It’s been 14 years since Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt separated due to “irreconcilable differences” (whatever TF that means), and I am still feeling the pain. But the rumor mill has continued to turn ever since that day. While talk has been around since September that they were canoodling and so were their exes, Angelina Jolie and Justin Theroux, new evidence has been found that further verifies their relationship. While it does not directly confirm the theory that the legendary late ’90s, early 2000s couple is back together, it definitely doesn’t deny it. We’ve come a long way from the “I Hate Rachel Green” club and honestly, I am here for it. So if you want to know the facts, specifically what Pitt had to say about it, read on so you can be the most up to date on the Jennifer Aniston-Brad Pitt relationship status.
Back in 1998, Aniston and Pitt went on their first date. How did the two meet? They were set up by their agents. If you can think of anything more Hollywood, please let me know. They tried to keep their relationship quiet, but that obvs didn’t work so well. A year later, in September of 1999, the couple made their first public appearance at the Emmy Awards. Two months later, the couple announced their engagement. In July, the couple got hitched in a Malibu ceremony.
In May of 2004, the plot thickened when Pitt starred in Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie. In January of 2005, Pitt and Aniston call it quits. Since then, the two both re-married and got divorced, Pitt to Jolie, and Aniston to Theroux.
Ever since Aniston announced her split from Theroux, people have been questioning whether it had anything to do with Pitt’s separation. Especially since she admitted to keeping notes from Pitt during her marriage to Theroux just days after announcing her separation. While the two relationships ~seem~ mutually exclusive, no one really knows in Hollywood. There’s a TON of double-dipping, if you know what I mean. But a year after ending her marriage, Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday with a star-studded party. And guess who was one of the A-listers spotted? Brad Pitt.
The Newest Rumor
But wait, there’s more. A brave paparazzi asked Pitt what we’ve all been dying to know. I would have asked him myself but I lost his number. Ugh. But anyway, when the actor was walking to his car in L.A. on Friday, this brave soul asked, “I gotta ask you, everyone wants to know, are you and Jen getting back?”
Pitt casually laughed off the question and said, “Oh, my God.” I mean, that isn’t a no, right?
During an interview with Bazaar published on Monday, Aniston was asked if she was dating. Well, they actually asked if she was on OkCupid, a rather strange choice of framing a question but whatevs. Regardless, she quickly denied it. “Am I on OkCupid? No. I have zero time, to be honest. My focus has been on the show, so dating has not been one of my first priorities. I feel like whatever [romance] looks like, it will present itself, and it’s not about seeking it out, you know?” said Aniston.
Since they are both single, there’s no time like the present to rekindle their love. Let me know in the comments if you ship Paniston (or Anitt …?).
