Jennifer Garner “Annoyed” by Ben Affleck Groping Claims
When people started talking about Ben Affleck’s alleged groping as this whole Harvey Weinstein debacle has unfolded, we couldn’t help but think about Jennifer Garner. Surely, this must affect her on some level. According to sources, it really has her feeling “very annoyed.”
It was bad enough that Garner and the children she shares with Affleck – Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel – had to endure a nasty divorce complete with rumors of him cheating with the nanny (and pictures of them together outside his house!).
It was bad enough that he so quickly moved on with Saturday Night Live producer, Lindsay Shookus, with whom he is reported to have been having an affair.
Now, Garner and the kids have to watch while women come forward and share personal stories about his misconduct. First, Hilarie Burton discussed a 2003 incident when he groped her breast during an appearance on MTV’s TRL. If you thought Affleck might ignore or deny this you’d be wrong. Instead, he tweeted, “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize.”
Meanwhile, makeup artist Annamarie Tendler, wife of comedian, John Mulaney, tweeted, “I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my a– at a Golden Globes party in 2014.” So far, Affleck hasn’t said anything about the alleged incident.
So how’s Garner doing in the middle of all of this?
A source claims that she “is very annoyed because it just means more attention on her and the kids as a result of Ben’s actions. She tries to shield them from any and all publicity and scrutiny. She’s taking her kids to school and to all of their activities. As far as they know nothing has changed and all is well. That is always her goal but she’s been pretty frustrated with him.”
