All's not well in Jennifer Aniston’s love life, for the former ‘Friends’ star has reportedly been dumped by beau Vince Vaughn.
According to US Weekly magazine, Vaughn called a halt to the couple’s relationship in an emotional phone call at the beginning of September - before he left to film his latest movie ‘Joe Claus’ in London.
The 36-year old actor then cancelled plans for Aniston to visit him in the British capital.
Vaughn allegedly told an insider on September 13 that though the news had not hit the media as yet, the two had already split.
"It's not common knowledge, but we're not together anymore. We've split up," the Daily Mail quoted the actor, as telling the insider.
Pals of the actor, who even asked Aniston to marry him in June, said that Vaughn had called off the relationship after seeing how “needy” she was.
"Vince eventually saw how needy she is, and it scared him off," a pal told the magazine. "Jen lives in a crazy world with all the media. It's just not his thing," another friend said.
A friend of Aniston's also confirmed to US Weekly that the couple were definitely not together anymore. "They're 100 per cent done," the pal said.
However, pals agree that the split has hit Aniston hard.
"She was over Brad for a long time, but now she is really starting to feel bad about herself. She feels like she is living in the shadow of her ex and that she is seen as the 'failed re-bound girl'," a friend said.
One person who does know exactly what Vaughn is going through is Aniston’s ex hubby Brad Pitt, who was also in much of the same situation, a source revealed.
"Brad actually thought Vince was a good guy and liked him when they worked together. He totally understands what Vince is going through with her. Jen is just incredibly needy and controlling and made his life hell," the source said.
"It was more of a 'Good luck, buddy' attitude. Brad doesn't care at this point. But, of course, this is something he would expect - he was in the same trap," the source added.
Aniston and Vaughn were rumoured to have fallen for each other after they co-starred in the flick The Break-Up. However, even though they never confirmed that they were a couple, rumours of a relationship quickly started making the rounds.
