I was watching Wendy Williams last week and that's when I first heard the rumors about them possibly getting a divorce. She also reported that on the exact day of their 10th anniversary, there were moving vans at their home.  


What a way to spend your anniversary!!!!!!!!Cat Sad

I've always felt like he wasn't as into the marriage as she was.  He just seems odd to me and aloof.

I hate to hear this since it seemed he have found such peace with his own family.  I always thought they were on the road to a political career for him.  Still can but much harder to achieve with divorce and dirt in your background.

 

I read a book earlier this year called Molly's Game, by Molly Bloom it was a true story where she put together high stake poker games in NY City and LA and she named Ben through out the book as one of the regular players.  Molly ended up going to prison for the games, but the money she made was amazing.

I believe it wasTMZ that had an article earlier today that Ben makes a ton of money gambling (not that this is his main sorce of income but at least he is not gambling his regular earnings away).

 

I think he is blessed with a very analytical brain and is able to count cards, etc. and consequently has been banned by more than a few resorts and casinos.

Sorry, but sometimes divorce is really the SMARTEST decision .....  if the parents have exhausted all possibilities for problem solving, then the best decision for the kids can be to part amicably.    

 

NO kid deserves to live in a war zone.

I guess true love is hard to find. In Hollywood they just put on a good act to make everthing look normal. In every day life some of us do the same thing.

 

 

A LOT of people who stay married aren't necessarily happy ....  they just don't have the courage or self-esteem to end a bad relationship ....  so, they stay together and pretend to be happy to the outside world.

 

Personally, I really don't find anything admirable about doing that.

Well said Tinkrbll44! I completely agree!! I don't find it admirable at all, but I greatly admire those who do have enough self-esteem and courage to leave.

very old news


I don't know if it qualifies as 'old' but the rumors started about 6 months ago and they kept denying it.

True.  I like her a heck of a lot better than I like him (which is not at all).  I happen to like his business partner very much (Matt Damon).  Obviously, they are completely different in their personal lives.  Matt probably doesn't think much of him these days as we hardly see them together anymore.  He let "Hollywood" get to him . . . Matt didn't.

 

I hope Jennifer goes on with her life without him.  Fortunately, she has her own career.

I don't blame her.

I saw tonight that he will be living in a home on their property and will co-parent.
