Actress, Jennifer Aniston reportedly splits from husband over where they will live
By Sewe Ishola
Friends’ star, Jennifer Aniston is single again but that’s not news. What is news is the reason, she split from her ex-husband, Justin Theroux.
It was reported that one of the major factors in their break-up was the pair’s disagreement about where they should live.
The source reveals Theroux considers himself a New Yorker through and through, and previously lived in the Big Apple with his long-term girlfriend Heidi Bivens for 14 years before his meeting Aniston. Even after his marriage to the actress and the move to the West Coast, he kept a Greenwich Village pad in the city.
Aniston on the other hand has always seen Los Angeles as home, years after calling time on her five-year marriage to fellow actor, Brad Pitt.
Justin reportedly tried to integrate Jennifer into his New York lifestyle, with the couple even purchasing an apartment in the West Village, according to the source.
‘He really wanted her to be comfortable [in New York].
However, a lawsuit with one of their neighbours in 2017 – who reportedly antagonised the couple’s construction workers making renovations on their home – escalated the pair’s disagreement over where to nest.
As a result of Jen’s unhappiness, Theroux acquiesced and agreed to move across the country to Los Angeles but, while he continued to enjoy a bicoastal lifestyle, Jen did not.
Regardless of their love for each other, the source said their constant disagreement over where they should live drew a wedge between the pair, which resulted in them living two very different lifestyles.
Aniston and Theroux, who tied the knot in a secret ceremony at their home in Bel-Air, California in August 2015, announced their separation in a statement released to ET on Thursday.
The 49-year-old Friends star released a statement via a publicist, who told Associated Press the couple insist they still care very much about each other and will remain friends.
‘Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.’ The statement read.
