In Touch has exclusively learned that Jennifer Aniston visited her estranged dying mother, Nancy Dow, at her North Hollywood apartment on May 12 — for the first time in nearly five years.
“The last time Jen saw her was in 2011 after Nancy had a stroke,” the insider explains, adding that she brought along Justin Theroux, whom she had just started dating.

Since Jen’s last visit, her 79-year-old mother suffered a series of strokes and has lost the ability to walk and speak. The insider says that “Jen and Nancy will never have a close bond again,” however, “Jen must have had a wake-up call and wanted to see her mother one last time before she passes.”
