Ange & Justin’s shock getaway
So “uncool”! First Ange steals Jen’s man, now it’s her Mexican hideaway...
The idyllic celeb enclave of Cabo San Lucas was once Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s fave vacay destination. In fact, it was where the former couple took one last make-or-break holiday in December 2017 before announcing their split last February. But now Jen’s long-time love rival Angelina Jolie has swooped in and not only commandeered Jen’s beloved Mexican hotspot – but her former hubby Justin, too! Sources reveal that Ange and The Leftovers actor, who’ve reportedly been on a number of dates, recently took a private jet to Cabo, where they checked into Jen’s go-to hotel, Las Ventanas al Paraiso, under
“Mr and Mrs Smith”.
“They had difficulty keeping a straight face as they gave their aliases,” says the spy. “But they’re actually trying to keep their romance under wraps.”
“There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing,” Jennifer once quipped of ex Brad Pitt – after he famously fell for Angelina on the set of 2005’s Mr & Mrs Smith, then showed off his new romance in a cringe-worthy 1960s-style W magazine shoot with a bunch of kids a year later. But now Justin, 47, and Ange, 43, appear to be the ones missing sensitivity chips!
As Life & Style reports, Angelina – who dramatically filed for divorce from Brad in 2016 – sought out Jen’s latest ex in August under the guise of working on a project together.
Mad about the rumours that Jen, 49, and Brad, 55, had reunited – and frustrated that she’d always been painted as the bad guy in their love triangle – the actress wanted revenge. But during her “business” dinner in NYC with Justin, sparks unexpectedly flew.
“They’ve been secretly dating for a few months and their romance is heating up,” says the source. “To Angelina’s surprise, she’s actually fallen for Justin.”
From their penchant for tattoos to their quirky collections – vials of blood for her, bowls of human teeth for him (see page 29) – “they have more in common than Jen and Justin ever did,” shares the insider. “Angelina is just Justin’s type. She’s sexy, sophisticated and has a rock’n’roll streak.”
Breaking the rules
And Ange certainly threw caution to the wind when she set up camp in Jen’s favourite hotel in Cabo!
While a rep for Justin denies the vacation happened, a source insists the pair did enjoy a secret getaway to Las Ventanas.
“Their motives might be questionable,” notes the insider. “But they looked like a couple in love.”
And they certainly both have a thing for fellow actors. Angelina – whom a friend claims is currently “not dating and is focused on her kids” – counts Jonny Lee Miller, Billy Bob Thornton and, of course, Brad as exhusbands.
For his part, since his break-up from Jen, Justin has been linked to a bevy of Hollywood starlets, including Emma Stone, Selena Gomez and Olivia Munn. And while all three ladies are friends with Jen, Justin’s romance with Ange will no doubt sting the worst.
“Jen still doesn’t know about Justin and Angelina, but if she were to find out, she’d go absolutely ballistic,” says a source of the Dumplin’ star. “Not because she still has feelings for Justin, but more for the fact that Angelina has already stolen her man once, so for history to repeat itself with Justin would be too much for her to handle. It’d bring back old memories of the hell Angelina put her through during her divorce with Brad – and could easily ruin her New Year’s celebrations.”
Built to last?
Indeed, Jen dubbed Angelina’s handling of the Brad situation in 2005 as “uncool”. And now Brad’s worried about his first wife getting hurt again. Sources say they’ve been in touch since Jen’s split from Justin, and Brad is feeling protective.
“Brad couldn’t care less who Ange romances, as long as they don’t interfere with his kids,” says the insider. “But he hates the idea of anyone hurting Jen.”
However, while the Maleficent star’s romance with Justin may have started as a way to get even with her rival, things have changed.
“[Ange and Justin] have both developed feelings,” the source notes. “They’re having a blast sneaking around under the radar.”
Sheesh... When Jen does find out, she’s going to need a margarita or two poolside in Cabo to cope! n
Jen’s often vacationed at theh peacefulfl and d secluded Las Ventanas al Paraiso. But that didn’t stop Ange and Justin from checking in to the resort recently. ‘It’s pretty twisted,’ says the insider
‘She loves Cabo,’ says a source of Jen. Not anymore!
