Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner Divorcing After 10 Years of Marriage

It’s a sad day for Hollywood royalty: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are splitting up after a decade of marriage.

The couple confirmed the end of their marriage with a statement on Tuesday, just a day after celebrating their 10th anniversary.

“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said in a joint statement. “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.”

The two have three children together: Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. Affleck and Garner starting dating in 2004 after working together on two films, 2001’s “Pearl Harbor” and 2003’s “Daredevil,” and tied the knot in 2005.

The couple has been the subject of much speculation in recent years. While accepting his best picture Oscar for “Argo” in 2013, Affleck alluded to tension.

“I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases,” he said to Garner, who was sitting in the audience. “It’s good. It is work but the best kind of work and there’s no one I’d rather work with.”

The actor, however, slammed down rumors in an interview with Details last year, saying of reports, “See, that’s tabloid s–t. That’s all bulls–t.”

People magazine first reported the news.
