Jennifer Garner And Ben Affleck Splitting, Getting Divorced?
Are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck splitting? While Gossip Cop has accurately debunked such tabloid stories in years past, renewed rumors of a divorce are reaching a fever-pitch, and neither star’s camp is talking.
Garner and Affleck wed in 2005, and will hit the 10-year anniversary milestone on June 29. They have three kids together: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. The relationship has been dogged by tabloid breakup reports for years and years. Gossip Cop has correctly busted countless of them, going back to 2010.
For the last few years, a new divorce claim has seemingly surfaced every few months. Each story typically regurgitates the same unfounded details of marital problems, and throws a large dollar figure in, blaring things like “$150 Million Divorce!” One tabloid, Star, stooped especially low just last week, with a cover alleging to have “divorce papers,” when, as Gossip Cop pointed out, inside the magazine it was revealed the documents were actually from Garner’s prior marriage to Scott Foley.
Insiders close to Garner and Affleck have proven to be reliable sources again and again. But over the last few weeks, Gossip Cop repeatedly inquired about the new rash of split claims, and we’ve received no response. Our insiders’ silence shouldn’t be a tacit acknowledgment that they are divorcing, but it is curious that suddenly they’re not talking after previously denying such reports as recently as early May. Gossip Cop is continuing to monitor the situation, and reached out to reps again on Wednesday. We’ll have updates.
