Jennifer Aniston turned to Gerard Butler amid marriage meltdown

Jennifer Aniston turned to Gerard Butler as her marriage fell apart, and she may have even "dumped" Justin Theroux for him. That's the bombshell claim coming from the National Enquirer.

"Jen has turned to Gerard to fill the void left by Justin," a source leaks to the publication. The tipster reveals the former co-stars "reconnected a few months ago" and have been "flirting with a reunion for a while." "Gerard told Jen he’s still carrying a torch for her [and] made it clear... he’s ready to commit to her," relates the insider.

The snitch further details how "Gerard made a public display of affection and loyalty toward her" when he named Aniston a better kisser than Angelina Jolie on a recent episode of "Watch What Happens Live." As her relationship with Theroux is "imploding," the actress is "really touched that Gerard is proving he has her back," relates the source.

But while the tabloid alleges Aniston has been "leaning hard" on Butler, Gossip Cop is told by a contact close to him that he actually has nothing to do with her separation at all. And though the gossip media likes to refer to the actor as her "ex-boyfriend," Butler and Aniston never actually dated. Their relationship has always been platonic and remains so.
