An American magazine has come up with claims that Courteney Cox got flirty with Brad Pitt. The two reportedly attended the fourth annual charity ROCK4EB.

According to a report in Life & Style, Cox was getting close with Jennifer Aniston's former husband. An alleged source said: "Courteney behaved like a smitten fan girl around Brad. She kept telling him how great he looked and flirted with him like crazy."

"Jen was annoyed when she heard about it. She considers it a betrayal," the insider added.

Pitt is single after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on 19 September citing irreconcilable differences. As for Cox, she is back with Johnny McDaid. The 51-year-old actress, who is best known for her role as Monica Geller on the NBC sitcom Friends, and the Snow Patrol guitarist had split in 2015.

Previously, Justin Theroux said it is "nonsense" to drag Aniston's name into Jolie and Pitt's divorce. The former Friends star and the Fury actor who were married between 2000 and 2005, split when the actor fell for Jolie on the set of the film Mr And Mrs Smith.

During an interview with Business Insider while promoting his movie The Girl on the Train, Theroux said: "There's an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don't have that appetite. But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to b***h about. It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."
