I understand this might be a strange blind item to reveal considering Garner and Affleck recently announced their intention to formally divorce, but the A list couple, who originally split in June 2015, reconciled for a period until ending their relationship for a final time in early 2017.
In mid 2016, TMZ reported all signs were pointing to a reconciliation and Garner even admitted in an interview at the time that their divorce was “a grey area.”
Our source insists the couple were content and reconciled until late 2016 / early 2017 when Affleck’s drinking became a problem and Garner finally decided to cut the tether.
