Jennifer Aniston has reportedly been leaning on ex Gerard Butler in the wake of her split from Justin Theroux.
Jennifer and Justin announced their split after two years of marriage and seven years together last week, and a source has since claimed she’s been using ex Gerard Butler to help her through the tough time.
The pair dated back in 2010 after starring in the film The Bounty Hunter together.
‘They’ve been talking non-stop,’ they told The Star. ‘She isn’t going to rush headlong into a new romance with anyone right away, but she’s really touched that Gerard is doing everything possible to console her.
‘When she’s ready, there’s no doubt he’ll be at her side.’
They added there is definitely no going back for her and Brad.
The actress, 49 and her husband Justin, 46, announced their split in a statement that claimed it was ‘mutual’ and the decision was ‘lovingly made at the end of last year.’
The statement, released by Aniston’s publicist Stephen Huvane, said: ‘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.’
The couple wed in 2015 at their Bel Air home. The ceremony was apparently so low-key that their guests didn’t know they were attending a wedding. Jen and Justin told friends that they were celebrating Justin’s upcoming birthday, but TMZ reported at the time that ‘the couple made the big reveal once all guests arrived…and Jen apologised for tricking everyone’.
