Last weekend, fans noticed that Jennifer Aniston was part of the audience during John Mayer’s Instagram Live chat with fans about the death of Bill Withers. And, before California’s shelter-in-place order went into effect the exes were spotted together at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles. Could this be a hint that Aniston and Mayer are rekindling their romance?
According to Us Weekly, Aniston and Mayer are not getting back together after dating more than a decade ago, but the duo are still friends.

“Jen and John have a nice friendship,” claimed the insider. “John has a deep admiration and respect for Jen.”
Aniston and Mayer met at an Oscar party in February 2008 – two years after her divorce from Brad Pitt and three years before she started dating her second husband, Justin Theroux – and they dated for a few months. They briefly rekindled their romance in 2009, but later called it quits for good.
The source says that Aniston and Mayer are not super close and don’t spend a lot of time together, but when they talk or are out together “it’s always friendly and nice. “ The insider added that “there is definitely no weirdness between them.”
During Mayer’s Instagram Live video on Sunday, April 5th, viewers noticed that Aniston commented with three laugh-crying emojis when the singer-songwriter was talking about how “useful” everything Withers said was, no matter who he was speaking to.
The comment from Mayer that caused Aniston’s reaction was: “Four percent of the things that I say are useful. One hundred percent of the things he said were useful.” As soon as Aniston posted the emojis, one fan wrote: “Omg Jen is here.”

Jennifer Aniston has also maintained her friendship with Justin Theroux since their split in 2018. For her birthday in 2019, Theroux gave her a shout out on social media, calling her a “fierce woman.” The following year, Theroux wished Aniston a happy 51st birthday by posting a pic of the Friends alum making a “roar” face and flexing her muscles.
In the caption of the photo, Theroux simply wrote, “Happy Birthday B,” along with a heart emoji.
Aniston also appears to be on good terms with Brad Pitt, who attended her 50th birthday party in 2019. The former couple had a brief run-in backstage at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and the photos from the encounter nearly broke the internet.
