Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been overwhelmed by rumors of a split for the past few weeks. Some gossip sites claimed the two have finally hit their roughest patch in their marriage life and hoping to finalize their divorce before their 10th wedding anniversary.
Last week, several celebrity-tracking and gossip sites reported that the American actor & filmmaker Ben Affleck and the American actress & film producer Jennifer Garner are breaking up.
According to Radar Online, “the couple is leading separate lives. Garner, 43, is spending time in Montreal filming her new movie “Nine Lives,” while Affleck, 42, made gambling trips to Vegas on May 3 and May 14. She was also spotted solo in Canada on her birthday back in April.”
Garner has taken the couple’s three children with her to Canada. The site blames the imminent split on Ben’s gambling and dodging of his duties as husband and dad. He has been also spotted without his wedding ring.
“Ben and his team have definitely been engaging divorce attorneys” and “he’s positioning for a divorce,” reported Radar.
Market Watch told, “Sad news for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner fans but it appears that the celebrity power couple is headed for a $150 million divorce — and hoping to have it finalized before their 10th wedding anniversary.”
However, according to VH1 The Gossip Table, “this is simply a rough patch typical of any marriage. The two displayed their united front, holding hands in their Brentwood neighborhood and taking the kids out for ice cream — with photographers in tow.”
The source also added, “there are some moments of concern: When split rumors swirled around the original Ben and Jen (Affleck and Jennifer Lopez) they were photographed looking like a happy couple as well. And we all know how that ended.” Ben and Lopez broke up in January 2004, after being engaged in November 2002 and eighteen months of relationship from 2002 to 2004.
Are Ben and Garner headed for a split? Is the couple’s united photographs a real sign of them being OK or is it just for a photo? Are the reports just based on rumors? – Let us wait until after the 10th wedding anniversary of Bennifer II.
