Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are purportedly getting a $150 million divorce and the actor allegedly wants to announce the big news before their anniversary.
According to Daily Mail, the “Argo” actor purportedly wants to announce their split right away so that the media hype over the divorce would have died down by the time he starts promoting his upcoming movie.
“They’re already separated,”an insider reportedly told OK! Magazine, as quoted by Hollywood Life. “Ben wants the official statement to come out a few weeks before their 10th anniversary June 29 – which he hopes will give enough time for the news to die down by the time he has to promote Batman v Superman and the other movies he has coming out next year.”
Radar Online speculates Jennifer Garner may have purportedly ran out of patience for Ben Affleck, who is allegedly spotted outside their family home more and more as rumors of their marriage trouble circulated. On Jennifer’s birthday last month, Ben was reportedly seen on a solo trip to Canada without his wedding ring.
Despite divorce rumors, Daily Mail says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were spotted with their two on a family outing in Santa Monica last week with their kids, nine-year-old Violet and six-year-old Seraphina. The couple’s youngest child, three-year-old Samuel, was reportedly not seen with them.
Daily Mail recalls Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner sparking friendship on the set of 2001 movie Pearl Harbor. They also reportedly worked with each other in the set of 2003 film Daredevil. The couple reportedly started dating in 2004 and got married a year after. Ben was previously engaged to Jennifer Lopez until they split in 2004, while Garner was previously married to “Scandal” and “Felicity” star Scott Foley from 2000 to 2003.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s reps are reportedly yet to comment on the issue.
