According to some insiders, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s seemingly sudden and unexpected split was in fact, not that sudden! We have learned that the actress’ close friendship with her ex Brad Pitt actually had a lot to do with the crumbling of her two-year-long marriage.
One source explained that ‘The one thing that Justin [Theroux] was always insecure about was her relationship with Brad. Jen and Brad never really stopped talking, but after his split from Angelina, the two have been talking non-stop.’
Fans of Jennifer Aniston definitely know by now that when she turned 49 years old this month on the 11th, Theroux was nowhere to be found.
She was however supported and celebrated on the big day by her close girlfriends, including her former co-star and real-life BFF Courteney Cox.
The reason why Theroux was not in attendance at the low-key party was not exactly because they were fighting but because they were already over.
According to their joint statement, the relationship came to an end at the close of last year.
But they also claimed that they are still good friends so why didn’t he attend the bash anyway – as a pal?
The source explained that ‘Her intense talks with Brad’s what drove him to leave her. He ditched Jen on her birthday and went to his place in New York. She was basically forced to spend it only with her girlfriends.’
‘While celebrating with her friends, she was an emotional train wreck, and she called him while she was with them still. But it was too late. Brad was the final straw for Justin. At this point, he really believes she and Brad will get back together.’
Huh. Maybe they are not such good friends after all, seeing how Justin is so jealous of Jennifer’s closeness with Brad.
