Jennifer Aniston’s marriage to actor Justin Theroux is over. The couple announced their separation in a joint statement last week. “We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple,” it said, “but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.” The couple’s bicoastal lifestyle apparently doomed the marriage, with friends saying that Aniston loathed Theroux’s cramped Greenwich Village apartment, while he found Hollywood superficial. “Jennifer is more comfortable in Los Angeles with her close-knit group of friends,” a source told the New York Post. “But Justin doesn’t feel as at home in L.A., nor with Jennifer’s friends; he loves New York and the edgier crowd in the city.” In an awkward twist, Aniston’s Bel Air mansion is featured on the cover of this month’s Architectural Digest, with Aniston telling the magazine, “I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there’s nowhere else I want to be.”
Basketball star Blake Griffin was hit with a palimony suit filed on Valentine’s Day by his former fiancée, who has accused the Detroit Pistons player of abandoning his family for supermodel Kendall Jenner. Brynn Cameron, who has two children with Griffin and says she put her own career on hold to raise them, says Griffin “cruelly” embarrassed her by abruptly postponing their scheduled wedding with just a week to go, and then spending “a very public weekend” with Jenner. “While Griffin is continuing to earn millions from his NBA and endorsement deals,” Cameron’s lawsuit says, “Cameron and their children are homeless and cash-strapped.”
Billionaire technology mogul Peter Thiel is leaving Silicon Valley because he views it as a liberal echo chamber, The Wall Street Journal reports. The PayPal co-founder has long been an outlier in the technology industry because of his support for President Trump. Thiel plans to move his foundation and investment firm to Los Angeles, where he wants to start a new conservative media company. He’s also considering resigning from the board of Facebook. Thiel, who has complained that Silicon Valley is a “one-party state,” has told friends that Southern California is more in touch with the rest of America.
