They wowed Hollywood with a high-profile Oscar date.
It turned out to be one of their last.
Posing arm-in-arm for photographs in what was their official coming out as a couple after a year of dating each other off and on, Jennifer Aniston and the douchebag she brought as a date were the talk of the Academy Awards.
Then Aniston headed to Europe to promote Marley & Me and John Mayer stayed in L.A. to work on his lame music. Just days after Aniston returned, they ended it.
"They had some disagreements and decided to not continue to see each other," a source tells People. "Jen is moving on with her life like always. She seems happy."
A second source says Mayer broke up with Aniston after she returned from Europe. Either way, it's not the first time Aniston, 40, and Mayer, 31, have split.
In August of 2007, Mayer held an impromptu press conference outside his gym in New York, explaining to celeb gossip media: "I ended a relationship to be alone because I don't want to waste somebody's time if something's not right."
Lately the couple seemed happy, though in a recent interview, Jennifer Aniston said she didn't believe any relationship was perfect or was meant to last a lifetime.
"Whoever said that every relationship has to last forever?" she was quoted as saying in the U.K.'s Mail on Sunday's You magazine. "That's hoping for too much."
Oh well. We're sure the d-bag will nail some other iconic Hollywood babe soon enough. Click to enlarge some recent pics of John and Jen, together and apart:
