For over two decades, America’s had a full-on passion with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship—from their status as America’s golden couple through their separation and relationships with other people to their current status as friends. Let’s take a look back at their famous love story and the latest developments.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Relationship History:
It was 1998 and Rachel from ‘Friends’ started dating Hollywood’s most desirable actor. Jennifer and Brad’s agents were friends and they introduced the two. They started dating soon.
In 1999, they were spotted together at the Emmys, making the public go wild. One year later, Brad and Jennifer tied the knot in an extravagant wedding in Malibu. The 200 guests included many celebrities and Jennifer’s ‘Friends’ costars too.
“We just wanted to keep it special. Keep it ours,” Brad Pitt said.
Just five years after the fairy tale wedding, Brad and Jennifer separated. “We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate. For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media”, said the two in a statement.
The ‘tabloid reports’ that they were referring to was the rumor that Brad was cheating on Jennifer with Angelina Jolie. A few months later, Brad was spotted with Angelina, confirming the rumors.
Jennifer was not pleased and she was hurt after she said, “There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing.”
The same year, Brad and Jennifer’s divorce was finalized.
In 2008, Jennifer opened up about the alleged ‘Brangelina’ affair.
Angelina hinted that she and Brad were dating during the filming of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ in an interview. The movie was filmed before Brad and Jennifer’s split!
“There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” Jennifer said about Angelina’s interview. Soon, Brad and Jennifer went on their separate ways.
Brad married Angelina in 2014 and Jennifer married Justin Theroux in 2015. In 2016, Brad and Angelina divorced, while Jennifer announced separation from Justin in 2018.
Recently, Jennifer and Brad were seen meeting each other at the 2020 SAG Awards. A picture of their friendly encounter went viral on the internet.
A source close to the two stars told the media that Brad and Jennifer have gone on ‘at least five dates’. However, there’s been no official word from Brad or Jennifer confirming it. Meanwhile, OK Magazine recently claimed that Brad and Jennifer are set to confirm their relationship in a forthcoming interview.
Well, this might be just a made-up story and should be taken with a grain of salt. However, even though they have a rough history, it’s nice to see they are still friends.
