Jennifer Garner will not be present at the wedding of her ex Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Their children will be part of the party.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are set to tie the knot this weekend during three days of festivities. If we do not know for the moment the complete list of guests who will be present in the property of the actor in Georgia, where the ceremony will be held, his ex-wife Jennifer Garner should be absent. Unlike Ben Affleck’s best friend Matt Damon, who made the trip with his wife, the former “Alias” star won’t be there.
A source explained to the site Hollywood Life that the latter has indeed been invited but is currently on the set of a film in Texas. On the other hand, the three children of the former couple – Violet, 16 years old, Seraphina, 13 years old, and Samuel, 10 years old – have been invited and should occupy a place of choice during this romantic weekend. The same source clarified that their mother “totally supports the presence of her children and reacts very well about all this”. “There is nothing more important to her than seeing her children happy. Knowing that they felt welcome and comfortable with J-Lo and her own children is the only thing she could hope for. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck recently visited Paris as a family and were accompanied by their children. The singer had thus made the trip with her twins Max and Emme, aged 14, born of her marriage to Marc Anthony. Only young Samuel was absent.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, still friends
Jennifer Garner never seemed to show any resentment towards the couple formed by her ex-husband and the star. In July 2021, as they grew closer, a source told E! , that Jennifer Garner had nothing to say about this resurgent relationship between those who were engaged in the early 2000s. “She is just trying to live her life and raise her children. The last thing she wants is to have to deal with Ben’s love life. She is focused on her children and their happiness,” we said. The actress and her former husband remained friends after their divorce. In particular, she was present during his difficult times, accompanying him herself to rehab.
