As A-list celebs Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt continue to battle divorce rumors, a new prong in the saga has emerged: Pitt reportedly cheated on his wife with former Disney star Selena Gomez. Though the claim is unlikely to be true, it’s the latest gossip in a boiling pot of rumors that are driving the “Maleficent” actress mad, Star magazine wrote in an exclusive report Wednesday, according to Hollywood Life.
“All the rumors about Brad and Selena made [Angie] insane with jealousy,” an insider told the publication.
The infidelity allegations started after Gomez, 23, appeared in Pitt’s film, “The Big Short.” She posted a photo of them together on Instagram after the Golden Globe awards in January. “Just discussing #TheBigShort,” she captioned the image. The picture was liked nearly 2 million times by her 65.5 million followers.
But Jolie, 40, isn’t the only one who is worried about cheating. The mother of six was reportedly caught getting “cozy” with a crewmember from her new film, "First They Killed My Father."
It’s Jolie’s “dark demons” that have taken a toll on their marriage. “Some of her issues force her to retreat into isolation and pull away from Brad and the kids. It is impossible to be entirely free from who she once was,” an insider told Hollywood Life last month. “Angie has some serious dark demons that have never entirely let go and it is still affecting her life and marriage.”
Pitt tried to rekindle their romance with an exotic vacation to Vietnam, but she pushed him away. “He hoped that he and Angie could reignite the spark between them, but all they did was scream at each other,” an insider told Radar Online in January. “Angie even humiliated Brad by telling him she’s no longer attracted to him because he looks fat, bloated and old.”
