Jennifer Garner is not "getting cozy" with a bodyguard who looks like Ben Affleck, despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the false story. We're told it's "absurd."

The National Enquirer announces in its new issue that Garner's "found a new Ben," referring to her bodyguard, whom the supermarket tabloid contends is an "Affleck double." And not only is this "hunk for hire" supposedly a "spitting image" of the actor, the gossip magazine also maintains he and Garner have now started a "romance." A so-called "insider" is quoted as telling the outlet that the actress feels she "deserves" some "eye candy" after her woes with Affleck.

"Now she can get the ultimate revenge by being seen on the arm of her hot bodyguard," alleges the publication's supposed source, who says the pair "hang out even when he's off the clock." The magazine's purported tipster adds that Garner "hasn't felt this light in years, since her problems with Ben began!" Curiously, though, the tabloid doesn't seem to know the guy's name, yet insists he and Garner are "getting cozy."

That's not the only red flag that this article is a fake news story. The piece also says Garner has "grown close" to the security guard after the National Enquirer reported Affleck "crawled back to the nanny he previously had an affair with." But Gossip Cop exposed the publication last week for falsely claiming Affleck was texting with Christine Ouzounian, who was supposedly trying to "win Ben back."

Our rock-solid Affleck source assured Gossip Cop at the time there was "no truth" to that story, and now one of our impeccable Garner contacts similarly tells us it's "absurd," and there's no merit to this new one about the bodyguard, who, by the way, barely has a passing resemblance to the Oscar-winning actor. It seems the tabloid just invented another twist to its fictional Garner-Affleck saga. The outlet has seemingly manufactured many untrue angles in the past.

Last fall, for instance, Gossip Cop busted the gossip magazine for untruthfully claiming Garner was pregnant with their fourth child. That was months after a prior article wrongly alleged Garner was pregnant and trapped Affleck into staying married. Of course, she was never expecting either time, just as Gossip Cop rightly said. Now Garner and Affleck have filed for divorce, further proving we were correct when reporting the estranged spouses were not reconciling. Time will prove us accurate when it comes to Garner and this bodyguard, too.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
