Oscar winner Ben Affleck is often in the headlines for his turbulent married life. Be it, Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Garner, there are always rumors that signal his troubled marriage. The 50-year-old actor who is currently married to JLo was previously married to Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares three children. Affleck and Garner were one of the most loved couples in Hollywood. The news of their separation left fans disheartened. The duo got separated in 2018, ending their 13-year marriage. Reportedly, the reason for their divorce was Affleck’s alleged relationship with his children’s nanny.

Why did Jennifer Garner divorce Ben Affleck?

Like every story, Garner and Affleck’s love story also had an end. But what makes the end ugly is the allegation levied against Affleck for being unfaithful to his wife, Jennifer Garner. Reportedly, Affleck cheated on his ex-wife with their children’s nanny. According to a source who claimed to be an acquaintance of the nanny, Christine Ouzounian, told People,

“For Christine, it was a real relationship. They had even talked about plans for celebrating his upcoming birthday on August 15.”

Following these rumors, Affleck was captured hanging out with Christine, which gave a firm base to all these rumors. Later, Garner opened up about this situation and said,

“People have pain—they do regrettable things, they feel shame, and shame equals pain. No one needs to hate him for me. I don’t hate him. Certainly, we don’t have to beat the guy up. Don’t worry—my eyes were wide open during the marriage. I’m taking good care of myself.”

Despite all these allegations, Affleck has blatantly denied them all.

Jennifer Garner’s take on all these allegations

When news breaks, it becomes a sensation, and before any confirmation, it goes viral. Amidst all these rumors of Affleck cheating on his wife, Garner stood up in support of her ex-husband and clarified the whole situation. Though the Daredevil actress never denied Affleck’s involvement with the nanny, she pointed out that the nanny had nothing to do with their decision to separate. In a conversation with Vanity Fair, the 50-year-old actress explained,

“Let me just tell you something, we had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation.”

The separation was not easy for Garner; she shared her emotional turmoil and how she managed herself and her children during this difficult phase. The actress said,

“Bad judgment? Yes. It’s not great for your kids for a nanny to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations with my children about the meaning of ‘scandal.'”

The former couple has now moved on in their lives, but somewhere it’s really hard for their fans to overcome this. Ben Affleck is currently married to Jennifer Lopez, and Garner is linked with businessman John Miller.
