Jennifer Aniston’s husband, Justin Theroux, shared an odd post on social media earlier this week.
Amid rumors regarding Jennifer Aniston’s possible reunion with Brad Pitt, whose wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce in September, Justin Theroux took to Instagram where he posted a photo which featured the message, “F**k Brad Pitt.”
Although Theroux’s message also included a number of other phrases which also started with the word “F**k,” it was the comment about Pitt which caught many by surprise — and understandably so.
Since Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband’s divorce was announced, the Friends actress has been tied to rumors claiming she may have been involved in some way. In fact, Jennifer Aniston faced rumors of communication with Pitt prior to the announcement of his divorce from Jolie.

According to an Entertainment Tonight report on November 1, Jennifer Aniston’s husband’s Instagram post was an art piece by graffiti artist Nick Flatt, which featured a woman sticking her middle finger in her mouth. Behind her, a mural included numerous messages, including “f**k cocaine, “f**k haters,” “f**k politics” and others.
Although the message spoke of more than just Pitt, Jennifer Aniston’s husband ultimately chose to address rumors of a possible diss with a hash tag that read, “And NO this post is not ‘shading’ anyone because I’m not 11 years old, I mean, seriously… #okaymaybepickles.”
Theroux also added the hash tags, “#currentelectionmood #berlin #graffiti #f**kingnickflatt.”
While Jennifer Aniston has remained completely silent in regard to her ex-husband’s divorce news, Theroux addressed the issue during an interview with the Business Insider and spoke of how the split would impact Pitt and Jolie’s six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
“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,” Theroux said. “It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that’s horrible.”

Prior to Theroux’s Instagram post, Jennifer Aniston was accused of embarking on a secret rendezvous with her ex-husband in New York City over the summer, weeks prior to Pitt and Jolie’s divorce. At the time, a Radar Online report suggested there was video evidence of the former couple sneaking into a hotel together but didn’t share proof of any such thing.
“[Jennifer Aniston] has been talking to Brad,” dished an insider. “She’s told friends it would be a dream to get back together with him. The truth is, she’s been secretly waiting for him to leave Angelina.”
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were married from 2000 to 2005, when Aniston filed for divorce amid rumors of an on-set affair between Pitt and Jolie, who were filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith during the last several months of Pitt and Aniston’s marriage. While Pitt and Jolie didn’t initially confirm the rumors, they went public with their relationship just weeks after Jennifer Aniston filed for divorce and one year later, their first biological child was born.
For 12 years, Pitt and Jolie continued with their relationship, but on September 19, Jolie filed for divorce, which reportedly left Jennifer Aniston quite excited.
“She’s just happy to hear he’s divorcing because she always held on to a little hope,” said an alleged friend of the actress. “He’s the love of her life, and she’s never really gotten over him.”
Jennifer Aniston tried to move on with Theroux, the source continued, and now, she’s “trapped between a rock and a hard place, because she does love Justin — but not as much as Brad!”
