Ben Affleck Secretly Dating Taylor Swift Ahead of Jennifer Garner Divorce?

Is Ben Affleck secretly hooking up with Taylor Swift?

According to In Touch magazine, as cited by Gossip Cop, the duo has been texting each other ever since their mutual friend Cara Delevingne exchanged their phone numbers.

A source for the magazine claims that after Ben took his children to see Swift in concert last year, and he was “totally blown away by Taylor’s beauty and charming personality” when he met the singer backstage at her 1989 world tour.

But it wasn’t until Ben Affleck started working with Suicide Squad co-star Delevingne that the father of three realized he may have a chance with the “Style” singer, for she has officially ended things with boyfriend of two months, Tom Hiddleston.

The outlet claims that Ben Affleck is using this as his opportunity to get close to Taylor, who he is very much attracted to, the outlet claims. “After the show, Ben asked his Suicide Squad co-star Cara Delevingne to put them in touch,” the insider gushes.

“It started off as innocent texts, but those messages have become much more flirtatious, especially after Taylor split from Tom [Hiddleston]. She’s made it clear to Ben that she’s interested — and Taylor always gets what she wants.”

Taylor Swift has never shied away from the fact that she’s a hopeless romantic, and while she was alleged to have told pals that she wants to solely focus her attention on her music career when a man shows her some kind of interest, the multi-platinum selling artist simply can’t resist.

An insider continues by adding that Ben Affleck and Taylor have been texting each other on a consistent basis, to the point where it’s clear that the actor has no interest in reconciling with his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, anytime soon.

Affleck is said to have been staying at the family’s guest house in Pasadena, but just recently moved back into the main house, consequently meaning he’s sharing the same roof with Garner again.

However, now that it’s reportedly certain that Garner and Affleck will not be getting back together, the source gives the impression that Ben isn’t holding back when it comes to finding love again.

“She’s hoping to turn their friendship into a full-blown romance. Ben is on board, even though he still isn’t divorced from Jennifer Garner. He’s had a crush on Taylor since they first met and feels like they have a real connection… He’s slowly paving a way for a romance.”

It was just weeks ago when reports alleged that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were back on speaking terms again, The Hollywood Gossip alleged. While they supposedly claim to be nothing more than good friends, sources believe that if Affleck was open to the idea of rekindling his romance with Jennifer, the “Booty” star wouldn’t hesitate in taking her ex-fiance back, especially now that she’s single.

As previously mentioned, Taylor Swift had initially planned to focus the rest of the year on her music career, having found herself in so many scandals to write at least two albums worth of material. From the Kardashians to Kanye West, Katy Perry, and even her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris, Taylor hasn’t been able to catch a break from the bad press.

So, should it be true that Swift is, in fact, dating Ben Affleck, do you think it would only worsen her Hollywood reputation, or do you think the couple would make a good pairing?
