The break-up of the lovely couple (and family) was something we didn’t see coming two years ago.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have three lovely children and that family seemed happy and very private and balanced – specially when you compare them to other celebrity couples…
Jennifer was always besides Ben and he was too.
That is why we have learned only a little time ago something that the couple had hid from the public (and had all the potential of being the reason for their separation).
Ben Affleck spoke publicly and openly about his recent stint in a rehab facility.
Affleck was caught by alcohol and he could not just stop on his own…
The actor sought help for alcohol addiction back in 2001 but no one would guess he could fall again.
But now he has come out of a rehab facility clinic and he publicly addressed that tormented period of his life:
Affleck has been separated from Jennifer Garner since 2015 but they never divorced.
In this public statement, Ben thanked Jennifer, his “co-parent” for standing by him
“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do”
In recent statements, his sober coach talked about the real reasons for wanting help – it seems Ben Affleck was too worried about his partner and family and wanted to better his companionship.
Ben Affleck has been fighting this nasty addiction from a young age.
And it seems to have something to do with his family history – his father was an alcoholic and his mother had to leave him in order to keep her children safe.
At a young 12 years of age, Ben Affleck was removed from his father due to his alcoholism but it seems there must be a genetic factor in addiction here…
We hope this one is for good and maybe, just maybe, it will help the couple in raising their kids together again…
