Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s marriage is not “back on,” despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct this inaccurate claim. We’re told it’s “not factual.”

According to Life & Style, after spending Valentine’s Day together in Big Sky, Montana, Garner and Affleck “have secretly decided to give their marriage another try.” The woefully wrong tabloid quotes an ill-informed source saying, “Jen says she’s willing to give their marriage another shot and see what happens.” Among the “steps toward rebuilding their romance” that the two allegedly have taken, says the publication’s supposed “source,” is that Affleck and Garner are “sharing a room again” and are openly “touchy-feely.”

The magazine’s unreliable source further alleges that during couples therapy, “They realized the connection they shared was still strong, and they managed to fall in love all over again.” “They’ve talked about renewing their vows at home on their 11th wedding anniversary in June,” adds the outlet’s so-called “source.” And to regain Garner’s trust, claims the phony “source,” Affleck has given his estranged wife “all his phone and computer passwords.”

And while Garner called Affleck “the love of my life” in the March issue of Vanity Fair, the actress also made perfectly clear that the two were not reconciling. But since that interview was conducted months ago, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation to double check, and we’ve been assured Life & Style’s claim that Affleck and Garner’s marriage is “back on” is “not factual.”

It should come as no surprise that the tabloid is 100 percent wrong. Gossip Cop corrected the magazine when it falsely reported Affleck and Garner were reconciling in October and then again in November. We also busted the publication when it absurdly claimed the estranged couple was having another baby to “save their marriage.” Those tall tale were untrue, and so is the outlet’s latest story.
