Jennifer Aniston was reportedly angry and jealous of Justin Theroux’s affection with his longtime friend Naomi Watts, with a new report claiming those feelings may have been a factor in the couple’s split this week.
Aniston and Theroux this week confirmed the building rumors that they were getting a divorce, saying they made the mutual decision to split. They refrained from sharing many details about the relationship’s ending, and now celebrity gossip outlets are filling in the blanks with a series of stories alleging hurt feelings and fighting.
A new report from Radar Online claims that Jennifer Aniston was “upset” at how Justin Theroux shared an affectionate hug with Naomi Watts when attending an event in New York City. Cameras caught the two embracing, which was reportedly off-putting to Aniston. Theroux and Watts have been close since starring in the 2001 movie Mulholland Drive together.
While there are no confirmed reports about what led to the split between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, many of the reports have pointed to Aniston as the source of tension in the marriage. A previous report from Page Six claimed that Aniston was not as easygoing in private as she appeared in public and that she was increasingly unhappy in the marriage.
The report claimed that Aniston did not want to live in New York City, where Theroux preferred to live, and instead, wanted to stay in the privacy they found in Malibu. The report claimed that Aniston would rather stay with her small and close-knit group of friends and did not want the spotlight of living in Manhattan.
Another report claimed that Aniston was upset at Theroux’s constant partying, with an insider noting that he acted like a single man when he was away from Aniston.
There have been other reports speculating that Jennifer Aniston may have been reconnecting with ex Brad Pitt, who is also single after his marriage to Angelina Jolie fell apart. There are no solid reports to indicate this is true, however, even as many fans take to social media and express hopes that they might get back together.
