Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux appeared to be united despite having the actress’ name dragged into the Brangelina divorce drama. However, new reports revealed that there is trouble in their marriage because of the former Friends star couldn’t stop talking about Brad Pitt.
According to Radar Online, the 45-year-old actor is getting tired of the 47-year-old actress’ fascination with her ex-husband. He was reportedly seen upset when they were photographed having dinner in New York City because he isn’t into cheesy photo-ops. Jennifer allegedly has a habit of exploiting her relationship to show what the Fury actor was missing.
“It’s classic behavior from her! The moment this divorce news was announced it was all about calculating her next public appearance and timing it in a way that would embarrass Brad and Angie,” an insider said.
“Justin hates this, being dragged around like a pawn in her PR game, basically,” their source added. “It’s a huge source of tension between them.”
Aniston and Theroux were spotted having dinner five days after news of Pitt and Jolie’s split came out. The Daily Mail Online shared photos of the A-listers leaving The Smile restaurant in Manhattan. She was seen clasping his hand while he leads the way.
A few days before the Horrible Bosses star was seen on a dinner date, Us Weekly reported that she left Los Angeles because she’s being hounded by the media. The paparazzi all wanted to get her comment regarding the Brangelina divorce drama. According to a source, Jennifer thinks that what happened to her ex is his own karma for cheating on her.
“She always got the sense that something would happen with [Pitt and Jolie] eventually,” an insider said. “She didn’t feel that Angelina was truly the one who Brad was meant to stay with. She always felt that Angelina was too complex for him. He’s a pretty simple guy.”
Despite what the 52-year-old actor did to her, Aniston allegedly never wished for his marriage to end. However, she admits feeling satisfied that they have split up. These reports were never confirmed by the actress’ rep so until now she remains quiet about her ex-husband’s troubled relationship.
While the media continue to hound Jennifer for her official statement, there have been many reports of her saying things about her ex which apparently aren’t true. This probably got Justin upset as he finally speaks up on behalf of his wife.
“There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite. But I think a lot of people do because people buy it,” Theroux told Business Insider.
“But there are bigger things to b—- about,” he added. “It’s shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world.”
The Leftovers actor refused to talk about the breakup of the Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars, but he couldn’t resist talking about their six children. Maybe he can relate to what those kids will be going through since he experienced the same thing when he was younger.
“As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children, and that’s all you can really say,” he said. “It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time — that’s horrible.”
The Brangelina drama may have affected the marriage of Aniston and Theroux. There were even reports that Brad is planning to win back his ex-wife now that he is single again. A source revealed to NW magazine that the former husband and wife have never completely moved on from each other.
“He’s always been the one who got away for Jen. She always has – and always will- love him,” an insider said.
The latest report probably got Justin so angry that he threw shade at the award-winning actor. He posted a graffiti wall art on Instagram that showed a girl biting off her middle finger. On her background were words cursing different issues and that include Brad’s name.
To avoid the controversy, he added the hashtag that he isn’t shading anyone because he is not 11-years-old. While Jennifer Aniston remains silent, which kept people guessing if she is heading for divorce or not, her husband Justin Theroux has been very vocal and he seems not amused with the tabloid reports.
