Wait a sec, are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck back together?! That’s a definite no, but they did attend Game 4 of the World Series together. The exes were photographed near each other in a suite for the nail-biter between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox in LA on Saturday, Oct. 27 — days after news broke that the Peppermint actress has a new boyfriend.
Baseball has a special place in the former couple’s hearts, though. Back in 2004, Ben and Jen made their public debut as a couple while watching the Red Sox play in the 2004 World Series, which the team ended up winning — giving the Red Sox their first championship since 1918. And although the pair is still seemingly on good terms for the sake of their kids Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, Samuel, 6, they’ve each moved on romantically.
On Oct. 24, multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly that Jen is dating businessman John Miller. “They’ve been together six months — and it’s getting pretty serious,” one insider told the outlet, while another added, “Jen brings out the best in John, and he is the happiest he has probably ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship.” Er, except for the fact that he’s still married and is reportedly “controlling and punishing,” according to his ex…
Meanwhile, Ben has been dating much-younger model Shauna Sexton. Despite rumors the duo recently split, she recently told In Touch that those reports are simply “not accurate.”
Unfortunately, Jen is concerned the 22-year-old may be too much of a partier for Ben — who recently left rehab for the third time. “She told him to dump Shauna or else,” a separate insider previously told Life & Style, adding that Shauna recently listed “whiskey all day” as her favorite drink. “It isn’t healthy.”
Yet despite it all, a friend of Ben’s recently revealed to People that he supports his ex. “Ben will always want the best for Jen,” they told the outlet. “They continue to have a really strong relationship and both work very hard to make everything easy for the kids. She has always been supportive of him.”
