Hollywood actress, Natalie Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied are going through a rough patch in their marriage after he cheated on her with a younger woman.
According to French outlet Voici and corroborated by Page Six, Millepied allegedly had an affair with a 25-year-old woman. However, People magazine reported that an insider claimed the affair was ‘short-lived’ and is now ‘over.’
The insider described the alleged affair as an “enormous mistake,” stating that Millepied was fully aware of the gravity of his actions and is now working to mend the damage caused to his relationship with Portman.
Natalie Portman, 41, an Oscar-winning actress, and Benjamin Millepied, a 45-year-old dancer and choreographer, have been married since 2012.
While a source told Page Six that the couple had briefly separated last year before reconciling, it appears to be unrelated to Millepied’s alleged affair with climate activist, Camille Étienne, who is 25.
Page Six’s source mentioned that Portman and Millepied are currently making efforts to work through their issues.
The source emphasized that Millepied is doing everything he can to seek forgiveness from Portman, expressing his love for her and their family.
The source also highlighted Portman’s commitment to maintaining privacy when it comes to matters concerning her marriage. Their main focus at the moment is protecting their children, the source added.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied got engaged in 2010 and tied the knot in 2012 in Big Sur, California. Together, they have a son named Aleph, who is 12, and a daughter named Amalia, who is six years old.
