No bad vibes here! Jennifer Aniston warded off negative spirits while wearing an evil eye necklace after ex-husband Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s split.
The Friends alum, 47, who divorced Pitt in 2005 and married Justin Theroux in August 2015, rocked the trendy accessory by Jennifer Meyer Jewelry while out and about in Manhattan on Monday, September 26. The necklace was the perfect accent to her casual outfit: a black sleeveless tee, rolled-up medium-wash jeans and Gucci loafers.
Jennifer Meyer, a jewelry designer loved by Claire Danes, Emma Roberts and Zoe Saldana, Instagrammed about Aniston’s accessory as well. “The always gorgeous & chic Jen stepping out in NYC wearing her JM evil eye 💙 xo #jennifermeyer #xojm #jenniferaniston,” she posted on September 26.
It’s unclear whether Aniston believes in the ancient symbol, which traditionally defends the wearer against a curse. But there is one mystical power she’s apparently crediting for her ex’s failed marriage with Jolie, which culminated in divorce papers filed on Monday, September 19. “Yeah, that’s karma for you!” Aniston quipped, according to a source, when she heard of the divorce last week.
“She always got the sense that something would happen with them eventually,” the source shared with Us Weekly, noting that the Mother’s Day star did believe Pitt loved the Oscar-winning actress. “She didn’t feel that Angelina was truly the one who Brad was meant to stay with. She always felt that Angelina was too complex for him. He’s a pretty simple guy.”
A second insider explained, “Jen does wish Brad luck and the best. She feels like she’s happy, and she wants him to be happy too. Jen does not hold on to any negativity from her marriage to Brad.”
Aniston decided to fly to NYC from L.A. amid the Brangelina news on Friday, September 23, and has since been joined by Theroux, 45. “She’s being hounded so much that she’s leaving town,” a source told Us at the time.
A masseuse was spotted at the pair’s apartment during the day on Saturday, and the couple enjoyed a dinner date with friends later that night at the Smile restaurant in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood.
