Brad Pitt Back In Touch With Ex Jennifer Aniston Following Angelina Split

Brad Pitt is in contact with former flame Jennifer Aniston.

The two have reportedly been texting again following the actor’s split from Angelina Jolie.

The 53-year-old actor divorced from Jen way back in 2005 after being married for five years.

He was soon seen hooking up with Hollywood hottie Angelina Jolie whom he met on set of Mr & Mrs Smith, fuelling rumours that Pitt left Aniston for her.

Brad even admitted in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2008 that he fell in love with Angelina whilst filming, and this was seven months before him and Jen officially parted ways.

But over ten years later, and amid a nasty divorce settlement, Brad has reportedly been texting his ex-wife Jennifer and turning to her for support.

According to a source close to the star, the Ocean’s Eleven actor tracked down Aniston‘s phone number in the weeks following the breakup from Jolie.

He got it through a ‘tangled web of contacts’ so he could wish her happy birthday, on February 11.

The insider reported to US Weekly, saying,

They started talking once he wished her a happy birthday. Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.

Brad has confided in the Friends actress about his feelings amid the very turbulent split from Angelina and the battle for custody over their six kids.

Whilst those of us who always saw Brad and Jen as the ultimate Hollywood couple might be secretly happy about the news, their text exchanges prove to be nothing more than just friendly.

Jen is happily married to actor Justin Theroux, who treated her to a luxurious break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for both her birthday and Valentine’s Day celebrations.

The source confirmed that Justin has no worries over Brad and Jen exchanging messages, saying,

Justin is okay with them being friends. [He understands] Jen just wants to be nice.

Brangelina shocked everyone when they announced their separation in September of last year, after being together for 12 years.

The pair have since agreed to keep the details of their divorce and custody battle private.
