Hollywood power-couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were spotted in their vacation home in the Bahamas earlier this month after announcing they are seeking a divorce.
E! Online reports that the celebrities went to the Bahamas with their three children for a “family trip” even though Affleck and Garner are going through a divorce.
Paparazzi photos show the soon-to-be divorced couple (they have already been separated for 10 months) sitting next to each other on a set of steps. Although they appear to be cordial with each other, Affleck and Garner also look stressed out during what looks an intimate discussion. Affleck still has his wedding ring on but Garner noticeably does not.
A source told People that the A-listers “seemed to be cordial to each other. They would look at each other and speak and then both look away in silence.”
“A lot of the time, they seemed to just stare off into space,” the spectator added.
The family has been going to this vacation home (which they refer to as a “private and special location”) for years, although this time around their time there was brief. On July 3rd, Affleck left to attend San Diego’s Comic-Con to promote his upcoming movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Garner left on July 5th to film Miracles From Heaven in Atlanta.
Media outlets recently found out that Affleck is living in a separate guesthouse on Garner’s Atlanta property.
In a joint statement, the couple claim to be moving “forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children.”
Celebrity marriage experts believe that their divorce is “not contentious” and that they simply want what is best for their children.
Married in 2005, the couple have actually been separated since last year.
