Jennifer Aniston is one of the beloved stars in Hollywood. She is definitely not short of close friends and yet, a tabloid claimed Aniston is getting insecure and jealous of the attention that Brad Pitt is giving to her other female friend, Alia Shawkat.

According to Heat, the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood actor's friendship with Shawkat made Aniston feel insecure about her own closeness with Brad. A source of the tabloid, allegedly close to the Friends actress, revealed how Jen is finding it hard to stay cool whenever she hears about how smitten her ex-husband is to the Arrested Development actress. 

"[It's] really getting on Jen's nerves. She can't get her head around the fact that this girl seems to have come from nowhere," the source said. 

The tabloid added that Aniston and Pitt have been considering giving their relationship a chance before the coronavirus lockdown began. But now that Brad is getting close with Alia, The Morning Show actress is having second thoughts if she and Pitt have a future together. 

The insider said Jen has started doubting her relationship with Brad as the actor's phone calls and text messages became less frequent. Apparently, the actress is lucky if she would hear from Pitt more than a couple of times a week.

Gossip Cop dismissed the Heat story as mere speculation. It pointed out the In Touch article this week that was written with a similar claim. 

In Touch claimed that Pitt has been cheating on Aniston with Shawkat, who allegedly spotted entering the Ad Astra actor's gated property multiple times over the past few weeks. A source of the tabloid alleged that Pitt is now torn between the two romantic affairs he is in.

Gossip Cop's source close to Brad, however, debunked the rumor, stressing that the actor can't cheat on someone that he is not dating. This proved once again that Pitt and Aniston are not back together. 

The ex-couple has been rumored dating again after they got divorced from their respective spouses. It was further fueled by the fact that Pitt attended several parties that Aniston had hosted in the past and there was also the most talked-about reunion at the 2020 SAG Awards earlier this year. 

As for Shawkat, she was first romantically linked to Pitt when they were spotted attending several events together last year. In March, the two were also photographed sharing a meal in Los Angeles, a day after they were also spotted watching a concert together.
