High Profile Celebrity Couple Divorce

Celebrity couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that they will be getting a divorce following almost ten years of marriage.

The announcement came following a joint statement on the matter after the mainstream had reported a potential divorce. The couple, who have three children, have confirmed that Affleck will continue to live separately on the same property as Garner for the sake of his children and the family.

According to multiple media sources, the couple is worth at least $150 million and announced their divorce a day after their tenth wedding anniversary.

It has already been announced that they have agreed to share custody of their three children.
