Jennifer Garner is NOT feuding with Ben Affleck‘s mom over their divorce, despite a new webloid report. Gossip Cop can bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Affleck’s mother, Christine Boldt, is “begging” Garner not to “pull the plug on their marriage” because she is reportedly afraid her son might relapse, or worse, make some seriously bad decisions that might permanently damage his career. The repeatedly discredited website then references another unreliable outlet’s article about Affleck’s mom, claiming she asked Garner to “halt the divorce proceedings” for the sake of her son, who supposedly needs the stability that comes with having a family and taking care of three children.

The webloid further claims that without Garner and the kids, Boldt is worried her son will go back to his “old habits” by drinking and smoking away his health. What’s more, Boldt allegedly feels she’s got “no other choice” but to intervene in the divorce proceedings and stop Garner from inevitably playing the “single mother victim card” that could destroy Affleck’s reputation. But aside from picking and choosing quotes from another webloid’s article, the site doesn’t have a single source to back up its claim. In fact, just last week Gossip Cop debunked a similar story written by In Touch that also wrongly reported Affleck’s mom was begging Garner to call off their divorce.

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Affleck, who assured us Boldt is not playing any part in the divorce proceedings, and nothing has changed since. Of course, we’re not surprised by CDL’s bogus article. Gossip Cop recently busted the webloid for falsely alleging Affleck was having a meltdown. Much like those inaccurate claims, this latest one about Garner feuding with Affleck’s mom over their divorce is equally untrue.
