Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner NOT Calling Off Divorce Over Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Despite Report
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are NOT calling off their divorce following Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s contentious split, despite a bogus webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Affleck and Garner don’t want to follow in the footsteps of Pitt and Jolie, whose messy divorce involves a custody battle and allegations of unfit parenting. Without a single source to backup its baseless claim, the webloid writes, “After witnessing all the mud-slinging between Brad and Angelina in the media, Ben and Jennifer have realized that they don’t want to stoop so low that they would end up destroying not only each other’s Hollywood careers, but their family and children’s lives as well.”
The webloid goes on to make the ridiculous assertion that Affleck and Garner’s fans “are more invested in their personal careers than their on-screen work,” and so the estranged spouses are willing to repair their marriage solely to save their movie careers. The repeatedly refuted website concludes that Affleck and Garner will go as far as “faking their happiness” to avoid the same negative scrutiny that surrounds Pitt and Jolie.
Despite the webloid having zero sources to back up its purely speculative claim, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to Garner, who exclusively assures us there’s “no truth” to the site’s story. The actress and her estranged husband have a completely different set of circumstances surrounding their split, and the comparison to Pitt and Jolie is completely baseless. Regardless, we’re told the pair aren’t reconciling.
In fact, Gossip Cop called out CDL earlier this year for wrongly reporting Affleck and Garner’s divorce was off. The claim wasn’t true then, and it isn’t any more accurate now.
