Is Justin Theroux scrambling to put an engagement ring on Jennifer Aniston’s finger? According to an OK! magazine report, the actress was so upset when her beau didn’t propose over the holidays that he’s now in danger of losing her.
“It’s been a nightmare few weeks for Jen and Justin,” a source reportedly told the tabloid.
Since no diamond materialized under the Christmas tree, “She is beside herself with disappointment,” the source said, fuming. “Not only did she not get a ring, she barely got anything! Jen has some of the most discerning style in the business, so a cheap purse [for Christmas] is not going to cut it.”
Now the actor-screenwriter — who is described as “moody,” “controlling” and “uncommunicative” — is said to be “freaked out, terrified that he’s going to lose her. He’s promised to change and basically give her anything and everything she wants.”
“Justin’s been to Tiffany’s, Cartier, and Harry Winston trying to find the perfect one,” the source says. “He’s not planning to just get down on one knee and say, ‘Will you marry me?’ He’s planning an epic showcase to make up for acting like such a jerk.”
But the former “Friends” star might not buy it. “She doesn’t want a conciliatory proposal — she wants it done the right way, not as an apology,” maintains the insider. “Jen’s taking Justin back, but doesn’t want to go through the same thing she did with Brad [Pitt] — stuck with an insensitive partner who’s just going through the motions until they drift apart. Jen simply won’t stand for being messed around with anymore.”
This all sounds bogus to us.
Demi Moore’s recent breakdown wasn’t just about the demise of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher, a friend of the actress insists to E! Online. The actress, who has been hospitalized for (per her rep) exhaustion, is said to be dealing with other pressures in her life.
“What [Demi’s] going through now is not just things not working out with Ashton,” a close, longtime friend explained. “It’s really more about the toll it takes on any ambitious woman in this town … constantly having to prove you’re not just a pretty face, but a talented actor, as well. Constantly having to prove you’re a good mother, not just a celebutante around town who goes to parties instead of looking after her family. Having to stay sober in a town that’s so not.”
A 911 call from a friend claiming Demi went into convulsions after smoking “something” suggests she was losing her battle to stay sober. But now it appears she’s getting the help she needs, whether it’s treatment for “exhaustion” or something else.
Imagine being little Maddox or Zahara Jolie-Pitt and innocently Googling your parents’ names … only to find a flood of scandalous, not-kid-appropriate dirt on Mommy and Daddy, aka Angie and Brad. Traumatic!
Luckily, their parents anticipated this possibility and took precautions to ensure their six kids won’t unearth an unfavorable account of that messy Jennifer Aniston business.
“On all the kids’ computers we had our names blocked,” Brad said to a German publication. “They can’t Google their mom and dad. I don’t want to make myself dependent on what other people think.”
