Jennifer Aniston is in hot water for allegedly using her ex-boyfriend’s death for promotion.

The widow of the man Jennifer Aniston recently described as the first true love of her life criticized the actress for using her late husband as a publicity tool.

“He was my first love — five years we were together,” Aniston recently said of Daniel McDonald, who passed away from brain cancer in 2007. “He would have been the one! But I was 25, and I was stupid.” McDonald would later go on to marry actress and filmmaker Mujah Muraini-Melehi after his relationship with Jennifer Aniston ended.

However McDonald’s widow was not happy with the fact that Jennifer Aniston is using his name in interviews. Muraini-Melehi posted about the incident on her Facebook Page.

From Redbook:

Mujah told Inside Edition, “Daniel and Jennifer had a relationship over 20 years ago, when they were both still very young. She made a life choice, but so did he. I am sorry that Jennifer did not realize the treasure that was Daniel when she had the chance, long before he and I met and long before he died. It pains me to read the headlines that allude to her losing him tragically when in fact she was not present during his long and difficult illness. Perhaps Daniel’s gift was to teach her how to love, and to appreciate what she has with Justin Theroux.”

“After Daniel died, I reached out to her to give her back all the photographs from the time they were together,” she wrote. I never got an answer back from her.”
