Sometimes the tabloids get it right: BEN AFFLECK and JENNIFER GARNER announced yesterday that they’re getting divorced. They said, quote, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce.
“We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
They just celebrated their 10th anniversary on Monday, and they have three kids: A 9-year-old daughter named Violet, a 6-year-old daughter named Seraphina, and a 3-year-old son named Samuel.
A source tells E! Online they’ve been in therapy for two years, and in a trial separation for about a year.
And while the gossip rags predicted it, the fact is they were bound to be right eventually.
They’ve been predicting this since the 2013 Oscars, when Ben characterized their marriage as “work” . . . which he actually meant as a COMPLIMENT to Jennifer.
