Just two months after his shocking split from Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux is apparently sending flirty texts to the newly-single Selena Gomez. The young singer – who was very much a friend of Aniston’s – is texting back and sources say this is going to infuriate Aniston.
According to Radar Online, the flirtatious back-and-forth between Theroux and Gomez via text is something that was a long time coming.
“It was kind of an open secret that Justin was sweet on Selena when he and Jen hung out with her,” revealed an insider. “To be fair, they did get on well, but he’s asking for major trouble by trying to hang out with her so soon after his and Jen’s split.”
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time Theroux has canoodled with a young Hollywood starlet since he and Aniston’s split. Last month, cameras spotted him and Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza strolling in New York City and stopping by his apartment. But, the two were simply meeting for an upcoming project and Plaza is still in a relationship with her longtime boyfriend, director Jeff Baena.

Then, Theroux got cozy with Emma Stone earlier this month in a photo for his Instagram Story, but Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness was also in the pic, and Theroux made it clear that they were “just bfffffs.”
Later that night, Theroux hit the premiere party for his pal John Krasinski’s latest directorial effort A Quiet Place, and he was all smiles as he posed for pics with Krasinski and Stanley Tucci. The 46-year-old kept things casual with a black crew neck t-shirt, charcoal blazer, ripped jeans, and boots.
The Girl on The Train star sat next to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively during the movie, and afterwards, he seemed to be in good spirits as he posed for selfies with fans.
Sources say that Theroux has just been “doing his thing” since he and Aniston went their separate ways back in February. He apparently has a set schedule and eats every day at the same time, goes to the same familiar places, and hangs out with the same people.
He has also been doing a little bit of traveling. Theroux showed up last month at Fashion Week in Paris at the Louis Vuitton women’s wear show, and before that he went to Austin, Texas, and visited a dog shelter. He documented that trip with an adorable pic on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Aniston has been spending time with her friends, and just recently returned from a trip to Tahiti where she vacationed with Jimmy Kimmel, Jason Bateman, and Courteney Cox.
Justin Theroux has not commented on the rumors surrounding his love life.
