Chelsea Handler just took a major hit in the friend department. Jennifer Aniston reportedly cut ties with the comedian after she found out that Handler was dishing secrets about her personal life to the media. Is this the end of their friendship?
An insider told Radar Online that Handler feels bad about the leaks and told friends that she is the reason behind the split. The confession, unfortunately, came too late and Aniston reportedly told her publicist, Stephen Huvane, to drop Handler from the roster. The actress is also telling her friends what happened, and they are starting to turn their backs on Handler.
“Jennifer found out that Chelsea was spilling secrets about her marriage and talking behind her back,” the source explained. “Chelsea knows that she really messed things up with her. And the worst part is that now Jennifer has turned everyone against her.”
Aniston and Handler have been best friends for a long time. According to Radar Online, Handler attended Aniston’s top secret wedding with Justin Theroux back in 2015. Chelsea Handler first hinted at the end of their friendship during an interview with Howard Stern. She told Stern that she doesn’t deal with lying very well and expects high standards for her friends.
Handler added that she has already replaced Aniston with a number of top celebrities. This includes the likes of Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, and Kate Hudson. In fact, Handler was seen hanging out with Hudson, Russell, and Hawn over New Year’s Eve. The foursome welcomed the new year at a party in Aspen, Colorado.
Meanwhile, Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that Handler was recently spotted hanging out with Jennifer Garner. Handler and Garner enjoyed a lunch at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica and appeared to have a great time. Garner is coming off her divorce with Ben Affleck, who just came out with his new girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus.
It isn’t clear if Garner and Handler are best friends, but it is possible that Garner will confide in Handler about her divorce. Given how things ended with Aniston, Garner might want to think twice about what she says, especially if she doesn’t want anything leaked to the media.
Handler and Aniston have not commented on the end of their friendship. The two are believed to have parted ways a few months ago and have not been spotted together for quite some time.
