Jennifer Garner Takes Back Ben Affleck July 2016

(OK)

Jennifer Garner did not “take back” Ben Affleck, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the report.

The new issue of OK! hit newsstands on Wednesday exclaiming, “Jen Takes Ben Back!” Inside the magazine, a headline declares, “The Divorce Is Off!” It’s further said, “More than a year after announcing their split, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have decided to give their marriage another chance.”

According to the tabloid, the estranged spouses have “reconciled.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “They’re 100 percent back together. They’re acting like newlyweds again, and the kids are thrilled.” The publication goes on to allege, “What began as an attempt at friendly co-parenting turned into a full-blown reconciliation.”

“Not that Ben deserves sympathy, but he’s really been working his butt off, under a lot of public scrutiny no less, to prove to Jen that he’s worthy of another chance,” claims the tabloid’s supposed snitch. The outlet asserts that Garner recently gave Affleck an “ultimatum” after his controversial Ben Simmons interview, which “worked in a big way.” The alleged tipster says, “Ben actually dropped to his knees and said he’d do whatever it takes to keep the family together. It was a defining moment for them.”

What’s odd, though, is that there’s no mention of the baby. You know, the baby boy Garner was pregnant with that the tabloid reported she was carrying just a month ago. The magazine also alleged a pregnancy last September, and now more than nine months later, the publication has simply given birth to more lies.

There is no denying that Garner and Affleck are on more pleasant terms lately. But it is completely inaccurate to say Garner has taken Affleck “back” and there’s a “full-blown reconciliation.” As one source exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “It’s just stupid.” Another contact further tells us, “Jennifer did not take Ben back. They are 100 percent still separated and focused on co-parenting for the kids’ sake.” The end.
