After Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus seemingly went public with their relationship last week, how is Jen coping?
A new report by People citing multiple but varying sources suggests that Garner is staying in “mama-bear mode” for the sake of her three children whom she shares with Ben, but she isn’t particularly happy that he’s romantically involved with somebody from his past.
“It’s not an easy situation for Jen,” a source close to the situation revealed. The 45 year old expected Ben to start dating soon after they announced their official split and divorce back in April this year, as he “just can’t be alone”.
The movie star and his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, split in 2015
Hollywood superstars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have had a relatively pain free divorce so far with the parents-of-three involved in one of showbiz’s most amicable splits. However, things are moving forward and – two months after Ben moved out of the family home – he appears to be dating Saturday Night Live producer, Lindsey Shookus.
Ben and Jen have been slowly separatig for the past two years
Ben and Jen announced their separation two years ago, in 2015, but have remained on good terms as they continue to parent their three children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, Samuel, 5.
The actress sets the record straight regarding her split from Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Garner wants the world to know that the latest front page article regarding the end of her marriage with Ben Affleck has nothing to do with her. She's happy, and doesn't need her family receiving false information about what is and isn't happening in her life right now.

After discovering a front page story on People magazine entitled 'Jennifer Garner: Life After Heartbreak', she insists that she did NOT A) pose for the photos in the magazine or B) authorise any of the comments made within the story regarding her separation fron Ben Affleck.
Ben and Jen are giving it another go, with People reporting that the A-list couple have called off their divorce.
The couple, who have been married for nearly 12 years and have three children together (Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5), split back in June 2015, just a day after their tenth wedding anniversary, after it was widely reported that Affleck had had a relationship with the children’s nanny.
However, they have always been adamant that living arrangements would be focussed around the needs of their kids – with Affleck for a while said to have been living on the same property as Garner even after the separation.

For those living in the Western hemisphere, summer is drawing to a close. Unfortunately, this summer has been filled with news of celebrity divorces and separation rumours concerning some of the most beloved stars on the planet. In case you’ve missed any – let’s face it, there’s been a lot to keep up with – here’s a recap.
Sources told People magazine that the recent allegations around Affleck's love life may be affecting Garner.
Ever since they announced their divorce back at the end of June this year, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been spotted together in public putting up a united front for the sake of their three children. They have kept their wedding rings on during these family outings and have even been living on the same property together, albeit apparently in different buildings.
However, a source close to the family has told People magazine on Thursday (August 27th) that Garner is now having second thoughts about their living arrangements. “Jen will always make sure that Ben spends as much time with the kids as he wants, but she is rethinking their living situation. She can't stand the situation Ben has put her and the kids in.”
