Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are facing seemingly endless rumors about a possible reunion after she separated from Justin Theroux and he split from Angelina Jolie. But rather than Aniston and Pitt spotted meeting up, it’s Justin and Angelina Jolie who reportedly were seen dining together to discuss their ex-spouses, according to New Idea.

“While the world is focused on Brad and Jen, it seems their exes [Angelina Jolie and Justin Theroux] have been busy striking up an unlikely alliance in New York.”

The alleged date that Theroux and Jolie enjoyed reportedly took place at Il Baco restaurant on Long Island. During what the magazine called a “shock hook-up,” Justin and Angelina were allegedly seen dining together. Brad Pitt’s and Jennifer Aniston’s estranged spouses reportedly were seated at a table in a quiet corner of the restaurant.

Jolie reportedly is aware of all the rumors about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston rekindling their romance. With that knowledge, Angelina was determined to learn what Justin knew about Brad and Jennifer’s relationship, added one of the sources.

“[Angelina Jolie] was keen to talk to Justin to find out what he knew about Jen and Brad’s new romance.”

Jolie reportedly set the agenda for her date with Theroux. The mom of six (Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Vivienne, Knox, and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt) wanted to focus on how she and Justin should “tackle” the situation with Brad and Jennifer, according to the insider.

“This was very much a strategy meeting for Ange, a chance for her to pick Justin’s brain and work out their next steps as exes,” summed up the source.

Angelina reportedly has told her friends that she’s not surprised that Jennifer Aniston’s marriage to Justin Theroux fell apart. A source quoted by New Idea claimed that Jolie always believed that Jennifer was “too dull” for Theroux. In contrast, Angelina admired Justin for his “edgy” intelligence, added the insider.

As the Inquisitr reported, Jolie allegedly never liked Jennifer Aniston, even before she began dating Pitt. Adding to the rumors of a feud between Jolie and Aniston, Angelina reportedly views Jennifer as “vanilla and shallow.” Moreover, after being portrayed as a “homewrecker” following Brad and Jen’s divorce, Jolie reportedly feels “a degree of vindication” that no one can blame her for Aniston and Theroux’s split.
