ANGELINA Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt amid shock claims he cheated on her with movie co-star Marion Cotillard.

The Hollywood actress wants overall physical custody of their six children – not joint custody with Brad after citing irreconcilable differences in legal papers. The New York Post have claimed the 41-year-old actress hired a private investigator to spy on him on the set of his latest film — where they claim she learned he was cheating. One source told Page Six: "She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her (Cotillard) on the set, and it turns out, he was.

"And that was the final straw."

 The rumours come as a trailer for Pitt's upcoming movie with Cotillard shows the pair passionately kissing, with the movie reportedly featuring a number of steamy sex scenes. But TMZ has said the marriage breakdown was not over an affair at all, instead making the incredible accusation that Angelina had become '"fed up" with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem" felt it became dangerous for the children. She also reportedly became upset over his parenting methods, with the couple differing in their approach to bringing up their six kids.

But a source told TMZ that the claims around Pitt's parenting were a "malicious lie", saying "he's a loving and devoted father who has never and would never put his children in any dangerous situation." The source also said that the father of six wanted to remain a "present father" for the brood. Brad Pitt has released a statement to PEOPLE, since the news broke, saying: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters now is the well being of our kids. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

He also spoke out saying that when a couple faces a difficult trial, it could either make or break them. Angelina Jolie's manager Geyer Kosinski said in a statement: "Angelina will always do what's in the best interest to protect her children." Angelina's entertainment attorney Robert Offer released a statement, saying the star had made the decision "for the health of the family." Marion Cotillard is since said to be "absolutely devastated" over claims she is involved in the split.

A source said that the 40-year-old actress was "blissfully happy" with fellow actor Guillame Canet. The source said Cotillard, who had son Marcel about five years ago, "enjoys her family time and wants to enjoy more of it. All this fuss will be a huge shock to her." But other reports have surfaced over the French actress' "insane chemistry" with Brad on set of their new movie. A source told: "They had insane chemistry right from the start, and many crew members believe they've been acting on it in private."
