Torrid affairs, harmful weight loss, divorce rumors: This is some of the gossip to plague Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt over the last several months. Wednesday’s roundup of magazine covers was no different, courtesy of Life & Style magazine. The couple has split after 11 years together, the publication claims.
Life & Style promises to reveal what went wrong for the movie star pair after more than a decade together. The bold bullets read: “Jealousy, fights and the ‘other man’—shocking details,” “Angie’s weight drops to 90 pounds as she faces her third divorce” and “Already living apart.”
Life & Style is certain that the A-listers have broken up, thanks to a conversation with a source. “The relationship has disintegrated into withering glances and stony silences. Brad feels that their almost two-year union is unsalvageable,” the insider said. Even though they’ve been together for 11 years, Jolie and Pitt didn’t make things official until August 2014.
The magazine adds that Jolie is jealous of Pitt’s "Allied" co-star, French actress Marion Cotillard. The accusation was first promoted by In Touch Weekly, which wrote that Jolie feared Cotillard would steal Pitt from her, the same way she supposedly poached the “Fury” star from first wife Jennifer Aniston. “The resentment has been eating away at Angelina,” a supposed insider said last month. "She’s prone to think that since she was once Brad’s co-star and seduced him away from his wife, the same will happen to her.”
Jolie is also said to be envious of Cotillard’s Hollywood career. “She’s exactly the kind of sultry European actress that Angie has always wanted to be and she’s playing exactly the kind of role Angie’s always wanted to play,” an insider told the magazine. “Adding to the jealousy is the fact that Marion has one thing Angelina hasn’t achieved in her acting career: Oscar for best actress.”
While Jolie won an Oscar in 2000 for best supporting actress for “Girl, Interrupted,” Cotillard took home the Oscar for best actress in 2008 for playing legendary French singer Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose.”

But this is nothing more than tabloid fodder, Gossip Cop wrote Wednesday. The site, which debunks celebrity rumors, said there was “no truth to the outlet’s latest breakup rumors, which are simply rehashes of previously disproved tabloid stories.”
Jolie, 40, and Pitt, 52, have long faced such breakup rumors. As usual, neither celebrity has responded to the latest tabloid drama.
