Justin, 45, later deleted the pic – but not before Jen, 47, caught wind of it. ‘She blew up at him in a series of calls and Skypes,’ a pal says.

Justin only finished work on  The Leftovers in Australia six weeks ago before jetting off to his next project in Germany. ‘She’s annoyed he’s out having fun with other women when he should be home in LA,’ adds the friend.
