The separation of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner was one Hollywood split that hit us all pretty hard, because we never saw it coming.
While they split a while back, we didn’t realise just how long ago that was, because news has just come out that they have settled their divorce three years after calling it quits.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge had warned the couple that their settlement may be dismissed as they were taking so long.
Now, according to TMZ, they have reached a property settlement and agreed to joint custody of their children, Seraphina, Samuel, and Violet.
A close friend of the duo recently opened up about Ben’s struggles and how Jennifer had been trying to help him through it, saying:
“It was very hard for her to break up with Ben, but she knew he wasn’t getting better and that it was time for her to step aside. She was trying to stay as close to him as possible so that he would stay on the right path, but ultimately it just wasn’t possible. She knew she had to let him hit bottom … All she wanted was for him to be happy and healthy. It was a difficult choice but the right one.”
This announcement has come after the recent entering of Ben into a rehab facility, upon Jennifer’s urging that he seek help.
