Ever since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce, fans have been hoping for a reconciliation. Now, with Affleck’s recent sighting with a new girlfriend, any hope for a reunion is apparently off the table.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, fans had good reason to believe that Affleck and Garner would eventually work out their differences.
For starters, the two still haven’t finalized their divorce. The divorce process can sometimes take years to complete, but with the two still spending a lot of time together, it appeared like they were holding back intentionally.
Unfortunately, Affleck’s recent public sighting with a new girlfriend shatters any and all hope of a future reconciliation.
An Uber driver in Miami claims that he drove Affleck and a mystery blonde from a hotel to Miami’s airport. According to Mercury News, the driver is certain that Affleck was his passenger and revealed that the actor and the woman were arguing.
To make matters worse, the hotel has since revealed that Affleck did not stay under his name. Instead, an inside source explained that the Batman v Superman star used an alias.
“It was under a different name and very on the down low,” the source shared.
At this point, it isn’t clear if Affleck and the mystery woman actually hooked up or not. Of course, it hasn’t even been confirmed that Affleck, who is currently filming Justice League in London, really was in Miami at the time of the incident.
Whatever the truth, this is allegedly not the first time Affleck has snuck around behind Garner’s back. When the two first announced their divorce, speculation surfaced that Affleck had cheated with their children’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian.
Later, Garner revealed that the cheating rumors were true, though the incident occurred after the two had decided to split.
If Affleck really has found a new girlfriend, then it is unlikely that he will ever get back with Garner.
That being said, Radar Online is reporting that Affleck recently bought his estranged wife an 11-carat diamond. The jewel was supposed to commemorate their 11th anniversary.
“Not-so-subtly popping his ‘new vows’ question, Ben presented Jen with a whopping 11-carat diamond — one carat for each year since their marriage,” a source told the outlet.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner called in quits right after their 10th anniversary last year. The diamond gift, however, was an attempt to get Garner back and celebrate another year together.
“Not wanting to scare Jen off with an actual ring, Ben had the huge stone set into a gorgeous platinum necklace and told her to consider it ‘a promise trinket’ for his heartfelt intentions,” the insider continued.
Although he had the diamond set into a necklace, the source added that Affleck hopes Garner changes her mind and wants to get the diamond placed “into a new wedding ring.”
Despite the diamond reports, Gossip Cop has since revealed that Affleck did not purchase a massive diamond for Garner. Instead, a source told the outlet that the reports of an anniversary gift were completely “false.”
With so many conflicting reports, it is unclear what is happening behind the scenes between Affleck and Garner.
At this time, it is known that Garner and Affleck are currently in London while his newest film wraps. Whether or not the couple is headed for a reunion is yet to be seen.
If Affleck has found a new girlfriend, then the chances of him getting back with Garner are very slim. Until more information is revealed, fans will likely continue to hold out hope that the two can eventually work things out.
