Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner, an exclusive US magazine report said, and insider sources said the marriage has been barely surviving for years.

The two actors announced on June 30, just after their 10-year anniversary, that they would split. Fan speculation as to why the much-loved couple was divorcing included allegations that Affleck had cheated, which he has denied.

 


But “multiple” sources told US magazine the marriage failed because of Affleck’s drinking, gambling, and affairs.

One source said Garner confided in friends that Affleck admitted to cheating, but even though they parted for a short time, she took him back, US said. An Affleck friend, though, said the actor never cheated on his wife.

But one thing was clear in talking to sources, US magazine reported, and that was that the couple had been struggling in their marriage for quite some time. The pair have three children, Violent, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

“She tried to leave him a few times, but he would beg her to stay,” one source told US.

Another source agreed. “She always fought against the urge to throw her hands up in the air and walk away,” he or she told US. "They’ve been on the brink of splitting up many times before, but it’s Jennifer’s worst nightmare for their children. Her biggest desire has always been to keep the family together.”

The couple announced their impending divorce to People magazine in June, saying in a statement, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. "

In the comments on the US magazine article, many pointed out that Garner filed just after their 10-year anniversary. Under California law, according to one poster, that means she can seek child and spousal support. “Now if that doesn't sound like a scorned woman with a plan I don't know what does,” one person wrote.
