Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner On The Rocks

They haven't split, and I think they love their kids so much they might choose to just to live separate lives ala Goppster and Chris Martin, but there is definitely trouble in paradise and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are definitely on the rocks. The last thing Ben needs right now is another wave of bad publicity. Things have not been going swimmingly on the set of his Batman movie and he has been partying almost every second he is not shooting and has had the opportunity to come back to LA a couple of times but has chosen to stay in Detroit instead. I'm sure he will make an appearance this weekend for Father's Day, but, if he doesn't, then you will know that things are even worse than before. If Jennifer Garner can't keep him on the straight and narrow path then you you know that no one else will be able to. he never had a Charlie Sheen type slide, but he has not been single for quite some time so maybe he would overcompensate if they do get divorced and we would see him holed up in The Plaza with a bunch of hookers.

I don't care what anyone says, I liked them as a family and I think it would be sad if they split up. They've sold a damn good happy family image though, that's for sure.

AJ said...

Sad.
She seems to love him so much despite his demons. I always thought after JLO he never wanted to be super public with his relationship with his wife and family.

cubsfan1990 said...

How does the entry know this? Did he make this up? Who's telling him this???

Candyland said...

I wonder if he's not boozing again :( Sad. I like them.

He's getting kicked out of Detroit and Windsor casinos left and right. One of the casinos used to be my client and they're letting him gamble there for the time being, but keeping an eye on him. I think he's been banned from the ones across the lake in Canada.

rolotomassi said...

also, remember he's working on ProjectGreen again with Matt Damon who supposedly keeps popping in & "visiting" him re:project(a/k/a:trying to help him)

FSP said...

Things must be really bad if he's willing to stay in Detroit.

Lil P said...

I guess the pressure to keep up this happy family image got to be too much. He won his oscar & now it's let loose!

auntliddy said...

Thats a shame, jen does seem to adore him and overlook ALOT. If he blows this he has only himself to blame. And who doesnt want to go home to jennifer garner??!!

Jessi said...

No!!! I want them to work it out. I shouldn't care, but I do, I like them!

Krgl420 said...

From what I've been reading on this site this has been coming on for a long time. There is only so much one person can take sometimes. Doesn't seem like he really wants to be married, but is because it's good for his brand. Poor Jen and kids I think she really loves him, or maybe it's the status he brings? Just thoughts

Lula Surber said...

Personally I would kick his ass to the curb. He has disrespected his wife and family in every way possible and there doesn't seem to be any consequences from her, so why should he change? Staying together for the kids is bullshit. Kids growing up in a household where this shit is going on are not going to be well adjusted. Kids aren't stupid. They know when things aren't right. I wouldn't want to raise daughters to believe that it's perfectly normal AND acceptable for your husband to treat you that way. What about when they are old enough to get online and read about all the wonderfully shitty things did while he was off away from home. Jennifer needs to grow a set (no matter how much she loves him) and kick his ass out. She deserves a lot better than he's giving her and she can go back to having an acting career too. It's not like she doesn't have good options. Who knows maybe Michael Vartan is still interested. Let Ben go off and workout his stupid adolescent behaviors on his own time, not his family's time. He's a grade A douche!

sugarbread maker said...

Ben is like a caged animal wanting out. And Michael Vartan moved on and has kids.

sugarbread maker said...

Ben wanted Jlo but the public and his people wouldn't let him. He should just get a divorce and be with Jlo where he was really happy

figgy said...

I don't understand how movie stars -- with all the close-ups, much moreso than tv stars -- can go and party and then try to film. Don't they look ugly? Haggard? Don't they want to be well-rested and on top of their game in order to do the best job possible? Do ANY of them think like that??

Dingle Barry said...

Jenn has been hitting her head on a brick wall for years and putting a smile on her face. It takes two BEN! You've been living two lives for years and we all know it! Man up and be a husband and father, not a douchebag. Three beautiful children, a beautiful wife, a secure future, and all are healthy. You've won at life!

Ben, you're an addict. You will bet it all and lose your ass. Guess how that ends up Ben? You. Alone. With no one. Not even your fans. Only yourself to blame. Life goes on without you. F-You Ben! You're a selfish prick.

Meanwhile the rest of us toil at the grindstone day in and day out and are grateful for the little things we do have. Keep your life Ben. I wouldn't want it. (Jenn is pretty hot though)

PghGirl said...

I totally agree

Brenda L said...

You're f*cking up, Ben...get it under control.....

crila16 said...

But...but...they've been on the rocks since they got married. Ben is a known partier and strip-a-holic. A leopard doesn't change their spots.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I agree. They are good for each other. He needs her.

Dingle Barry said...

Crila, if Ben wants to change and he gets the supportive help he needs (he can certainly afford it), yes, he can change his ways. It's up to him.

sugarbread maker said...

Well he is wearing a mask

FrenchGirl said...

@Crila16
2 words...trent reznor.
This musician had some huge drug alcohol troubles and since 10 years he's straight.He's married with 2 kids and successfull.He understood what were his addict problems and how to do to avoid the tentations.He cut every relation with some friends because he knew/ know they were damaging

Its just U said...

It's their marriage and if she wants to try and work hard at it then good for her.
Of course he should be trying too, but sometimes addicts don't see that. They are deceptive and selfish by nature.
My mam and dad are married nearly 40 years and for about 25 of those my dad was a falling down drunk alcoholic.
My mam stood by him and helped him even.when we all thought she should kick him out. Things were awful at times, but we got through them as a family.
He's sober now and loving being a Granda. I really think he learned how much he hurt us and made that change. And I admire him for it. And my mam too.

Courtney said...

I always got the feeling he kind of got trapped in that relationship. . .it started right after JLo (rebound) and than opps - she gets pregnant. She always seemed more into him than he did her

Hammer_Girl said...

When Ben crashes and burns, I petition for Timothy Olyphant to pick up the pieces for Jen.

Yes I just admitted to watching a sappy chic flick.

Shelly Shell said...

Jen was who got him clean & sober again, he started having career success & thought he could handle alchol & cards again. Jen just needs to put herself & the kids first now.

Unknown said...

Agreed. But if it doesn't work out... Ben! Call me!

Jessica Larson said...

She has & will do everything she has to for him, she always loved him more than he loves her. She got him the life everyone wishes for, but he's threwing it away. She needs to love herself more.

Tina Mallette said...

This is sad, she did her best he didn't really want to change because surely partying and gambling are not worth losing your family for, even if you have no more feelings for the wife what about your kids but out of sight out of mind for the addict.

He won't be the first or last person to lose what is really precious due to their addictions and live to regret what they lost later.

@Hammer, I will admit I kinda love that movie! And he is so hot!

Wee S said...

Are you really my sister IJU? cuz you pretty much described my life to a tee...

Boishglamorpuss said...

Golf claps. Brilliant.

The Real Dragon said...

So we just now believing radar

Sherry said...

IJU: What a nice ending to your story. Glad to hear your da is well and appreciating the bounty of love.

Yes, Jen helped him clean up and he's had huge success in doing so. He apparently doesn't love her (or himself) enough to continue. I hope Jen does what's best for her and their children.

And BTW that's the first picture I've ever seen (sure they're out there with their kids in other photos- English lesson) but I have never seen one before.

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

ugh. sad for the kids. good luck with all of that.

bellaluna said...

Add me to the " like them together" list. I hope Ben doesn't screw it up, because I have a feeling he's put Jen through a lot.

bellaluna said...

With narcissistic people i.e. my hubs-for-now, it is nearly impossible to get them to focus on what really matters. My asshole husband has been gone for almost 2 years, and I have loyal to him and focusing on the good in our relationship.

He, OTOH, has solely been focusing on himself, the bad times, and HIS own personal happiness. And our little one just turned 5.

LottaColada said...

Scott Foley is starting to look pretty good now, huh?

Renoblondee said...

Please. Jen cheated on her first husband. She's no saint people.

rajahcat said...

Scott Foley looks fantastic all of the time---Jen you screwed up there

but I like them together.....sad and I hope not-she is a native West Virginian like me so I root for her

I always remember how he make that comment in his AA acceptance speech kind of dissing marriage and tried to back track

I think JLO dumped him too due to the gambling......and maybe even cheating.....so I don't think his friends made the decision for him re: her

rajahcat said...

i also think he is an addictive personality

gambling, drinking, women and maybe even drugs.......he fights the urge to live excessively and fails repeatedly

Frosty said...

Alongside the talent, BA is just a really compulsive, self-destructive guy. I hope he can pull it together. I feel like his life would go right down the toilet with the marriage giving him some stability.

califblondy said...

Don't hate, but I still want him with JLo.

Senor Salty said...

Self Detruction

Anothergrayhare said...

the guy is gorgeous and rich, very hard for most guys to resist all the temptations out there when they are in his situation. I admire those who do.

nurysp said...

well he tried
and he realized this family straight and narrow life aint for him

blow and hookers for ben!

Ari said...

Some people just shouldn't have money

The Original CDAN Reader said...

People, please. If this is true (like Garner being 2 years pregnant) then this is all part of a big chess game:

1. JLO kicks Casper to the curb
2. Garfleck implodes

Eureka! They can finally be together again, this time older, richer, (not sure about wiser) but w/o the pressure of an impending marriage or kids. They’ve already crossed those things off of their lists. Nothin’ to do but have sexy times!

I agree about Garner being fake as hell. Yes, Ben needed an image rehab and Garner worships Martha Stewart so she was perfectly suited for the home front, but she desperately chased him for YEARS before she snagged him when he was at his lowest, and that bitch cheated, too.

Jen you served your purpose and you popped-out the money makers so you’re set for life. No, you won’t be part of a Hollywood power couple anymore, but it may be time to stop playing house with a man you can’t tame.

MadLyb said...

It doesn't seem as if he should have ever gotten married. If appearances mean anything, he's pretty miserable. And he got kicked out of another casino after stumbling in a disheveled mess. He could probably use a long stint in rehab for his drinking and gambling addictions.

The worst thing he could possibly do for his career is to leave his wife and kids. The soccer mom set is not very forgiving, and they're invested in this relationship.

NaughtyNurse said...

I'm pulling for them.

TalksTooMuch said...

Marriage is tough, y'all

Northbynorthwest said...

No one in their right mind would choose to stay in Detroit. I'd be seriously worried for him.

Malibu Borebee said...

Affleck is a mess but Garner is Tracy Flick incarnate.

Speaking of Tracy, this is Reese and Ryan or Goop and Martin all over again. Bad marriage ends, mean, controlling Mrs. tries to paint Mr. as the bad guy. With Reese it worked, with Goop it didn't.

Garner always has someone waiting in the wings. With Foley she had Vartan. With Vartan she had Affleck. Who's she got in her back pocket this time?

MelanieH said...

+1 people can change, but it is ultimately something that no one but them can decide to successfully accomplish.

FrenchGirl said...

Some peoples saw Affleck and Garner together last week
"@holly_warolin: my uncle just met Jennifer Gardner and Ben Affleck on Sunday ��"
"@DanielleMarie2: Just casually in line behind Ben Affleck, Jennifer Graner, and their daughter at holiday market. They are PERFECT."
@busyB_313: Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck spotted @ Whole Foods downtown !!!

BitchieMitchie said...

I fourth this! He needs her to stay grounded. Otherwise, he goes all "Hollywood" and could end up as a Charlie Sheen...no one needs another one of those. Plus, when Ben is every man, he's so much more likeable!

The Enquirer said...

I always thought he hooked up with her to rehab his image after that nightmare that was Bennifer. That relationship always made me cringe.

I thought he was holding it together but it looks like his gambling habit is back with a vengeance. You know you have a bad problem when you're going to Caesers Ontario to gamble because Vegas won't have you.

I'm also wondering if the outrage from Batman is bringing him down too. The world is waiting for him to fail.

Henriette said...

He will be able to go back to his true love JBlow now.

krychek said...

Affleck never done well with big productions. he can't handle it.he want to be a big power couple,but can't handle it.he want to be on top ,but its not working for him,it's hard to be on top and be single.he should have tried it.might have work for him ,instead of playing games.he want to be the next Clint Eastwood.he is on the way,but without a wife and family ?i really hope so.it shouldn't matter what is you're status.but again,this is HOLLYWOOD.

KSierra said...

Marriage is HARD with these "man-children" sometimes, I KNOW! Mr. K is 50 and is still having his damned "mid-life crisis" every 3-4 days or so. I'm 2 yrs older, having menopause, and he is WAY worse than me. I THINK that I'm making a bit of progress, though. Mr. K was quite the playboy man-whore back in the day, and they HATE giving up the fantasy that they're still all THAT. I realize my man-whore isn't an A list movie star, but, honestly, they're ALL THE SAME...and I just have to keep laying down the LAW. It helps that he's afraid of me (I'm much tougher & more intelligent than he is, AND, I grew up in Oakland! I can impale him with just my WORDS!!) No offense to you lovely men here, but you're kind of a pain in our asses! Women's menopause is a myth, we just sweat all the damn time! You middle-aged "men" are much worse! ;)

@ Lula --- agree 1,000,000,000 %

Shame on Ben!!! Asswh***! Jen saved his a**, career and put up with his sh*t to raise his profile and help him get another Oscar. Let him fall and loose everything. Let his best friend Matt ditch him. Let him fall prey to a 20'something stripper a.k.a "aspiring" opportunist. Maybe he'll get the message then. Moron.
