Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are no longer a couple. The two announced their divorce last week and it seems that things are not easy for the famous actor. According to the latest reports, Ben has asked the help of his mother, Christine. Moreover, sources said that this is not the first time when the popular actor gets support from his mom. Christine has also been there for Ben after his separation from Jennifer Lopez.
“While Jen is turning to her family and friends, the person in Ben’s life is his mother,” an insider claimed according to People magazine. The same source went on to explain that Christine is a constant rock for her son. “She had remained close to the family as well. She’s been there for him through this extremely difficult time. He is really leaning on his mother for support. Ben and his mom have always been very close,” the insider said.
Insiders claimed that Christine is also close to her grandchildren. According to these sources, Ben and his three children have commonly spent time with Christine when Jennifer was at work. Well, what seems to be quite certain about the separation of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner is that the two remained in good terms. In fact, the former pair has been vacationing together in the Bahamas. Allegedly, they wanted to get away of the city in the wake of the debates linked to their marriage, but they also wanted to show their kids that despite the divorce, they are still a family.
So, Ben and Jennifer are spending time together with the children. “[The Bahamas] is a place they’ve been going to for years that’s very private and special for their kids. When either of them have had work commitments they have been leaving to go fulfill them,” a source said.
Insiders also claimed that Ben wanted to remain close to the family, so he has not moved out of the couple’s property. Ben and Jennifer continue to live on the same property, although in different homes.
