Jennifer Aniston doesn’t harbor any ill will toward her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, but that’s not to say she might not feel somewhat satisfied upon learning about Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split. Sources tell Us Weekly that the Friends alum, who was married to Pitt prior to his romance with Jolie, sees the By the Sea stars’ failed marriage somewhat as karma. Find out more in the video above, and detailed below!
According to an insider, the Mother’s Day actress, 47, said, “Yeah, that’s karma for you!” while discussing the news with a longtime pal.
“She always got the sense that something would happen with them eventually,” the insider tells Us, noting that she did believe Pitt loved the Oscar-winning actress. “She didn’t feel that Angelina was truly the one who Brad was meant to stay with. She always felt that Angelina was too complex for him. He’s a pretty simple guy.”
A second source tells Us that while Aniston “admittedly feels sort of satisfied about Brad and Angelina’s split,” she also “never wanted this for them or wished this on them.”
“Jen does wish Brad luck and the best. She feels like she’s happy, and she wants him to be happy too,” the second insider explains. “Jen does not hold on to any negativity from her marriage to Brad.”
Aniston has since moved on and married Justin Theroux in August 2015, 10 years after her split from Pitt. The World War Z star and Jolie, who went public with their romance following Pitt and Aniston’s January 2005 split and their on-set Mr. and Mrs. Smith romance, tied the knot after almost a decade together in August 2014.
On Monday, September 19, the By the Sea actress filed for divorce from the actor, citing irreconcilable differences. According to sources, the pair are calling it quits because they butted heads over how to raise their kids, among other issues.
"They fought a lot over the years and disagreed about many things,” the insider explained.
