Natalie Portman’s husband, Benjamin Millepied, allegedly had an affair with a much-younger woman.
Though Page Six was told in early June 2023 that the A-list actress and the famed ballet dancer are working through his purported dalliance, just who is the woman who allegedly stole Millepied’s heart — at least for a time?
Her name is Camille Étienne, and she’s two decades his junior.
However, sources close to Portman and Millepied assured us that the two “have not split,” adding that “Ben is doing everything he can to get Natalie to forgive him. He loves her and their family.”
The duo met in 2009 on the set of her Oscar-winning ballet movie, “Black Swan,” for which he did the choreography. (They later collaborated on her 2018 film, “Vox Lux.”)
The pair got engaged in December 2010 and tied the knot in August 2012.
Their son, Aleph, was born in June 2011, and their daughter, Amalia, arrived in February 2017.
We’re told the couple separated in 2022 but seemingly reconciled by their 10-year anniversary in August. “It keeps getting better,” the actress gushed at the time.
However, French magazine Voici alleged that Portman discovered — or perhaps re-discovered — her husband’s purported affair in early March 2023.
The outlet published photos of Millepied and Étienne entering his Paris office separately in late May 2023 and exiting two hours later, 10 minutes apart.
Though the woman of the hour did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment, here is what we know about her:
