There’s no word if they took Hozier along.
Ben Affleck has had a turbulent few months battling his addiction to booze, and Jennifer Garner has earned a spot in the ex-wife Hall of Fame for putting up with it and making sure he’s in tip-top shape for their kids. Jen already drove Ben to rehab, and this weekend they were spotted coming out of God’s house. No, by God, I don’t mean Cher. This is serious stuff!
Us Weekly says the pair came out together of a Methodist church in Los Angeles Sunday in dark sunglasses while the paps snapped away. My guess is that either Jen and Ben called the paps, or God did, because God just can’t get enough of free publicity. Jen was in a dressy casual black number while Ben looked a tad grizzly with a bomber jacket look that would have definitely caused my mother to hiss, “DOESN’T HE KNOW THIS IS THE LORD’S HOUSE!?” if we were back at the Methodist church down home. Jen already was there for the intervention that caused Ben to go to rehab, but maybe she figured she could use all the help she could get, so she arranged to be in the presence of the Woman Upstairs (again, what Ariana Grande sings is truth!). A source says that Ben seems to be taking shit seriously after having completed the first 30 days in treatment and that “he feels really bad and sorry about doing this because of the kids.”
You might be wondering why Jen is doing all this. They split in 2015, and he was with Lindsay Shookus for about a year until a few days before he went to rehab. The paperwork on the Bennifer 2.0 divorce hasn’t been finalized, and Jen wants to give him time to focus on his sobriety. The last shred of kindness in me thinks that’s really mature. The real me, however, has my jaw dropped and is screaming, “Girl, sign those papers before you and your Capital One cash are on the hook for his Promises bill. That shit costs more than the Four Seasons!”
