Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner Separation Rumors Emerge, $150 Million Divorce Battle Looms

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are allegedly heading for a $150 million divorce, according to reports from numerous tabloids.

OK! Magazine have reported that Garner and Affleck’s 9-year marriage has recently been beset by issues, before the website added that the acting duo are now living alone.

They were joined by Radar Online, who reported that both Garner and Affleck have now been living apart for several weeks. They added that at the same time that Affleck was spotted in Las Vegas enjoying some gambling earlier this month, Garner was seen in New York City having lunch with a friend.

Meanwhile, to add further intrigue to the report, neither Affleck nor Garner were looking after their three children, 9-year-old Violet, 6-year-old Seraphina, and 3-year-old Sam at the time, too, as they were in Los Angeles.

However, Affleck’s jaunt to Las Vegas was only short. Because just a few hours after he had been spotted playing cards, he was photographed taking his children to school in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, this report comes just a few weeks after Ben Affleck was nowhere to be seen on Jennifer Garner’s birthday. In fact, as the Inquisitr reported at the time, a video of Ben not wearing his wedding ring at a gas station in Canada the day before his wife’s birthday also emerged, which helped to ignite rumors of the demise of their relationship.

During an interview with Yahoo Parenting just a week ago, Jennifer Garner admitted that a huge amount of patience is required when you’re trying to combine being a parent with your marriage.

“You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be,” she explained. “You have to just hang in there while you figure it out — and have a lot of patience for each other.”

According to the Daily Mail, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were last photographed together while they were out walking in their Brentwood, California, neighborhood. Affleck has also been in Toronto filming sequences for the upcoming blockbuster Suicide Squad, where he will reprise his Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice character, Batman.

Just a few days ago, Jennifer Garner was photographed in Montreal, where local reports, via Radar Online, have insisted that she’s been there since April 29.
