Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their divorce last June 15 2015, a day after their tenth anniversary, since then, the “Finding Your Roots” actor’s mother reportedly wants his son back to her. Read on!
Former A-list couple, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are still continuing to put on a united front for the sake of Violet, Samuel and Seraphina. However, though the both celebrities try their best settle their messy marriage, Affleck’s mother is said to be so eager to get his son back and keep him close to her.
According to Xpose.ie, Christine, Affleck’s mother, is currently in “full control of everything right now” as the actor starts to picks up the pieces from his failed marriage.
The source from Britain’s Grazia magazine added that “Chris’ boys, Casey and Ben, have always been the apple of her eye, ever since her husband left her. Ben’s always been close to his mum, but he seems to have taken it to a whole new level since the split.”
Moreover, the gossip site stated that the 43-year-old “Gone Girl” actor is spending a lot of his time with his mom in Boston while searching for locations for his new film, “Live By Night.” The said film will be directed by Affleck, where he will also star in for more than a few months. His mother wants to make sure that he will keep a healthy lifestyle during the filming.
The source then added that Christine convinced Affleck to stay in her house so she could help him take care of himself since the actor is clearly in a “pretty bad way” at the moment.
“He’s not really taking care of himself, he’s not shaving, hardly washing and eating a lot of junk food and his mum can’t bear to see him like this. Now she’s really pushing for him to move in full-time once he starts filming.” the source told Xpose.
Garner, on the other hand, is currently staying at their family home in Los Angeles with their three children.
Garner and Affleck are currently in a reconciliation process, according to Belfast Telegraph but not to the point where they will back out from their first decision—to have a divorce.
The pair is totally hands on when it comes to their children and are both looking happy and relaxed based on their recent photos. However, sources close to the former couple insist that Affleck and Garner’s relationship is more like two people trying to look normal in front of their kids and there’s definitely no “getting back together” moment for them.
