A story alleging Jennifer Aniston wants Justin Theroux to stop âhumiliatingâ her after their divorce announcement is made-up. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this manufactured report, which is riddled with a slew of verifiably inaccurate claims. Additionally, weâre told itâs âfalse.â
After relating how Theroux and Aniston noted in the statement about their split that they âlook forward to continuing our cherished friendship,â Life & Style maintains a so-called âsourceâ tells the tabloid that their parting ways is now âfar from amicable.â As widely reported in February, Aniston and Theroux also made clear in their split announcement that âgiven how the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent,â virtually everything being reported about them thatâs not directly from the two stars (and by extension their reps) is part of a âfictional narrative.â Curiously, the publication left out that section, and the reason may be because thatâs exactly what its story is.
According to its latest report, the outletâs unnamed, untraceable and possible nonexistent âsourceâ contends that Aniston recently âlit intoâ Theroux because âshe keeps seeing him out with young models and actresses.â The tabloidâs supposed insider claims the former âFriendsâ star told Theroux, âStop humiliating me.â Of course, the magazine doesnât mention when this purported argument took place or whether it was via phone, emails, text messages or in person. Nor does the publication explain how its alleged âsourceâ came into finding this out. And thatâs because none of this actually occurred.
The article then shifts into how Aniston feels Theroux âtraded her inâ for a number of younger actresses and models. Aniston, asserts the tabloidâs tipster, believes Theroux should have given âtheir relationship a bit of a mourning periodâ instead of âacting like a man who was just let out of prison.â The outlet lists Selena Gomez, Erika Cardenas, photographer Petra Collins, and Aubrey Plaza as among the women Theroux has been linked to and who have caused Aniston to feel âbetrayed.â
The story, which was picked up by the equally unreliable tabloid New Idea, is provably untrue for a variety of reasons. While Life & Style offers no evidence to back up its claim that the couple fought and Aniston told her ex to stop âhumiliating her,â Therouxâs rep went on the record to debunk this example of a âfictional narrative.â His spokesperson assures Gossip Cop the claims about Aniston and Therouxâs split being now âfar from amicableâ are âfalse.â Weâre further told by the rep there have been no arguments like the one claimed by the magazineâs alleged âsource.â
Equally significant is that, as Gossip Cop reported, Theroux is not dating Gomez. Additionally, as weâve noted in the past, heâs also not romantically involved Petra Collins. In fact, both their reps denied it on the record.
Also, Theroux is not dating his platonic gym friend Erika Cardenas. And talk about Plaza and Theroux being a couple has already been debunked, as well. Therefore, thereâs no reason for Aniston to feel âbetrayed.â Finally, as for the contention that Aniston feels her estranged husband should have given âtheir relationship a bit of a mourning period,â it was previously reported that Theroux was âheartbrokenâ over the split amidst untrue dating rumors.
Conclusion: The tabloid maintains Aniston lashed out at Theroux for âhumiliatingâ her by being seen with different women following their split, but offers no details about when, where, or how that alleged argument took place. And to back up its premise, the magazine listed a number of women with whom itâs been established heâs not romantically involved. Additionally, the publicationâs tale is predicated all on the word on an unknown âsource,â while Gossip Copâs fact-check is based on evidence, previously published reports, and Therouxâs own rep. Because of those reasons, weâve determined the outletâs story is untrue.
