11 years together, reports suggest something else more severe for this unfortunate turn of events between Angelina and Brad.
If rumours are to be believed, the actual reason is something else. It is known from a reliable source that Brad Pitt's proximity to the Allied co-actor Marion Cotillard, had sparked a rift between Angelina and Brad. However, Brad later dismissed this issue saying they were just part of a movie.
Apparently, Angelina didn't let the matter go easily. She hired a private detective to keep an eye on them, only to find out that her speculations were true.
However, some of the sources close to Marion Cotillard claims that the actress is in a settled relationship and would never cheat on her partner.
Meanwhile, George Clooney, who is very close to both Angelina and Brad reveals that he had no prior intimation about such an occurence.
"That's a sad story and unfortunate for a family. It's an unfortunate story about a family. I feel very sorry to hear that. That's the first I've heard of it." said Clooney.
Whatever is the reason, it has to be very serious and grave, for such an unfortunate end to one of Hollywood's most cherished relationships.
