You could say she's just being a Friend
According to US Weekly, a source close to Jennifer Aniston is stating that Brad Pitt has begun texting his ex-wife.
The website reports that Pitt did not have the former star of Friends’ phone number but tracked it down through “a tangled web” of contacts so he could send well wishes for her 48th birthday on February 11th. According to the insider, they have continued texting since: “They started talking once he wished her a happy birthday.”
The source says that Brad “has confided in Jen,” and “told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.”
Last year, Pitt divorced with Angelina Jolie and he is currently battling Jolie for joint custody of their six children.
Aniston is happily settled having married Justin Theroux in 2015. The source added that Justin is aware they are in contact and “is OK with them being friends,” knowing that “Jen just wants to be nice.”
She'll be there for him, when the rain starts to fall (etc...).
