Another Hollywood couple bites the dust!

Yesterday, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they are divorcing after 10 years of marriage and the news immediately caused a media frenzy!

The couple released a joint statement saying, “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.”

While fans continue to mourn the loss of Hollywood’s sweethearts, more information is coming to light about what caused the actors to call it quits.

A source connected with Garner claims that Ben is to blame for the demise, saying the “Gone Girl” actor’s drinking and gambling habits have finally taken a toll on his wife.

While Affleck and Garner have yet to comment on these speculations, one thing is certain, the parents of 3 are committed to co-parenting and doing what’s best for Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.

A source explained, “They don’t want this to be War of the Roses.  They want it to be simple and this takes the drama out of it.  It is important for them to keep this nice and efficient for the sake of their family.”

Apparently the Hollywood power couple even plans to live on the same property for the sake of their kids!  The same source went on to say that Ben and Jen will now be living in separate houses on their Brentwood, California property.

With the exes living on the same property, will it be possible to lead separate lives?
