Ben Affleck is, allegedly, seething at Josh Duhamel because of the latter’s flirty relationship with Jennifer Garner.
Two years ago, National Enquirer claimed that Garner was using Duhamel to make Ben Affleck jealous. And the tactic, allegedly, worked.
While filming Love, Simon together, Garner allegedly went out of her way to flirt with Duhamel. And when Affleck found out about what they were doing, he was, allegedly, enraged.
Affleck also, allegedly, feels insanely jealous of Duhamel because he knows that the latter is much better looking than him.
Ben Affleck, Josh Duhamel feud
OK! magazine also claimed that Affleck and Duhamel got into a fight over Garner because they were both trying to win her heart. A source claimed that Affleck was trying to get back together with Garner, but Duhamel was also trying to make a play for the actress.
The rumors about Garner, Affleck, and Duhamel continued with one tabloid claiming that the Peppermint star was pregnant. And Garner didn’t, allegedly, know who her baby daddy was.
Josh Duhamel acted as a stepdad to Jennifer Garner’s kids
Weeks later, OK! magazine suggested that Duhamel won Garner’s heart because he, allegedly, played the role of stepdad to the actress’s three children.
Affleck was also allegedly furious at Duhamel for having a close relationship with his kids.
Back then, Gossip Cop already debunked the claims made by the tabloids. But the rumor-debunking site revisited the story to stress the fact that the claims are incorrect.
Ben Affleck and Duhamel never had a feud. And the A-listers didn’t also fight over Garner. After all, Garner and Duhamel were never interested in each other romantically.
Affleck didn’t also try to win back his ex-wife. Since their divorce, Affleck and Garner continued to co-parent their kids. However, they never expressed any desire to get back together.
Ben Affleck shares his biggest regret
Earlier this year, Affleck told The New York Times that his biggest regret in life is divorcing Garner. However, he’s not also one to keep blaming himself for what he’s done. This statement proves that Affleck has already moved on from his ex-wife.
“The biggest regret of my life is this divorce. Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame. It’s just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.. I have certainly done things that I regret. But you’ve got to pick yourself up, learn from it, learn some more, try to move forward,” he said.
Today, Ben Affleck is dating Ana de Armas.
