A tabloid claims Jennifer Aniston “can’t move on” from Justin Theroux and it’s the reason she hasn’t found a new romance since their split. The story is totally untrue. Gossip Cop can debunk it.

“Jen Stuck On Justin” reads a headline in the latest issue of OK! The accompanying article quotes a “source” as saying, “She’s been out with several guys, but nothing’s really clicked for her, and she doesn’t want to rush into anything.” The magazine goes on to say the main reason the Friends star hasn’t found love is that she’s still “hopelessly stuck” on her ex-husband.

Aniston and Theroux are still great friends, and he even attended her annual Friendsgiving celebration in Los Angeles last month. The alleged insider, however, maintains that the actor got “super flirty” with her at the party, and made a point of complimenting “her outfits and hair.”

From there, the unknown tipster says Aniston’s pals are worried that her friendship with Theroux “may be doing more harm than good.” The seemingly phony source adds, “It’s hampering her from seeing other guys. What doesn’t help is how Justin really dangles the carrot when they hang out, which could be why Jen can’t seem to move on. There’s a big part of Jen that would love to reunite with Justin. But here friends are worried that she’s putting all her eggs in one basket – and is going to wind up disappointed all over again.”

The tabloid’s phony report was written simply because Theroux joined Aniston at her Friendsgiving dinner, which was attended by many of her famous pals, including Courteney Cox, Jimmy Kimmel and Jason Bateman. The ex-spouses remain on very good terms, but there’s no romantic tension between them. Aniston herself said on The Howard Stern Show in October that she’s not dating and is “very, very busy” with work. The actress is focused on her career, which is the primary reason she’s not interested in getting back into the dating world. It has nothing to do with being “stuck” on Theroux.

Gossip Cop reached out to a source close to the situation, who confirms that the magazine’s report is nonsense. Last year, OK! painted a very different picture of the actress’s relationship with her ex. The magazine made up a story about Aniston breaking down in tears after running into Theroux at a restaurant. That article said The Morning Show star was “very upset” by the mere sight of her ex. That premise wasn’t true either, but it’s also completely contradictory to this latest one.

Shortly after the exes split in early 2018, OK! falsely claimed Aniston had dumped Theroux for Brad Pitt. That story was clearly absurd. The tabloid has zero insight into what’s transpired following the ex-couple’s breakup, or where they stand today.
