Social media is always up for a romantic reconciliation story. Shortly after Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux confirmed their split, the Twitterverse went into a massive meltdown over a potential reunion between Aniston and her ex-hubby, Brad Pitt, who also happens to be single at the moment. How did fans react to what could be the craziest Hollywood reunion in decades?
According to E! Online, Aniston and Theroux confirmed their breakup this week with a joint statement. The former couple revealed that the decision to part ways was mutual and that they have been living separately since December.
Aniston and Theroux thankfully departed amicably and remain good friends. They only decided to announce the split to avoid any more rumors about their marital woes, which have been making the rounds for months.

While it’s sad to hear about Aniston’s failed marriage, fans couldn’t help but wonder if she will reunite with Pitt, who is still single following his split from Angelina Jolie in 2016.
Fans pretty much lost it on Twitter thinking about a potential reunion between Aniston and Pitt, who parted ways back in 2005. Most fans sounded convinced that Pitt and Aniston will get back together, especially after we know that they have been in contact with each other since at least 2015.

At the time, Aniston opened up about her friendship with Pitt and how they have both forgiven each other for what happened.
“We’re not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other,” the actress explained.
But what are the chances that Aniston and Pitt rekindle their romance?
For now, it looks like the chances of a reunion are pretty slim. Aside from the fact that their romance didn’t work out in the first place, a lot has happened since they divorced in 2005.
Aniston has dated numerous men in the interim while Pitt’s still working out the details of his divorce with Jolie, with whom he shares a whopping six kids.

Of course, if it were up to fans, then Pitt and Aniston would have hooked up the moment she parted ways with Theroux. And if you’ve been on Twitter lately, you might be convinced that it will happen.
In a world where a reality TV star is the President, anything can happen. After all, Pitt and Aniston are entirely different people than they were over a decade ago. Perhaps getting back together wouldn’t be such a bad idea, especially considering how much Pitt has matured over the years.
Brad Pitt has not said anything publicly about Jennifer Aniston’s recent breakup.
