Ange and Brad are living separate lives as shock new cheating claims rock their relationship

After  exclusively revealed that they’re planning a split, insiders say things between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have taken a turn for the worse.

Things are now ‘beyond repair’, with the couple agreeing to spend as much time apart as possible in 2010.

We can reveal that Brad, 46, jetted off to get away from Angelina after it was claimed that she cheated on him last summer.

In a magazine interview, Anna Kowalski, an ex-employee of The Waldorf Astoria in New York, claims that Angelina, 34, had an affair with an extra from her film Salt.

Angelina stayed at the Astoria during filming for the movie, while Brad and their six children – Maddox, 8, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 3, Pax, 6, and 18-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne – were living in a rented mansion in Long Island.

Anna, who worked as a housekeeper at the Astoria, says Angelina was frequently visited by the extra, claiming: ‘She’d see the man while a bodyguard stood at the entrance of the suite.’

Anna says that after one of Ange’s late-night meetings with the extra in mid-July, she witnessed what looked like evidence of a night of passion.

‘I was asked to go up to her suite by one of her staff. There were empty vodka bottles everywhere and flowers in the bath with candles. The bed was covered with black rubber sheets and there were sex toys on it,’ she claimed.

She added: ‘I’d seen him going up to her room on the security monitor after 10pm that same night.’

Sources close to the couple say their constant rows have served a purpose in making it easier for both of them to walk away.

One says: ‘I don’t think they even remember what it was like when they were happy.

‘Their chances of surviving as a couple have hit rock bottom.’
