Ben Affleck & Jen Garner
After 10 years of marriage and 3 children, Hollywood couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that they are divorcing.

In a statement released to the media, they ask for privacy as they go through this new chapter in their lives.

“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. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”

For months, it was widely reported that the couple are calling it quits but there was no official statement refuting the reports.

They are parents to daughters Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3.

    Lover her or hate her…you got to admit that Wendy Williams is the queen of talkshows. She called this Ben and Jennifer divorce 6 months ago ..and kaboom it’s here. Same way she has been calling the Bruce Jenner transition for at least 2 years and now we have cait. All hail queen Wendy…how you doing?

    I’m really starting to believe all these gossip websites.
    The dog never goes too far from the owners house.
    Their rumor ends up being true.

    Wow!! Looks like Brad and Angelina are now the gold standard in Hollywood Relationship longevity, ironic considering their beginnings.

      Nooo! Please don’t jinx their relationship by saying this o. Lol. Just when you think they are in it for the long haul, you read releases like this one up here. Really unfortunate. Divorce is never easy no matter how “amicable” it is portrayed.

      Not really even though for Hollywood they are considered married for eternity, the vanguard would be the likes of Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn, Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson, Denzel and Paula Washington (they just celebrated 32 years of marriage), Samuel L Jackson & LaTanya Richardson to name a few.

    Why do I feel he got bored or no longer found her intriguing? She seemed like a dutiful wife and doting mother. Her career has completely gone downhill. Ben Affleck has been rising and rising. I wouldn’t be surprised if we suddenly hear he’s dating an a-lister.

    Hian? Didn’t see this one coming atall… how sad. Divorce is always a difficult process regardless of who’s involved. It must be really difficult to get to that point of saying : this far and no further. I pray they find peace

    He never got over Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer Lopez even admitted that he was the toughest to get over. This life, the heart wants what the heart wants.

    This really made me sad, I never care too much for Hollywood matches but somehow these two made me believe in all things good and normal. Alas, it has crumbled again! I’m sad still. Hope their kids are okay.

    at this point, I’ll just have to say Congratulations.
    I’ll greet the news with almost as much welcoming and hopefulness as say, a new film collabo or something – http://www.bellanaija.com/2015/06/30/chiwetel-ejiofor-stars-alongside-julia-roberts-nicole-kidman-in-secret-in-their-eyes-trailer/ seems exciting Julia Roberts/Nicole Kidman/Chiwetel Ejiofor. nice.

    hey, i like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. they’re cool. they know that. they can afford a few chapters in life, and i wish them well. actually i wish them more excitement. lool.
