Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are allegedly closer to each other after their divorce, according to an outlet.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have remained amicable after they split as they co-parent their three children — Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9. However, one outlet alleged that the exes are closer and hinted that they might get back together.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck romantic rumor
In Touch published a story with the headline about Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s alleged reunion. It even asked the readers if divorce makes the heart grow fonder because it seemed to be the case for the exes. Garner and Affleck finalized their divorce in October 2018.
It quoted an insider claiming that Affleck and Garner don’t just meet up for their children. They have been hanging out, just the two of them, and the Yes Day actress felt that she could trust her ex-husband again because he is already sober, the insider said.
“It’s like the wonderful guy that Jen married is back,” the anonymous source added.
The outlet noted Affleck’s ongoing battle with sobriety and how Garner has been supportive of him. The magazine speculated that due to their close ties, it’s likely that they will rekindle their romance.
“I think it’s only a matter of time before they officially get back together,” the source said.
Romantic rumors debunked
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are both single at the same time. There is no doubt that their fans want them together. However, Gossip Cop noted that being successful at co-parenting doesn’t equate to the exes wanting to get married again.
The rumor-debunking site noted that Ben and Jen’s romantic relationship already ended. Seeing them together doesn’t mean that they are giving their love a second chance. In fact, they have been doing the same thing for years — putting a united front for their kids.
The couple has made it known that their priority is their children. In fact, when they split, they said they still wanted to spend the holidays together and as a family.
The rumor debunking site also noted In Touch’s spotty reports about the couple in the past. For instance, it claimed in another report that the Batman v Superman star was going through a midlife crisis which was not true.
It also alleged that Jennifer Garner had banned Ben Affleck from seeing their kids when he dated Ana de Armas. The report was not true. In fact, other reputable sources claimed that Affleck and de Armas were spotted bonding with his kids.
