Did Twitter Kill Mayerston?


Now that we’ve had a couple of weeks to get used to the idea that Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer are dunzo, again, folks are starting to dish as to what the cause of the break-up was this time around. As we learned a couple of weeks ago, John apparently broke up with Jennifer after she returned from a trip to Europe … but today, we’re hearing that it was Jen that broke up with John … reportedly (and laughingly) because of his obsession with Twitter:

People claiming to be friends of the actress have told Star magazine that she finished the affair after discovering Mayer, 31, spent hours on the networking website, despite telling her he was too busy to get in touch with her. The pair started dating in April 2008, but have broken up several times. However, they appeared inseparable at the Oscars last month. A source claimed Aniston decided Mayer was not committed enough to her and called time on their romance having found hourly updates on his Twitter page. The source said: “John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her emails and when she would finally catch up with him, he’d say: ‘I’ve been so busy with work. I’m sorry I haven’t had time to call you back.” The source added: “Jen was fuming. There he was, telling her he didn’t have time for her and yet his page was filled with Twitter updates. Every few hours, sometimes minutes, he’d update with some stupid line. And in her mind, she was like ‘He has time for all this Twittering, but he can’t send me a text, an email, make a call?’.” It has also been claimed musician John made no attempt to cover up his Twitters. The source said: “He didn’t even deny it. He knew he was avoiding her. So when she called him on it and ended things, he just said OK, and that he was sorry it didn’t work out. “He took the break-up like a man.” Even so, shortly after Aniston’s call, Mayer’s Twitter update read: ‘This heart didn’t come with instructions.’

LOL! Man, as much as I wish this report was true, I’m afraid that it’s prolly a bit too ridiculous to be totally true … right? Anyone that follows John Mayer on Twitter knows that he is an avid tweeter and does post many times a day. If he truly did chose Twitter over Jennifer Aniston then he prolly deserved to get dumped. My guess is that the truth is prolly somewhere in the middle … he tweeted a lot and she hated it a lot … and then dunzo. This might be the first reported case of celebrity break-up due to Twitter-related complications … which is really sad. I just hope that this report doesn’t turn people off to using Twitter … I love it and can’t get enough — a fact that David is well aware of and is fine with … I think :)

    Maybe the other day when he crossed his legs, that wasn’t the only time his penis fell asleep.

  • LOL! This sounds like a Friends storyline. If only it were still around today!

  • I feel like Jennifer Aniston has a lot of “friends” who always share her business with the media…

  • Sue.

    Regarding Friends…what is David Schwimmer doing these days? It’s like he stopped acting after Friends. Such a waste :(

  • Ursula

    She needs to move and live her life. The real problem is she takes him back and he could care less, seems after awile he is like alot people theywant a variety,but Aniston seem to be more mature than him. I really wish her the best and i truly believe that it’s not with Mayer.

  • It just seems like Jen just can not get it together, nor does she learn from her mistakes. If it did not work the first time; chances it won’t work at all. I think that she needs to stay in “single mode” until she can find herself, or get therapy as to why she is so needy and unstable. That “special someone” will come along, she just has to wait on the right moment and place in her life, but when he does come along, DO NOT COMPARE HIM TO BRAD PITT. move on, please

  • nicole

  • Char

    OH…. If I had so much work done I would be stunning too.
    busy with herself is not an attribute.

  • Jkeys Miami

    am i the only one that hated Friends, that show was stupid.

  • Way to go Jen, get rid of the loser and find someone who will make you the most important person in their life. You deserve better than john mayer and that Cheater brad pitt. He is out there but be more selective next time

    still watch reruns everyday. One of the best shows ever

  • Monica

    After the first break-up Jen didn’t see that John Mayer’s a sell-out douche bag.

    He’s trouble and she’s got a ton of money to roam the entire world to find the right man.


    Look, i can totally believe twitter did it… what?!??!! My husband gets pissed if I stay on the computer too long! So, if he was dissing her by tweeting non-stop and not getting back to her, then sure… I’d break up with him too. Good for her! As to whether she needs a man— she doesn’t. And she just has to remember that.

  • Dinora

    JA don’t waist ur time whit tha Looooooooooooosssser. Move on with ur life. The good man will can to ur life whit out u looking for him. But JM is a desastre. Just Be u an B Original

  • Crystal

    If she broke up with because he was too busy to call or write…then GOOD for her. NO ONE is too busy to call or send a two second text. Not a good friend or boyfriend for that matter.
    And Friends ROCKED! One of the best shows of all time.

  • piper, with a low

    I liked Friends until the ‘We were on a break’ storyline. I was totally on Ross’ side; Rachel shouldn’t have said that they should take a break if the b*tch didn’t mean it.

    As for Schwimmer, I think that he’s focusing on directing – for stage, television and film. IMO, Schwimmer would be a chump to want to step back into pu$$y-whipped Ross’ shoes again.

    Jen is sooo better off. John has some much needed growing up to do. She definitely needs to just relax and enjoy singledom. It appears she is trying extremely hard to forget Brad. So what its in your face all the time how happy Brad and angelina are. You’ll be ok!!! This too shall pass. Ultimate revenge is being happy with you.Stop trying to prove a point. A happy relationship will come!!

  • la princesa

    Schwimmer did the Madagascar cartoons…

  • la princesa

    This is just a stupid, stupid story. Poor misunderstood John yet again……

    I contend they are secretly married/living together.

  • Poor Jennifer! Just after her cutie nudie and just after saying that she feels better at 40, and she thinks she is better looking at 40 than she ever has been….what a blow to her newly found self confidence! Perhaps she will do that thing where she cries but no tears fall and she takes her hand and waves it in front of her face as if to stave off the non-tears.

  • Hey Jen,
    How about John Stamos? Super nice guy and sssoooo cute you two would make a darling couple. Give it a try.
