Emotions are running high in the Jennifer Anistonand Justin Theroux split.

ED SHEERAN: Doc Almost Ready to Rock
There's a new documentary about Ed Sheeran headed our way, but don't expect too much dirt -- the flick is not only authorized, it was directed by one of Ed's relatives.
Deadline reports that Songwriter, directed by Sheeran's cousin Murray Cummings, is generating a lot of interest at the Berlin Film Festival. Cummings has been working on the movie for several years, filming Ed on the road and in the studio, as well as in some private moments. He says, “I felt privileged to be allowed in the studio. I met a lot of his fans on tour and I realized they would love to be sat where I’m sat, so I thought, wouldn’t it be cool to make something where they can be sat in with him while he’s writing a song.”
Songwriter is not a finished product at this point, but Cummings hopes to have it ready for release this year.
