Ben Affleck has not moved back into the home he and Jennifer Garner shared in Los Angeles, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s off-base.

According to Star, amid rumors of a “reconciliation,” Affleck and Garner have “not only moved on from his babysitter fiasco, but the Batman v. Superman star is again living at the Pacific Palisades mansion he once shared with his wife.” A so-called “pal” tells the clueless tabloid, “Ben has made it very clear to Jen that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her back.” The ill-informed publication then notes Affleck is now “sleeping in the guesthouse.” “It’s a step in the right direction,” adds the magazine’s misguided source.

Gossip Cop wonders if the publication based its current erroneous report on information from the same untrustworthy “source” the tabloid used for a cover story that wrongly claimed Affleck was getting back together with Garner in October 2015. A year has passed and seemingly Star hasn’t gotten any more accurate with its articles about the separated spouses. Gossip Cop will skip to the chase: Affleck is not moving back into the Pacific Palisades home they shared, because “he never moved out,” a mutual friend of ours and the actor tells Gossip Cop. He’s lived in the guest house ever since the couple separated in June 2015.

Nothing has changed. Affleck and Garner remain on friendly terms and co-parent their three children. They have not reconciled nor have they called off their divorce.
