Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been together for a while now, and since they haven’t gotten married and/or pregnant, the tabloids are officially on breakup watch. This week’s “they’re dunzo” story comes from Star (via HollywoodLife.com), which claims that Jennifer gave Justin an ultimatum after a “romantic dinner” on July 11.
“Jen said, ‘I need a commitment, and I need it now,'” an “insider” tells the mag. But she didn’t get the answer she hoped for: “Instead of dropping down to one knee and confessing his undying love, Justin reportedly shrugged his shoulders.” How incredibly mature of him.
“That was the moment the writing was on the wall for Jen. It crystalized in her mind that Justin isn’t the one for her. … Justin pleaded for a second chance, but for her the love is gone,” Star‘s snitch says.
But Justin’s nonchalant response to the ultimatum isn’t the only thing bothering Jennifer. According to Star, “Jen never fully trusted Justin” because he insisted on remaining friendly with his ex-girlfriend, Heidi Bivens. During Jennifer and Justin’s relationship, he and Heidi were still communicating without the Emmy winner’s knowledge, and “she started getting suspicious.”
“To give her closure, Jen even had someone following Justin in New York while she was away [writer’s note: wow, that’s slightly stalker-ish],” a “friend” tells Star. “He got together with Heidi within days of Jen leaving. It seems like Justin couldn’t wait to be rid of Jen so he could cut loose.”
Because this is coming from Star, it would be pretty easy to write it off as totally made up. But there have been rumors for months that there is trouble in JustJen paradise. The two haven’t been seen together in a few weeks, and he hasn’t visited her on the set of the movie she’s currently filming in North Carolina. Plus, the British tabloids are also claiming that the pair might be over — and that Jennifer isn’t happy about Justin’s continued friendship with Heidi. Where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire, so maybe these two aren’t officially kaput yet, but there’s a good chance a breakup announcement could be coming soon.
