Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn remain an item.

Aniston and Vaughn still together

They may have broken up onscreen, but offscreen, Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn remain an item. Both halves of the much buzzed-about couple have denied recent reports claiming that they have ended their relationship. Aniston dismissed the breakup reports during an Oprah appearance that aired Monday, answering No, no, when asked if she and Vaughn had called it quits.

Vaughn, on the other hand, took a more aggressive approach by threatening to sue several tabloids that alleged he was seen kissing a mystery blonde at a charity event in London shortly after he supposedly broke up with Aniston earlier this month.In a statement released by the London law firm Schillings, the attorneys said the actor would be filing a legal complaint against the U.K. Sun and Daily Mirror, as well as against the New York Post, for suggesting that he had either broken up with or been unfaithful to Aniston. Ms. Aniston and Mr. Vaughn had not ended their relationship either at the material time or since, the statement said. The suggestions that he was having a passionate embrace and kiss, or has ever been unfaithful to Ms. Aniston, are false. Vaughn will also reportedly argue that a photo that accompanied the reports was misleading. According to the statement released by Vaughns legal team, the case is expected to go to trial in London High Court in 2007, unless the newspapers settle earlier. Vaughn is currently in London filming the comedy Fred Claus, in which he plays Santas bitter older brother.

Once he returns, Aniston is working to ensure that the couple has plenty of space to enjoy each other's company in private. The former Friends star is in the process of purchasing a home in Beverly Hills for $15 million, the Los Angeles Times reports. Her new digs were designed in the 70s by architect Hal Levitt, a celebrity favorite who has also designed homes owned by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Sex and the City creator Darren Star. The house, which is currently being rebuilt, has six bedrooms and seven baths and more than 9,000 square feet.

Since splitting from Brad Pitt, the actress has been leasing a Malibu beach pad for between $25,000 and $30,000 a month. Before her marriage in 2000, she owned a small home in the Hollywood Hills. Aside from her adventures in real estate, Aniston recently made her directorial debut with the short film Room 10, as part of a contest sponsored by Glamour magazine. She is also slated to produce and possibly star in the comedy-drama Counter Clockwise, based on the works of noted Harvard psychologist Ellen Langer, who was known for her work in the illusion of control, decision-making and aging theories, per the Hollywood Reporter.
