It feels like it’s been a while since we’ve talked about Jennifer Garner’s love life. But In Touch is reporting that she’s very much single right now. And TMZ is dog-piling onto that news with some new pictures of Jen hanging out on a beach with her former Alias co-star Bradley Cooper.
For the past two years, Jennifer Garner was dating John Miller, a tech CEO who made burger-flipping robots for the California burger chain, CaliBurger. Jennifer, who had just finalized her divorce from Ben Affleck, was reportedly taking things slow with Burger Johnny, and that she wasn’t rushing to get married again. But we did hear that John had been her “rock” during Ben’s public relapse last year. Well, at some point Jen must have slipped a piece of paper on top of that rock that read, “I’m done,” because she’s cut her rock out of her life for the time being (welcome to my clumsy rock-paper-scissors joke).
They “are no longer together,” a source exclusively tells In Touch. “They split up before L.A. went into lockdown. Jen and John remain on friendly terms so there’s a possibility that they could rekindle their relationship in the future, but right now it’s over.”
A source spoke to In Touch back in March, about a week after the coronavirus lockdown started, and said that Jen and John were doing “great,” and that things worked out well for them because he wasn’t into the whole Hollywood thing. The source also said that John was very independent and took his co-parenting situation very seriously (he shares two kids with his ex-wife), and that seeing very little of each other in quarantine “works for them.” Apparently not seeing each other worked so well, they decided to make it permanent.
And if Jen needs a shoulder to cry on, Bradley Cooper’s got a gym-jacked shoulder with her name on it. TMZ says that Jen joined Bradley and his 3-year-old daughter Lea de Seine on a beach in Malibu yesterday. TMZ describes Jen and Bradley as looking flirty. But all I see are two people without masks, playing fast and loose with six-foot social distancing rules.

Are Bradley and Jen’s lack of PPE and social distance a clue that they’ve been quarantining together, and this is their subtle way of telling the world that Sydney Bristow and Will Tippin are SD69’ing in real life? If not, then I’m horrified! We’re still in a pandemic! I’m sure I’m not the only one who is wrinkling up their nose at those beach pictures. Ana de Armas probably just elbowed Ben, asking if they should call up his ex-wife and offer up a new couple photography coaching lesson. Lesson one: there’s too much sun at the beach and the squinting doesn’t look like an in-love smile at all. Try a shady tree-lined street close to home.
