How is Blake Lively connected to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's rumored looming divorce?
Speculations about the Hollywood couple's alleged crumbling marriage has been circulating for weeks now and according to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Blake Lively may have something to do with it, indirectly.
The former "Gossip Girl" star has starred with Ben Affleck in the 2010 movie "The Town" where the two had a steamy sex scene. National Enquirer revealed that "Jen and Blake developed a deep bond while filming and Ben couldn't wait to get her in the sack!"
The sex scenes between Blake Lively and her husband have reportedly haunted Jennifer Garner all these years, adding up to the actor's purported drinking and gambling problems as well as cheating scandals. The issues between the couple reportedly led to a looming divorce.
But Blake Lively isn't the only actress Jennifer Garner is allegedly worried about. The "Alias" star is also concerned about Ben Affleck and his "Gone Girl" co-star Emily Ratajkowski.
"Jen was so worried about Ben and Emily that she asked her pal Neil Patrick Harris to keep an eye on them while on set," according to National Enquirer.
Amid divorce rumors, Hollywood Life says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have purportedly sought help from a marriage counselor to save their marriage. However, the couple may not be resolving their issues head on as Ben reportedly resorts to staying at LA's Bel-Air hotel whenever he and his wife are fighting.
"[Ben and Jen] have had problems from the very beginning," a source reportedly told Us Weekly. "He stays there whenever he and Jen are having problems ... There's no need to sugarcoat it. Ben is drinking again."
Fans could only hope that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner work out their differences and that their marriage doesn't end up in divorce especially since they have three kids together.
