I know it’s likely slanderous for me to so much as speculate that there might be trouble in paradise when it comes to the Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck‘s marriage. They’re Hollywood’s golden couple! They have adorable kids! How could anything go wrong?! I don’t know, but apparently it has, because some people seem to think they split up and are planning to divorce.
Via the Daily Mail:
The couple, who married in 2005 and share children Violet, nine; Seraphina, six; and Samuel, three, have already separated, according to the Enquirer, and heading for a $150million divorce.
The website also suggest that Affleck, 42, is wanting an official announcement ahead of the duo’s 10th wedding anniversary so that media attention will have died down before he starts promoting upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
The couple have not been pictured together for over a month when they were spotted walking in their Brentwood, California neighbourhood.
Radar Online also ran a report suggesting Garner, 43, has reached breaking point after years of problems in the marriage.
An insider said: ‘Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart.’
They added: ‘Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids.’
Another insider told the publication: ‘Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time.
‘She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She’ll take custody of them.’
I mean, sure, considering the source, this could be a load of boloney. But just because the details might not be right doesn’t mean it can’t be true. A 10 year marriage in Hollywood is an amazing thing, but they’re still human and people do grow apart.
I dunno about this one, guys!
