National Enquirer - - FIRST TO KNOW -

FOR­MER “Friends” star Jen­nifer Anis­ton is no pal of Jimmy Kim­mel’s any­more — she’s dropped her dis­graced pal like a bad habit, spies dished!

Sources snitched the 51-year-old ac­tress — who was a fa­vorite guest on “Jimmy Kim­mel Live” — has un­friended the scan­dalscarred 52-yearold host, who has gone into hid­ing af­ter it was re­vealed he wore black­face and used the N-word in com­edy sketches in the 1990s!

“It’s fairly ob­vi­ous she thinks he’s ra­dioac­tive and she wants to give him a wide berth un­til the scandal dies down,” an in­sider spilled. “She doesn’t want to be any­where near him and that kind of back­lash!”

And that may go for be­ing any­where near his screenwrit­er wife, 42-yearold Molly McNear­ney, as well, in­sid­ers said!

“They all had plans to go away to Mex­ico to­gether in the com­ing weeks, but Jen’s put that on hold and told

them both it won’t be hap­pen­ing any time soon," a source dished. The em­bat­tled late-night host has fled L.A. to an undis­closed lo­ca­tion to es­cape the firestorm that many be­lieve will cost him his job!

Footage has also emerged of Jimmy mak­ing an in­sen­si­tive joke af­ter ac­tress Me­gan Fox claimed she had been sex­u­ally ob­jec­ti­fied by di­rec­tor Michael Bay on his show in 2009! Though Jimmy, who did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment, is­sued a writ­ten apol­ogy, many peo­ple in Hol­ly­wood feel that was not nearly enough, the in­sider re­vealed.

Jen may feel that stand­ing by Jimmy now would be a ca­reer killer, ac­cord­ing to sources, who claimed she is not re­turn­ing his calls.

“Jen is in full preser­va­tion mode,” a source said. “She’s cut him off!”

Although Jen’s rep de­nied the friend­ship has ended, sources added she’s ter­ri­fied her as­so­ci­a­tion with Jimmy will threaten her in­volve­ment with the up­com­ing “Friends” re­union, which comes with a $2 mil­lion pay­check and is al­ready hang­ing by a thread be­cause of de­lays caused by the pan­demic.

“She’s not go­ing to dip her toe into this sor­did mess,” a source squealed. “Jimmy’s on his own, as far as she’s con­cerned.”

Jimmy has re­ceived back­lash for per­form­ing in black­face Jen­nifer doesn’t want to be as­so­ci­ated with this scandal, sources said
