In brief: No, but

Diverticulitis is not related to aortic aneurysm.
However, if there is constipation, would suggest a good bowel regimen to avoid excessive straining.

In brief: Not usually

They are not usually related but I have seen very rare cases of aorto-enteric fistulas from diverticulitis eroding into the aorta.
Extremely rare.
