Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are talking again following his split with Angelina Jolie, Page Six has confirmed.
The former couple recently connected again when Pitt texted Aniston, who is now married to Justin Theroux, to wish her a happy birthday. She turned 48 on Feb. 11.
A source close to Brad told us, “They have been texting and have been in touch. There has just been some friendly back and forth, nothing more than that.”
Us Weekly reported that Pitt has been confiding in ex-wife Aniston amid his bitter divorce with Jolie. The magazine said, “Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.”
But another Hollywood source said of Pitt and Aniston’s renewed connection, “It isn’t romantic at all, they are friends again. They made it seem like Brad was running after Jen, and that isn’t true. It is nothing more than they are back in touch with each other.”
