A new National Enquirer report recounts the strained vacation of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner that they had recently. After the photos and videos of exes fighting over Thanksgiving go viral, more and more people are wondering how Ben and Jen are co-parents and what their relationship really looks like. It has always seemed to many people that Jennifer was the strongest, doing her best to keep the family together, while Ben Affleck had alcohol problems. Now the National Enquirer reports that Jennifer Garner is fed up and that their co-parenting suffers from Ben’s behavior.
The Enquirer reports that Ben and Jen are no longer ex-friends, but are at war with each other. The magazine reported that the source said the following.
“They went from best friend to ex bitter almost overnight. Ben got it with Jen’s attitude, when she’s sick of dying for breaking her promises and living like an irresponsible college jock. They entered a nasty moment while they were out and things just spiraled from there.

There is no doubt that Ben and Jennifer did an admirable job with their separation. They have often been seen in town together, going to their children’s events together, but the insider said something to the National Enquirer which, if true, would be very disturbing.
According to the report, Ben used the children and even herself to play “happy families” after a public fight. The report says that after their Thanksgiving fight, Ben was then photographed with Samuel on his shoulders as they did their family Christmas shopping.
The report infers that Ben used the family as positive publicity after the fight. The report also says that after Ben Affleck triggered rumors of a relapse, after apparently drinking while stumbling on Halloween, he was photographed with his family the next day.
At this point, there is nothing to confirm whether Ben Affleck is using his family for good publicity and since the source of the article is not identified, there is no way to know for sure.
