Are Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie Really Feuding Over Brad Pitt?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still dealing with the fallout from their difficult split, and this time, the tabloids have a new story to run with.

Just how much truth is there to this story? Read on to discover exactly what’s going on between the trio and whether or not fans can expect to see Pitt and Aniston back together in the near future.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were Hollywood’s ‘golden couple’

It all started in 1998 when Pitt and Aniston went on their first date. Pitt was Hollywood’s newest star while Aniston was making waves on television as the star of the popular sitcom, Friends. By late 1999, the pair were engaged, and fans couldn’t get enough of their favorite “it” couple. Pitt and Aniston tied the knot in 2000 and, for four years, seemed as happy as could be. 

However, while Pitt was filming the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, rumors surfaced that he and his co-star, the bombshell actress Jolie, were hooking up behind the scenes. Only months later, Pitt and Aniston announced their split. Immediately following their separation, Pitt and Jolie went public as a couple. 

Angelina Jolie ultimately divorced Brad Pitt

Pitt and Jolie went on to have a large family, with both adopted and biological children. They got married in 2014 after a decade together. But merely two years after their wedding, Jolie filed for divorce. While the couple has kept the real reason for their split tightly guarded, many have speculated that Pitt’s drinking contributed to the divorce. It has been a contentious few years for Pitt and Jolie, as they have fought for custody of their six children. 

Aniston has also long since moved on from the drama, marrying actor Justin Theroux in August 2016. Their marriage was also ill-fated, and in early 2018, Aniston and Theroux announced that they were separating. With both Pitt and Aniston newly single, fans that had followed the couple for years kept waiting and hoping for them to reunite.

Will Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston really reunite?

While it’s easy to imagine that Aniston was furious with Jolie at one point, the truth of the matter is that she has long since moved on from the drama surrounding her and Pitt’s separation. Recent reports have claimed that Jolie and Aniston are both so obsessed with Pitt that they are actively feuding with each other and have been for some time.

In fact, the two don’t communicate with each other at all, according to Gossip Cop, and have no feud. Aniston is still a successful movie and film actress while Jolie has dived into her charitable work following her split from Pitt. 

As for the long-standing rumor that Pitt and Aniston could get back together, that seems to be nothing more than fan speculation. While it is true that Pitt and Aniston have reconnected after years of minimal or no contact, and Pitt even attended Aniston’s 50th birthday party earlier this year, the two are definitely not dating. It seems highly unlikely that they would rekindle a romantic relationship considering everything that has happened in the past between them, but after all, it is Hollywood, and stranger things have happened. Still, for now, fans shouldn’t expect to see the “golden couple” on red carpets together.
