A Mirror report quoted a source as saying, "As soon as the accusations about domestic violence went public, Jen was straight on the phone to Brad. She wanted to let him know that she would be there for him, no matter what, and she's told him again that she'll appear in court if she has to, although she knows it would never come to that."
"Jen's words of encouragement and support have come at such a tumultuous time in his life," the source said and added that Brad and Jen's friendship blossomed in recent times. "She's told him she knows he'd do the same for her. This isn't necessarily about them back together... she just has a lot of love for Brad," the source further said.
