Recent photos of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck hanging out and smiling together — plus reports that they’ve been seeing a marriage counselor — may give some fans hope that their divorce could be called off, but sources tell Radar Online that you shouldn’t get your hopes up — especially not after a particularly contentious throw-down between the warring exes over which of Affleck’s friends might also be having their nannies work overtime.
“Jennifer verbally attacked Ben personally just over a week ago. She got pissed off and asked him why she should be surprised that he’s sleeping with the nanny when his friends are doing the same thing,” a source says. “Basically she accused him of supporting another sham marriage and looking the other way.” Juicy!
So how about those hints of them working things out? “They’ve made attempts to put on happy, cooperative faces for their uncoupling, but the argument was a watershed moment,” the source says. “Ben is pissed off, and it’s had massive reverberations for Jennifer. Privately, Ben is done with the charade.” That sounds pretty severe.
