Still swooning? It looks like Jennifer Aniston and ex-boyfriend John Mayer are on good terms after the Friends alum, 51, left a comment on his Instagram Live on Sunday, April 5. The 42-year-old singer made the actress laugh during his tribute to the late Bill Withers.
“Whether he was speaking to you or speaking to an interviewer 15 years ago, 14, 13 years ago, everything he said is useful,” the “Gravity” singer gushed of the “Lean On Me” vocalist who died on March 30 at age 81. “Four percent of the things that I say are useful. One hundred percent of the things he said were useful.”
It seems like Jen found humor in John’s self-deprecating remarks. The beauty commented three crying-laughing emojis during his Live.
“OMG Jen is here,” one fan wrote after seeing the Morning Show star had tuned in. “Jennifer!!!!!” added another.
John and Jen had a tumultuous relationship after first linking up at an Oscar Party in February 2008. Their romance only lasted until August of that year. “I ended a relationship to be alone because I don’t want to waste somebody’s time if something’s not right,” the musician reportedly told paparazzi outside of his gym at the time.
Within the year, the two briefly rekindled their romance and walked the red carpet at the Oscars together in February 2009. Following their public debut, the “New Light” singer told Ryan Seacrest he was there for “moral support.”
“At some point, you feel comfortable and say, ‘This is the choice I want to make,’” he said about going public with his relationship at the time. “I think a year is a pretty good period of time with which to say, ‘Let’s go have a really good time at the Oscars!’” Despite coming out as a couple, they split for good one month later.
Today, it seems like the former lovers are on good terms. Unfortunately, John can’t say that about all his exes. Ex Jessica Simpson discussed her tumultuous relationship with the guitarist in her memoir, Open Book. In an interview with Andy Cohen on April 1, the “Daughters” singer admitted he hadn’t read the book and doesn’t plan on it. “As Pee Wee Herman says in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure before the movie of his life is about to play out at the end, he’s not watching the movie, and the reason he’s not watching the movie, he says, ‘I don’t have to watch it, Dottie, I lived it.’ And I think that’s prescient here.”
