Should I keep my mouth shut?

My sister has broken up with her boyfriend reciently, and I think she is handeling fine. But I have learned that my (and my sisters) best friend is together with my sister's ex. She doesn't know I know. She doesn't want my sister to know. Everytime I see my friend, I get so angry at her, even thought it has nothing to do with me. My friend and my sister have had problems over this guy in the past. I don't know if I should confront my friend and ask her why she never told us (cause that's what friends do, right?), or if I should tell my sister about the relationship. It's driving me crazy and I'm done. I want to get this weight off my shoulders. So someone please tell me what I should do.

While I do not know your circumstances I.E if your sis sees your friend often or whenever she comes over to your house etc. But chances are that one random day your sis is going to learn the truth and if not from you then by some other means.

In so it may be best to tell your sis or else risk this blowing back on you.

I don't know what i would do but i feel that you should tell your sister about the ex. It's not your problem but it's going to blow up between your sister and your friend and you don't won't to have to choose.

wow, thats tough. I don't think that there is a win win sisuation in this any way shape or form, so you gotta think, who's more important, your sister or your friend? 
just keep in mind, you can have countless of friends, but only one sister. 
hope this helps! :)
