The past year has seen more celebrity divorce announcements than we can count – Chris Pratt and Anna Faris, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, to name just a few.
But one that hit us all the hardest was Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who have only just finalised their divorce, separating three years ago after a 10 year marriage.
The couple have remained friends since their amicable split, co-parenting their three children and even going on holiday together to keep things normal for their family. In fact, Jennifer Garner made news earlier this year as she staged an ‘intervention’ for her estranged husband and checked him into rehab, driving him to the treatment centre herself.
‘The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others,’ Ben Affleck wrote in a statement. ‘Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family.’
But while the attention has been on Ben, some have voiced their concerns over Jen and the lack of news that has come out about her.
Well, that seems to be no more, as it has been revealed why we haven’t seen so much of Jennifer Garner - she’s in a relationship.
Yes, really. Jen has a new boyfriend who she's reportedly been with for six months, and he’s a big time CEO.
The new man in her life? 40-year-old John Miller.
But who is John Miller?
John is the CEO and chairman of Cali Group. And while he’s a high-flying business man, he’s also said to be a family man, having met Jennifer Garner’s children and reportedly also having a daughter named Violet! Two daughters named Violet - that’s bound to get confusing!
And if that wasn’t enough similarities, John is also in the process of filing for divorce from his wife of nine years, who he split from in 2014.
We’re feeling good about this!
Huge congratulations to Jen and John!
