Rumors that Jennifer Garner is dating a new man are being addressed after a tabloid claimed the actress is seeing her accountant.
Jennifer and her estranged husband, Ben Affleck, have been the subject of countless rumors since they announced their split last summer. In spite of their troubles, they live in the same house and frequently travel together with their three children.
In Touch wrote in its newest issue that Jennifer Garner is dating a “new man” — her accountant.
The magazine printed that “Jen was photographed laughing and smiling at Soho House’s Little Beach House Malibu with another man: her handsome accountant.”
A source was quoted as telling the publication that Jennifer and her accountant “went out for brunch when she came back to Southern California from London,” after vacationing with her kids while Ben filmed Justice League.
The magazine goes on to write that “Jen’s finance guy is single,” and Affleck is jealous. A source says “Ben’s always been jealous of him, and Jen knows that.” The questionable insider adds that “if it makes Ben jealous, Jen thinks that’s his problem.”
Gossip Cop reports that it can “exclusively debunk the story” that Garner is dating her accountant.
GP informs readers that the man in question is not single, and that there’s nothing going on between he and the actress. Add to that, he’s not even Garner’s accountant!
The accountant is actually married to Garner’s longtime manager, who was with them on the photographed outing used by In Touch. The tabloid chose to leave out the fact that the manager was right there.
In Touch also recently claimed that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck planned to renew their vows, but that story was also outed as untrue.

Other outlets ran with the story that Garner’s “new man” is her accountant. Star has a tendency to print several unreliable stories that are frequently squashed by Gossip Cop as well. The tabloid wrote that Jen was “batting her eyelashes” and flirting away with her accountant in the same setting that In Touch used for its inaccurate storytelling. The Hollywood Gossip reprinted portions of the report on its site. A “witness” said Garner was “acting more like a googly-eyed teen” than a “mother of three.”
Ben and Jennifer have been a united couple for the sake of their children. Although they separated last year after reports that Ben was cheating on his wife with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian, the two have handled the break-up well publicly. Other than serving as good tabloid fodder, the movie stars seem solid in their mature relationship.
Back in March, Ben was in the headlines over rumors that he was secretly involved with Charlize Theron. An OK! report via Hollywood Life reported that the two have “had the hots for each other” for years.
Both Affleck and Theron attended the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in February, and it gave the magazine a chance to brew up another lie, as GP busted once more. A supposed source told OK! that Affleck and Theron had an “insane connection” that was “sparked all those years ago.” The insider said they finally felt they could “flirt freely,” even though Jennifer Garner was also in attendance at the event.
As GP revealed, the magazine borrowed a photo showing Affleck and Theron leaving the Oscars party event at the same time. They weren’t walking near each other and had other people surrounding them.
In spite of rumors that Jennifer Garner is dating a new man and Ben Affleck is secretly romancing another actress, all of them have been corrected as fabricated stories or false claims.
