Los Angeles: After two and a half years of marriage and seven years as a couple, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have parted ways. Soon after they officially announced their split, fans took to social media questioning about Jennifer’s reunion with ex-husband Brad Pitt, who separated from Angelina Jolie last year.
Aniston and Theroux announced their separation on Thursday. As per reports, the decision to part ways was made at the end of last year.
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” the couple said in a joint statement.
“Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another,” they said.
Shortly after news broke, Twitter stared speculating over her getting back with her former hubby Pitt. The former couple divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage.
Pitt then married Jolie, but the couple got separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage. The pair were together for 11 years before they called it quits.
