Jennifer Garner has her mind set on divorcing Ben Affleck... but why is Affleck going to extreme measures in order to keep her by his side?
New details have emerged and it sure as hell sounds like Ben is fearing for his bank balance in case Garner leaves him with nothing.
“Ben can’t afford to divorce,” an insider revealed to Radar Online.
“Now that Jen’s deal is on the table, he’s beginning to realize she’s going to leave him flat broke and there’s nothing he can do about it," continued the insider.
It's perfectly obvious that Ben wants to keep Jen as his wife, but now it's becoming increasingly obvious that he has an ulterior motive.
“The only solution he’s got to keeping his fortune is to patch things up with her,” explained the insider.
“But it’s not solely about cash - he does love their family and he and Jen do genuinely care for each other.”
Here's a quick refresher on this one: Last year, Jennifer and Ben announced they were splitting, just one day after their 10-year anniversary.
There were numerous conflicting reports that said Ben was cheating with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian, but Jennifer put these rumors to bed when she declared that they had actually broken up months before they announced they were divorcing.
Moreover, Jen had never heard any of the rumors about the nanny bedding Ben until months after their split.
It sure sounds like the the whole thing was made up by the Internet, right?!
The insider also revealed that Garner is making things difficult for Ben.
If Ben is really worth that amount, Jennifer must have a decent amount of money from her own income.
She was the star of ABC's Alias and has had a successful movie career, so there's that.
If this is the route Ben is taking things, Jennifer would be wise to get out while she still can and get what she deserves from him.
They should be together for the right reasons, not the wrong ones.
