New York: American actress Jennifer Aniston’s alleged new love interest, ‘True Blood’ actor Chris Gartin, is the ex-husband of one of her closest friends.
Gartin’s ex-wife Joanne is an Australian-born wedding planner-to-the-stars, who been a close friend of Aniston since a long time.
It was due to the friendship that Aniston met Gartin, reports a news website.
“I’m really not at all interested in it,” Joanne said when asked about the relationship between Aniston and Gartin.
“Jennifer has been my friend - our friend for over 10 years. We have known each other a long time,” she added.
The romance between Chris and Aniston was discovered when the couple was photographed leaving dinner at Los Angeles’ Sunset Tower Hotel July 1, in the same vehicle.
“It’s been difficult for Joanne,” Robbie Ahlfeld, Joanne’s stepmother told Australian magazine Woman’s Day.
“It just seems so bizarre to me because Jo and Jen are such good friends. I find it very strange that Jen would do that to Jo,” she added.
