Marion Cotillard breaks silence on Brad Pitt cheating rumors

Marion Cotillard Cannes 2016The shocking break up of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has spawned a litany of allegations, from child endangerment, to drug abuse, and even rumors that Brad cheated on Angelina with his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard, who also happens to be pregnant.

And now, in a rare move, the typically very-private Marion has taken to Instagram to put the rumors to rest.

“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,” she wrote in a caption alongside a photo of a painting on Instagram. “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.”

She began her response by defending her nine-year relationship with French actor and director Guillaume Canet, and confirming that he is the father of her unborn child.

“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.”

She continued, “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.”

The Oscar-winning French actress then made sure to send well wishes to the couple formerly known as Brangelina.

“Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment,” and signed off the note, “With all my love, Marion.” ~Shelby Morton

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.

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 Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j’aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n’ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d’absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j’aime, je me dois de m’exprimer. Pour commencer, j’ai rencontré il y a quelques années l’homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd’hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j’ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d’inventions aberrantes ne m’affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la “presse”, à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j’ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

    Marion is so far above these classless morons. People should leave her name out of the petty drama!

    Unlike some celebs, *cough* Brangelina *cough*, she’s not addicted to fame

    To all the news media, leave all of them alone they don’t need any more stres.They are the parents of 6 children, Angelina Jolie is a respected Ambassador that’s doing an amazing job in many countries and telling unbelievable stories through her movies. To accomplish what they have done in their lives,is an astronomical undertaking,
    Leave them alone.
