Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt got divorced in 2005. But according to new reports, they're in touch as friends.

People reported Wednesday that an unnamed source confirmed the actors have been texting each other since Pitt's split from Angelina Jolie.

"They have been friends for a while and often text," the source told People. "This is nothing new, he didn't have to jump through hoops to get Jennifer’s number."

Another source, though, told Us Weekly that Pitt obtained Aniston's cell information from a "tangled web" of contacts. That source also says he got her number so that he could wish her happy birthday earlier this month. Apparently, the birthday wishes led to the pair's current texting relationship.

"Brad told her he's having a hard time with his split, and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past," the source told Us Weekly. "Jen just wants to be nice."

To be fair, this whole thing doesn't seem particularly newsworthy. After knowing each other for years, maybe Pitt and Aniston do just want to be friends and talk things out with each other. They were married for five years, after all; even if they're no longer linked romantically, they'll always share a certain bond. (And besides, Aniston and her husband Justin Theroux are totally happy together!)

In September, Angelina Jolie's lawyer confirmed that she was filing for divorce from Brad Pitt. At the time, her attorney told the press the filing was "for the health of the family." Jolie and Pitt are working on a private settlement to determine a custody agreement for their six children, according to People.

Reps for Aniston and Pitt didn't immediately respond to Refinery29's request for comment. We will update this story when we obtain a response.
