Jodie Foster split from her long-term lover because the actress was having an affair, it has been reported.
Jodie – who recently separated from Cydney Bernard after 14 years together – is alleged to have been seeing another woman, who she met on the set of her 2007 movie The Brave One.
Cydney is said to have been left “devastated” after discovering 45-year-old Jodie was romancing producer and screenwriter Cindy Mort, 51.
A source told National Enquirer magazine: “The affair heated up last year and the pair have been quietly seeing each other since then.”
Despite separating, Jodie – who has two children – and Cydney are still living together, but the ‘Silence of the Lambs’ star plans to move out in the near future.
The source added: “Although she and Cydney remain under the same roof at the moment, the relationship has been shattered. They’ll continue to raise the boys together and try to keep a loving family unit despite their break-up. The love is gone.”
Cindy has two children with her ex-partner, actress Melanie Mayron, who she remains close friends with. The pair live a few doors down from one another on the same street in Los Angeles.
