Four years after Jennifer Aniston split with husband Brad Pitt, she and her ex's partner, Angelina Jolie, will rub shoulders in public for the first time, at the same two Hollywood events this coming weekend.
According to OK! Magazine, Angelina and Jennifer will both attend the Night Before the Oscars party in Beverly Hills, the evening before the Academy Awards.
Over the years, there have been a host of events at which the two women were both expected, but one or both of the women were either no-shows or dropped out of the event.
Jennifer is expected to attend the pre-Oscar party and the following day, the Oscars, with her boyfriend, rocker John Mayer, who just confirmed his attendance to the latter event, publicly.
"I'm going to the Oscars," Mayer told the PopSugar Web site. "It's my first Oscars. And it's my first being an Oscar boyfriend."
According to a source, Jennifer is ready to attend an event that will also feature attendance from the Hollywood super couple.
"It's taken time, but she's getting past her insecurities about Brad and Angie and their huge happy family," a source told OK! "Though the meeting is sure to be difficult, Jen knows it has to happen and now couldn't be better timing."
Another source said Angelina and Brad, who are both nominated for Oscars at this year's ceremony, aren't concerned about their coincidental upcoming party attendance.
"They've shown up for every major awards show and have every intention of enjoying themselves at the party," a source told the mag. "They don't consider it Jen's turf."
