Nigh three weeks ago now, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that after three kids and 10 years of marriage, they’re getting divorced. Why? Well no one knows exactly, but names like Margot Robbie, J.Lo, Blackjack, and Blake Lively have been thrown around in the tabloids as reasons the Afflecks could no longer make it work.
Since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their long-rumored divorce on June 30th, 2015, the world has been fixated on a singular issue: the Greek debt crisis. Also: whether, at any given moment, Ben Affleck is wearing his wedding ring or not. Let’s take a closer look at Ben’s tortuous love affair—with his ring.
It’s Wednesday, which means America’s beloved gossip rags have released their new issues for the week. Us Weekly’s cover shouts: “GAMBLING, BOOZE, & CHEATING: JEN’S SECRET HELL” alongside an artfully tattered photo of soon-to-be divorced actors Jen Garner and Ben Affleck. People, the mag that spent the last month groveling at the Afflecks’ feet to get the coveted divorce exclusive, promises something different on its cover: The real story.
From former Gawker writer Maureen O’Connor, here is a perfect interview with Rob Shuter, the celebrity PR guy who handled Ben Affleck’s last breakup (with the other Jen). Shuter spills the tea about all his former clients, including Jessica Simpson, who he says dated the biggest publicity whore of all: John Mayer.
After 10 years and one day of marriage, actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced last week that they’ve decided to divorce. We knew this was coming, but still, we ask: why? What happened in between falling in love on the set of Daredevil (2004) and moving out of a shared bedroom in their Los Angeles home and into different, private areas of that same home?
With Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s slowly churning divorce finally etched into concrete for eternity, America’s newest Batman is moving out of the couple’s Los Angeles mansion and into... a “private area within the family’s home”! It seems weird, but once you see photos of Affleck’s new digs, you’ll totally understand his decision.
After 10 years of marriage, Ben Affleck and Jen Garner are breaking up. Why? People has the exclusive scoop: It’s because “they are really two different people.” Also, per a source: Ben “was a good husband and loves and cares for his wife and family. He was juggling that as well as his career—everyone knows that juggling a family and career is hard.”
Cue the laugh track, because we’ve got a reckless sitcom on our hands: according to reports, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are still going to live together after their divorce. Page Six explains: “Ben, who has been staying in hotels in recent months, will live on the property of their Brentwood marital home, but will not share the main house.”
The actors Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced today, one day after their 10-year wedding anniversary, that they are getting divorced. “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple told People in a joint statement. Our condolences to the Afflecks and congratulations to People for getting that exclusive they so desperately wanted.
Rumors about Jennifer Garner and her husband Ben Affleck’s impending divorce have been swirling for years (remember the Blake Lively car ride?). But they’ve picked up again with a vengeance, after a Radar report that Ben spent Jen’s birthday alone, in Canada—Canada!—without his wedding ring. So if the divorce is just matter of when, not if, the only remaining question is: Who gets the exclusive?
Could beloved celebrity couple “Bennifer 2” be well on their way to a new celebrity nickname: “Jen it’s not your fault” and “He’s such an asshole”? I don’t know, I don’t live in their home or spend much time with them, but I’d stake my reputation on the fact that it seems not out of the realm of possibility.
Jennifer Garner, who used to wear wigs on Alias, has presumably been sitting on the story of her life as an avid streaker for years now, based on the enthusiasm and faux aw-shucks she brought to Conan last night. I'm promoting two movies, she probably said to herself in her dressing room mirror. I can finally tell this story...
As the late night world said goodbye to Jay Leno Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel ignored the fuss and did what Jimmy Kimmel does best: get celebrities, especially Matt Damon, to make fun of themselves.
