AceShowbiz - Is there a chance for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to reconcile? The estranged couple, who announced their separation in 2015, jetted off to the Bahamas for a vacation with their three children two months after filing for divorce.
According to Us Weekly, Jennifer asked Ben to join her and their children after she was invited by software company Fast Enterprises to speak to 160 executives. In addition to her appearance fee, the "13 Going On 30" star allegedly requested a private jet, two adjoining two-bedroom suites and another suite for a five-day stay.
Although this might be a sign that Jennifer and Ben would call off their divorce, a source close to the actress insisted that Jennifer invited her ex-husband because of their children. "Jen feels it is most beneficial for the kids to have their father present," the source told the publication.
Ben also used the vacation as a chance to bond with their kids. "It was a great opportunity to keep the norm going for the kids," a source close to the "Gone Girl" actor shared, before adding, "Jen will always do whatever it takes to provide the best arrangements for them that she can."
Following their divorce, it was reported that Ben was ready to mingle. "Ben has been inviting his friends to dinner parties at his house, with the specific request that they also bring over beautiful single women," an insider revealed. "He's absolutely loving the single life. Don't expect Ben to be going out on the town with dates or doing any partying in public."
He was later believed to be trying to win Jennifer Lopez back. "Seeing Jennifer happy again with someone else has made him realize that he wants her back. Ben's been reaching out to her in hopes that they can reconnect," an insider previously said. "He's been trying to convince Jennifer that Alex Rodriguez is trouble."
