Brad Pitt is texting Jennifer Aniston and we don't know what to do

Brad Pitt is reportedly texting his ex-wife and we're just not sure what to make of this information...

Did the past 12 years even happen?

That is the question we are asking ourselves today as news of Brad Pitt texting Jennifer Aniston surfaces in headlines.

A source reportedly told US Weekly that Brad tracked down Jen's phone number via a "tangled web" of contacts so he could wish her happy birthday in February. Now, they're allegedly texting on the regular! 

Brad recently split from his wife of two years and partner of 12 years, Angelina Jolie, whom he started seeing shortly after his separation from Jen.

Now, the 53-year-old actor is hitting up his ex on the old iPhone. (Full disclosure: They could very well be Android users.)

Brad is apparently confiding in Jen during his battle with Ange for joint custody of their six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight.

"Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past,” the source revealed.

Um, what?! Did Brad not dump Jen for Ange in 2005? Did they not have one of the most high-profile divorces in Hollywood history? Does he really think he can just waltz back into Jen's life and be her best friend?!

We won't stand for it!

But, you know who will? Jen's new hubby, Justin Theroux, who is totally cool with a few texts between the exes.

“Justin is OK with them being friends,” the source said, adding that he knows “Jen just wants to be nice.”

Brad and Jen were married in 2000 after dating for two years. In 2005 Jen filed for divorce, setting the rumour mill spinning with stories about Brad's relationship with his Mr & Mrs Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie. Brad later admitted to falling in love on the film's set.

Meanwhile, Jen moved on with Justin Theroux, whom she began dating in 2011. The pair married in 2015.
