Did Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have an â€śexplosive showdownâ€ť over Brad Pitt? A new report claims the estranged spouses recently met up at her home and battled it out. Gossip Cop, however, can bust the seemingly made-up story.
As widely reported, Aniston and Theroux both attended a birthday party for Jimmy Kimmelâ€™s son earlier this month. Now New Idea is reporting that prior to the bash, the exes had an â€śexplosive showdown as they came face-to-face for the first time in Los Angeles.â€ť The magazine specifically claims the incident went down when â€śJustin collected the rest of his possessions from their Bel Air mansion,â€ť where â€śthe encounter turned ugly with Jen ending up inconsolable.â€ť
â€śThe meeting ended up in an explosive showdown,â€ť a so-called â€śsourceâ€ť is quoted as saying, before maintaining Theroux is â€śangry Jenâ€™s now with Brad so soon after they split.â€ť The supposed snitch further contends, â€śHe reminded her of her closeness to Brad and how distant he felt from her due to her renewed friendship with her ex-husband.â€ť The alleged tipster goes on to claim Theroux was joined by a â€śteam of movers,â€ť as well as a â€śmember of his legal team,â€ť and that â€śJen broke down when she saw how cold and official Justin was being.â€ť
Amid the purported dispute, the magazine alleges Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney gave Aniston and Theroux separate â€śtime slotsâ€ť to ensure they didnâ€™t â€śclashâ€ť at their sonâ€™s birthday party, which only further upset the actress. â€ś[They] were always Jenâ€™s friends first and foremost, so she felt incredibly betrayed knowing theyâ€™d not only invited Justin but given them shifts to adhere to,â€ť contends the purported insider, who claims Aniston was in a â€śterrible stateâ€ť when she arrived and believed her pals â€śwere taking sides and talking about her behind her back.â€ť
The outletâ€™s questionable â€śsourceâ€ť adds, â€śJenâ€™s fuming with Justin and their face-to-face meetingâ€¦ only made things worse, and sheâ€™s out to get justice for how heâ€™s treated her.â€ť In fact, the publication asserts Aniston â€śplans to ruin his reputation and bring him down,â€ť and that their divorce is â€śset to be one of the worst Hollywood has ever seen.â€ť Notably, though, not one reputable media outlet has reported anything about Aniston and Theroux having an â€śuglyâ€ť breakup and being â€śat each otherâ€™s throats,â€ť as maintained here. Nor has any credible publication similarly alleged they recently had a â€śshowdownâ€ť that left Aniston wanting â€śrevenge.â€ť
Itâ€™s also telling that itâ€™s not said just how she supposedly plans to â€śruinâ€ť Therouxâ€™s reputation and â€śbring him down.â€ť Thereâ€™s also a blatant falsehood: Aniston is not â€śnow withâ€ť Pitt nor do they have a â€śrenewed friendshipâ€ť that interfered with her marriage. On the contrary, their reps have confirmed to Gossip Cop on multiple occasions that they have not and are not reconciling. People also reported that Aniston and Pitt havenâ€™t seen one another in a long time and â€śarenâ€™t in regular contact.â€ť It makes no sense then to allege she and Aniston had a â€śshowdownâ€ť over her ex-husband.
It should also be noted that in a story on Aniston and Theroux both being at the Kimmel event, People said Aniston is â€śdoing well.â€ť That belies the premise that Aniston is â€śinconsolable.â€ť They did attend the function at different times, but that wasnâ€™t because of a â€śshowdownâ€ť or their pals choosing sides.
Gossip Cop is also told on the record by Therouxâ€™s rep that this supposed â€śshowdownâ€ť never happened. And considering the claim is coming from the same tabloid that falsely alleged Aniston was pregnant and adopting last fall, its sketchy reporting is not to be trusted.
