Almost 14 years after their very public split, Hollywood A-listers Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were seen hugging at Jen’s 50th birthday bash at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles last weekend.
In the latest issue of US Weekly, an eyewitness reveals that Brad seemed hesitant to embrace his ex-wife in front of her friends and loved ones as all eyes were on him.
An insider explained that Brad agreed to attend the party because he wanted to support and celebrate Jennifer.
While Brad’s surprise appearance may have been a shock to some, according to sources close to the two, the former power couple have been getting in touch with each other since Brad and Angelina Jolie’s split in 2016, and they’ve been friends for the past three years.
Brad apparently reached out to Jen when her mother, former model Nancy Dow passed away, four months before his split from Angie Cosmopolitan reports. “Brad contacted Jen after her mom died, and she was touched that he knew what a difficult time it was,” the source said.
Though Jennifer’s marriage to actor Justin Theroux is also over, a source made it clear to People that while the former couple are single and chat now and again, hopes of a romantic reconciliation are not on the cards.
