I could not have guessed that when Jennifer Garner finally signed her name on her divorce papers from Ben Affleck, that it would only be a matter of time before I read the headline: “Jennifer Garner dating tech CEO.” I was picturing something more Hallmark channel wholesome, like Jennifer hooking up with a dog walker or an ice cream parlor owner. But she picked a tech CEO, and we’ve got an update on things.
The only problem is, those sources probably should have gotten together and agreed on one story, because there are conflicting reports. One source tells UsWeekly that after about six months of dating, Jennifer is “head over heels” in love with John Miller, the CEO and chairman of Cali Group. Jen and Ben Affleck were seen hanging out together in a private box at Dodgers Stadium for game four of the World Series on Saturday. What we allegedly didn’t see was Jennifer meeting up with John later that night. So I guess you could say Jen saw two kinds of balls that day.
The source adds that things have gotten “very serious” between the two. But a source who spoke with People says that Jennifer enjoys John’s company, but that “it’s not that serious.” John hasn’t yet met Jennifer’s three kids that she shares with Ben. John also has children from a previous marriage (he’s still technically married). People’s source makes it seem as though they won’t likely be Brady Bunch-ing any time soon.
“They both have separate families that they are focused on. They see each other when they can.”
The source adds that moving on from her divorce is a “natural step,” and that she seems “excited” about the future. A future that might involve more John Miller or less, depending on who you ask. I want to believe more, if only because I like picturing Jennifer throwing her hands over her mouth to shield a loud gasp as John the Tech CEO drops to one knee and asks: “Would you like to upgrade your running system to MY_WIFE 2.0?”
