I guess…strike the gamblin’ and drinkin’…for now?
Apparently, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are getting divorced NOT because of drinking too much or a proclivity for gambling, but because he’s just too busy with his career. TMZ reports:
There are clearly 2 views on the demise of the marriage. As we first reported, some sources with a bird’s-eye view have told us Jen was fed up with Ben’s booze and blackjack habits. But other sources who are also very familiar with the couple are saying when push came to shove, Jennifer made no mention of alcohol and gambling … her beef was that Ben wasn’t a “present husband.”
Fact is … Ben has had back-to-back film projects for several years, and spent much of his time out of town. The sources say Jen felt ignored and neglected, and they argued frequently over it.
These sources say this has nothing to do with Ben being a neglectful dad. Quite the opposite, they say he’s a great dad who does everything he can for the kids. And, we’re told, she didn’t really have any beef about his parenting skills … her problem was Ben as a husband.
Hey, this doesn’t sound so bad- Jen just wanted something more for her relationship. TMZ says the breakup was mutual– sounds like it just kind of ran its course and/or couldn’t sustain itself with the expectations that are involved with an entertainment career.
What do you think is the REAL reason these two broke up?
