MAG: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Have “Marriage Blowup”

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


“Ben & Jen’s MARRIAGE BLOWUP,” reads a headline from Star magazine, which claims Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner‘s marriage is “on the brink” after she discovered “he’s been secretly gambling and boozing.”

The mag reported last week that Affleck competed in high-stakes poker games with other Hollywood stars, and that Garner supposedly had “no idea” of her husband’s alleged secret life, and is now “reeling” from the revelations.

According to the tab, Garner’s also worried about Affleck’s sobriety. The actor went to rehab for alcohol in 2001, four years before they married.

“Jennifer is terrified that his history of gambling, drinking and womanizing is catching up with him,” says the mag.

Adds a so-called “source”: “If things get worse, Jen could be a single mom.”

Whoa… those are some pretty explosive claims.

Fortunately for the couple, absolutely NONE of this is true.

A rep for Affleck assures Gossip Cop the tab’s story is “false” and all “lies.”

Affleck and Garner are doing perfectly fine, and were recently photographed looking smitten at a Fourth of July parade in L.A.

Once again, Star gambles — and loses.
