The drama continues as more interesting details continue emerge regarding the breakup of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux.
Two years ago, Theroux reportedly found love notes written by his wife’s ex-husband, Brad Pitt, which she had saved from when they were still an item, Us Weekly reports.
“He stumbled upon old Post-it notes Brad had written,” a source told the magazine. “Sweet little Post-its like, ‘You looked nice tonight’ or ‘Miss you already.’”
Allegedly, the discovery of those notes had a drastic effect on Aniston and Theroux’s relationship.
“Jen assured him they weren’t a big deal, but Justin wasn’t thrilled … Justin had moments of insecurity like that.”
Aniston and Theroux had been much talked about tabloid fodder since they began dating. The two met on the set of “Tropic Thunder” in 2008 and began dating in 2011. After several years of courtship, and constant tabloid attention, Theroux and Aniston wed in 2015. But on Feb. 15, they announced that they were separating.
In a statement to the press, Aniston and Theroux indicated that their separation was likely headed to divorce.
“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” they said.
According to the released statement, Aniston and Theroux decided to confirm their split in order to avoid any tabloid speculation.
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation,” the statement reads. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of the last year.”
In the two-and-a-half years they were married, Theroux and Aniston maintained a positive public image, filled with loving comments about one another.
“[Jen] is a proper badass. She has lived through a lot of bullshit,” Theroux told The Sunday Times in 2016, per Us Weekly. “Many people would have crumbled under some of the stresses that may have been put on her. I’m very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself. So, in a weird way, it’s an honor to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she’s amazing.”
In April of that same year, Aniston told Entertainment Tonight how much she cherished her man.
“I got a good one — a very sweet, kind man … I’m very peaceful,” Aniston said. “I literally wake up every day and feel very lucky. I feel very fortunate.”
