For the past few weeks, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been plagued by rumors of a split. Several tabloids and gossip sites are alleging the two have finally hit their roughest patch and won’t make it to their 10th anniversary.
According to Radar Online, Garner has taken the couple’s children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, and moved to Canada while she films her latest movie Nine Lives. The site blames the impending split on Affleck’s gambling and general “shirking” of his dad and husband duties (in addition to time in Vegas, he’s been spotted without his wedding ring and opted to spend Mother’s Day with his own mother instead of Garner and family).
But according to The Gossip Table, this is simply a rough patch typical of any marriage. The two displayed their united front, holding hands in their Brentwood neighborhood and taking the kids out for ice cream — with photographers in tow. However, there are some moments of concern: When split rumors swirled around the original Ben and Jen (Affleck and Jennifer Lopez) they were photographed looking like a happy couple as well. And we all know how that ended.
Is Bennifer 2.0 headed for a split? Is this a real sign of them being OK or just a photo opp?
