A new report has suggested that Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are having relationship struggles after Jolie confessed to a years-old liaison.
New reports have suggested that Angelina Jolie has done some recent soul searching. As a result, the "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" star made the decision to come clean about some old mistakes from her past.
Pitt and Jolie, also known as Brangelina, first met on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2004 while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. In 2005, the pair was later accused of having an affair, although Jolie consistently denied any such rumors.
While Jolie did not admit to being in a relationship with Pitt until 2006, following the announcement that she was pregnant with his child, the couple was frequently seen together following Pitt's divorce from Aniston.
A source has now reported that Jolie recently confessed to Pitt that she had been in a relationship with another man during the early stages of their courtship.
"Angie admitted that in 2005, during the first year she and Brad were together after he left his wife, Jennifer Aniston, she was also having a relationship behind Brad's back with one of her ex-lovers," a source told Star magazine.
Further adding to tensions is that fact that Jolie has frequently complained about Pitt making any contact with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, but has admitted that she still contacts her ex-lover when back in L.A.
Jolie would "hit the roof if Brad ever so much as mentioned Jen, let alone got together with her," the source told Star.
The source also reported that the fight has escalated to the point that Pitt claimed he would leave her if not for their children, which disheartened Jolie.
"Angie has secretly been plagued with that fear for nearly two years - but to actually hear Brad say it cut her to pieces," the source said.
