Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are putting an end to their 2 and half years of marriage.
The ex-couple announced their separation in a joint statement yesterday insisting that they remain best of friends despite having to go their separate ways as a couple.
The statement read:
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.
We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly.
Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.”
Before her marriage to Justin in August 2015, the 49-year-old actress was married to actor Brad Pitt from 2000 up until 2005 when the actor got with Angelina Jolie.
Brad recently ended his marriage to Angelina, and following this new development with Jennifer’s own marriage, conspiracy theories are already flying about.
Is there going to be a Brad and Jen reunion? Time will tell.
