After three drug-free years, Sculfor found himself tempted again by the demons he’s battled, and he decided to turn his back on Hollywood – and Jen. “Paul genuinely cared for Jennifer,” a friend tells Star. “But everywhere he turned, he was haunted by the temptation of drugs.”
While Sculfor never intimated that Jen does drugs, the source says he believed they are common within her circle of acquaintances. And having none through an intensive, six-month rehab for cocaine, he was afraid of a relapse.
While Sculfor’s London rep denies that the pair broke up due to pressures on him, “Paul had several heart-to-heart talks with Jen and told her it was best for both of them if they parted,” says the friend. “It was Paul who decided to end it.”
Although pals say that Jen is reeling from the breakup, her predicament is nothing new – and losing ex-husband Brad Pitt, was the cruelest blow.
“I think Jen feels that no man in her life can ever match Brad, and it’s causing all of her relationships to fail,” says a source.
Another insider notes that Jen is constantly talking with her therapist and girlfriends about Brad!
“She can’t move on,” says the source. “She knows she screwed up by not starting a family with him. She kicks herself every day.”
That’s a big source of pain for Jen, say insiders. “The closer she gets to the big 4-0, the more she fears she may have missed out,” says another source. “She believes that if she doesn’t have a baby in the next year or so, it might be too late for her to conceive.”
Meanwhile, Jen’s career doesn’t seem to be faring much better than her disastrous love life. “Jennifer is doing a lot of smaller movies because Hollywood doesn’t see her as a major leading lady,” says an insider. “She can’t open a movie on her name alone.”
Jen’s not too sure where to go from here, says an insider, “It may be time for her to make a move to New York ,” the source suggests. “A change would do her good – and who knows, she may just find Mr. Right!”
Could Brad still be in the picture? Pals point out that she’s still close to her former mother-in-law, Jane Pitt – and Brad and Angelina are having problems. A source reveals, “Jen and Jane still speak often, and Brad’s family is still there for her!”
