Ben Affleck Denies Rumours That Split From Jennifer Garner Was Because Of Co-star Margot Robbie

Fans of ‘Bennifer’ were left heartbroken earlier this month when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner called time on their 10 year marriage.

And in the days that followed, the rumour mill went into overdrive.

Ben Affleck has worked with many absolutely gorgeous women throughout his career, but of course the fact that he just so happened to be starring in a film alongside the stunning Margot Robbie at around the same time as he and Jennifer Garner announced their split lead to some speculation that Margot was the reason. The latest claims to plague the 42-year-old actor are reports that he’s ‘developed serious feelings’ for his Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie.

Unsurprisingly, Ben’s camp has wasted no time in denying the vicious rumour, clearing Margot’s name of any wrongdoing as she is still very happy with her own long term boyfriend, Tom Ackerley. A source told Daily Mail Australia that the speculation is “simply not true.” The source went on to reveal that Ben has ‘barely spent any time with Margot’ while filming the Warner Brothers project in Toronto, Canada.

Woman’s Day claimed that Margot caught Ben’s eye on the set of their new film and had ‘developed serious feelings’ for the 25-year-old. A source falsely told the publication that: ‘Ben has had the hots for Margot ever since he saw her in The Wolf Of Wall Street.’

Ben and Jen, who married on June 29, 2005, confirmed they were divorcing to DailyMail.com on Tuesday, just a day after their 10th wedding anniversary. The announcement comes after months of rumours about the couple, who share three children together; Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.

In a joint statement, the couple said: ‘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.’

After the news went public, Ben and Jennifer took their children to the Bahamas to shield them from the spotlight.

Meanwhile, Margot has been spotted out and about with her British beau, Tom Ackerley. Proving that her relationship with her boyfriend of more than a year is rock solid, the pair have been seen wearing matching gold bands on their wedding ring fingers.

Margot is set to play Harley Quinn, the female villain and girlfriend of Jared Leto’s Joker in the film, Suicide Squad, which has a 2016 release date.016137-88add4ea-f245-11e4-9134-cf9443e7fd03

Affleck is set to don black armour as Batman. The Warner Bros project is sure to get plenty of hype with a star studded cast which also includes Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne.

      LOL. You know Hollywood. If she’s blonde and a bombshell, she must be screwing her co-star.
