When the sad news broke that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were divorcing overnight, all eyes turned to Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston.

Jen and Brad were still married when Angelina, 41, and Brad, 52, fell in love on the set of their film Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004, and began dating shortly after Brad and Jen filed for divorce in 2005.

According to friends close to Jen, 47, the actress now sees the couple’s divorce as payback. While discussing the famous marriage’s demise with a pal, Jen reportedly said, ‘Yeah, that’s karma for you!’

The insider spilled to Us Weekly, ‘She always got the sense that something would happen with them eventually. She didn’t feel that Angelina was truly the one who Brad was meant to stay with. She always felt that Angelina was too complex for him. He’s a pretty simple guy.’

Another source adds that while Jen ‘admittedly feels sort of satisfied about Brad and Angelina’s split, [she] never wanted this for them or wished this on them’.

In the past, the actress has insisted that ‘she wants [them] to be happy’ and ‘does not hold on to any negativity from her marriage to Brad’.
