Jennifer Aniston, 49, and Justin Theroux, 46, announced their split on Thursday afternoon. The pair, who were married for two-and-a-half years and were a couple for seven years, said their mutual decision was “lovingly made” at the end of last year. Justin and Jennifer began dating in 2011. They tied the knot in a secret ceremony on August 5, 2015, in the couple’s Los Angeles home.
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.”
The statement continued, “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.”
Now that Brad Pitt and Jennifer are both single, fans are freaking out on Twitter about a possible reunion. Wouldn’t that be an interesting development? The couple were married for five years before they divorced in 2005.
