Ben Affleck is not at “war” with nor does he pester Jennifer Garner about dating, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim, which was published in one of this week’s tabloids. We’re told the whole premise is “ridiculous.”

According to In Touch, Affleck is “standing in the way” of Garner dating. The tabloid quotes one of its ill-informed sources as saying, “He’s been demanding and jealous, constantly asking her who she’s spending time with.” “He hates that he has no control over her anymore,” adds the magazine’s so-called “insider.”

The tabloid then notes how Garner has been “linked to Patrick Dempsey” and others before quoting its supposed “source” alleging how Affleck “thinks it’s disrespectful” she’s dating, and is “constantly badgering Jen for details about her mystery suitors.” It should be noted, however, as Gossip Cop exclusively reported, Garner and Dempsey are 100 percent not romantically involved. Nor is Garner dating anyone right now.

Of course, In Touch seems not care about the facts getting in the way of writing a story that uses Garner and Affleck’s names along with the word “war.” Remember, this is the same tabloid that four months ago reported, Affleck and Garner were “expecting baby No. 4,” and were going to use pregnancy as a reason to “work through their problems.” Curiously, the tabloid makes no mention of Garner’s supposed pregnancy in its latest story.

In any event, Gossip Cop actually fact-checks stories to deliver accurate celebrity news stories, and the magazine’s current claim about Affleck and Garner being at “war” over her supposedly dating does not fall within that category. A provenly reliable source close to Garner exclusively assures Gossip Cop the tabloid’s tale is “ridiculous.”
