Amidst rumors that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are going for divorce, the actor seemed to have backed out from this plan as he cannot afford to lose his fortune.
According to a report from Radar Online, the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor will not give in to Jennifer Garner’s demand to separate because he knows he will become broke.
“Now that Jen’s deal is on the table, he’s beginning to realize she’s going to leave him flat broke and there’s nothing he can do about it,” an insider told the gossip site.
The source added that Ben Affleck wants his divorce with Jennifer Garner to be called off as the process will be worth $75 million. This will reportedly leave the actor with no cash at hand.
“The only solution he’s got to keeping his fortune is to patch things up with her,” the source said. “But it’s not solely about cash — he does love their family and he and Jen do genuinely care for each other.”
Despite the ex-couple’s recent outings together with their children—Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4—a source said that they are not back together again.
“She seems adamant about going through with it,” a source close to the Alias actress told People.
The insider added that though they spent months together in Europe while Ben Affleck films his movie Justice League, Jennifer Garner denied the reunion and even laughed about the issue.
Meanwhile, a commenter for Radar Online aired their opinion about her divorce from Ben Affleck, saying she deserves more.
“I never thought he was good enough for her,” one user said. “I’m not a big fan of her movies but she has to be a world class mother because her kids are always so happy looking. He’ll be sorry if he loses her. Maybe she’ll stay, maybe not, but she deserves so much better.”
Last year, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they will have a divorce ten years after their marriage.
A report from The Hollywood Gossip said that Ben Affleck cheated with their nanny Christine Ouzounian
