Is Brad crushing on Courteney?

He might have been married to her best friend Jennifer Aniston, but Brad Pitt is reportedly crushing hard on her ride-or-die, Courteney Cox.

Brad and Courteney, who first met when he started dating Jen in 1998, were recently reunited at a ROCK4EB! charity event in Malibu.

And despite the guest list including the likes of Cindy Crawford, Heidi Klum and his old pal Sting, an insider says it was 52-year-old Court’s side that he was glued to.

“Sparks were flying big time,” the source tells New Idea.

“There’s so much history and affection between those two.”

Over the years, actress Courteney – who has been in an on-off relationship with Snow Patrol star Johnny McDaid, 40, for the last few years - has made no secret of her love for Brad, 53.

Despite obviously siding with her Friends co-star Jen when he divorced her and shacked up with Angelina Jolie, 41, she’s always been vocal in her support for him.

“I don’t think he was trying to hurt Jen,” she told Vanity Fair soon after their split in 2005. “I don’t think that Brad is malicious, or a liar.”

What’s more, 47-year-old Jen is apparently A-OK with them hanging out, with the source claiming that she’s so happy with husband Justin Theroux, 45, that she gave their reunion the green light.

“Jen… loves that he’s back in her circle,” says the source.
