After months of breathless tabloid reports about Brad Pitt's get-together with ex Jennifer Aniston, how he and Angelina Jolie have separate bedrooms – and how the pair fought constantly during the Cannes Film Festival – what is going on with Hollywood's golden couple?

PEOPLE not only reveals the answers in its latest cover story, on sale Friday, but also finds out what fanned the gossip in the first place.

While the pair have rarely been snapped out together in recent months, there have been sightings. On June 5, PEOPLE reports, Pitt showed up on the Long Island set of Angelina's thriller Salt for a belated celebration of Angelina's 34th birthday one day before. Brad "took one of the little birthday cakes and smushed it into her face," says an eyewitness. "It was really funny."

A couple carelessly in love – or putting on a show to hide a relationship in trouble?

For the complete story – including Brad's Mother's Day present, the truth about whether Brad's mom really dislikes Angelina, and the stars' own reaction to the breakup rumors – pick up the new PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday
