It's been almost nine months since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner called it quits on their marriage, and the couple still hasn't followed through on filing for divorce.
But apparently that does not mean they're thinking about giving the relationship another chance.
The breakup seems to actually be getting uglier as time goes by, thanks in part to Garner's recent comments in Vanity Fair that seemed to place the blame squarely on Ben's shoulders.
Now, insiders are saying that Affleck is having a hard time readjusting to life as a single man, while Garner is "flourishing" and excitedly moving forward.
“She’s got some strong people in her life who aren’t letting him walk all over her anymore, and they convinced her to put herself first for a change,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
The source says Affleck was hurt by Garner's public comments about his affair with Christine Ouzounian, but there's little he can do about it.
“Ben did everything to stop that piece from coming out,” says the insider. “He has to suck it up because Jen could destroy him at the drop of a hat if she wanted to.”
Jennifer Garner, Superman...is it just us, or does Ben seem to be spending a lot of time butting heads with people who could easily destroy him?
