The news about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's split shocked everyone but as it turns out, it wasn't really a surprise for those who were close to the couple. Even though the two were together for seven years and were married for two years before calling it off, The Sun reports that the couple had been fighting for months since the time Justin started spending a lot of his time at New York’s edgy art scene.

In order to not give any room for speculations or gossip to emerge, the "best friends" had decided to make the announcement that they had "lovingly" separated. However, prior to the announcement, many were able to see the sudden closeness between Justin and rising star of New York’s art scene, photographer Petra Collins.

At the same time, Justin has reportedly been partying a lot lately. "The reality is he’s been partying with all sorts of people in New York and couldn’t have looked less like a married man," a friend of Justin told the newspaper. "He’s even been telling people he’s single, while she spends most of her time in LA doing yoga, eating healthily and living a quiet life."

The couple reportedly had plans of making the announcement of their split soon after various speculations about their fallout started emerging. In order to get ahead of various other tabloids, the two came out with a statement of their own. "They tried to imply they were announcing this to get on the front foot, but they feared the truth might emerge any minute. Too many people had started to realize," the source added.

Some of the rumors revolving around their split started surfacing when it was seen that Justin was spending a lot of time away from Jennifer in New York. “He’s been pretty much living in New York full time and growing close to other people, so it was only a matter of time," the source said. 

"It’s sad this is how things have ended but they’re very, very different people — both want to move on as painlessly as possible," the source continued. Even though things were not so easy between the two, the couple decided to spend their New Year's together along with their close friends and family.

However, the magazine claims that their close pals were surprised to see how long the marriage lasted keeping in mind that they are two very different people. Despite being tight-lipped about the breakup for the longest time, it was Justin's habit of partying that gave rise to the idea that things were not so good between the couple.

"The arty scene really embraced him. He’s a quirky character with very diverse interests. He loves fashion, design and, weirdly, has a collection of human teeth," the source said. "The reality is Jen just doesn’t fit in. She’s a home girl who likes cozy nights in with friends. He wants to feel cutting-edge and different." 

While the two believed they are perfect for each other, a source close to The Sun said that her close pals knew it right from the beginning that their match may not be so perfect after all. "Everybody knew they weren’t right for each other. Everyone except Jen. He’s charming, charismatic and very likable but poles apart from her," a source said. 

"They just didn’t have anything in common but she’s strong enough to do her own thing. He encouraged her to stay with him in New York, but she left that city lifestyle years ago." The actress is reportedly trying to get hold of her life again by consuming herself in a variety of work.
