Aniston ‘to live apart from fiancé’
Jennifer Aniston and her fiancé Justin Theroux will reportedly be living on opposite sides of the US for the immediate future.
Actor-and-producer Justin Theroux's TV project The Leftovers has been commissioned for a ten-part series by HBO. Shooting is slated to begin in a few weeks and will take six months, meaning Justin will be based in New York City while Jennifer remains in Los Angeles.
"Ever since Justin started working on The Leftovers this has been on the cards. And while Jennifer had initially considered uprooting from LA for the majority of the period, she now wants to stay put in LA and share the burden of travelling back and forth at weekends," a source told British magazine Grazia. "There have been a lot of heated fights on the matter, but ultimately Justin doesn't want to push it too far, it's a precarious situation, but it looks like they will be leading separate bi-coastal lives."
Jennifer seemingly has no interest in relocating to New York, having previously described the city as like "living in a fishbowl". Her desire to stay on the West coast, while Justin prefers being on the East coast, has reportedly caused issues between them. Even though Jennifer's schedule is believed to be lighter from November, she wants to remain in Los Angeles.
"He would love nothing more than to have Jen with him when he's working in New York, especially as she's going to be quite free for a while. Jennifer is OK staying there if she's working, but wants to spend downtime at their new Bel Air mansion," the insider added. "Last time she was in Manhattan she felt panicky and claustrophobic."
There has been much speculation about when the pair will eventually tie the knot. They got engaged in August last year, but failure to agree on where to set up home, along with extensive work on their Bel Air mansion, are said to have postponed the nuptials. It now seems Justin's work on The Leftovers will further delay their wedding plans.
"This move is certainly going to put wedding plans on hold until 2014. There's no talk of calling it off, but everything is seriously on the back-burner and the focus now is on how they'll divide their time and make it work during the next six months," a source revealed. "It's far from ideal and everyone's hoping they'll make it work."
