It’s been a difficult week for Ben Affleck.
Since announcing to the world that he and wife Jennifer Garner have made the “difficult decision to divorce”, the rumours have been flying about possible reasons for their split.
With some rumours even circulating that another woman was the cause of the split, the latest news does confirm that there is another woman in Ben’s life at the moment.
It’s not what you might think though.
No mystery girlfriends to be found in Ben’s life as of right now apparently. Rather, the 42-year old actor has been “really leaning on his mother for support”, an insider tells People magazine.
Similar to when Ben went through his highly publicised split from Jennifer Lopez, the Batman vs Superman star has turned to his mother for support.
An insider close to the couple has revealed that “she is a constant rock for him.” While Jennifer is also “turning to her family and friends,” the main support system for Ben appears to be his mom.
Ben had been spending lots of time with Christine, his mom, while Jennifer, 43, was in Montreal shooting her new film Nine Lives.
The couple’s children Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3, are also said to have been spending plenty of time with their dad and their grandmother since the couple announced their impending divorce.
Currently the pair are in the Bahamas to spend time together with their children. According to a source in Us Weekly, the Bahamas is “a place they've been going to for years that's very private and special for their kids.”
