After news broke earlier this week that Brad Pitt was back on the market after Angelina Jolie filed divorce papers citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ the rumors began circulating that the cause of the divorce was Mr. Fight Club sleeping in the wrong cave (if you get my drift). We reported here on BroBible that ‘sources’ had claimed a private investigator found Brad Pitt to be having an affair with actress Marion Cotillard (and Russian prostitutes).
Before letting the rumors hit a fever pitch the actress addressed them head on in an Instagram post:
Here’s that text just in case it didn’t populate for you 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.
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.
And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery.
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
What I find interesting is she goes as far as saying ‘(my husband is) the only one that I need (in my life)’ AND she announces her second pregnancy, but at no point does she explicitly say ‘I did not have an affair with Brad Pitt’. Not that she should have to say that at all. If she didn’t have the affair she shouldn’t need to address this one bit, but it seems like she did because she cares deeply for the splitting couple.
And while my colleague Doug posted this yesterday in relation to Bovada already allowing gamblers to bet on who Brad Pitt will marry next, I haven’t had a chance to share this NYPost with you bros yet:
The NYPost is known for its front-page savagery, but this is some next-level shit right here. With that front page sitting on newsstands all across NYC yesterday I’m guessing no less than 5 million people saw that paper just walking around Manhattan, and a few million more saw that online. Fucking SAVAGE.
