Uh-oh! After an influx of on-the-rocks rumors about the romance between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, it looks like there just might actually be trouble in paradise. The couple now spend nights living apart — reportedly.
With their 10 year wedding anniversary less than two weeks away, you’d think Ben Affleck, 42, and Jennifer Garner, 43, would be more in love than ever. Well, that unfortunately doesn’t seem to be the case. In an alleged last ditch effort to save their failing marriage, the couple have sought help from a marriage counselor — and when they fight, Ben stays overnight at LA’s famed Hotel Bel-Air, according to a new report!
While whisperings of a marriage crisis have plagued the pair for years, it seems as if the latest talk of turmoil might actually have some validity. “[Ben and Jen] have had problems from the very beginning,” a source tells the June 29 issue of Us Weekly.
The main issues? Ben’s “workaholic” nature and “many vices.” And when their heated arguments become too much to bear, the Batman Vs. Superman hunk seeks solo solace at Hotel Bel-Air in LA. The complete opposite of #RelationshipGoals! “He stays there whenever he and Jen are having problems,” said the insider, who also revealed that Ben will order cocktails at the bar. “There’s no need to sugarcoat it. Ben is drinking again.”
The mag’s insiders believe the only reason the actors have been able to stick it out as long as they have is because of their three children: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. While their kids currently act as the only glue between Ben and Jen, the report still claims that “things are not all peaches and cream with them.” So sad, right?!
Over a week ago, other outlets like Star and OK! also reported that the once happy parents’ marriage was in shambles. In an attempt to put the rampant rumors to rest, Ben and Jen stepped out for a family outing on June 7 — with paparazzi to capture every moment.
Hanging out at a Farmer’s Market in California’s Pacific Palisades, the movie stars treated their youngest kids Seraphina and Sam to balloons, frozen treats and more during their day of family fun.
While Ben and Jen may have wanted to silence those attacking their decade long union, their appearance didn’t do much to dispel the rumors about their struggling relationship. Yep, there was no sign of a smile on either of their faces and absolutely zero PDA between the two. Yikes!
