Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are allegedly headed for a nasty split, but a neighbor claims they’ve actually been living separate lives for YEARS! Sadly, this break up has been a long time coming, a new report claims.
The end hasn’t been coming for just a few months for Jennifer Garner, 43, and Ben Affleck, 42. Actually, their alleged split has been years in the making, New York Daily News reports. A neighbor of the family is spilling all about the couple’s rumored divorce — get the scoop!
Although they’ve put up a united front at awards shows and with their kids, Daily News’ source claims Ben and Jen have been living separate lives for a very long time. “They had good times when they were living in Brentwood and hanging at Matt [Damon]’s house,” the insider says. “Things were definitely a lot more upbeat and optimistic then. Now there’s friction and tension between them. They’re like two ships passing in the night.”
Divorce reports have been plaguing Ben and Jen for year, but on May 28, OK! magazine reported that the duo is officially “separated,” and that the Batman vs. Superman actor wants the official statement to come out a few weeks before their 10th anniversary on June 29.
“Ben only likes things his way or no way,” NY Daily News’ insider explains. “He’s as stubborn as a mule. He’s not exactly flexible. He is prone to moodiness when he doesn’t get his way. Dealing with him is not a walk in the park.” Oh no! We hope that Ben and Jennifer are able to work this out, especially for the sake of their three young kids, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel!
Adding to the divorce speculation is the fact that the couple hasn’t been photographed together in over a month. Plus, on Jen’s birthday in April, Ben was alone in Canada…not wearing his wedding ring. Yikes!
Meanwhile, Ben will have a BUSY schedule coming up, with the premiere date of his highly-anticipated movie Batman vs. Superman nearing closer. The film doesn’t actually come out until March 25, 2016, but there’s going to be a ton of press in the lead-up. And it was also just confirmed that he’ll be appearing in Suicide Squad, due out in August 2016!
Okay, HollywoodLifers, tell us — do you think Ben and Jen are really headed for a split?!
