Jennifer Aniston insists her romance with Justin Theroux didn’t start while he was still in a long-term relationship with someone else. Although the pair became close as co-stars on the set of “Wanderlust,” while he was living with girlfriend of 14 years Heidi Bivens, “nothing happened” during the shoot, Jen maintains.
“Nothing happened on that movie,” the former “Friends” star asserted on “Good Morning America” of her now-serious boyfriend. “That’s a rumor, the easy rumor. Nothing happened. We were just friends. I’ve known Justin for a long time.”
Funny … we seem to recall Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie insisting they never hooked up on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” while he was still married to Jen. And then some years later — whoops! — they let it slip that, in fact, they had.
Bobbi Kristina vanishes
Bobbi Kristina Brown reportedly disappeared after her mother Whitney Houston’s emotional funeral service Saturday — and the family feared the distraught teen was using drugs.
After tragic superstar Whitney was honored at her New Jersey church with remembrances and performances by famous loved ones, her only daughter went missing.
“Everyone was freaking out and calling Bobbi Kristina’s cell,” a family friend relayed to the Daily Beast. “It was so much commotion and activity after the funeral that Bobbi Kristina just slipped away. [Whitney’s mother] Ms. Cissy [Houston] was beside herself.”
In contrast to a TMZ report that the family is seeking to put her in rehab, the source said Bobbi Kristina’s loved ones won’t admit she “has a drug problem.”
“But they know it and have been trying to keep her straight even before Whitney passed,” said the insider. “But losing your mother and the life you’re accustomed to all in one day is enough to send anybody off the deep end.”
A rep for the Houston family dismissed the drug rumors, saying in a statement Sunday, “There was some confusion about Bobbi Kristina’s whereabouts last night for a short time, but she’s OK. She needed some time alone. She is going through a very hard time as you can expect.”
True enough … but there are reports she may also be struggling with the same substance abuse issues that plagued her mother.
Breezy birthday greetings
We’re continuing to monitor the unexpectedly cordial relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown, and it’s continuing to make us uneasy.
When the Barbadian beauty celebrated turning 24 with a pre-birthday bash in Beverly Hills last week, it was said her ex was in attendance.
And Monday, the actual date of her birthday, Chris tweeted, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!” to the “We Found Love” singer, whose given name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty. And RiRi cheerfully retweeted him saying, “Thanks!”
The birthday celebration comes soon after Chris’ triumphant Grammy performance and win — seen by many as a sign of the music industry’s forgiveness for the infamous assault on Rihanna in 2009.
So strange. We don’t get how Rihanna can forgive and forget!
