Hollywood power couple Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are over.
According to BBC, the couple, who reportedly met on set of Wanderlust, separated at the end of last year and are only telling their fans now. Although they did not state the reason for the dissolution after two years of marriage, they noted that the decision was “lovingly made”, and that they intend to continue their “cherished friendship”.
“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” they said in their statement, adding, “Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly.”
“Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another,” the statement concluded.
The duo got married in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles in August 2015 after four years of dating.
Before Theroux, Aniston was previously married to actor Brad Pitt for five years before their married packed up in 2005, and he moved on to marry Angelina Jolie. That marriage has also failed.
