Jen is no stranger to being a woman scorned, and she shared some words of wisdom about love and relationships with Selena during a dinner date in Los Angeles on May 17. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on Jen’s Justin Bieber love advice for Selena.
Selena Gomez, 21, is still heartbroken over her latest split from on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, and it looks like leaning on BFF Taylor Swift just isn’t going to cut it this time. It appears that Selena has turned to Jennifer Aniston for help getting through her heartache, and Jen had some very helpful advice — and reading material — for her brokenhearted young friend at a dinner that the pair had at Madeo restaurant in LA on May 17, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Jennifer Aniston On Selena Gomez’s Relationships: Actress Gives Dating Advice
Jen Aniston knows better than anyone what it’s like to be betrayed by the man you love. The Friends star went through a very public divorce from ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2005, after he fell in love with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie.
But Jen has finally moved on with fiance Justin Theroux, and now a source says that she was sharing advice with Selena when the two dined at Madeo in LA on May 17, along with two male companions.
“Jennifer was definitely giving Selena love advice. I overheard both of them say Justin’s name and Jennifer was doing most of the talking and Selena was doing a lot of nodding,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They were pretty much talking to each other the whole time, while the two guys were in their own conversation.”
Another source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Selena and Jen were talking for at least two hours while they were tucked away in a back corner of the restaurant.
“They were talking, they were laughing, they seemed to be really into the conversation. As for the guys they were with, one was younger (in his 20s), and the other was a middle-aged man (he looked like an agent). It definitely wasn’t Justin [Theroux]. They ate a full dinner and they looked like they were having a really good time.”
The source adds that Selena and Jen also may have been “discussing a potential project” — wouldn’t that be exciting! When the two beauties wrapped up their night together, Jen left Selena with a really sweet parting gift to help her heal after her split from Justin.
“Jennifer had a book with her sitting on the table called A Return To Love and she gave it to Selena before they left,” our source reveals. “I recognize the book, it’s by Marianne Williamson and focuses on spiritual principles and loving yourself. It was like Jennifer was her big sister.”
An eyewitness at the restaurant tweeted about Selena and Jen’s dinner on May 17, according to OceanUp.
