Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s marriage was not on good terms for a while, and finally, the duo has decided to separate their ways on mutual understanding.
The two themselves confirmed this in a statement to AFP yesterday. The former couple said in a statement released by Aniston’s publicist Stephen Huvane that:
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
The couple was supposed to keep this to themselves but then later decided to say it in public. They said:
“Given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.”
