Selena Gomez and Justin Theroux reportedly have turned their relationship into ‘something more than a friendship’, and Jennifer Aniston is not happy about this newfound romance between her ex-husband and the young singer.

An insider spoke to Life & Style about the budding relationship between the two, saying Gomez and Theroux have ‘known each other for years through their manager’. However, since both of them were in serious relationships up until very recently, things never went beyond the friendship. Now, the two ‘are falling for each other’ despite the 20-year age difference between them.

The couple do have a lot to talk about in terms of recent heartbreak. Selena and Justin Bieber broke up again in their long-term on-off relationship late last year. Right before that, she broke up with The Weeknd, whom she had dated for almost a year. Justin and Jennifer Aniston got married on August 5, 2015 and got a divorce earlier this year after more than two years of marriage.

It was previously reported that Gomez and Theroux were exchanging flirty texts. The source has now stated, “Initially they leaned on each other for emotional support after going through messy breakups. They FaceTime and text late at night and have intimate conversations about where they’re going in life and their career goals. They’re extremely honest and open with each other.

Friends of the singer and actor are not that supportive of this new budding romance, thinking it can only end in tears and regret. However, Gomez’s friends were publicly against her romance with Bieber as well, which did not sway her from her choices.

According to the insider, Aniston is not happy with this new romance either. The source stated, “Jen is not happy about it.” The source further added that she does not know where the two have gone in their emotional connection to one another.

If she ever get to know the full details, ‘she’d be horrified’. The source said, “She’d think of it as a complete betrayal on both their parts.

Part of the reason Jennifer would feel betrayed is her own history with Gomez. The two met in 2009 and Gomez has since made her admiration and even reverence of Aniston very public.

The insider also said, “part of her attraction to Justin is knowing how much Jen loved him. The fact that the woman she idolised so much prized him only makes Justin all that more appealing.”

Aniston talked about Gomez to E! News at the premiere of her movie, Cake in 2014, saying, “We have the same manager. She’s just like a little cherub that I feel like I wanna take care of. And we’ve just met through our manager. She’s been extremely supportive and wonderful.

Later that same year, Gomez said in an interview with KTU, “She’s [Jennifer] very cool and very sweet. She kind of gives me a lot of, like, maternal advice.
