Jennifer Aniston and her dad are, allegedly, at odds with each other again because of the actress’s brother, Alex.
According to New Idea, Jennifer Aniston recently found out that John Aniston has been sending her brother a huge sum of money.
Aniston was celebrating her dad’s 87th birthday virtually when she found out that John has been giving Alex’s ex-wife, Adriane Hallek, a small fortune. The money is, allegedly, being used to help raise John’s grandchildren.
Jennifer Aniston’s half-brother is allegedly irresponsible
However, the Friends star didn’t approve of this set up because she believes that it is her half-brother’s responsibility to take care of his kids. To make things worse, Aniston is, allegedly, jealous of how easy it was for Alex to have a baby while she’s struggling with infertility issues.
“Jen tries to stay out of it, but she does step in when she thinks her dad’s being used. Alex is the only thing they argue about. She understands John can’t let those kids starve, but he has a problem with the amount he’s sending. Some say it adds up to a six-figure sum each year and Jen’s worried it’s too much,” the source said.
Jennifer Aniston, John Aniston’s relationship
Jennifer Aniston and her dad were also estranged for a couple of years before the actress finally forgave him.
“Jennifer didn’t speak to him for ages. But since the coronavirus crisis, she has been on the phone almost every day. And not just brief conversations. It’s like she has realized life is very short and she wants her relationship with John to be the best it can be. He’s thrilled that they have reconciled,” the source said.
John Aniston walked out on his daughter and ex-wife
Aniston also spoke about her relationship with her dad during a previous interview. She said that she went to a party and when she got home, her dad was no longer there. It was Aniston’s mom, Nancy Dow, who told her the devastating news.
“She didn’t say he was gone forever. I don’t know if I blocked it, but I just remember sitting there, crying, not understanding that he was gone. And I don’t know what I did later that night or the next day. I don’t remember anything other than it being odd that all of a sudden, my father wasn’t there. And he was gone for a while, about a year,” Jennifer Aniston said.
