Actress Angelina Jolie was reportedly convinced that Brad Pitt cheated on her with Marlon Cotillard. According to the initial reports, it was mentioned that Jolie was concerned about Pitt's parenting skills and was abusive towards their son, Maddox.

However, Brad was quick to deny all such claim and stressed that he had never cheated on Angelina. According to Hollywood Life, the child abuse claims were allegedly made by Angelina Jolie's team, to win full custody of the kids. Moreover, she is reportedly using her PR team to create a campaign against her soon-to-be-ex-husband so that she gets the full custody of their 6 children.

It was also reported that Angelina has always been suspicious of her husband's cheating ways. Probably it reminded the actor how he got involved with her while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Fans will recall that the famous couple broke up in 2005 after the actor grew a close bond with his hit movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith's co-star Angelina Jolie.

"Angelina is obsessed with fears that Brad may have cheated on her with Marion Cotillard, 41 — even though both Marion and Brad have denied it — and that's what prompted the break-up in the first place," a source reveals as cited by Inquistr.

The source further added, "He swears blind that he didn't, but she refuses to believe him — she actually even threw back in face the fact that they met and became close while he was still to married to Jennifer Aniston. [Angelina Jolie] was using it as a convenient excuse, and that she had wanted to end the marriage for months as they had been fighting a lot towards the end."
