Report: Angelina Jolie Filed for Divorce After Discovering Brad Pitt’s Affair with Marion Cotillard


Angelina Jolie’s lawyer has issued a statement on her decision to file for divorce from husband Brad Pitt.

“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” her attorney Robert Offer said in the statement.

The statement comes after reports that the final straw that ended their marriage was Brad’s affair with co-star Marion Cotillard.

“He’s in the throes of some insane midlife crisis, and Angie is fed up,’’ the source said. “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.”

Pitt, 52, had been rumored to have been cozying up to his “Allied’’ co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, for months during the pair’s filming of the WW II drama in London.

The PI discovered that not only was Pitt cheating on his wife of two years with Cotillard but also with Russian hookers while boozing it up with coworkers, the source said.

Jolie, 41, also was sick and tired of sparring over their lifestyle, another source said.

She has increasingly wanted to quit Hollywood in favor of devoting herself full-time to traveling the globe for her humanitarian work, while Pitt prefers Tinseltown and its parties, the source said.

Jolie spoke before the United Nations in Manhattan just this past Friday to ask them to help millions of Syrian refugees.

“The older she gets, the more serious she becomes, and she is sick of the Hollywood thing,’’ the second source said.

“He wants to make movies. She doesn’t. It’s a fundamental difference. It’s how you live your life.’’

Making matters worse, Pitt is closer to Jolie’s famous actor dad, Jon Voight, than she is, the source said.

“Jon’s a Hollywood guy, and she’s been estranged. Brad hangs out with her father more than she does,’’ the source said.

Another source told TMZ that Jolie believes that her hubby’s drinking and pot-smoking is affecting their kids.

Add to that his “anger problem,” and the mom of six said enough is enough, the source told the Web site.

We’re still in disbelief.
