Angelina Jolie, allegedly, hired a private investigator to follow Brad Pitt during their marriage.
According to Page Six, Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after she found out that he was having an affair with Marion Cotillard.
“She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw,” a source said in 2016.

Other than Pitt and Cotillard’s alleged affair, Jolie also found out through her private investigator that the actor had been partying nonstop.
“The atmosphere [off-set] was full of hard drugs and Russian hookers, and Angie was told Brad got caught up in it. He’s in the throes of some insane midlife crisis, and Angie is fed up,” the source said.

However, Cotillard immediately denied the reports. On her Instagram account, the actress said that she’s still with her long-term partner, Guillaume Canet.
“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. 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, the father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need,” Cotillard wrote.
The actress also mentioned Pitt and Jolie in her lengthy post.
“Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love, Marion,” she wrote.
A source close to the actress also echoed her statement by saying that she’s still with Canet. The couple has been together since 2007 and they have one child together. However, they haven’t tied the knot.
Years later, the real reason behind Pitt and Jolie’s divorce was revealed. And it didn’t have anything to do with the actor’s alleged affair with Cotillard.
According to Jolie’s lawyer, the actress cited irreconcilable differences as the main reason for the filing. Pitt was also involved in an altercation with his eldest son, Maddox. And Jolie decided to separate from Brad Pitt for the wellbeing of her family.
