Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Finalize Divorce After 3-YEAR Separation!

Well, it’s never pleasant when a couple gets divorced, but in this case, the news might be cause for celebration.

After three years of ups, downs, rehabs, relapses, marriage counseling, and accusations of nanny-banging, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have finalized their divorce.

Radar Online is reporting today that a judgment in Affleck and Garner’s court case was entered in Los Angeles Superior Court today.

Which means that for the first time since 2005, Ben and Jen are both legally single.

The emphasis here is on “legally.” 

Garner is dating businessman John Miller these days, and Ben may or may not still be involved with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton.

Not only does the selection of current partners speak volumes about the difference in personalities and priorities that likely contributed to the couple’s decision to split it also serves as a reminder of how long it’s been since these two parted ways.

When Ben and Jen separated, Obama was in office and Batman was most recently portrayed on screen by Christian Bale.

Hell, Affleck had a whole long-term relationship with Lindsay Shookus — complete with marriage rumors — between his relationships with Garner and Sexton.

Affleck has been to rehab at least twice in the time since he parted ways with Garner.

We say this not to shame the guy, but to point out that it has been a really long time since he moved out of the home he once shared with Garner.

To be fair, the process didn’t take so long simply due to indecisiveness on Ben and Jen’s parts (though there was certainly some of that.)

In fact, it had a bit to do with Affleck’s multiple rehab stints and Garner’s desire to do right by her kids.

Sources close to the former couple say Jen wanted to work out an amicable custody arrangement before finalizing the divorce but couldn’t bring herself to trust Affleck alone with the kids until he got serious about getting sober.

At some point in the past few months, he was apparently able to convince her that all is well, as Affleck filed divorce papers while still in rehab

And so ends one of the great love stories of the 21st Century.

At least Ben still has Matt Damon.


Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez: Engaged?!

For ages, fans have longed to know if a Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez wedding is on the way.

They’ve been official for more than a year and a half.

Now, fans believe that they’ve spotted J Lo sporting a massive diamind ring. Take a look, below:

The ring made its debut on Alex Rodriguez’s Instagram in a video set in the stands of a baseball stadium.

“Alright, here we are at Fenway,” Alex says.

“After four and a half… two to one, Dodgers!” he says.

Then he asks: “Jennifer, what’s the sign?”

She gestures, as you’re about to see, as if making a ruling on the game.

“Alright, there you have it,” he says. “Looks like a hit and run, back to you, Joe!”

Fans and followers were less interested in his pretend sports commentary than they were in that whopper of a diamond ring.

“Yoooooo did somebody get their ring?!” asked a fan.

That fan continued: “Forget the finals, tell me this is real!”

“That’s a big rock for Jenny from the block!” quipped another commenter.

“What is that bling @jlo,” another asked. “Are you love birds engaged?”

After more than a year and a half of officially dating, it would not be a surprise.

Now, some folks very wisely pointed out that this may have been bait or that these hopeful fans may have been jumping the gun.

After all, the ring appears to be on J Lo’s right hand — not, traditionally speaking, where one wears a ring.

But some very observant followers noticed that, in comparison to other phtoos, she and Alex’s positions seemed to be reversed.

In other words, that the video was mirrored.

“She’s actually on opposite side,” a commenter writes. “Watch her video, it’s on her left and she’s sitting to the right of him.”

If that comment is correct, she’s wearing a huge diamond ring on her left ring finger.

A pal of Alex made a very blunt comment.

The comment reads: “The sign I see is engagement!”

Those words were followed by three diamond emojis.

Curiously, Alex chose to respond.

“Hi Kimberly!” he wrote back. “Miss you guys!”

He followed his words with a thumbs up emoji.

Out of everything, Alex’s comment-without-commenting seems like the strongest indicator.

Sometimes, celebrities leak their own news in a way that gives them plausible deniability about it.

They drop hints and build up hype before they’re ready to make things official.

In the mean time, sometimes celebrities play pranks on their fans when those fans are hoping for something. 

It’s weird, we know.

Finally, sometimes people don’t even think about their jewelry or what it might signify. Yes, even public figures.

These two didn’t go public until March of 2017, but were believed to be dating before that.

It may be that they have now taken the next step and are simply engaged in plain sight.

No matter what fans may hope to hear, it is perfectly alright for them to simply enjoy their time as a couple.

Sometimes, you want to try things out before you make a big announcement. Just to be sure.


Jennifer Garner: New Boyfriend’s Abusive Past Revealed?

After a rocky few years, Jennifer Garner’s life appears to be on the upswing these days.

Garner recently finalized her divorce from Ben Affleck following a three-year separation, and both her career and her love life seem to be progressing swimmingly.

But there are complications to Garner’s recent run of success.

Yes, she’s once again acting in something other than Capital One commercials, but her two most high-profile projects of late — the action thriller Peppermint and the HBO series Camping — were both panned by critics and ignored by audiences.

These days, Garner is dating John Miller, a California businessman who’s rumored to be the mother of three’s first serious love interest since she separated from Affleck.

Now, however, the relationship is being tainted by scandal, as Radar Online has unearthed some seriously unflattering court documents from Miller’s 2011 divorce from Caroline Campbell.

Campbell alleges that Miller behaved in a controlling and manipulative fashion throughout their marriage.

After the divorce, she claims, he used the couple’s kids as a pawn in his ongoing mind games:

“He takes the children when I am out of town working, but he does not allow me to have them when he is working in town and has others caring for our children,” reads one filing by Campbell.

“That serves his purpose, bolstering his position regarding child support issues and giving him the satisfaction of controlling me and punishing me for ending our marriage,” Campbell continues.

“It puts me in a position of begging him for the time back so I can care for our children the same amount of time that he (or more accurately, his family) does.

“I feel pressure to avoid doing anything that might upset him, and pressure to comply with whatever terms he imposes.”

People are rarely depicted in a positive light in divorce documents, but word that Miller might be a world-class douche is particularly troubling in this case, as Garner is fresh from a relationship that’s often been described as deeply unhealthy.

Here’s hoping that going forward Jen will have an easier time finding both the men and the acting projects that she deserves.


John Miller: Who is This Dude Dating Jennifer Garner?!?

Jennifer Garner stars in the new HBO series Camping.

According to most television critics, it is awful.

But here’s a piece of good news for the actress…

… she is reportedly in a very happy and healthy relationship!

According to Us Weekly sources, the beloved star is dating a 40-year old businessman named John Miller.

What his lacks in originality, his personality more than makes up for with how much he apparently cares about Garner.

“They’ve been together six months – and it’s getting pretty serious,” one insider tells the aforementioned tabloid, while another chimes in as follows:

“Jen brings out the best in John, and he is the happiest he has probably ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship.”

Garner, of course, has been romantically linked to Ben Affleck and Ben Affleck only for over a decade.

The stars were married and they share three kids together and, finally, after many years of going back and forth, the famous couple’s divorce was just finalized this fall.

Affleck, as you likely know, moved on a long time ago, having semi-recently dated both Lindsay Shookus and Shauna Sexton.

But Miller is the first lucky gentleman to be associated with Garner since she became single.

Just who is John Miller, you are likely wondering?

He is the CEO of CaliGroup, a company that owns Miso Robotics and a chain of about 50 CaliBurger restaurants.

Like Garner, he was previously married. And he’s very well off.

Garner and Affleck got married in 2005 and went on to welcome three kids: Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6.

They announced their separation one day before their 10th wedding anniversary, and both filed for divorce in April of 2017. The case was finalized on October 4.

At last.

Affleck has publicly struggled with an addiction to alcohol.

He checked into to rehab for the third time just a few weeks ago, with Garner earning universal praise and acclaim for sticking by his side throughout this difficult time.

She has never bad-mouthed Ben to the press and has never threatened to take his children away or anything of that nature.

She is clearly a great person.

Heck, just this past Father’s Day, while Affleck was off sleeping with some other woman, Garner wrote the following online:

Our kids are lucky to have a dad who looks at them the way you look at them and loves them the way you love them, @benaffleck. #happyfathersday #threeluckykids #haveagreatday.

She’s the best.

Treat her well, John Miller.


Amal Clooney: Will Someone Please Bang Jennifer Aniston?!

It’s been eight months since Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux filed for divorce, and in that time, there have been countless rumors about both parties’ romantic prospects.

As is often the case with this sort of thing, those reports have run the gamut from absurd to completely plausible.

Justin dating Emma Stone falls on the “plausible” end of the spectrum (especially since the actors star in a new Netflix series together).

Jen getting back with Brad Pitt?

Well, we probably don’t need to tell you that that one sounds a little too good to be true.

Anyway, just because she’s not knocking boots with her ex, that doesn’t mean Jen is lonely.

According to a new report from Life & Style, Jen has recruited none other than Amal Clooney to help her locate attractive young rich guys to keep her company while she decides her next move.

“Amal knows plenty of intelligent, sexy, successful men who would jump at the chance to date Jen and has been busy compiling a list of eligible bachelors,” a source tells the tabloid. 

“Jen’s ready to get back out there. She completely trusts Amal’s judgment.”

But from the sound of it, Jen is in no hurry to rush right back into a serious relationship:

“[She’s been] asking her girlfriends to set her up with someone in his 20s or 30s who won’t get too attached,” the insider adds.

“Jen’s sick and tired of being portrayed as the heartbroken one and thinks being spotted with a handsome new man on her arm could help set the record straight.”

And the source says Aniston has been quite clear with regard to what she’s looking for:

“Jen’s telling friends that she wants to date a younger guy. But she needs help. She wants her friends to set her up.”

We say go for it.

No one expects rich and famous men to settle down right away after they get divorced.

In fact, they’re encouraged to play the field for a while.

So while we very much doubt that Jen was waiting for our approval to go bang some 21-year-old male model, we hereby officially give her the thumbs-up.
