Why haven’t we seen Jennifer Garner’s new boyfriend, did he bail?

L.A. Dance Project Annual Gala 2018
You know how Jennifer Garner introduced her boyfriend a couple of weeks ago on the cover of US Magazine? It’s funny how we haven’t heard another word about him, and how US said they were serious, but People called it casual shortly afterwards. I’m thinking that the rollout was too much for John Miller and that he bailed. That would explain why we haven’t heard anything since. This would also explain why Garner is recounting an anecdote about her skirt getting caught in her underwear at church, causing her to almost flash the congregation. My goodness!

“My skirt got caught in my panties at church a couple of weeks ago and I almost walked into the congregation after going to the restroom with full biscuit showing.

“Luckily I felt a breeze pretty quickly.”

[From People]

You may think this is a bawdy story from Garner, but she’s been known to tell worse stories on late night television. Again, why has it been weeks since we heard about her boyfriend? I’m thinking they either called it off and she doesn’t want to acknowledge that or he told her to stop talking about him to the press. She needs a guy who doesn’t mind being part of her “celebrity mom moving on, still putting kids first” narrative. Barring that, she can keep dropping tidbits about her life and getting headlines for that.

    Yeah something clearly backfired here. I’m getting slight shades of Neri Oxman. Not exactly (I do believe she was dating him) but more like, “ummm, you said what to the media?”. Just a bad PR call basically.

    She’ll be looking for ways to stay in the spotlight. Her movie fizzled. That TV show’s barely made a ripple. Without Affleck screwing up and her riding to the rescue, the pap strolls are going to get pretty dull.

    Wasn’t a real thing in the first place. Faked.

    • rob says:

      Correct. The fact that her PR team ran to all of her favorite outlets with his name before there were even any pics was a dead giveaway. Ben took LS public by taking her out for dinner in London in full view of the paps. That was a real relationship. Garner probably knows this guy in some way and is letting the tabloids think that they are together. He and his businesses are getting some press about it and she thinks she’s getting a pass for moving on. I’ll believe that she’s actually dating (and has moved on from Ben) when there are pics.

    • Other Renee says:

      There was a blind item about someone trotting out a fake boyfriend because she was tired of being labeled as the poor woman still pining for her ex while her ex was constantly in the media with his new girlfriends. I assumed it was Jen.

      • Esmom says:

        I don’t know. She doesn’t seem to be pining for Ben as much as she is propping him up for the sake of their kids.

  3. Ali says:

    Way more interesting for gossip is Shauna Sexton. Who planted the is there/isn’t there a SS/BA sextape story? Bored gossip writers? Not Jen that’s for sure.

    • Mela says:

      Yeah! She has gone silent on social media too this week.

      I believe shauna could have embarrassing videos of Ben, for sure! She was able to record him in Montana and post them to social media without his knowledge so I am
      Positive she recorded him other times especially when he was wasted.

      • greg says:

        Huh? Ben was clearly the photographer in most of the shots that she posted from Montana. He knew she had her camera out, he wasn’t some victim.

      • meme says:

        I don’t think Mela is saying he’s a victim but she is saying its very possible Shauna has damaging photos/videos of him. He was black out betty most of their “relationship” so it would have been even easier to record him in that state.

        As for Montana, she posted a video where she acted like she was taking a photo/video of wildlife and instead she recorded Ben. It was obvious she was surreptitiously recording him in that particular video. I’m sure it wasn’t the first time.

  4. Kristic says:

    I don’t understand how you could flash your biscuit if you’re wearing underwear!

  5. greg says:

    No one believes that she’s moved on. She’s still the same ol’ doormat that she’s been since the aughts. As long as Ben keeps his act together her relevancy sinks like a stone. Who is she if she’s not saving him? Nothing but bad actress who sells her kids’ private lives for press.

  6. hola says:

    Because the guy is still married . So, had to bail a bit from the lightshow.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I tend to think it’s this reason more than anything having to do with Jen’s celebrity.

    • B says:

      Except that he isn’t still married. He and his ex settled their divorce in October. Several tabloid sites have the docs.

    • meme says:

      Maybe his kids got upset with the publicity and he backed out? It’s one thing for mom and dad to break up and deal with that privately but to have it splashed on the front page of tabloids might have been really distressing for his family. I think he might have pulled the plug because it was all too much.

  7. Ashleigh says:

    Her new show is unwatchable and she is terrible in it. Her acting comeback has been a dud. I will say that for all of his many public problems and limited ability, Ben’s acting career is still better than hers by a factor of 10.

  8. w adams says:

    I’m not sure which is more embarrassing: that Jen Garner thought that this almost-flashed-her-”biscuit”-story-at-church-GASP story was actually worth telling, or that People magazine thought it was worth posting. She is the walking, talking definition of Basic. Topic? Fake boyfriend. There is nothing substantial so she can deny it all when people start to get noisy about lack of proof/pics. She’s still waiting for Ben.

    • missreader90 says:

      I have serious second-hand embarrassment for her right now and as a former Alias fan..hurts me to admit..Girl, you’re in Betty Broderick territory right now..PLEASE for the love of GOD, go and get some! A real man this time. Please let Ben be Ben.

      • Corporatestepsister says:

        Missreader, I mentioned how she was slipping into Betty Broderick territory and I got blasted for it. I do think shes’ having some kind of minor breakdown mainly since she’s clearly someone who isn’t moving on. I think she went on a few days and declared that she’s having some great new romance and the guy got creeped out from it and bailed out. So now she’s single fully again.

        I do think at some point she is going to start popping up where she knows Ben is and starts ‘running into’ women that Ben either works with or is seen around with. She won’t let go and this is going to end ugly.

  9. Shawn says:

    The judge has signed off on the divorce documents and it is now officially finalized. Just an FYI.

    • Corporatestepsister says:

      Long overdue; so now Ben is officially single and so is Jen. I look forward to seeing how things pan out.

    • meme says:

      thats almost hard to believe at this point. good for them for cutting that addict/codependent cord!!!

  10. Loca says:

    I don’t believe there is a boyfriend and is why qe haven’t seen him. Jennifer is a pretty lady its not like she can’t get a date. All signs I’ve seen is that she stays available for all of Ben’s issues. I noticed everytime Ben brakes up with someone she has a radiant smile for the paparazzi the day after. She seems to still want to control his life. I will be surprised if she still moves on. At some point Ben will want a girlfriend around his kids and life, Jennifer will have to accept that even if she doesn’t like it.

  11. Dana marie says:

    The new boyfriend was “fake news” made up by Her PR people so that it seems like she is moving on and to promote her new TV shows/movies. He also may have needed PR for his business so it was a calculated decision for PR on both sides.
