Seems like singer John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston might be back together again. The on-again, off-again relationship has been more ‘off’ than on, with the Mayer and Aniston breaking up permanently last year, but rumors started last month John Mayer was wooing Aniston again. Several sources reported Jennifer Aniston has been receiving gifts from John Mayer and that he’d even flown her out to Manhattan to visit him recently. Now, John Mayer himself just told 180,000 fans at a concert at the Hollywood Bowl he and Jennifer are definitely back together. So is it true?
According to Showbiz Spy, Mayer told concert goers, “I believe in second chances! You might have been a pain in the ass the last time around, but you can still start over again from home base,” he said. The problem is, from all reports, it was actually John Mayer who was the “pain in the ass”, with the on-again, off-again Aniston relationship. So much so, if the couple are back together, this could be why Jennifer Aniston hasn’t said anything yet. After all, why tempt fate when you’re back with someone you couldn’t get to commit or really trust the first time around?
The couple first began dating in February, 2008, broke up once, got back together, then called it quits in March, 2009. The Daily Telegraph back then said Jennifer Aniston had broken up with John Mayer because of his ‘Twitter obsession’, but it wasn’t really about Twitter, only that Mayer wasn’t paying Aniston the attention she felt she deserved.
Not surprising though as, at the time, Aniston was nearing 40 years old and Mayer just 30. As most of us women know, men mature a lot later than women so, while Aniston was getting obsessed with marriage and babies (and who can blame her? Women aren’t like men, who can have babies well into their 60s and 70s), John Mayer was more interested in writing banal one-liners on Twitter at all hours of the day and night, than committing to a real relationship.
A year can make a difference though, particularly as it seems the pair have always still carried a ‘thing’ for each other. Maybe this time around, things will be different, especially as Mayer seems to realize he has a tendency to be a bit of “an ass”.
Jennifer Aniston, meanwhile, has been doing the rounds promoting her new movie “The Switch”, a movie that just bombed at the box office on opening weekend. Aniston has also been busy pushing her new perfume launch. Simply entitled “Jennifer Aniston”, she had a lavish perfume launch at Harrod’s in London last month. Reviews, so far, say the “Jennifer Aniston” perfume is lovely and is selling well. Now, let’s hope she has similar success with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Mayer. Aniston isn’t getting any younger, but let’s hope John Mayer’s getting a bit more mature.
