Rumors about Ben Affleck cheating are escalating in the wake of his split from Jennifer Garner. There had been speculation for months that a Ben and Jen split was coming and the couple recently made it official. Were issues with Affleck cheating on Garner behind the break-up? Us Weekly addressed the buzz on Wednesday.
There has been a lot of talk about why Ben and Jen split, and they’ve been dogged with rumors for years now. Hearing buzz about Affleck cheating doesn’t come as anything new to many fans who have heard about possible issues more than once throughout the Ben and Jen marriage. Now, however, sources are said to be talking.
Us Weekly says that Garner talked with pals in recent months about Affleck cheating with a love interest on one of his movies. Jen supposedly kicked Ben out of their California home over it, but then she tried to forgive him. Other sources now claim that there had been trust issues for some time and that Jen had tried more than once to break things off, but Ben kept begging for additional chances.
Ben’s fans are already familiar with some of his vices, as his gambling has been well-publicized and there have been stories about other vices as well. GossipCop actually confirms that drinking was an issue for Ben as well, and that the drinking and gambling caused a lot of friction in the marriage.
As for Affleck cheating, people have been talking specifically in this latest go-around about Ben and Margot Robbie getting too close while working on “Suicide Squad.” A pal of Ben’s has denied anything improper happened between Affleck and Robbie, and sources have repeatedly claimed that there was no infidelity despite the many rumors over the years.
Ben and Jen are said to be working with their managers and lawyers to end their marriage amicably, with the children’s needs at the forefront of any agreements. Affleck will be living in a separate home on the property where family’s main house is in order to ensure their three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, adjust as smoothly as possible.
So far neither star is sharing much of anything regarding the split themselves, though there seem to be quite a few unnamed sources, pals and insiders chatting up various tabloids and media outlets. Will any specifics come out that prove that Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner? Some think that where there’s smoke, there’s fire, but so far the allegations don’t seem to have any proof to go along with them.
