This has probably been one of the most unfortunate splits in Hollywood. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were the perfect couple and with the three wonderful children they have, their family was complete. Happy in their little world managing professional commitments and more importantly their children, everyone was taken aback when the couple announced their separation a day after completing 10 years of marriage. What followed was speculations about why would the separation happen, who is responsible and who will take the custody of the children? But something in their life that caught everyone’s attention was their residence arrangement post split. A couple of moving trucks were seen at their home and reports suggested that Ben will be arranging for a separate accommodation somewhere near his marital home. A recent update expands on the same.
According to Radar Online, Ben Affleck will be moving into a new home which is quite close to his own property and with that he will be able to co-parent his children with soon to be ex-wife Jennifer Garner. Contrary to beliefs that Ben Affleck was going to stay in an annexe that was being built in his own property so that he could stay close to his children turns out to be untrue. If reports are to believed then the actor will be renting out Brooke Shields home which happens to be in the vicinity and solves his current problem. This said home is a five bedroom and bathroom house and since Brooke along with her husband spends most of her time in New York, her place helps her make $30,000 a month in rent alone.
This option does look like something that can be useful to the couple because Ben needed a somewhat permanent solution to his residential issues. With the home being just a few blocks away, he can come over to his property, spend some time with his children and the little puppy the couple just adopted. In the official statement that the couple released, they assured everyone that they are committed 100% to their children and are going forward with nothing but love and respect for each other.
