It’s official, folks:
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have finally reunited.
We mean this literally, although now nearly every citizen out there is wondering: Might we soon mean this romantically?
Granted, this question has been posed over and over and then over again over the years.
We’re not just conjuring it up out of nowhere this time, however.
Pitt was spotted on Saturday night outside the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles… where his famous ex-wife was being feted at the time for her 50th birthday.
Us Weekly and TMZ have both confirmed this surprising piece of news, with the latter writing that Pitt tried to avoid the paparazzi upon arriving for the party.
Others on hand for the milestone occasion included:
Robert Downey, Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Rande Gerber, Pharrell Williams, Keith Richards, Gwyneth Paltrow, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, George and Amal Clooney, David Arquette, Courtney Cox and Barbra Streisand.
But let’s face it: Celebrity gossip followers only care that Pitt somehow snagged an invite.
This begs many questions, of course:
Who extended the invite?
For how long have Pitt and Aniston been back in touch?
Just how close are they these days?
And, naturally, might they someday get back together?
This last question was nothing but wild speculation just a few years ago, but a lot has changed since then.
Pitt is now divorced from Angelina Jolie, for whom Pitt left Aniston in 2005 after five years of marriage.
Moreover, Aniston is now divorced from Justin Theroux after just two years of wedded semi-bliss.
As you can see by the cover stories above and below, tabloids have jumped on this topic over the past several months, wondering whether Aniston and Pitt – both now single – could actually start bumping uglies once again.
That’s a slang term for having sex.
Upon her split from Theroux, reports circulated that Theroux actually found love notes that Aniston had saved from her time with Pitt.
“He stumbled upon old Post-it notes Brad had written,” a source told Us Weekly last year. “Sweet little Post-its like, ‘You looked nice tonight’ or ‘Miss you already.”
Pitt and Jolie, meanwhile, recently agreed upon terms for their divorce settlement, following many months of arguing over major custody issues involving their six kids.
Aniston and Theroux never had any children and, by all accounts, broke up pretty easily and amicably.
Aniston told Elle in an interview in December that she considered her two marriages to have “been very successful,” despite both ending in divorce.
“When they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore,” she explained.
That’s a very mature attitude, don’t you think?
We commend Aniston for having it and we admire her as a person, but we also have one request:
PLEASE GET BACK TOGETHER WITH PITT!
