Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck continue to draw media attention due to their current situation as a separated-not-yet-divorced couple. The estranged stars announced their intent to divorce back in June of 2015 after nearly 10 years of marriage, but have continued on residing on the same property and raising their three children quite jointly, which has raised speculation as to when or even if the two are actually planning to go through with a divorce.

Back in early 2016, fans of the former couple were hopeful when the pair took their children on a European getaway and seemed quite affectionate and comfortable in one another’s company. There were rumors the two were reuniting. Since then, even more rumors have brewed that Garner is carrying the former couple’s fourth child. Jen hilariously had no words to the subject when faced with it by a photographer a couple of months back. The rumor is clearly untrue.
At this point, however, Garner and Ben seem to be full steam ahead with their intention to divorce. Jen has never looked better, ensuring to make her multiple trips to the gym, weekly. The Daily Mail noted the fit form Garner had as she headed to the gym on Friday.
“Jennifer Garner looked healthy and fit as she stepped out for a workout Friday in athletic wear, showing off her skinny legs, Last month, rumors surfaced that Garner was pregnant with her fourth child with Ben Affleck after the mother of three was spotted wearing loose-fitting clothes. On Friday, the 44-year-old hit the gym and then stopped by a coffee house in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. She wore tight black leggings, a quilted black zip-up jacket over a grey T-shirt and bright turquoise-blue trainers. Later, Garner paused to chat with a male friend on the sidewalk.”
New claims are circulating that Ben is ready to move on and find love again. There was talk that the actor had begun chatting with his ex from years ago, superstar Jennifer Lopez. Lopez has recently parted ways with her boyfriend of five years, Casper Smart, and was said to be texting Affleck, which may have annoyed Garner. This, once again, was pure fabrication.

Gossip Cop debunked the rumors that Ben and Jennifer Lopez were planning to rekindle their former romance, which almost saw them tie the knot. Life & Style is the tabloid to blame for spurring on this outrageous rumor after sharing words of an apparent source.
“With J. Lo suddenly single and Jennifer Garner preparing to officially file for divorce from Ben, the former couple have been busy reconnecting. They’ve been talking on the phone for hours at a time. Their relationship was always intense and had a lot of passion. It’s like they are back together already.”
The source went on to claim that after splitting from Casper, Lopez reached out to Affleck and was the one who made the first move in an attempt to get him back. Affleck was then said to have been “open to reuniting, too.”
As indicated, Gossip Cop has entirely slammed this rumor by getting to the root of the fabrication and contacting reps for the stars who state that it is all a giant falsehood used as a means to capitalize on the breakup between JLo and Casper and bridge the high-profile separation of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. As for whether either Garner or Affleck are ready to actually move forward in new relationships, this remains to be made known in a factual and legitimate manner by a reliable source. As it stands, the pair is content raising their children and remaining amicable as they head towards divorce.
