Brad Pitt is said to have held a secret meeting with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston during a recent trip to New York.
The pair, who ended their five-year marriage in 2005, met up at a hotel in the city for an hour where Brad unloaded his emotional baggage, according to Grazia magazine.
The Hollywood star allegedly told Aniston about his relationship problems with Angelina Jolie, whom he hooked up with after walking out on the Friends actress.
It comes amid reports that Brad and Jennifer are in regular phone contact and – if true – their latest encounter marks their second private meeting together in the Big Apple this year.
A source told Grazia that Jennifer agreed to visit Brad in his suite at the Essex House hotel, next to Central Park.
‘She arrived at his hotel suite a matter of hours after they had spoken. Brad was unloading his emotional baggage on Jen, which isn’t exactly fair considering their history.’
But the source added: ‘She was quick to tell him she wanted no part in his break-up with Angelina.’
At first she was reported to be reluctant to meet with her former husband.
But the magazine alleges Brad got his mother Jane – who is famously still close to Jen – to persuade her to meet with him and give some advice.
It comes amid claims that his four-year relationship with Angelina has hit the rocks.
Brad lives with Jolie at their £35million Chateau Miraval home with their six children, Maddox, seven, Pax, five, Zahara, four, Shiloh, three, and one-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Aniston was apparently brutally honest with Brad during their exchange, which took place the Friday before last, telling him he was being selfish and had to figure things out on his own.
Later that day Brad flew back to France with son Maddox.
Grazia reported that Angelina is keen to work out their problems, but as far as Brad is concerned it is ‘all but over’.
Some reports suggest he is planning a move to Berlin, away from his family home, where he has friends and can spend time indulging in the city’s architecture.
His reported meet-up with Jen came the day after he attended a political conference with former U.S. president Bill Clinton in New York on September 24.
