Despite the pictures we saw over the weekend of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck hitting the mall with their three kids, it looks like things might be a bit more tense behind the scenes. After spending Saturday afternoon at the mall, Jennifer was spotted arriving at an Atlanta hotel alone. Uh-oh.
Yesterday, Jennifer was seen returning to the home she’s renting for just a few minutes: she picked up Violet. The two went out to do some shopping. After she and Violet left the house, Ben was seen going for a walk outside, so it looks like he’s staying at the house. You can see the pictures of Jen and Violet as well as Ben going for a walk in the gallery below.
What I heard was that he was staying in a guest house on the property while Jen and the kids were in the main house. If that was true, then Jennifer must be really mad not to even be able to stay on the same property with him. I have to say, I give her major credit. If it was me and I was renting the house, then BEN would be the one checking into a hotel!
She hasn’t said anything publicly, but I think it’s telling that she (neither personally nor via her rep) have denied any of the headlines talking about how hurt and angry she is over Ben’s alleged affair with their former nanny, Christine Ouzounian. Add in the fact that she’s holed up at a luxury hotel where Ben is known to go for privacy despite being unemployed, and it’s hard to believe Ben’s continued denials about the alleged affair. I guess Jen is doing what she has to do to get through what must be an incredibly difficult period.
