This isn’t a typical celebrity blind item. I’ll just say up front: it’s about Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Yet what’s in here suggests that there could be, well, many celebrity blind items coming out of their split, which is what’s interesting here. See what I mean after the break.
Like all the blogs, Lainey Gossip reported that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were divorcing after ten years of marriage. After reporting on their statement and such, she added this interesting tidbit at the end of her post:
I guess she finally had enough. And then negotiated on her terms? Because the date… the date and the ten years would benefit her, non? Can you imagine how much sh-t she has on him? And, now that they’ve decided to end it, how much sh-t that could come out on him? Out of respect for their family, a lot of people have been holding back on a lot of information. Now? You have to wonder how much of that will play out. Ahem, the key word in that sentence is “wonder”. Keep an eye on that. It could be a house of cards. Jennifer Garner is already beloved. And she will be even more. Him? If they don’t contain this, oh my god, the MiniVan Majority will annihilate him otherwise.
But what does Ben Affleck do with his new “freedom”? Can Ben Affleck help himself? Now that he’s not officially committed anymore?
More on this later in the days to come. In the meantime, I’ve given you a LOT of clues.
Hmmm… It’s the “LOT of clues” part that really caught my eye. I’ve been wondering about the timing of Jen and Ben’s announcement, too, I have to admit. One day AFTER their 10 year anniversary? I know people close to Jen are saying that she doesn’t need his money, but if they’ve been separated for 10 months, then why wait until now to announce their divorce? Could Ben have been trying to get things resolved before June 29, but Jen had too much “sh-t” (as Lainey says) on him to be rushed?
Can you figure out what other clues are in Lainey’s post? Share your thoughts in the comments: I know I’ll be thinking on this all day- LOL!
