With so much rumor and innuendo swirling around in the wake of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's celebrity-marriage-paradigm-shifting break-up, there's only one place we can turn for reliable information: Jennifer Aniston's MySpace blog. While the couple has refrained from talking to the media, virtual Jen (449 friends in her network, a celebrity even in cyberspace) is candid about the dissolution of their relationship and their plans for the future:
Well, since everything is formally stated, I guess I should address it, because I don't feel like answering a million e-mails about this. The split was no one's fault, please don't blame Brad or myself for this, things don't always work out the way you want them to...and this is one of those things.
We haven't yet made it known if we're divorcing, because we're not exactly sure ourselves, we're taking a break from each other though. The tabloid stories weren't true, no one was cheating, no one was carousing around town, it just didn't work out. Brad and I remain friends, although this will take some getting used to and I hope that you all understand that this will be hard for me and him in the next coming months, not only will we have fan outrage but media scrutinizing us, and it'd be easier if we just had everyone's support. I'm probably not going to answer much about this, and knowing Brad, he won't answer anything, so don't bother him about it. We plan to remain friends and business partners. I thank all those fans for their support, I appreciate it a lot. Thank you.
Keeping your cred with the bloggers is just as valuable as a million-dollar payday from the glossies.
UPDATE: The Jennifer Aniston MySpace blog responds to our earlier link by pulling down "Jennifer Aniston's" statement about the break-up. That kind of authentic hissyfit totally makes us think the blog is real!
UPDATE: Now the whole thing is gone. We're really going to miss "virtual Jen" and her candid online journalling.
