The love life of Jennifer Aniston has been in the headlines even before she started dating Justin Theroux. Why wouldn’t it be? She was married to one of the hottest men in Hollywood. Unfortunately, her relationship with Brad Pitt ended up in a divorce after the actor fell in love with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie.
It took around five years before the 47-year-old actress got into a new relationship. According to Us Weekly, Aniston fell for Theroux while filming Wanderlust in 2010. However, the two only confirmed their relationship in 2011 when they attended an MTV Movie Awards after-party together.
Maybe the reason why they tried to hide their romance was because of Justin’s ex-girlfriend Heidi Bivens. Not many people know about the dating history of the 44-year-old actor since his former lover isn’t a famous celebrity. But he and the 40-year-old costume designer dated for 14 years before he broke up with her.
Biven’s mom, Marilyn, revealed what happened to her daughter in a tell-all interview with Radar Online. According to the 71-year-old mother, Justin lied to her daughter about his romance with Jen. She allegedly considered the actor as her son after letting him become part of their family for 14 years, but it all ended when he betrayed them.
“My baby’s heart was pierced. It was a terrible time,” Marilyn confessed after emotionally reciting a prayer.
“Heidi told me what his boyfriend had told her, that something was going to be written about him and Jennifer, that something was going on between them and he wanted her to know that it was nothing, there was nothing to it,” revealed Marilyn. “Out of his own mouth he told my daughter there was nothing to [the news he was involved with Jennifer].”
When the official news came out that Aniston and Theroux were dating, the actor’s ex-girlfriend called his mother to break the bad news. Bivens was reportedly suffering from cancer at that time, which made it more difficult for her to move on.
According to Marilyn, the Leftovers star started to become sinister and dark when his career took off. He was having a hard time separating his life from all the characters that he played in his movies. Her daughter even opened up about how Theroux is starting to become the characters that he played. Marilyn thinks that the actor’s world was very dark and Jennifer is the same, that’s why they probably got attracted to each other.
“We have a choice, even if you’re not a Christian you know what’s good; you know the choice of darkness and the people who are acting out that darkness,” Marilyn said. “Justin is married now to Jennifer. They are, I believe, alike in spirit. They compliment one another the spirit of the world brought them together.”
It’s been more than five years since Theroux dumped Bivens for Aniston. However, it seems that she is still heartbroken about what happened. Despite what happened, Heidi’s mother tried not to condemn the actor for cheating and hurting her.
Back in April, Radar Online reported that the Hollywood heartthrob has been secretly calling his ex-girlfriend. The former Friends star allegedly saw an anonymous call from New York in her husband’s cellphone, but he just said that it was from a friend that she doesn’t know. So, she dialed the number and recognized Bivens’ voice.
“Jen confronted Justin,” an insider said. “She broke down in tears and demanded that he cut-off communication with Heidi immediately. He tried to apologize and made a few lame excuses about he and his ex-girlfriend having mutual friends.”
However, Marilyn claims that Justin Theroux never tried getting in touch with Heidi Bivens since he started dating Jennifer Aniston.
