Are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck sleeping with each other again? Not quite, but they are reportedly sleeping next to each other. Could this mean they might be calling off their divorce? Get the details here!
Divorce seems to be awfully friendly for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner! The exes have remained cordial for their kids, but a new report claims that they’re taking amicable behavior to the next level — by continuing to sleep next to each other. Even if Jen, 43, and Ben, 43, don’t have the intention of getting back together, sleeping that close to each other certainly makes it seem like they could be working on rekindling their marriage!
“Ben stays in the room next to Jen’s. This is their new normal,” an insider told Us Weekly. “They’ve figured out how to be friends.”
Whoa! While Ben and Jennifer aren’t sleeping in the same bed, it’s still a little peculiar that they would choose to sleep in adjoining rooms. After all, their $45 million Pacific Palisades, Calif., mansion has five bedrooms to choose from!
The source didn’t elaborate on why Ben still sleeps in the house — or why he and Jen chose the rooms next to each other — but this isn’t the first report that has indicated they could be getting back together. Just before the Oscars, Jennifer and Ben were supposedly spotted on an intimate night out with their kids, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4, looking very much in love. A source even told OK! magazine that Jen is ready to take Ben back!
Plus, although it seemed that Ben caused the divorce by sleeping with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian, Jen revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that they were “separated for months” before she heard about any of that. She even took part of the blame for their split! After hearing her admit both of those things, it doesn’t seem so far fetched that they would rekindle their marriage…especially sleeping right next to each other!
Even though they do live under the same roof and sleep so close to each other, though, Jennifer and Ben didn’t end up attending the Oscars together. In fact, they had somewhat of an awkward encounter at the Vanity Fair after-party that an eyewitness called “frosty.” But despite their not-so-great run-in, Jennifer gushed to the mag about Ben, calling him the love of her life. They’re certainly sending some mixed signals, but the signs are seemingly pointing more toward getting back together!
Do you think Jennifer and Ben are on their way to calling their divorce off, HollywoodLifers? Do you hope they get back together? Tell us below!
