Natalie Portman and her husband, Benjamin Millepied, have been one of Hollywood’s most low-key and longtime couples. However, the pair quickly became the subject of affair allegations when multiple outlets reported that Benjamin cheated on Natalie in July 2023. After an allegedly heartbreaking hiccup in their romance, is there a chance that the Black Swan costars are still together? 

Are Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied Still Together? 

Rumors circulated online that the French dancer cheated on the Academy Award winner with a woman named Camille Ètienne. However, neither Natalie, Benjamin nor Camilla have publicly addressed the allegations. 

That month, a source told Us Weekly that Natalie felt “humiliated” by the accusations her husband was facing. 

“Natalie believes Benjamin’s affair was a brief and stupid liaison that means nothing to him,” the insider explained, adding that the Star Wars franchise cast member was “willing to see if she’s capable of rebuilding her trust” so that that their kids didn’t have to “grow up in a broken home.”

However, a separate source told the outlet that Natalie “[didn’t] know” whether she and the choreographer could work things out. 

“Right now, they are talking and working on it together for the sake of their children,”  the second insider noted. 

Reps for Natalie and Benjamin did not immediately respond to Life & Style’s request for comment. 

Did Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied Split?

The pair allegedly separated after 11 years of marriage, Us Weekly reported on August 7, 2023. Three days prior, Natalie was seen ​without her wedding ring on the couple’s 11th wedding anniversary on August 4, 2023, while attending a soccer game in Sydney, Australia, without Benjamin.

“After news of his affair came out, they’ve been trying to work on their marriage but are currently on the outs,” an insider told the publication.

In January 2024, a source exclusively told Life & Style that Natalie was “officially pulling the plug on her marriage.”

“She really tried forgiving Benjamin — the last thing she imagined in her life was a divorce — but she could not get past the betrayal,” the source dished.

The May December actress broke her silence on the cheating allegations after she was asked about her marriage during the Vanity Fair 2024 Hollywood issue.

“It’s terrible, and I have no desire to contribute to it,” Natalie told the publication.

In March 2024, People reported that Natalie filed for divorce in France in July 2023 and it was finalized the following February.

“It was initially really tough for her, but her friends rallied around her and helped get her through the worst of it,” a source told the outlet. “Natalie is coming out of a really tough and painful year but she’s come out the other side of it stronger and is finding joy in her family, friends and work.”

While recalling how she met her future husband, the Thor actress called their introduction “dreamland” during a June 2018 Sirius XM interview. 

“So, it was pretty … it seemed pretty fun the whole time,” she explained, referring to working with Benjamin. “It was, like, I really got to know him, and then, that is when it seemed [like], ‘Oh, right, this is the person.’”

Less than two months before cheating accusations surfaced against him, Benjamin addressed his and Natalie’s working relationship during an April 2023 interview with Us Weekly. 

“Well, [Natalie and I] share what we’re working on, but we’re like two artists with different ambitions and interests,” he noted. “But, of course, we share what’s going on, and I’m sending her a new script that I finished.”
