Despite them not being together anymore, Jennifer Garner continues to be there for the father of her children. The actress made sure to stop by the rehab center for a visit only two days after Ben Affleck checked in.
As fans may be aware, it was Garner who convinced her ex to get help for his alcohol addiction and even drove him to the center herself.
According to a report by X17, Ben is currently going through a rough detox period and Jennifer wants to make sure he knows she supports him wholeheartedly.
‘She wants to support Ben — he’s the father of their kids, and no matter how upsetting his actions are, she’s always going to stick by him,’ one insider shared with the outlet.
They went on to say that: ‘Ben is on the fence about staying; Jen wants to continue to remind him why he needs help. It’s all about the kids — he’ll never get to see them unless he stays straight.’
The two actors share three kids together, and Jennifer wants to make sure her offspring’s father is healthy and completely present in their lives.
HollywoodLife reported that Ben was not willing to go to rehab at first as he was having a lot of fun partying and boozing with his Playboy Playmate girlfriend Shauna Sexton, 22.
But out of respect for the mother of his kids, Affleck decided to go back and get help.
‘He was forced to go, he doesn’t feel like he has to go. He is doing it because he respects Jen’s wishes,’ the insider explained to the site.
This is the third time Ben Affleck checks into rehab due to his alcohol abuse problems.
