Brad reaches out… here we go a-Jen
BRAD PITT has reportedly been using his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston as a shoulder to cry on since his acrimonious split with Angelina Jolie.
The unlikely rekindling of their relationship came about when the Fight Club actor went to some lengths to bury the hatchet by tracking down her number through a ‘tangled web of contacts’, apparently.
‘They started talking once he wished her a happy birthday,’ a source told US Weekly.
The pair have been texting ever since, apparently, with the content of their messages getting steadily more serious.
‘[Brad] has confided in Jen,’ the source said. ‘Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.’
And what does Jen’s current partner, hubby Justin Theroux, make of all this?
‘Justin is OK with them being friends,’ the source said. ‘[He knows] Jen just wants to be nice.’
Brad and Jen split back in 2005 after five years of marriage, with Brad’s obvious chemistry with his Mr And Mrs Smith co-star Angelina widely believed to be to blame.
