Ben Affleck is allegedly encouraging his best friend Matt Damon to flirt with other women, according to one tabloid.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been close friends for years. However, one outlet claimed that Affleck had encouraged Damon to flirt with other women. The rumors started after the Martian star was spotted with a mystery woman at the beach in Malibu.
However, one should take the report with a grain of salt because there is not enough evidence to support it.
Ben Affleck allegedly encouraged Matt Damon to flirt
Woman’s Day published a report about Matt Damon throwing a football around the beach with a mystery woman. However, the outlet added a twist on its report alleging that he was flirting with the woman.
In addition, it claimed that Ben Affleck “encouraged” Damon to do it. The Justice League star allegedly told Damon that “it’s ok to look at the menu…just don’t place an order.”
The metaphor referred to women being objects of sexual desire for the Good Will Hunting stars.
Gossip Cop debunked the report for several reasons. First, it failed to mention that Matt Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, took a beach trip earlier this month. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas accompanied the couple.
There were hilarious pictures of Damon third-wheeling Affleck and de Armas while the couple was making out.
Also, there is no underlying drama between Damon and his spouse. The beach sighting was for Damon to have fun and wasn’t for a flirt fest as what the tabloid suggested.
Moreover, there is no drama between Affleck and Barroso for him to encourage Damon to be unfaithful to his wife. Affleck himself is happy with his girlfriend. The claim that he is encouraging Damon to flirt with other women doesn’t make sense.
Also, with Woman’s Day‘s reputation for publishing articles based on the statements of its undependable sources, this could be another groundless claim waiting to be debunked. So, avid followers of the couple should take these hearsays lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
