A friend in need is a friend indeed — Brad Pitt has turned to his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, no, not to date her but to ask for advice and have her as a confidant.
Mr. Pitt is embroiled in a complicated and sometimes nasty divorce battle with his estranged spouse, Angelina Jolie.
The war in the media started in late 2016 after Jolie surprised the world by announcing that she was divorcing the man who had been by her side for over a decade.
Several publications claimed that Jolie and Pitt split after he fought with one of their children on board a private plane.
What followed were insults and finger pointing from both parties and close relatives who appear eager to spill every negative detail about the Jolie/Pitt clan.
While the humanitarian is still lashing out at the father of her children, Pitt has decided move on with his life.
Jolie recently threw some shade at Pitt by saying he was not supportive.
She said: “They (the kids) really help me so much. We are really such a unit. They are the best friends I have ever had. Nobody in my life has ever stood by me more.”
The Oscar-winning producer has gone to rehab and reconnected with old friends, and one of them is Aniston.
The family friend, who spoke to In Touch, insisted that Pitt is not trying to destroy what Aniston has built with her husband, Justin Theroux.
The pal claimed that over the summer Pitt apologized to his former wife and since then they have been building on what is described as a close friendship.
Jolie is allegedly upset over the news that Pitt has reconnected with Aniston. The mother of six is also frustrated by the rumors that Pitt has started dating again.
Another source stated: “Brad is finally ready to date again. Hopefully, in the next few months, we will see him with another woman. He is living clean and is excited to start dating again soon. Brad has been talking about dating with friends over the summer after getting teased about Sienna Miller, who he was not dating. But there’s going to be a point where he will be with somebody again, and when it happens, it will be epic.”
The person added: “For the first time in a long time, Brad has been thinking about falling in love again, which has been super exciting for him to think about. It is like part of him that has been asleep has woken up. He is incredibly excited by the thought of falling in love again and being in a healthy relationship.”
Do you think it is a good idea for Aniston to be Pitt’s confidant?
