Jennifer Aniston just can’t escape her past relationship.
Just hours after announcing her split from Justin Theroux on Thursday, fans quickly took to Twitter to comment on the fact that both Aniston and her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, are now single.
However, people shouldn’t expect a reunion anytime soon.
“They haven’t seen each other in ages,” a source told People magazine. “For well over a decade now they have lived totally separate lives and so not surprisingly, they have become totally different people than who they once were when they were together.”
Aniston and Pitt married in 2000, and divorced in 2005, as Pitt started to date Angelina Jolie. He and Jolie split in 2016, two years after they tied the knot. Pitt has yet to publicly date since his breakup from Jolie — which led many fans to hold out hope of an Aniston-Pitt reconciliation.
The source remained adamant that despite tabloid chatter, both Aniston and Pitt have completely moved on. “They broke up, and they did it because they had serious issues. They’re not stupid. They remember why it didn’t work.”
“They’ve been over each other for longer than they were ever together,” the source continued. “It is such ancient history.”
A source told ET in March 2017 that Pitt and Aniston had “been in touch,” following reports that the two texted after his divorce from Jolie.
“They are friends,” the source says of the pair. “They have been friendly back and forth.”
However, despite being on friendly terms, People‘s source says the pair “aren’t in regular contact, beyond an occasional text back and forth to wish each other the best when there’s been a new project or big event.”
The source also added that Aniston and Pitt have completely different lives now and a relationship wouldn’t work.
“Now you add six kids on his side and each of them having their own assorted battle scars into the mix? Forget it. It’s not going to happen.”
In November 2016, Aniston opened up about being “shamed” for her split from Pitt.
“My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed,” Aniston told Marie Claire. “It’s like, ‘Why are we only looking at women through this particular lens of picking us apart? Why are we listening to it?’ I just thought: I have worked too hard in this life and this career to be whittled down to a sad, childless human.”
