Washington: Jennifer Aniston’s secret half-brother Alex John Aniston is reportedly a ‘scruffy punk’ who leads a nomadic life.
The ‘Friends” star shares the same father as 22-year-old, who unlike his elder sister favours a nomadic existence as a “boho surfer”.
Going by the name of AJ, he is said to split his time between Santa Cruz in California and Alaska.
“He had a mattress in the back of his van, always had the same pair of pants with 20 patches on it and only had three shirts,” Contactmusic quoted friend Samantha Robles, who works as a body piercer at Chimera Tattoo Studio, as telling Australian magazine New Idea.
“He just hung out in his van on the beach, and would come in all sandy,” she said.
“Santa Cruz has a large population of transient punk kids, usually travelling north,” her boyfriend Mateo said.
‘‘When I talked to AJ last, him and his girlfriend were doing something in Alaska, like farming. I think her family had land up there,” he revealed.
The reported college drop-out had attended his 43-year-old sister’s premiere for ‘Along Came Polly’ when he was 14, but has otherwise managed to stay out of spotlight.
However, former neighbour Rich Koslowski claims his identity was well known in Santa Cruz because he was spotted with his famous father John Aniston.
“I figured out who he was when one day I saw the dad turn up. I had friends out back and AJ and John were going through the garbage can. I talked to them briefly,” he said.
