  • Jennifer Aniston reportedly dumped John Mayer because he spent too much time on Twitter

    Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer split earlier this month but the reason behind their break up may have been revealed – John is obsessed with Twitter!

    The former Friends star is said to be ‘fuming‘ that John spent more time posting updates on the mini-blog site than contacting her.

    Jen, 40, left the US to promote her new film Marley & Me around Europe. While she was away, John, 31, claimed he was too busy to stay in touch.

    John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her e-mails 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”,’ a source told Star magazine.

    But when Jen discovered his frequent posts, she hit the roof.

    ‘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 e-mail, make a call?”. Jen was fuming,’ adds the source.

    The couple ended their on-off romance when Jen returned to the States. Just days later, John posted ‘this heart didn’t come with instructions‘ on his Twitter page.

    Jen and John seemed inseparable at the Oscars this year, laying rumours to rest that they were on the rocks. But weeks later they split for the second time.

    In August last year John called it quits and held an impromptu press conference outside his gym, where he said, ‘I ended a relationship to be alone because I don’t want to waste somebody’s time if something’s not right.’

    Hmmm… he doesn’t sound like a keeper, does he Jen? We’d steer well clear in future!
