Last week, we awoke to the frankly shocking news that Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston have split up.

The couple, who were married in August 2015, released a joint statement about the separation, which read: "We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.

"Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly."

"Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another," the statement added.

Matt Le Blanc has now become the first of Jennifer’s Friends co-stars to speak publicly about the split.

He told The Sun: ‘I haven’t spoken to Jennifer about it, but I’m sure she’s doing OK right now.

‘She’s a big girl.’

One of the main reasons cited as the cause of the split is that Jennifer wanted to live in LA while Justin was happier in New York.

They lived together in a mansion in Bel Air (LA), which Jennifer had recently been interviewed about in Architectural Digest.

She was quoted as saying: "I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there's nowhere else I want to be."

But a source told Entertainment Tonight: “Justin has a very diverse friend group, and he likes that they're not all 'in the industry. He's friends with people in the restaurant world, writers, comedians, artists, tattoo artists. It's an eclectic group and he doesn't have that type of network in LA."

"Justin can hop on his [motorcycle], walk in the neighborhood, hang at a bar and all that without being bothered, but for Jen, the paparazzi are all over her," the source noted.

“He really wanted her to be comfortable [in New York].
