Amid rumors about reconciliation between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, a new report said that the couple is back together on the 43-year-old actress' terms. According to the National Enquirer, Affleck fears that Garner will leak his "dirty" secrets.
"Ben would rather be anywhere than back with her right now,” a source told National Enquirer, adding that he is with Garner because he “fears she’ll air even more of his dirty laundry.” According to the source, Garner is still furious with Affleck for cheating on her.
“Jen’s got a lot more on him that he doesn’t want to trot out in public. It’s like he’s being held hostage,” the source added.
However, Gossip Cop debunked the report, saying Affleck is not “being held hostage” by Garner.
Over the last few weeks, rumors surfaced that Affleck and Garner are back together and are planning to call off their divorce.
Garner and Affleck announced last year they will end their 10-year marriage but did not reveal a specific reason behind the split. Following the announcement, the couple was surrounded with several cheating rumors.
"Their friends are expecting an announcement very soon that Jen is pregnant,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “Given Jen’s age, she’d want to be cautious about saying anything too early. But Ben’s been very attentive to Jen, making sure she’s taking it easy. He’s even bringing her breakfast in bed. Jen has been absolutely glowing!”
Most recently, Affleck and Garner were spotted spending family time along with their children — Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4 — in Paris.
