A new report by the National Enquirer is dishing on Ben Affleck’s and Jennifer Garner’s tense holidays that they’ve been having lately. After photos and videos of the exes having an argument over the Thanksgiving holiday went viral, more people are asking questions about how Ben and Jen co-parent and what their relationship is really like. It has always seemed to many people that Jennifer has been the strong one, doing her best to keep the family together, while Ben Affleck has struggled with alcohol. Now, the National Enquirer is reporting that Jennifer Garner has had enough and their co-parenting is suffering due to Ben’s behavior.
The Enquirer reports that Ben and Jen are no longer friendly exes, but are at war with each other. The magazine reported the source as stating the following.
“They went from being best of friends to bitter exes almost overnight. Ben’s had it with Jen’s attitude, while she’s sick to death of him failing to keep his promises and living like an irresponsible college jock. They got into a nasty spat while they were out and things just spiraled from there.

There’s no doubt that Ben and Jennifer have done an admirable job with their split. They have frequently been seen around town together, go to their children’s events together, but the insider has stated something to the National Enquirer that, if true, would be greatly disturbing.
According to the report, Ben has used the kids and even her to play “happy families” after they have a public fight. The report said that after their Thanksgiving fight, Ben was later photographed with Samuel on his shoulders while they were Christmas shopping as a family.
The report infers that Ben was using the family as positive publicity after the fight. The report also says that after Ben Affleck sparked rumors of relapse, after seemingly drunk when stumbling on Halloween, he was photographed with his family the following day.
At this point, there is nothing to confirm whether Ben Affleck is using his family for good publicity and as the article’s source remains unidentified, there’s no way to know for sure.
