Ben Affleck is NOT trying to “win back” Jennifer Garner, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. There’s no truth to it.

The story in question can be found in this week’s In Touch, which alleges Affleck has an “ulterior motive” for having Garner and their kids come stay in London while he films Justice League this summer. “He’s plotting to win back his wife,” claims the magazine, which quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Ben is hoping his summer movie shoot in London will give him the opportunity to convince Jen to give their marriage another chance.”

“Jen has told Ben flat-out that there is no chance she will take him back, but he just refuses to take no for an answer,” continues the supposed source. The outlet adds that Affleck is “confident he can win her back,” even though for Garner, “it’s too little, too late.” And that, of course, is the tabloid’s ready-made excuse for when the reconciliation doesn’t actually happen.

Remember, this is coming from In Touch, the same publication that almost exactly a month ago claimed that Garner and Affleck’s divorce had turned “nasty.” And before that, sister publication Life & Style alleged the estranged spouses were “trying for baby No. 4.” Both outlets are just making it up as they go along, all in an effort to drag out the saga and make it as sensational as possible.

Still, Gossip Cop checked in once again with an actual source close to the situation, and we were exclusively assured Affleck is not attempting to win Garner back over her objections. The two remain on friendly terms and are spending time together as co-parents, but that’s it.
