TAB: Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Are “Battling” Over His Brother

Truth rating: 0

Jennifer Aniston’s “joy of impending motherhood and marriage to Justin Theroux has been tempered by a brewing storm cloud over her fiancé’s insistence on making his younger brother the best man at their wedding,” begins a piece from Star. Uh… what impending motherhood?!

Anyway, the magazine claims that Theroux’s brother Sebastian “has a checkered history of substance abuse — something that raises a red flag with Jen.” “Jen’s sympathetic to his struggles,” a so-called “family friend” tells Star, “but I think it still makes her uncomfortable, and she’s butting heads with Justin about how large a part Sebastian will play in the proceedings.” So this “friend” just thinks it makes Aniston “uncomfortable,” but doesn’t actually know?

In any case, the mag goes on to say that while Sebastian is now “on the straight and narrow,” the actress “is still concerned,” especially since she’s supposedly “just now finding out” about the younger Theroux’s issues. Adds the supposed Star snitch, “I don’t think Jen can be fully comfortable with the idea that Justin hasn’t been totally forthcoming with her about the family she’s on the verge of marrying into.”

Enough. Star — which embarrassingly reported the couple had split days before they announced their engagement — is off-base once again. The notion that Aniston is only just learning about Theroux’s family is patently false, not to mention ridiculous. Furthermore, a source close to Theroux tells Gossip Cop that it is 100 percent untrue that the couple is fighting over his brother, dismissing Star’s claims as “complete nonsense.”
