Yesterday the Daily Mail ran an “exclusive” story that we covered that claimed that Jennifer Aniston had drunk dialed John Mayer because she wanted a reconciliation and that he was responsive to her and the two have been talking every day since. It pretty much sounded like BS, and the Daily Mail is about as reliable, or maybe less so, than Star Magazine. The main thing they’re pretty good at is spotting female celebrities’ tiny body flaws, minor weight gain, and knobby knees. If a female celebrity has gained 5 pounds or lost enough weight to make her knees protrude, it’s enough for a long story expounding on it in the Mail.
In Touch, another unreliable source but much more trustworthy than the Mail, says that it’s the other way around – Mayer has been sending Jennifer text messages in that pseudo-intellectual style of his. He’s only managed to raise a smirk out of Aniston, though, who just hits delete and moves on to do more yoga, eat a chicken salad, and top it off with some Smart Water.
John Mayer has been battling the blues since his August breakup with Jennifer Aniston, and now she’s ignoring him. “He tried reaching out to Jen with text messages, but she never responded,” an insider tells In Touch. “He was really hurt that she didn’t want to talk to him.” To make matters worse, the former playboy, 30, was spotted at La Esquina restaurant in NYC on September 13 striking out with the ladies. “He loves being noticed by women,” the insider says. But an onlooker added, “No one seemed interested in him that night. He didn’t look very happy.”

Now this version of events I believe. The only evidence we have that Aniston is the needy person the media portrays her as are the few interviews she did after the breakup of her five year marriage, which was over three years ago. Mayer, on the other hand, pretty much proves that he’s a douche who needs attention every time he opens his passive aggressive mouth or pens a blog entry.
Aniston seemed like an idiot for hooking up with Mayer in the first place, but she earns points for breaking it off and moving on.
