As previously reported, Aniston, 49, and Theroux, 46, announced their separation on Thursday, February 15. The pair announced their engagement in August 2012 and tied the knot in three years later.

“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 pair told Us Weekly in a joint statement. “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.”

Fans took to Twitter to react to the news, and some are “heartbroken” over it.

“Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have separated… i feel like my heart is actually breaking,” one fan tweeted.

“I’m sorry but HOW can one not love Jennifer Aniston,” another fan wrote.

One user tweeted, “I don’t know about you, but I personally feel heartbroken for #JenniferAniston.”
