UNCOMFORTABLE NEW BOYFRIEND

With Affleck going candid in his recent interviews, Garner's boyfriend, John Miller, is feeling uncomfortable, as reported by Us Weekly. Miller was worried that Affleck's interviews might put pressure on Garner.

Miller and Garner have been dating for two years. He is also supportive of Garner co-parenting her children with Affleck.

The couple announced their decision to divorce a day after they celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in 2015.

PAST RELATIONSHIP

Miller was also emphatic about Affleck's situation. Sources, however, said that Miller believed that the actor would remarry Garner.

Affleck and Garner married in 2005, but their relationship fell through, following the actor's alleged affair with a nanny.

The acclaimed actress, however, denied the said affair by her husband. The separation ended with a divorce in 2018.
