I honestly wouldn't mind if Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt got back together. There I said it. I'm putting it out in the universe lol— David Rodriguez (@dnr034) February 16, 2018
But some fans are against the idea because they feel Aniston deserves better.
In case you all forgot: Brad Pitt fell in love with another woman and begun a relationship with her while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. He left her to be with someone else. Why would anyone want her to get back together with him?— Alina (@__LinaGarcia) February 16, 2018
Jennifer and Justin announced their split days after it was reported that the Friends alum celebrated her birthday without her now estranged husband. Their statement confirming the split reads:
"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," the statement reads. "We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. 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. 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."
The couple began dating in May 2011 and were engaged in August 2012.
