Ben affleck dating actress jennifer garner
The “Miracles from Heaven” star, who filed for divorce in April nearly two years after the A-list Hollywood couple first split, took the rare step of distancing herself from a People magazine cover story that speculated about when she might start dating again.
Garner and Affleck’s split in 2015 after a 10-year marriage has been one of the most talked-about breakups in Hollywood, especially as Affleck continued to live on the family property.
The allegations started with actress and former MTV VJ Hilarie Burton who Affleck groped on the set of TRL back in 2004.
Burton even supplied video of the incident for those who called her account into question.
But the fact remains that new or forgotten evidence of appalling behavior on Affleck's part keeps making the rounds on social media, and the actor is currently making the situation worse by keeping quiet.
The latest allegation comes from makeup artist Annamarie Tindler, who tweeted yesterday that Affleck sexually assaulted her in 2014.
“Our sources tell us the trio hung out for about an hour, and everything was quite friendly considering the circumstances,” the paparazzi agency said, citing its sources.
A separate source tells PEOPLE that the couple’s “goal is first and foremost is to keep a healthy and happy family.--(Geez Louise), but those are so ridiculous they’re easy to ignore.”This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight.“It’s not an easy situation for Jen,” says a source close to the actress. Shookus, who shares a daughter with her ex, hasn’t met Affleck and Garner’s kids yet, the source close to Garner says.She expected Affleck to start dating publicly following their split and divorce filing in April, says the source: “She knew it would happen soon. putting the kids’ happiness first.” Affleck, 44, and Shookus, 37, made their relationship public over the last week, stepping out to a play in London and to dinner Thursday in L. “Jen and Ben have talked about not introducing the kids to people they date until it’s serious,” the source explains — adding that now Garner “isn’t thinking about dating — she just wants to protect and spend time with the kids.” Since they separated in 2015 after 10 years of marriage, Garner and Affleck have made cooperative co-parenting a priority for their three kids — Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
