Jennifer Aniston has officially shot down fiance, Justin Thoreaux‘s proposed plan for the couple to live in New York City part-time, and the actress is refusing to live anywhere but in Southern California, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Jen’s refusal to leave L.A. full time is the secret behind the couple’s stalled relationship., a source tells Radar exclusively.
While the couple seemed to be on a direct route to marriage, there has been no announcement but plenty of reports of trouble. But Jen and Justin are happy, the source tells Radar, with one major life-changing decision delaying their wedding: where to live.
As Radar reported, Thoreaux has been miserable living in sunny Los Angeles. But Jen has refused to move to New York.
In an attempt to break the impasse and formalize the start of their new life together Justin proposed a bi-coastal solution.
“He suggested the couple could live in New York City part-time, no more than six months a year (and L.A. the rest of the time),” the source said. “Justin misses the Big Apple, and his friends. His entire life was in New York, and he uprooted his entire life to move to LA to be with Jen.
“He thinks it’s time Jen start to compromise, but she is absolutely refusing to live on the East Coast, even part-time.”
That refusal by Jen has led to the delay in marriage by a couple that seemed quickly headed down the altar. Jen has settled in Los Angeles and even spent a significant sum fixing up her house, where she expects to live with Justin.
As previously reported, Jen has done extensive renovations to her $21 million estate.
According to public records filed with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, the 44-year-old had a chicken house renovated on the grounds of her 8,500-square-foot mansion.
Instead of demolishing the old owner’s coop, she had it upgraded! It’s located behind the guest house and was recently decked out with a luxurious wooden deck.
Also at the property: a private vineyard, pool, landscaped gardens, high-tech indoor gym, library, gourmet kitchen, butler’s kitchen, a dining room that overlooks an outdoor water feature and a master bedroom complete with a master bathroom and closet.
