CLAIM: Jennifer Aniston “Picks” Justin Theroux Over Sick Mom

Truth rating: 0

Ever since Jennifer Aniston began dating Justin Theroux, the tabloids have been working overtime to manufacture drama in the couple’s relationship.

So far, the mags have claimed they’re in couple’s therapy (false), at odds over Chelsea Handler (wrong) and fighting about Botox (b.s.), just to name a few blunders. It’s In Touch‘s turn this week, running a story with the headline “Jen Picks Justin Over Family,” which reports, “Jen has only seen her 75-year-old mom, Nancy, once in L.A. since she suffered a stroke in September.”

The tab says Nancy, who became estranged from her daughter years ago when she published a tell-all book, “must rely on her friends and a team of caretakers to nurse her back to health while Jen crisscrosses the country with Justin.” According to In Touch, Aniston basically ignores her mom. “It’s a tragic state of affairs,” one of the older woman’s neighbors allegedly tells the tabloid. “You only have one mom, after all!”

And In Touch only has one setting: scandal. The notion that Aniston has “picked” Theroux over her ailing mother is 100% untrue, despite what a single “neighbor” claims. A rep for Aniston tells Gossip Cop the allegation is “completely false”, pointing out that the actress has seen her mom “several times” since returning to Los Angeles last week.
