The infamous Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorce could be just a rumor. The couple was spotted walking together again in their Brentwood neighborhood on Thursday.
The speculation was only fueled recently as Affleck was found consulting an attorney, as previously reported by the Inquisitr. Sources claim that Garner has been planning to divorce her Daredevil co-star for months.
The two are rarely seen together anymore, but this could be the result of the couple’s conflicting film schedules. Affleck has been filming his first superhero role since the critically slammed Daredevil, and is even reportedly planning to appear in Suicide Squad, reprising his titular role in Batman V Superman.
Warner Bros. seems to have a lot riding on Batfleck being the hero of Gotham City, accepting the proverbial torch from Christian Bale. It isn’t a follow-up, as every character is being recast, as well.
Garner has been busy as well, traveling back and forth to Montreal to film the comedy Nine Lives. It seems unlikely that either would have time for any public display of affection, as busy as they are separately.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce could easily be an additional burden on them both, dividing their time between their careers and attorneys, if it turns out to be true.
Bennifer was seen together last week for the first time in months, though it may just be keeping up appearances. Later that day, they were spotted again getting frozen yogurt at Menchie’s in Santa Monica, according to the Los Angeles Times. The report adds that they had two of their children in tow, though 3-year-old Sam was not in attendance.

While the rumors have yet to be confirmed, their latest appearances together seem to counter the idea of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce. If the pending divorce is just a rumor, then what are they consulting attorneys for?
The divorce rumors could be put to rest if Bennifer is spotted together on their upcoming 10-year anniversary. Affleck has already been spotted gambling alone in Las Vegas, Garner likewise lunching in Manhattan at the same time. The couple spent Mother’s Day and her birthday apart as well.
Until confirmations are given, nobody except Bennifer (and probably their separate attorneys) knows what’s really going on between them.
