Ben Affleck and Kate Beckinsale are NOT “reuniting,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the claim. We’re told the allegation is utter nonsense.

Picking up a story from The Sun, Celeb Dirty Laundry says Affleck and Beckinsale “were rumored to have hooked up while making Pearl Harbor together, but their romance never evolved into anything permanent.” But now Beckinsale “has been leaning on her former lover” since her separation from Len Wiseman, and “some are wondering if the Underworld actress is trying to rekindle their old romance.”

“Beckinsale’s split from her director husband has sent the actress looking for comfort wherever she can find it. Right now, that may be with Affleck,” writes the webloid. The site even declares Beckinsale as “the one that got away,” saying “it’s pretty obvious that Ben still has feelings for his former flame that never cooled off despite his marriage to Jennifer Garner.”

Of course, the site doesn’t explain exactly how that’s “obvious,” but CDL adds, “Now that Kate is reaching out to Ben in the wake of her own divorce, the two Hollywood A-listers are realizing that the spark is still there.” To bolster its case, the webloid regurgitates a claim from The Sun that they’re being “urged” to “get back together” and “try to make their relationship work this time.”

But Gossip Cop knows what’s REALLY going on. Affleck is recently separated. Beckinsale is recently separated. So The Sun and Celeb Dirty Laundry decided to link then, much like OK! did last week with Affleck and the recently-separated Halle Berry. A source close to Affleck tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the reports are “crazy,” and should not be taken seriously.
