As Brad’s current co-star in the film Allied, the French star unexpectently found herself embroiled in the drama. Reports of an affair surfaced after it was suggested that Angelina had grown suspicious of the pair’s relationship and hired a private detective to snoop on them – despite Marion being happily settled with partner Guillaume Canet.

It was also reported that she was pregnant, and now Marion has confirmed the news – whilst using the opportunity to put the ‘haters’ to bed.

Writing in an Instagram post, the 40-year-old star said: ‘This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into.

‘I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.’

She then confirmed that she is expecting a baby with ‘the man of her life.’

‘Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need,’ she wrote.

Marion continued: ‘Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn’t distressing.

‘And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery.’

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion
