John Mayer is trying to win Jennifer Aniston back, since she’s taken now


Isn’t this what douchebags always do? They can’t commit but tell you what a wonderful person you are and how they’ll miss you. Then once you’re well over them and happy in another relationship, (or happy on your own and finally realizing how much better off you are, take your pick) they come crawling back asking for another chance. It’s lame, it’s manipulative and it’s predictable. Anyway John Mayer is supposedly doing this to Jennifer Aniston. This is in the National Enquirer, but they’ve run a few exclusives before about Aniston’s lovelife (or they made them up, but they rang true) and I believe it. Here’s the story.

Jennifer Aniston is happily dating [Justin Theroux] but being barraged with text messages from [John Mayer] say sources.

“Jennifer is totally involved with Justin, and wants absolutely nothing to do with John,” revealed a friend.

“John broke Jen’s heart, but that doesn’t seem to faze him.

“He’s been relentless in his pursuit of Jennifer lately – texting her witty messages, sending love poems and calling to ask her out. But it’s been two years since they were together and Jen sees it as far too little too late.

“She feels she’s found a better, more responsible and reliable man.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, July 25, 2011]

I guess you can’t blame Mayer for trying, since Aniston took him back even after he blabbed to the paparazzi about how he broke up with her. It’s worth noting that Mayer gained some weight, not that there’s anything wrong with that since he’s an attractive guy either way before he opens his mouth. He’s not cutting his hair or shaving though and just looks like fresh hell lately. Meanwhile Aniston is frozen in time and remains very bangable, by most guys’ estimations. Like we may mock her for not switching it up much but she’s got a good formula going. Now she has a hot man by her side and can’t be bothered by Mayer. I hope she told him to f#ck off but you know that’s not her style. She probably just blinked a lot, called him back (since I doubt she texts) and engaged in small talk before she let him down easy, making some excuse that she was busy.

I have to give Mayer some credit for laying low lately. He hasn’t tweeted or blogged in months (from my quick look-over) and is just going about his business. Maybe he’s matured behind the scenes. We’ll see when he inevitably comes back. I give him four months, but seriously props to him for going this long.

    I’d take Justin over this douche anyway. I always feel that the only reason John Mayer dates any of these chicks (Jessica, Jen, Taylor) is for the publicity. And of course, the publicity he gets when he breaks up with them.

    Bleh. Never seen the attraction for him and his music is horrendous.

  2. brin says:

    They look better when they are with her. John Mayer is still a douche.

  3. Cherry says:

    Totally meh on this story. Sounds like another brilliant idea of Jennifer Aniston’s publicist, to remind us all that she is
    1. still hot!!
    2. happily dating!!!
    3. did we mention: stil hot!!!!
    Don’t care much either way.

  4. mia girl says:

    John Mayer strikes me as the kind of guy whose conquests /relationships might have more to do with him proving something to himself and other guys.

    That is why he brags, manipulates and acts like a douche. It’s as if to say “that’s right mother f*ckers” I can get the hot chicks” or “Hey dude, I’ll steal your girl, screw her and leave her in my wake, and she’ll still want me!” Maybe he was bullied when he was young; maybe he lost his first love to some Jock or something. I definitely think he operates from an immature, suspended state of emotional conflict.

    I completely believe that he is calling Aniston again, if only to prove that he can get back into her head. It’s so he can tell himself, and others that he is the sh*t.

    That said, I did find that one episode of a show he had on Vh1 years ago pretty funny.

  5. Quest says:

    One word comes to mind when I think of John Mayer – “Infection”

  6. inthekitchen says:

    Don’t find either of the guys attractive (or her, for that matter), but JM is so skanky.

  7. katnip says:

    I call total BS.. I guess the rags are trying so hard to create some kind of triangle to bring public interest to this relationship.

    Just a refresher on what he said about Jennifer Aniston

    On Jennifer Aniston:
    We just have a regard for each other’s feelings that is pretty intense. It’s been a deep relationship, and it’s no longer taking place at all. Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons? …

    One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumor that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, “These are the new rules.”…
    I’ll always be sorry that it didn’t last. In some ways I wish I could be with her. But I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32.

    I think the need to tie her to long past relationship is just dumb. All the men have moved on. Leave them alone. What next.. are they going to drag Vince Vaughn into it. OH wait he is married with a child. But that doesn’t stop them from going there with others.

    seriously BS.. John is maybe douche, but I don’t see him begging Jennifer to get back with him.

  8. 9 out 10 experts recommend says:

    Isn’t his album coming out soon? Need some PR? I call this as BS. The media is grasping straws on JM. He hasn’t been with a famous chick in a while. He probably is dating non famous ladies now or maybe he has a girlfriend that no one knows about. I am not going to speculate I am just insinuating. Don’t care really. I like his music so I am looking forward to his new record.

  9. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I thought John and Jennifer Love Hewitt made a nice couple. Didn’t he write your body is a wonderland for her?

  10. DenG says:

    I’m not the brightest person, but the Decade of Hotness award, Actor’s Studio bit, Hollywood ceremony, new guy, Mayer trying to win her back, blah, blah–her team is really earning their money. But I still don’t buy it.

  11. sassenach says:

    John is a douche but leave the guy alone. He hasn’t acted like a famewhore since that damaging article came out. While I think he holds no ill will towards Aniston I am sure he has moved on. If you publicly dump someone TWICE, you are not going back.

  12. really says:

    BOTH not hot, both full of themselves, both look greek, and both are super BORING!

  13. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Mia Girl, ita. He’d get major props from his “brahs” (and tons of press) if he could break these two up.

  14. Darlene says:

    Dude. Justin is a MAN. John is a BOY. What choice is there to even make???

  15. Maritza says:

    What John Mayer misses is being in the spotlight and in all the tabloids like he used to be when he was with Jen. I’m glad she has moved on, he can be someone else’s problem now. I’m still waiting to see if this thing with Justin is the real deal…

  16. ladybert62 says:

    Perhaps Justin should confront Mayer and tell him to lay off/go away – sometimes that works if the female is too considerate to be harsh with the ex lover.

  17. tracking says:

    Hasn’t that hack Mel been pushing a renewed Aniston-Mayer connection? I bet she fabricated this and sold it to NE.
    And hasn’t John been laying low in part due to the Giada ‘scandal’? Gross.

  18. Iggles says:

    really – That sentence came off awkward. I believe John Stamos is Greek and he’s hot as hell :)

    John Mayer is half jewish. Anyway, I agree him and Jen are both not hot but not due to their family backgrounds. Their behavior makes both of them even more unattractive…

    And Mayer look terrible with long hair!

  19. mln76 says:

    Well remembering how idiotic, famewhorish, slightly racist, and moronic John Mayer is/was and how he announced he dumped her to the paps and she took him back Justin is by comparison a prince ;)

  20. munchies says:

    i wont sleep next to a woman who slept with mayer. he looks like walking herps to me

  21. Cheyenne says:

    Slow news day?

    Mayer doesn’t look like the type to try to dig up any dead relationship. When it’s over, it’s over.

  22. Lady D says:

    What’s wrong with looking Greek? I’m not Greek, I’m just curious.

  23. Anti-icon says:

    John Mayer is a mystery. I don’t like him anymore because he PLANTS stories about himself in the press…..

    I do believe most of the stuff that’s said….but Mayer makes romance into a hostile place for everyone.

    John Mayer, maybe you should continue to stay out of the news.

  24. The Truth Fairy says:

    @ Cherry – You nailed it!

  25. Mr. Greek says:

    @ Really (#12): And what, may I ask, is so negative about looking Greek? Are you implying that all of us Greek men are slime buckets? Nice. Very nice.

    As for this lastest “super cool news about Jennifer”, well, it would appear that Huvane is certainly earning his percentage, and more.

    Now, if you will excuse me, Ladies, this Greek man must go and apply more grease to his hair, put on a shirt which is unbuttoned down to my navel, and apply ten gold chains around my neck. Oh, and I haven’t shaved for 3 days…gotta maintain that “Greek look”!

  26. anon33 says:


    Jennifer Aniston IS Greek.

    …the more you know…

  27. Stacia says:

    John’s looking a bit scuzzy these days.

  28. bluhare says:

    I wonder if part of the laying low is because of the blind items that were out a few months ago, where he was the top suspect . . . the ones about the back door action.

  29. Judging by aniston’s and chelsea’s bff crap,John Mayer would be a step up.I wonder if he finds racist-child bullies attractive? Nah,even he wouldn’t go there.

  30. michael bays comb over says:

    MIA’S girl, ITA and i hate guys like that! what a douche!

  31. original kate says:

    john mayer needs to get a haircut and stop tweeting.

  32. Eve says:

    Cherry, DenG and Mr. Greek nailed it.

  33. Chloe says:

    Yawn. Now I’m waiting for: “Seeing Jen so happy, Brad regrets his decision.”

  34. Mr.Greek**How could anyone think your a slime bucket.I can see you now looking into your girlfriends beautiful eyes.Yah,I remember that comment.You have a lucky lady!!

  35. Thea says:

    I can see him doing this. Since Giada put the stop to him. He seems like such a d***. I would tell him to go F*** himself and then put on my cowgirl outfit and ride Justin like a shetland pony…….YEEEE HAW…

  36. Chloe says:

    edit: and yeah, Mayer is a total douche.

  37. GoofPuff says:

    Publicist BS again for both of them. So transparent.

  38. Jeannified says:

    I can’t stand it when people wear boots and don’t pull their pants down over them, when they are wearing loose pants. It makes them look like a little kid who doesn’t know any better. John’s putting that baby fat back on, too!

  39. Joe's Mom says:

    I hope John Meyer comes back and puts her in her place with that mouth of his, if this is not true. I’m sick of JA appearing like “America’s sweetheart, and the good girl”, when she has a serious track record of smearing people to benefit herself. Her and Brad Pitt’s split was nothing more than two people mutually deciding it wasn’t working, yet she’s managed to turn that into the cheating scandal of all time, while Brad Pitt took the high road and just kept his mouth shut. Now, she swoops in, steals JT’s 14-year girlfriend, and makes that girl look like some unstable, clinging woman who wouldn’t move out, or that they weren’t that serious. I just do not like her style, and didn’t like the things she did to, and said about BP, LONG before they split up. In fact, back then I barely knew who she was, but she minimized BP and said such strange “put downs” about him, that it caught my attention. Whatever. I’m glad the J-P’s are happy at least, and don’t need to deal with her.

  40. Rachel() says:

    I had to work this morning, and was forced to listen to about an album’s worth of John Mayer songs. It was horrible. What I don’t get is how he can very publicly be such a douche bag to all these famous women, and then write a bunch of sappy, and sensitive songs about how much he loves them and wants the world to be a good place. We’re not buying it John! We know you’re a tool.

    Like in this song: Why Georgia- “Am I living it right? Am I living it right?”
    No. You’re not living it right. You should know the answer to this question. If you genuinely cared about being a good person, you wouldn’t be such a jerk.
    Maybe if he started writing songs about how to con 19 year olds into sleeping w/ him, I would be able to take him seriously.
    Sorry for ranting, but he’s been pissing me off all day.

  41. Jojo says:

    Weird, he’s morphing from Johnny Depp to Jack Black!

  42. Jana says:

    This story is so not believable. That ship sailed for him long ago.

  43. Sassy says:

    John Mayer is so nasty. And his orgasm/taking a dump face when he plays guitar is so fug.

  44. Mingy says:

    @ Brin, so true! she really does make them look good.

  45. Eww_Gross says:

    On the “do-able” scale, John is now and forever labeled a fat ass/ugly NO. The above pics of him are just wrong. So wrong. Ewww!!

  46. Carolyn says:

    What? Now that Jen’s taken she still has to appear desirable? BS. Whenever I am reminded of the Mayer Aniston hook up I think of Super Duper Cooper. Just yuk all round.

  47. pwal says:

    I just wonder why Vince Vaughn was never subjected to these ‘I want her back’ stories. I mean, he laid up with a college student (who eventually blabbed about it online) before he and Aniston broke.

    What force field is protecting him? Oh, yeah… he did Aniston a solid by casting her in The Break Up, which bolstered her rep as being box office.

  48. LuckyLilGem says:

    Jen’s publicist planted the story to make Jen seem like a wanted woman as opposed to a desperate home wrecker. Ugh… If John wanted her back, he wouldn’t have waited 2 years and 20 pounds. He may just be on the rebound form a different relationship or think he can still hook up with her whenever he wants. John is that vain.

  49. LuckyLilGem says:

    Ps. Justin is a younger brunette Brad Pitt? They look alike. Watch out Jen, Angie may strike twice.

  50. anom says:

    justin is a grown up midget version of eddie munster. his brunette hair is running away from his forehead faster than aniston “new men” have run away from her. these past 7 years.

  51. anom says:

    this post is about john mayer and aniston. JM was in fact aniston’s last love (although she and g butler were friends with benefits)her new man justin looks more like JM NOT BP. (except justin is SHORT and BALDING)

  52. Kosmos says:

    Ridiculous….they are so over and have both moved on long ago. John Mayer did not handle the situation well, so we don’t end up with a great impression of him, but he is a very talented songwriter, singer and musician, hands down! I don’t know what ever to think of Jennifer Aniston, I guess I have mixed feelings, but I’m sure she is basically a good person. I just hope she’s not as hung up on herself as a lot of the female celebrities are…

  53. shay kay says:

    I just can’t stand John Mayer.He’s completely egotistical, immature, and very indiscreet.I don’t get what any of the ladies ever saw in him.
    Is he trying to change his image with the new “look” in the last pic?If so than all I can say is that he’s redoing the paint job on a car that needed a new engine and people still won’t be buying it.

  54. Laughternrain says:

    ITA, Joe’s Mom. Remember when she went on national tv and said that she didn’t believe Brad was the love of her life? And this was when they were ‘happily married’, pre M&MS. That must have truly hurt Brad. Imagine doing that to your husband.

    Seriously, how would any of you guys feel if your spouse went on national tv and said they don’t believe you are the love of your life?

    Ponder that for a moment.

    She striked me back then as cold, cruel and abusive and I believe she was emotionally abusive to Brad in that marriage. She was so nasty to him and putting him down alot. Very abusive.

    As for Mayer, I doubt he’d be chasing her considering that like all the rest, he dumped her and never looked back. She needed him more than he needed her.

  55. pwal says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t there rumors that John Mayer tried to get Jessica Simpson back after she hooked up with Tony Romo? And wasn’t there some awkwardness when Mayer and Romo’s paths crossed at some magazine event?

  56. Anti-icon says:

    #55laughernrain: Are you aware that Chris Rock, the comic, made a movie entitled “I Think I Love My Life” that was semi-autobiographic…and he was/is still married to the same woman.

    I saw that interview on Oprah with Jennifer Aniston that you mention. I did NOT get the impression that it was cruel, unkind, or in any way reflected anything other than a marriage/woman who was growing in her understanding of “soul mates” which was the genesis of the quote. She wasn’t sure she believed in soul mates as a construct of love. I was on board with her, and I was in a long marriage myself at the time. So, I guess every viewer had a different response to that interview.

  57. truthSF says:


    That’s because Jessica is sexual napalm, who can resist that?

    John Mayer does not want Jennifer Aniston back, the same way neither Vince Vaughn nor Brad Pitt wanted her back. They’ve both moved on and created a family with women they fell in love with.

    John seems to be fine being single. I’m sure he will settle down if and when he’s ready or wants to.

  58. lalola says:

    How boring!!!! Can she just tell him to f-off or ignore his texts?

  59. lambchop says:

    @bluhare, can you elaborate on those back door action blind items?

  60. Mook says:

    Ten. Nine. Eight…… and we will get the “leak” about Jen’s “friends” saying she says Justin is better in bed than Brad Pitt, John, Bradley, Brad Pitt, Paul, Scott, Vince Vaughn, Brad Pitt, Gerard Brad Pitt.

    This heifer has no new tune.

  61. Mine says:

    I agree that this is major BS from Jen and her pr team. Not that I like John (I do think he is full of himself) but Jen camp is so quick to bash him since he humiliated Jen in the public eye. Jen and her camp intend on ruining John’s career forever, the way they try to ruin Angelina career. John should shoot this new lie down quickly. I just don’t understand why Jen just can’t move on with her life and leave people in her past alone. So strange that Jen has the need to have multiple men chasing her in the media eye. That screams serious insecurities and it probably makes her NOT fun to be with. She seem to so obsessive about her image = the need to pay a load of money to a pr team. Guess
    this New guy Justin is not enough for her-being
    that he is short and balding.

  62. Camille says:

    @Cherry #3: You nailed it.

    I don’t buy this story at all.

  63. yosa says:

    this article is BS…i don’t buy it for a minute…first…JM was the one who dumped Jen twice NOT her!! second…i think this is Jen’s camp trying to put some news for her PR….lastly..this whole JM is douch is just ridiculous ..Leave the guy alone..he shut his mouth recently and stayed away from the media ect..and still you are hating oh him….
