The world has been abuzz with rumours surrounding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s recent split.
One actress caught in the cross-fire of gossip was Marion Cotillard, being accused of having an affair with Brad Pitt while filming their recent film Allied, which eventually led to the break up of Brangelina.
Marion took to Instagram to squash the rumours in their tracks, saying, “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.”
Since then, her husband has also taken to social media to tear the tabloids apart for their cruel gossip.
In French, he commented, “I do not usually comment on rumours about us ... I do not usually talk about my private life, which until now I have always carefully protected ... But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the hatred of some users feeling stronger behind a keyboard, push me to speak of the pride, the love, respect and admiration I have for Marion, for staying so strong and intelligent in the face all these stupid and unfounded accusations," he wrote in French.”
"I think we're all living with much more important things at the moment and now it's time to move on and raise the bar a bit. Even if that's a lot of work for some, I want to be positive. And as Marion said so well, I hope you get better and aspire to something more in your life than constantly sending sh**!"
We think it’s time we let rumours truly die and the Jolie-Pitt family have their privacy.
