Noooooooo! Say it ain’t so, Bennifer! After 10 years of marriage, three gorgeous children, months of speculation, his vices, her patience and this damning blind item, it seems Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner really were in trouble and are officially splitting. NOOOOOOO!
TMZ reports —and People confirms— the news comes a day after their anniversary (sincere sad face). Sources say they won’t file immediately as they have property and custody issues to resolve first but it looks to be one of those amicable deals that all Hollywood couples inevitably start with.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement. “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
Garner seems like the perfect wife and mother and perhaps Affleck’s gambling and alleged cheating was too much for even her to take, no matter how bad she wants to for the kids. Either way, this is a sad day for Bennifer 2.0 — and those of us who wanted them to work.
