AceShowbiz - Is Jennifer Garner avoiding an awkward run-in with her ex-husband Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez at their extravaganza Georgia wedding? The "13 Going on 30" star declined the wedding invitation despite her kids, whom she shares with the "Deep Water" actor, being there.
On Friday, August 19, a source spilled to HollywoodLife.com about the real reasons why "The Adam Project" star won't be attending the lavish wedding. "Jennifer Garner is hard at work on a project in Texas and won't be attending the wedding celebration, but she's been totally supportive of her kids being there and is really positive in general about the whole thing," the insider detailed, referencing Jen and Ben's kids, Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13, and Sam, 11.
"There is nothing more important to her than her kids' happiness," the so-called insider explained. "So, the fact that they feel welcomed and at ease and have bonded with J.Lo and her kids is just the best thing she could ask for."
A separate source further shared that Jen has already "congratulated" the couple on their wedding plans as she won't attend because of work. "Ben will always consider Jennifer family so of course he extended an invitation," the source maintained.
"Plus, Jennifer and [J.Lo] have become closer so J.Lo was fully supportive of inviting the mother of his kids," so said the informant. "Jennifer knows they adore J.Lo and she's fully on board with them getting close with their new stepmom. Jennifer has wished them all the best and knows it will be a beautiful event."
The wedding will be held at Ben's home in the coastal town of Riceboro, Georgia on the weekend. According to reports, the main ceremony is on Saturday and a family barbecue is scheduled for Sunday.
There seems to be drama at the wedding site already. On Friday, there were lights flashing and sirens blaring near the venue. A source told Daily Mail that Ben's mom Christopher Anne Boldt was injured. She was rushed to St. Joseph Candler children's hospital.
According to the news outlet, Christopher took a tumble at Ben's house. She reportedly cut her leg following the incident. The "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" star later called the ambulance. He and the "Marry Me" star, who got hitched in Las Vegas last month, also went to the hospital to accompany his mom.
