Is Ben Affleck in the doghouse (aka, a Day’s Inn?)
As we reported yesterday, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck might be on the rocks, which means that we as viewers may have an awkward chance at seeing a three-kid, nearly ten-year marriage crumble. Ouch.
Radar says the relationship meltdown is all about Affleck’s alcohol and gambling, as he may have been sneaking off to Vegas for days on end to you know, DO Vegas.
“Ben is hardly around,” a confidante of the couple revealed. “He comes home for a little, and then has to jet off to another project.”
Also according to Radar, Affleck has practically moved out of their L.A. home and often stays at the Hotel Bel-Air.
“He stays there whenever he and Jen are having problems,” says the source.
“They speak in short, direct sentences to each other,” says an Affleck source familiar with the couple’s interactions. “They can be passive-aggressive and dismissive.”
As we’ve said, they have three kids: Violet, 9, Serpahina, 6, and Samuel, 3. But you gotta do what’s healthy for you, you know.
“Splitting up is Jennifer’s worst nightmare for their children,” explains a Garner source. “But there’s only so much she can do,” adds the source. “There comes a point where she just has to take care of herself and the children.”
Yikes. This does NOT sound good. What do you think- will they work it out?
