Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are not fighting over his “creepy pals,” despite a false report. One of the webloid’s claims the actress wants her husband to ditch his social circle, but the story is filled with inaccuracies. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.

RadarOnline has decided to capitalize on the sexual harassment controversy surrounding Hollywood by arbitrarily dragging Aniston and Theroux into the narrative. The site quotes an alleged source as saying, “Jen is really freaked out by all of the harassment stories around Hollywood and it’s led to a reality check when it comes to Justin and his oddball buddies like Terry Richardson, Danny Masterson, and even Louis C.K.,” all of whom have been accused of sexual misconduct and/or assault.

However, there’s nothing to indicate that Theroux has ever socialized with Masterson or C.K., or even personally knows them. As for Richardson, the controversial photographer attended the actor’s August 2015 wedding to Aniston, but he hasn’t been spotted with either of them since. Theroux and Richardson were frequently photographed together in New York City prior to 2015, but it appears they haven’t been as close over the past couple of years.

Still, the outlet’s supposed source continues, “These are all guys Justin seriously respected, but Jen’s demanding he have no association with them going forward. Justin likes to play up his edgy ‘street cred’ and his cool New York friends, but this is way more controversial than Jen would like.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that the couple isn’t battling over his social circle. Masterson and C.K. were randomly thrown into this phony story, while the actor’s connection to Richardson is just being exploited. It’s reasonable to believe that Aniston would want to distance herself from the photographer in light of the recent sexual assault allegations against him, but that’s not a point of contention between her and Theroux.
