The public finds it fascinating when A-listers are paired, and Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are probably the best examples of this. Since getting back together and getting married, the couple has garnered a lot of media attention, including numerous rumors about their private marital lives.
Thus, there are not many celebrity pairings that have sparked as much public interest and conversation as Lopez and Affleck’s. For the unversed, the couple tied the knot on July 16, 2022.
A recent flurry of sympathy for Lopez was brought on by a series of images that showed Affleck spending time with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. It appears that the Air director’s frequent outings with his former wife are upsetting his fans, especially since rumors about his marital problems with Lopez surfaced just before their wedding anniversary.
Ben Affleck’s Photos With Jennifer Garner Offended Fans?
In the digital age, relationship rumors and gossip about celebrities have soared to unimaginable heights. The internet erupted with rumors and commentary as soon as pictures of Ben Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner hanging out surfaced.
Just a few days after being seen getting cozy in a car in Los Angeles earlier this month, Affleck and Garner were recently spotted out in Santa Monica. This has led some fans to question the Dazed and Confused actor’s commitment to his wife, Jennifer Lopez.
Fans expressed their sympathy for Lopez in this case because they thought the photos might have given her anxiety or discomfort as one fan tweeted:
Garner is a dangerous, obsessed woman, using kids to control a very weak man, one with addiction and depression issues.

While another said:
I’m happy they are moving passed him saying that she made him drink because he was so unhappy with her and their kids.

Meanwhile, Affleck received criticism from a fan, who said:
Ben and Garner are the real ‘Bennifer’. They belong together with their kids but Ben is a fool.

However, unlike the fan’s false narrative of conflict between couples, the pictures of Affleck and Garner showed a different reality. It was clear that the former couple still had a respectful and cordial co-parenting dynamic.
Contrary To Fans’ Belief, Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Are Friendly Ex-Couple
Ben Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner seem to be getting along just fine as co-parents. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor, 51, and the Yes Day actress, 51, were reportedly spotted in a black Mercedes-Benz luxury car on Tuesday in Santa Monica, California.
Affleck, who recently celebrated his one-year wedding anniversary to 54-year-old Jennifer Lopez, seemed to get along well with Garner because she was spotted hugging him earlier this month.
The former partners wore casual attire to the daytime meeting. Affleck was dressed in blue jeans, a gray long-sleeved top, and white Air Jordan Nikes. Garner wore gray slacks, a long-sleeved black top, and sunglasses.
Garner and Jennifer Lopez have developed a rapport while balancing out their blended family, according to an insider who spoke to Entertainment Tonight in June. The insider described the relationship between the two as
“Very cordial and very healthy and functioning”.
The source further claimed that Garner is totally dedicated to the welfare of her kids and the Alias actress was in
“A great space and feels good about where things currently stand with the new family dynamic.”
The insider also added:
“They have open communication and both are working to make this transition the best it could possibly be.’
On the work terms, Affleck will be co-producing the upcoming Doug Liman’s heist thriller film The Instigators with Matt Damon, in which both will play lead roles. The release date hasn’t been announced yet.
