CLAIM: Affleck and Garner Marriage is “Hanging By a Thread”

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner‘s marriage is “hanging by a thread,” according to the always reliable (cough) National Enquirer.

The tabloid claims the couple is leading “increasingly separate lives” due to their busy schedules and “seem to have been drifting apart for months.”

“Jen is ready to give Ben a shape-up or ship-out ultimatum” to “make her and the kids his main priority,” says the mag’s “insider.”

What does the Enquirer have in the way of evidence to show how far apart the couple has drifted? How about a photograph of Affleck checking his BlackBerry while he and Garner attended daughter Violet‘s soccer game.

Yes, The Town director incredibly checked his e-mail — no wonder the Enquirer screams that the marriage is “falling apart.”

A so-called “source” for the tabloid calls the situation “tragic.”

Gossip Cop thinks what’s more “tragic” is the Enquirer desperately trying to poke holes in a perfectly stable relationship by equating Garner and Affleck’s busy lives with some kind of marriage meltdown.

A source close to the couple calls the Enquirer‘s story a “joke” and tells Gossip Cop that Garner and Affleck are “happy as can be” and spend “as much time together as they can.”
