Jennifer Aniston has been blasted by the widow of her dead ex.

In a recent interview, the 'Cake' star revealed that she felt her fiancé, Justin Theroux, was a gift from one of her ex-partners, who died from brain cancer.

However, the widow of Daniel McDonald, Mujah Maraini-Melehi, has condemned the 45-year-old actress in a Facebook message.

She wrote: ''Please respect our love and especially our loss. The children lost their father. I lost my partner.

''I am sorry that Jennifer did not realise 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 she was not present during his long and difficult illness. That said perhaps Daniel's gift was to teach her how to love and appreciate Justin Theroux.''

Daniel - whose relationship with Jennifer ended in 1994 -died in 2007, aged 46, and was a regular performer on Broadway and he made several appearances in TV series.

Mujah also revealed that she tried to connect with Jennifer after losing Daniel, but there was no response from the Hollywood actress.

She wrote: ''After Daniel died, I reached out to her to give her back all the photographs from the time they were together.

''I never got an answer back from her.''
