Ben Affleck was recently linked to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner and her boyfriend, John Miller. A tabloid claimed that the actor is learning how to be a good parent with the help of Miller.

The tabloid alleged that Affleck and Garner have been successfully co-parenting their three children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, because they’ve been receiving guidance from Miller. The CEO also has two children with his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell.

An unnamed source told the tabloid that Affleck and Garner are finally playing happy family and that this time around, the former couple is no longer acting. Affleck and Garner were married for 10 years before they announced their separation in 2015. Their divorce was finalized last year.

“Jen having a boyfriend has been the best thing to happen to Ben and Jen in a while,” the unnamed source allegedly said. “Ben is showing that he can be a better person than he was. He is taking over school activities for the kids and they are co-parenting in a way that it’s never been before,” the insider added.

But according to rumor-debunking site Gossip Cop, the claims of the tabloid are absurd. This is because Affleck and Garner have been co-parenting their kids since their separation four years ago. During their separate interviews, the exes have also praised each other for being a good parent to their three children.

As such, the tabloid’s claim that Garner and Affleck are finally playing like they’re a happy family cannot be correct. They have not stopped being a family even after their divorce.

Gossip Cop also reached out to Affleck’s rep, who informed them that the claims of the tabloid are ridiculous. Affleck didn’t learn how to become a better dad by following Miller’s footsteps. The idea is reportedly unfounded and is insulting for the actor.

The same tabloid has been running fake stories about Affleck and Garner for years. Last year, it also claimed that Affleck was planning a shotgun wedding with Lindsay Shookus. At that time, the producer was also rumored to be expecting a baby with the actor.
