Is Jennifer Aniston upset with Reese Witherspoon because she suspects her Morning Show co-star is crushing on Brad Pitt? That's the absurd claim in one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
A few weeks ago, Mindy Kaling shared a photo from Pitt's GQ spread on her Instagram page. This led to Witherspoon commenting, "Oh, dear," along with a heart-eyed emoji. According to the Globe, Aniston is furious with her co-star for "swooning" over her ex-husband on social media.
"It took around 20 seconds to get back to Jen, who was insulted," an anonymous insider tells the outlet. "Sure, it might look like harmless fun, but Jen felt it was very disrespectful. Jen is annoyed and now suspects her friend has been lusting after Brad all along."
The alleged source goes on to say that Aniston was particularly bothered because she's been quietly reconnecting with Pitt, and "they could very well come out publicly as a couple in the near future." The seemingly phony tipster adds, "There are very few people in town that Jen trusts and, well, Reese now isn't one of them. She's going to be watching this one from now on!"
Nothing about the tabloid's article is remotely true. For starters, it's all based on the word of an unknown insider, but Aniston's own spokesperson calls it "absurd and completely false." The actress isn't the last bit upset with Witherspoon for commenting on a photo of Pitt, nor does she believe her co-star is pining for her ex-husband. In reality, Witherspoon is happily married to talent agent Jim Toth, with whom she shares a child.
Meanwhile, Aniston and Pitt aren't on the verge of rekindling a romance. Separate reps for both stars have assured Gossip Cop countless time that they're not getting back together. When it comes to Aniston, the Globe is trying to create a feud with Witherspoon and a reconciliation with Pitt. Neither scenario is realistic.
It should be noted, Aniston and Witherspoon have been pals since playing sisters on Friends nearly 20 years ago. The two actress have also praised each other in all of their recent interviews promoting The Morning Show. There are absolutely no issues between the longtime friends and co-stars, let alone one involving Pitt.
Additionally, the Globe is the same tabloid that Gossip Cop busted in March for falsely claiming Aniston and Pitt had secretly eloped in Mexico. This latest article makes no mention of the two having tied the knot earlier this year. In fact, it even dials back the fake concept of them being back together, simply saying they might go public soon.
Also, there have been so many wrong rumors about Aniston and Witherspoon feuding that Gossip Cop dedicated an entire article to the subject just last month. This latest take on the subject, which drags Pitt into the fold, can be added to that list. It's complete nonsense.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
