Brad Pitt's Family Defend Close Relationship With Jennifer Aniston

Brad Pitt's family have defended their close relationship with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, insisting the actor remains on good terms with her too.

The couple divorced in 2005 after four and half years of marriage and, despite the fact Pitt has since started a family with Angelina Jolie, both his parents Jane and William and his siblings remain friendly with his former spouse.

Jane even paid a visit to Aniston's Malibu house on Father's Day for an afternoon chat, but Pitt's brother Doug is adamant there's nothing unusual about their continued contact.

He says, "Jennifer is a friend of Brad's. Why wouldn't she be a friend of ours?"

The odd family dynamic is reported to have infuriated Angelina Jolie, but earlier this month she denied reports of a rift. In fact, the mom-of-four maintained she was stunned at how welcoming Pitt's family were - both to her and her young brood.

She says, "When I first met them I came in with two adopted children from other countries and I didn't know how they were going to be. But they are equally loving with them."
