A lot has happened since Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their decision to get divorced at the beginning of the summer. They put up a united front, saying they were going to live on the same property (Ben would live in a guest house) so they could both be involved in parenting their three kids. Then friends of their former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, started saying that Christine and Ben had an affair that led to Jennifer firing Christine. Now Jennifer is said to be “rethinking” their living situation going forward.
A source explained:
Jen will always make sure that Ben spends as much time with the kids as he wants, but she is rethinking their living situation. he can’t stand the situation Ben has put her and the kids in.”
Can you blame her?
For his part, Ben continues to deny having an affair with their former nanny. A source said:
[Ben] has been very unhappy with the attention and the unwarranted circus around it.”
Ben recently returned to LA with their three kids while Jennifer finishes filming her movie in Atlanta.
Ben spent the whole weekend focused on the kids. They all seemed to have a fun weekend. Ben took them on several outings and looked happy.”
Their home is still undergoing renovation, so Ben and Jen have to figure out what they’re going to do in terms of their living situation soon, especially since the kids will start school soon.
They are thinking about the housing situation together and continue to work on the relationship. Any family going through a split hurts. They are in a much better place now.”
No matter what they decide upon in terms of their living situation, they are both committed to their children.
[They] are planning to raise their kids together.”
Another source said that Jennifer isn’t putting undue stress on herself.
[Jen] is being smart and not putting too much pressure on herself right now. When she comes back to L.A., she will take things day by day.”
I don’t blame her for taking her time. “Nannygate” has been a fiasco; it’s completely understandable that she’s ticked. I’m glad she is focusing on what’s best for the kids throughout it all.
