Jennifer Aniston is reportedly living her best life by dating two guys at the same time
I don't think anyone's love life has fallen under as much intense scrutiny as Jennifer Aniston's. Seriously, ever since the mid-90s, the former Friends star hasn't been able to go on a lunch date to Denny's without the media collectively losing its mind over her relationship status. The drama first began back in 1998, when Jen entered into a high-profile dalliance with Brad Pitt - at the time, one of the most desired men in the world. Things got more serious, however, when Pitt proposed to her, and the couple tied the knot in a ceremony in 2000 in Malibu.
For a time, Brad and Jen were the definition of #couplegoals ... that was until disaster struck. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hooked up during the filming of the movie Mr and Mrs Smith, and in 2005 Brad and Jen announced their separation, divorcing later that year. Aniston was portrayed in the press as a jilted, broken-hearted victim, despite the fact that she appeared to have coped remarkably well with the breakup, even commenting in a 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter that "Nobody did anything wrong.... It was just like, sometimes things [happen]."
But now, new information has leaked about Jen's current relationship status, and if reports are true, then it sounds like she's dating two guys at once! US Weekly reports that the two suitors currently vying for her affections are very different people. The first dude has been described as a tech titan that a mutual friend introduced her to. An anonymous source claims that "He recently split from his wife and is trying to win over Jen."
The second lucky guy is apparently "an industry creative she met when they started working on a project together several months ago," according to a second source. Tech titan and industry creative aren't exactly Jennifer's Aniston's usual type; she tends to stick to fellow actors when wooing. However, apparently, her friends are very happy that Jen is back on the dating scene. “They can hardly keep it a secret when they’re so happy to see Jen moving on," a source said.
Jennifer Aniston was previously married to actor, director, and screenwriter Justin Theroux (the nephew of the travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux and cousin of documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux). In 2012 they got engaged and purchased a $22 million home in the Bel-Air neighbourhood of Los Angeles. The pair married in 2015 in a private ceremony at their new home, but three years later they announced their separation.
In an official statement, they said: "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." I'm glad to hear that Jen is seeking love again. Maybe we could see her on Tinder in the near future?
