After facing weeks of speculation about the health of their marriage, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have announced their separation. The news came through a joint statement from the former couple.
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation,” the statement read in part. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.
The Friends alum and the Leftovers star began dating in 2011 and were engaged in 2012. They tied the knot in 2015 after a lengthy engagement.
