Jennifer Garner Allegedly Blindsided By Ben Affleck’s Comments, Still Has A Lot Of Hate For Her Ex-Husband
Jennifer Garner hasn’t allegedly gotten over Ben Affleck’s recent comments about their failed marriage.
In its Jan. 3 issue, In Touch Weekly claimed that Garner couldn’t believe that Affleck would make such insensitive comments about her when he knows her sacrifices while they were still married.
“It was a slap in the face to her and the kids. She’s livid that he basically blamed her after all she’s done to support him in his sobriety. She still harbors a lot of resentment about his drinking, but every single time he relapses, even after they divorced, Jen has been there to pick up the pieces,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that Garner was appalled when she heard the comments because she didn’t expect that Affleck would divulge such private details about their relationship.
“He doesn’t seem to be able to censor himself too well. Hopefully, Ben and Jen will get past this, though. They have both put a lot of hard work into healing their relationship after the divorce,” the source said.
Earlier this month, Affleck shocked his fans with the comments that he made about Garner. However, the actor immediately retracted his statement and said that he didn’t mean to disrespect his ex-wife.
Affleck added that he doesn’t want his kids to grow up thinking that it’s OK to say bad things about their mom.
As of late, Garner has not reacted to Affleck’s comments publicly. And it’s unclear if the exes talked about what happened in private. This shows that there’s no tension between the A-listers and even if there is, no one knows about it because their discussions took place in private.
Garner and Affleck announced their split in 2015. At the time, multiple sources cited different reasons for their breakup. Some accused Affleck of cheating on Garner with their children’s nanny.
Others also claimed that Affleck’s drinking problem damaged his relationship with Garner. But even after their split, Garner continued to support her ex-husband’s sobriety.
In fact, there was even a time when the A-listers were photographed on their way to a rehab facility after Affleck fell off the wagon.
So, fans are aware that Garner has been nothing but loving and supporting to Affleck. As such, no one believed The Tender Bar actor when he said that he felt trapped in his marriage to the Alias star.
