Actress NATALIE PORTMAN to file for divorce from estranged husband BENJAMIN MILLEPIED

Saturday, January 13, 2024
 – Israeli-American actress, Natalie Portman is reportedly set to end her 11-year marriage with Benjamin Millepied after he was accused of cheating with a climate activist 21 years his junior.

This comes after the Black Swan actress, 42, seemingly confirmed the end of her 11-year marriage to the choreographer, 46, this week during an interview with WSJ Magazine in which she failed to mention him while disclosing that she lives in Paris with their two children.

She disclosed this after she flew solo at the Golden Globes, and just weeks after she was pictured once again without her wedding ring.

The actress has reportedly taken time to 'process and heal' and is trying to work out the best way to navigate a divorce for their children Aleph, 12, and daughter Amalia, six, before officially filing.

'Natalie and Benjamin tried to make it work but she simply could not get past his cheating on her,' an insider told DailyMail exclusively.

'Divorce is in the works, but nothing has been filed as of yet. They are split, however, and she is living in Paris while Benjamin continues to work in the US.

'They are figuring out what is best for their children, as they both have so much love for them and are great parents.'

The insider added: 'Natalie needed time to process and heal and those around her know how strong of a woman she is and how dedicated to her causes she is, including women's empowerment.

'No woman should have to put up with a cheating spouse. She has been private about it because that is who she is.'

Natalie and Benjamin's marriage was rocked by cheating allegations last year, when French outlet Voici released an explosive report, claiming he had an affair with 25-year-old climate activist Camille Étienne.

People magazine reported at the time that the romance with Camille was 'short-lived' and that Benjamin was 'doing all he could' to get 'Natalie to forgive him and keep their family together.'

'He knows he made an enormous mistake and he is doing all he can to get Natalie to forgive him and keep their family together,' a source told the publication.

'Natalie is incredibly private and has no intention of playing this out in the media. Her biggest priority is protecting her children and their privacy.'

In early August, however, an insider told Us Weekly that the pair were separating after failing to repair their relationship amid the bombshell cheating allegations.

'After news of his affair came out, they've been trying to work on their marriage but are currently on the outs,' the source said at the time.
