“Jen’s Secret Heartache,” reads the headline of a new story from Star that claims Jennifer Garner has been “quietly suffering” because of Ben Affleck’s “jealousy.”

The mag says that even though the couple recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary, he is still “incredibly insecure.” A so-called “insider” for the tabloid notes, “When Jen’s on a movie set, he’s constantly calling and texting her. He goes into fits if he hears she’s getting too close with another guy.”

Let’s stop and look at Star’s record with Affleck. The magazine wrongly claimed almost three years that he and Garner had a “marriage blowup,” and then again two months ago that they couple had a “marriage crisis.” And yet they are still together. Still, Gossip Cop check in with an Affleck pal, and we’re told this latest “jealousy” tale is similarly untrue.
