Did Justin Theroux “order” Jennifer Aniston to dump Chelsea Handler?


The tabloids are full of Jennifer Aniston-Justin Theroux (JustJen) relationship news this week, and it’s almost like the hysteria surrounding Aniston’s womb are completely forgotten. Maybe the ‘bloids didn’t feel like running yet another story about Jennifer “preparing for baby” by renting a cottage and doing yoga. Which is weird, because there were new exclusive photos of Jennifer and Justin leaving a medical building just a few days ago – that would have made a good “Are they checking their fertility?” story. Alas.

Anyway, on to this week’s stories. According to In Touch Weekly, Jennifer is making Justin see a couples therapist. Wait, have we already heard this? Sort of – last month, sources claimed Aniston was seeing a therapist on her own to deal with her trust issues – because she got dumped by Brad six years ago. This new story is about Justin and Jennifer doing therapy together so that they can maintain their relationship – because Jennifer worries that Justin will leave JUST LIKE BRAD.

You know things are super-serious when a couple heads to counseling to make sure they stay on the right track – and that’s just what Jennifer Aniston is doing with new love Justin Theroux.

Although her rep denies it, a pal says she is determined to make things work after her devastating split from Brad Pitt, and she has turned to a therapist to make sure she and Justin continue to sail smoothly on the sea of love!

Eh. I think it’s well-documented that Jennifer loves therapy and that she believes that it helps her. I don’t have any problem believing that she’s still seeing a therapist (although her original therapist died on her, for which she probably has additional abandonment issues). But I doubt Justin is all “Yes, we should do couples counseling because our love needs to be maintained, like a garden.” He just doesn’t seem the type.

But Justin does seem like the type to do some pruning amongst Jennifer’s coked-up Goddess Circle. According to Star Magazine, Justin has “ordered” Jennifer to stop spending time with Chelsea Handler. Well done, Justin.

Justin Theroux is ordering his love to stop spending time with her BFF Chelsea Handler. Despite his bad-boy image, Justin “cannot stand” Chelsea and he wants Jennifer Aniston to end their friendship.

“Justin thinks Chelsea is crass and a terrible influence on Jen,” an insider tells Star. “He’s made it clear he doesn’t want to spend any time with Chelsea.”

But Jen is left wondering if Justin is nothing more than a hypocrite.

“Justin is this motorcycle-riding, anti-establishment type of guy – but he expects Jen to be conservative! She’s not even allowed to hang out with someone with a dirty mouth?” So even though Jen and Chelsea has had fights in the past, Jen is now digging in her heels to prove a point.

“No one tells her what to do,” fumes the insider. “She wants to hang out with Chelsea just to show Justin he can’t control her. She wants to make that clear before things go any further. As much as she adores Justin, she shouldn’t have to be with a guy who makes her feel like she always has to be watching what she does.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Jennifer really missed the point if she thinks the only reason Justin doesn’t like Chelsea is that Chelsea has a dirty mouth. The problem is that Chelsea clings to Jennifer Aniston, worships the ground she walks on, and is probably in the midst of some sketchy Single White Female situation. Plus, Chelsea is just toxic. When she goes down, all of her “friends” are going to be tainted too.

    If Justin is on a role with ordering Jennifer to do stuff. Can he order her to stop making stupid romcom movies! Go deeper Jen, DEEPER!

  2. brin says:

    Well, he can’t be too bad then.
    What’s with all the Star stories?

  3. gee says:

    I totally agree with all of your Chelsea Handler assessment. I cannot stand that woman.

  4. Addie says:

    Good for Jusin.
    I doubt very much that he ordered her to do anything.
    He probably stated his case as to why CH is no good and if Jen has any smarts in her, she will listen to her man.

  5. Peg says:

    She certainly looks much happier with Chelsea than she does with Justin. Jealous maybe?

  6. Julia says:

    Chelsea is just at the very bottom of the barrel in terms of decency.

    She is ugly and repulsive inside and out : a boozer, mean, negative, manipulatve, hypocrit, gross, obscene, irresponsible, immature, ignorant….

    She is the kind of person I would be ashamed to call my friend and would feel unease to introduce her to my entourage or of I was a man, the kind of woman i would feel ashamed to introduce to my parents.

    If this story is true, good for Justin to make his new girlfriend realise that any association with ‘that’ taints her too.

    And in the same process he should distance himself from that ‘thing’ called Terry Richardson.

  7. Thea says:

    She probably saw through Chelsea and her need to exploit people. I think Jen can make decisions on her own and I think 99.9 percent of tabloids is BS.

  8. anonymous says:

    No she shold not! JA is not married to him. Abusers start to separate you from your friends and family, Chelsea might be brash but she has street smarts. JA is a woman with a man who has little money while she has millions. I will go even further, a man who leaves a woman of 14 years and set up himself so quickly with someone else is manipulative.

  9. lucy2 says:

    Let’s not forget this is Star magazine – probably total BS.
    On the other hand, I would hope someone would tell her to distance herself from Chelsea – who is clearly a hanger-on and user.

  10. Cheyenne says:

    I don’t like either Handler or Aniston but I have a bad feeling about this. He sounds like a controlling jerk. She can make up her own mind about her friends. He probably has a few toxic friends of his own.

    And for heaven’s sake, why are they ALWAYS referencing Brad Pitt about her trust issues? How come they never mention John Mayer? Pitt only dumped her once. Mayer dumped her twice.

  11. DenG says:

    Both Justin and Anistain should be wearing a Scarlet H for hypocrite on their chests. I’m waiting for Chelsea to start mean-girling both of these pretenders.

  12. RocketMerry says:

    I agree @anonymous. No lover has any right to order you to do something. They may express their point, very well, and “order” is probably a well chosen “magazine” word.
    Still, if they have been together a couple of months and he’s already trying to make her leave her friends behind, there is something sketchy. That is very manipulative, a move that would make the woman feel more lonely and cling even harder (if possible) to the man, leaving her more and more co-dependant.
    Dump CH if you want, Jen, but keep a very good and varied circle of good ol’ friends, ’cause this dude might not mean all well.

  13. siska says:

    i dont think so..
    jen already a mature woman..she can do whatever she want..and the same as Jtx..
    she didnt seem like a person who obey a man or abandon friends just because a bf..she is chill..and she accept her friends with all their plus and minus..thats why she has plenty of friends..and btw..Jtx being spotted recently in CM with Chelsea bf..and at the ceremony in Chinesse t..Jtx..laugh at chelsea jokes..they seem chill..

  14. siska says:

    btw..jen and jtx new movie Wanderlust being move to 24 feb..maybe either it is a better time slot (with no comedy competition) or to avoid the pr too much surround about this couple and how they begin..is he cheated or jen homewrecker..etc or because the movie is weak..
    but for my opinion..I think feb is better slot than october..which soo much strong competition..like hard steel..and even too close with Money ball..and that will make people keep compare them..

  15. Lindy says:

    If Justin is indeed helping JA see the light about Chelsea and her nasty, clingy, ugly ways, then I’d venture to say the relationship might actually be on solid footing. Usually, when one partner in a relationship can help–in a constructive and kind way–to shine a light on the other partner’s bad habits, longstanding flaws, etc. then it’s a good sign that the relationship is solid.

    I know I rely on my husband of ten years to do that for me–he’s usually right (about toxic friendships I maintain out of habit etc.) and even if I get a little defensive at first, I usually come around. I do the same thing for him. So maybe Justin is a good thing for JA…

  16. Nev says:

    Cheyenne beat me to it. I was going to reference the same thing. Why keep bringing up Brad when John Mayer dumped (I thought 3) her so many times.
    I think a better statement is…..Jennifer worries that Justin will leave her like he left Heidi after their 14 year relationship.
    That’s what Jen should be worried about since he has set her up to be his cash cow.

  17. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “Jennifer really missed the point if she thinks the only reason Justin doesn’t like Chelsea is that Chelsea has a dirty mouth.”

    exactly what I was thinking.

    now, people it IS star, but with a lot of these rags, there’s a SMALL kernel of truth to the story that they then spin into something OMG HUGE!!!

    I’d bet that he didn’t ORDER her to dump Handler, but it’s likely that he said something about how Handler doesn’t do anything for Aniston’s image. well, anything POSITIVE…but plenty of negative.

  18. Julia says:

    I have to add that I remembered Chelsea speaking about her relationship with Aniston saying that they usually go to bars.

    So maybe the thought of two women hanging out on the booze and gossiping loudly is not in Justin’s taste.

    My feeling is also that Chelsea seems like a blood sucking leech who manipulates and gives favours and guarantees of fidelity you don’t even ask for so that you feel obliged to be friendly with her in return, like you owe her for having your back.

    She strikes me as some poisoneous friend a la ‘Single White Female’ who could lash out unto you anytime if you ever deceive her or distance yourself from her friendship.

    With friends like her, you really don’t need ennemies. She is really Chelsea ‘I won’t be ignored’ Handler.

  19. lisa says:

    People love to talk about who is friends with whom.. I just notice that since she has been hanging with Handler she is not seen with most of the Goddess Circle.

    Despite what reports say.. She and Courteny have not been seen together in over a year. NOT one picture. I know that doesn’t mean it is proof. But that is a bit off considering the media has painted them as BFFs forever, and held them up as the ideal Friends.. so why are they not buddying around since she and Handler became close.

    just asking.

  20. RobN says:

    Her abandonment issues, if she actually has any, come from her mother leaving when she was a child and not coming back. That’s the kind of thing that follows you for a long time. As for Chelsea, sometimes it does take others to help you see through somebody. It’s not always manipulation; sometimes it’s just somebody not so emotionally involved.

  21. svetlana says:

    Er… Star Magazine? Really?

    While it’s not hard at all to imagine a person not liking Chelsea Handler, this is a man who’s good buddies with Terry Richardson. It’s not like his friends are prim Victorian ladies. I don’t think he’s the type or in the position to be pruning her friends.

  22. RocketMerry says:

    Is Terry Richardson the photographer? Why should he distance himself from him? Is he controversial or something?

  23. The Original Ashley says:

    How does she get so much coverage? She’s not that interesting. The Brad triangle is long forgotten. Enough already.

  24. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    In the first pic it looks like he is muttering “let me go, you’re squeezing my hand too tight” and she is muttering “We’re being papped and I’m paying you good money so hold on tight” Jenneroux that is my new name for this duo.

  25. mln76 says:

    Well they both are friends with shitty people Terry R is a creep. Handler is a loud mouth bitch. Joe Francis another perv (great character references these two have eh). I doubt he wants Handler gone out of any moral superiority but just because she is an unfunny hanger-on who is probably as annoying as fuck with the maturity level of a 15 year old. Making the demand that they stop hanging out isn’t healthy unless she’s actually done something to piss him off.

  26. Chloe says:

    While I’d hate for a guy to tell me whom I should be seeing, I don’t blame Theroux for not wanting to hang out with Handler.

    Couple therapy for maintenance reasons *is* a tad too much (unless we’re talking about yoga lessons or ikebana classes or other /cough/ *spiritual* courses that JA understands to help her develop her inner beauty or whatnot). But if things are okay between two people, you honestly don’t need a third party in your relationship.

    edit: then again, Theroux is friends with that creepy photographer known to molest young models, so he’s not really the best person to judge Handler. Thanks, mln76 for bringing that up, I totally forgot

  27. Original Tiffany says:

    Google yourself some Terry Richardson and prepare to vomit. He’s a pedophile photographer who preys on young models. Slimeball.
    That said, I confess during a .99 cent kindle sale I read “My horizontal life” by Ms. Handler and it was vomit inducing too. What a piece of trash. I want my dollar back.
    Does this say something about both Justin and Jen? Probably.

  28. RocketMerry says:

    Just Googled, just vomited. Such a horrid, perverted bastard.
    Well, Theroux is friends with this monster and he (allegedly) tells JA to drop Handler? That just supports the theory that he’s just trying to acquire more emotional power. The guy gives me the creeps.

  29. Yvette says:

    This report is from “Star” and “In Touch Weekly” magazines. We all know that they’ve made up stories for years with Jen as the central figure–sans even a speck of truth–both in and out of the Angie-Brad-Jen triangle. So why put stock in any of the stories they write now?

    If Jen didn’t distance herself from Chelsea after those crude jokes about the Jolie and her kids, I don’t see her distancing herself from Chelsea now.

    And speaking of Best Friends Forever … where in the world is Courtney Cox in all the coverage of Jen’s romantic bliss?

  30. ann says:

    Hats off to 7, 28, 29 and 31 for pointing out that Justin has slimy friends too.
    I don’t like the mags saying that Jenifer was seeing a therapist because of Brad. Her trust issues were from her parents break up and she was seeking help way before Brad. But hey, she’s still get to ride on his coattails somehow, right? She needs to see an acting coach more than a therapist to fix her problems.

  31. Mario says:

    She’s pathetic if she lets him tell her who she can and cannot be friends with. He looks like a total douche bag.

  32. lisa says:


    she actually has an acting coach she has worked with and been friends with for YEARS..

    so when people say she needs an acting coach that is not accurate.. she may need a new one.

  33. Cheyenne says:

    *Gag* He’s friends with Terry Richardson?! And he complains about her friends? Hypocrite much?

  34. chelsea,aniston,terri richardson,joe francis,(birds of a feather,flock together)EDIT**IMO I think Courtney realized that ‘group mess’ and bolted.

  35. Cheyenne says:

    @Hanna: I think you’re right. People do judge you by the company you keep, and that is some very, very bad company.

  36. nan says:

    I can only imagine what their children would look like….all bobbleheads. His head is HUGE!!!!

  37. Kim says:

    Chelsea seems like the kind of girl Justin would date not Jennifer. I doubt he is saying she cant see her and if he is – dump him fast!

  38. Sue says:

    I thought her father left for another woman.

  39. crazycatlady says:

    Am I the first one to jump on this?

    If so – I hereby dub them

    Justifer !

  40. gg says:

    She and Handler look like twins. Never noticed that before.

  41. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @sue, IF her father left her mother for another woman (and she married a man who did the same), she IS in dire need of therapy. Daddy issues anyone?

  42. Elle says:

    i just watched “American Psycho” again last night. I forgt Justin was in it. He plays a slimy wall street type. He wears his hair the same way he did in that movie. Of course I don’t know him , but on the surface (clothes, hair) he seems to be a shady poseur.

  43. mln76 says:

    @ Morticiandoitbetter the story is much more ironic. Not only did her father leave her mom for another woman but according to Jen she stopped talking to her mother (for about a decade)in part because she was still so bitter over the divorce for decades only reconciling AFTER her own divorce. Talk about turning into your mother (at least in the eyes of the tabloid press).

  44. Mac says:

    Even Courteney thinks he’s a snake.

    Since Jennifer started dating actor/director Justin Theroux the women have not been spending much time together because Courteney is not a big fan of his.

    “Courteney doesn’t like Justin much,” an insider told Life & Style. “She thinks he spells trouble for Jen and has only latched onto her for fame, money and to advance his career in Hollywood.”

    The two women have apparently not been seen together since July and their super-close friendship is said to be waning because of Courteney’s dislike of Jennifer’s new man.

    “Justin isn’t exactly the type of guy Courteney wants babysitting Coco, and I can’t see him hanging around her family voluntarily,” a friend of Courteney’s allegedly said.

  45. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @min76, Wow! I wonder why she would stop talking to her mother when her father was the one who “abandoned” her mother. Those ARE some major daddy issues! I guess these are the things she talks about with her therapist.

  46. Anonymous says:

    Love her! And justin! One of the best new couples ever and that’s that they don’t even try to be seen on cameras, much less video cameras.
    So much love/hate, from people, all from their love to each other, conflicts, drama, and hotness all mixed in to one couple, you can’t help but love it!

  47. Kelly says:

    I don’t understand why people hate Chelsea so much, I don’t think she is so bad. And Jennifer Aniston should definitely not let him tell her who to hang out with, that is ridiculous. If JA still has trust issues regarding Brad Pitt though, that is just sad. She should really be over that already.

  48. yoho_ahoy says:

    ‘…her original therapist died on her, so she has additional abandonment issues…’ just about sums up norman’s mom perfectly

  49. yoho_ahoy says:

    @ gg yes. twaddledumb & twaddledouche

  50. Juliesunflower says:

    @kelly – where have you been? Chelsea is a piece of work.

  51. Lady D says:

    Kelly have you ever listened to this harpie?

  52. ebraca says:

    the story is meh. i just want aniston to stop wearing scarves with tank tops. seriously, if you’re cold wear a cardigan.

  53. anonymous says:

    Don’t see Courtney Cox around anymore. maybe Justin told JA the same thing about Courtney, if that’s the case, girlfriend you are in big trouble.

  54. Sue says:

    I wonder what happened with her and Courtney they were so close did they split when Chelsea came along?

    Maybe Chelsea told Jen not to hang around her anymore; she did the samething with the Kardashians I remember Chelsea made a comment saying Jen went out to dinner and met them and Chelsea told her not talk/hang around them because people would blame her. Like Chelsea any better than the Kardashians I think she worst because the Kardashians are harmless fame whores while Chelsea is a nastily vile piece of work who is also a fame whore and a social climber.

  55. ann says:

    Never thought I’d say this but Chelsea looks better than Jennifer in these pictures.

  56. Phoenix says:

    Aniston has a lot of psychological problems, she admitted a couple of years ago that she had been in therapy for 20 years. Anyone needing therapy for that long is seriously messed up. Why she bothers with therapy when it never seems to have any improvements, is beyond me. Maybe, being the homewrecker that she is, she wants to go to therapy to brainwash him to stay with her. After all, he cheated on Heidi with her and as they say; you lose em how you get em. So she should be worried, karma and all.

  57. Rux says:

    I love Jen and Handler. For some strange reason, I think they should date. Jen likes douchebags and Handler is the semblance of a female douchebag…couple made in heaven; tabloid that is.

  58. smh says:

    Maybe her relentless p.r. team realized that hanging out with Handler gives her a bad rep and they are working this story now so that when Jeniston stops hanging out with Handler, she will not be seen as some back-stabbing fake friend who betrayed the woman who slayed Angelina Jolie for her (ok that was one long sentence but you get my point)

  59. corey says:

    I can’t believe that Brad is still coming up in reference to Jen. I would bet that, outside of the odd run-in, they haven’t spoken in years. The whole Hollywood business is so bizarre to me. I wonder what its like to have a whole career based off of your ex husband and a trendy haircut? so.weird.

  60. honeybunn says:

    I disagree with some of you negative commenters. If you can’t say something nice get off of this website.Do you really believe that mess that Justin ordered her to cut her friendship with chelsea Handler.That is a bunch of Bull.
    People say anything to sell something. Chelsea Handler is a stand up comedian. And she is paid to make jokes.That doesnot mean that this is her everyday demeanor.She is probably the most loyal friend to Jennifer.Justin doesnot seem like the type to do that.He is not dating chelsea he is dating Jen.I read that this statement is not true . it is fiction.Leave Jen and justin alone and let them be happy.

  61. Phoenix says:

    honeybunn, just who do you think you are, a board dictator? This site is for ALL comments; good and bad. Also note the name of the site, Cele’bitchy’. I suggest you leave since you don’t understand the premise of this site or the premise of free speech.

  62. Mnj says:

    Pitt was just the cherry on the top of her abandoment issue. Her father left her mother when she was.8.but I doubt they disnt talk for a decade cuz she starred in one of his soaps when she was 12. Her mother was a bitch for real. She use to tell her how big her nose was and how to dress and everything. And then she wrote a book about her and then did an interview and talk bad about her own daughter. So jen stop talkin to her and didnt invitw to her wedding (who blame her) and then she divorced pitt (he didnt leave her) and her therapist dies (the one that was helping her get over her divorce.) So she starts talkin to her mother after 5 years. So is better to deal with it with therapy than umm idk lets say cuttin your self um (jolie) its funny how der lifes are somewhat the same and how dey have dealt with it. Jolie was baby when her parents divorse (i think is worse when you are old enough to understand what is goin on) she also starred in a movie with her father at 5 yrs old. Wel her mother wasnt any better then anistons she let her bf live with her at 14. nd then she needed her space at 16. She gets married and then separates less than a year. Get married again to that creep. Stars in a movie with her father again (tomb raider) stops talkin to his father. Becomes good will ambasador (helps ppl to make her self feel better). Gets preg by a man that is still legally married and says she will never be with a married man. Adops kids so she stops hurtin herself. starts talkin to her father. So who has handle abandomeNt issues better and daddy issues. And who is the real looser hear bradd pitt.

  63. Cheyenne says:

    Mnj: Nice try at re-writing history, honey, but yes, Brad did leave his wife. He left her for his life partner and the mother of his children. Just deal with it.

    (BTW, you might want to use spell check and grammar check before you post on here again.)

  64. John Wayne Lives says:

    This whole mess is some kind of hypocrytical, self-serving, ego-stroking, bullsh!t mess that makes me vomit.
    And I think JA should ABSOLUTELY be in therapy. Too bad it’s over a guy. *eyeroll* Way to grow Anison.

  65. Leah says:

    HA, the comments about Chelsea crack me up. My brother and SIL have met her a few times and they say she’s….different? Definitely crass from what I’ve seen of her show.

    Has anyone ever read the newest book she “wrote”? It’s mainly written by people who work for her. Hard to believe but she actually talks to them like that!

    Before I forget-what’s up with the matching outfits, down to the sunglasses? Really? That annoys the hell out of me.

  66. giga says:

    Chelsea Handler got bad mouth and low class. If Jen be best friend with her. Both will be the same level.
