In news that made us spit out our tea and faceplant our porridge, it’s being claimed that the flawless couple that is Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have ‘secretly separated’ and are ‘heading for a divorce’.
Okay, so we know it’s throwback Thursday and all, but we don’t really need to throw it back to a time when Bennifer 2 WEREN’T a couple, do we?
The answer is a) NO.
In news that’s making us ugly cry and lose all belief in love, the 43-year-old actress has apparently reached breaking point, with her marriage to the 42-year-old actor on the rocks.
According to reports in the national Enquirer, the couple, who have been married since 2005, could be heading for a $150million divorce, with OK! Magazine US alleging that the pair are currently living alone after their marriage hit problems.
An insider for OK! claims they’ve already separated, explaining: “Ben wants the official statement to come out a few weeks before their 10th anniversary — which he hopes will give enough time for the news to die down by the time he has to promote Batman v Superman and the other movies he has coming out next year.”
This is just as bad as the time Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were reported to have split. OUR HEARTS CAN’T TAKE THIS.
It’s thought that the couple haven’t been seen together for over a month, with an insider for Radar Online revealing: “Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart.
“Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids.”
Another insider for the site added that Jennifer “has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time.
“She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She’ll take custody of them.”
The couple have three children together – Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.
Ben was also allegedly seen without his Wedding ring during a solo trip to Nova Scotia on Jennifer’s birthday.
We SERIOUSLY hope these rumours aren’t true.
