Find Out Why Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Split

Posted February 17, 2018

Their history is hardly an easy one.

The duo have been close friends for 16 years after starring together in the film Mulholland Drive in 2001.

July 2013: According to the gossip mill, the couple delayed their wedding to avoid overlapping with the wedding of Jen's ex Brad Pitt to Angelina Jolie, but Jen paints a different picture to The Associated Press. Pitt's divorce to Aniston was finalized that fall.

Jennifer Aniston may be single but she is not looking for a shoulder to cry on.

"Justin definitely wanted to be involved, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me on how to include another voice in the design process", she admitted in the feature.

"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have made a decision to announce our separation", the former couple said in the statement released by Aniston's publicist Stephen Huvane. "Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictionalized narrative". "Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another", they added. "Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry can not resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly".

Also neither Jennifer or Justin have contacted a divorce attorney yet.

An insider explained to ETOnline: "He much prefers being [in New York] and that's been a major issue for them for a long time". They built a life that worked for a while, and they found commonalities that kept it going, but enough time passed where it became obvious they weren't compatible.

"Jen has continued her life as usual", a source told People.

However Aniston was revealed to be only pretending to pre-record, as a screen pulled back to reveal she was just feet away.

I'm gonna go ahead and put this one in the *very* unlikely category, but The Daily Mailreports that Jen was "upset" with Justin after he hugged Naomi previous year, and that she "grew increasingly angry that he acted like he was single". The paparazzi wouldn't leave her alone and even came to the couple's apartment, making it frustrating to be home.

A source close to Brad Pitt also said that while the actor is "sad" to hear the news about Jennifer's split, he hasn't "reached out to Jen, and has no plans to do so at this point". When Justin is in LA, it's very special for them.

It sounds like it's time for Twitter to take the cue from Aniston, take a breath, and move on.
