Jimmy Kimmel Steps In To Help Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux’s Marriage

‘Kimmel’s concern for Aniston comes from a sincere place’ claims pal.

As Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux aim to turn around their troubled marriage, sources revealed to , the actress’ old Hollywood pal Jimmy Kimmel has stepped in to help!

“Jimmy loves Justin, but that’s because he made Jen happy and he’s only friends with Justin as long as he keeps doing that,” spills the snitch.

As fans know, Kimmel, 43, and Aniston, 48, have a long-running friendship,

and now sources say Theroux, 46, “needs to understand that if he blows it with Jen, he’s going to be on Jimmy’s personal s**t list.”

“This isn’t a case of Jimmy trying to play marriage counselor and get these two back together, it’s about Jimmy being very clear to Jen that he’s got her back no matter what happens with Justin,” continues the informant.

Kimmel’s concern for Aniston comes from a sincere place, claims the pal.

“He’s constantly reminding Jen that she can have any man she wants if things don’t work out with Justin. His flattery goes a long way with Jen.”

As Radar previously reported exclusively, the duo’s two-year marriage was on the brink and erupted in a face-to-face showdown over the holidays after they had spent two and a half months apart.

Sources claimed the incident sent the two hurtling toward a $225 million divorce.The vicious bust-up at their Bel-Air mansion on Dec. 14 was “the fight to end all fights,” according to insiders — who saw a furious Justin storm out and head to a luxury hotel.

“It was a stupid argument — the kind of disagreement most couples have. But this time things spiraled out of control, and Jen flipped out,” a source tattled to Radar.
