Actress Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied split after 11 years of marriage

Natalie Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, have separated after 11 years of marriage, following reports he had an affair with a younger woman.

In June, rumors swirled that Millepied was having an affair with Camille Étienne, a 25-year-old climate activist. 

Last week, Portman was then seen without her wedding ring during an outing in Australia – sparking further speculation that the duo’s marriage has come to an end. 

However, a source close to the actress told DailyMail that the reports of separation are just ‘rumours’ and ‘speculation’ and Natalie Portman has yet to make a definitive decision about the future of their marriage.

According to the source, ‘[Natalie] hates that [Benjamin’s] infidelity has made her feel powerless,’ the insider told DailyMail.com. ‘She doesn’t know if she can regain her power by staying with him or leaving him. 

‘It is really a struggle to have to continue to deal with it.’ 

But, the source insisted that ‘deep down’, Portman and Millepied are still ‘really in love’ and are trying to work out what went wrong in their marriage. 

”They are really taking it day by day because deep down they are really in love, and they are trying to figure out what has caused the distance between them,’ the source continued. ‘She wants to stay with him, and he really wants to be with her.

”They both know that breaking up and staying together forever are still on the table and only time will tell what direction they will actually take.”

Portman and Millepied met in 2009 while working on Darren Aronofsky’s thriller Black Swan, which hit theaters in 2010. They share a son Aleph, 12, and a daughter Amalia, 6.
