Ben Affleck possibly shut down rumors that there was hope for him and Jennifer Garner. He did not attend her birthday party this weekend.
Ben Affleck No Show
Interestingly enough, Affleck didn’t go to Garner’s 46th birthday party despite being in the same city. Rumor has it the actress’ ex-husband didn’t get an invite to her big event even though they were with one another earlier that day. They went to their daughter Serafina's soccer match. Their other two children Sam and Violet were in tow as well. Still, it might not be too surprising that Affleck didn’t get an invite as they didn’t seem to be very close to each other at the soccer game. Though, there are also reports that the exes went to church together.
The guests who did attend were celebrities such as former late-night host Chelsea Handler. They and other attendees enjoyed pizza from Olive Wood.
Meanwhile, Affleck is dating NBC Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. As for Garner, she has reportedly made it clear that she’s not ready to get back out there yet. Affleck and Garner split in 2014 after Affleck was accused of cheating with the children’s nanny.
For now, the two are on good terms as they co-parent their children together.
“They’re doing well and are both committed to providing a supportive environment for their kids,” said an insider. “They continue to remain cordial to one another. There is a lot of love and respect there.”
Still A Family
While Affleck wasn’t on Garner’s star-studded guest list for her birthday party, they have been spotted with their children spending family time together. Garner and the three children went to Hawaii to spend Easter Sunday with Affleck as he taped his latest film, Triple Frontier. During their trip, the family enjoyed a day at Oahu’s Seal Life Park. They played with dolphins, sea lions, and stingrays and “spent several hours” in the park together as one big, happy family.
Still, they made it clear that they are not back together as Garner stayed at a resort during the trip and Affleck was in a house close by. Interestingly enough, the two also live close to one another in Los Angeles. One insider even said Garner was happy to take the trip. Affleck’s girlfriend also visited him in Hawaii just days before Garner and their three children went to see him.
Affleck also reportedly makes a point to see his children in Los Angeles when his movie is on break from filming.
