Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck, J.Lo and the kids got together on Halloween

Yesterday we heard that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had reunited in Malibu over the weekend after some time apart for their busy careers. On Sunday they boarded a private plane together to an unknown destination, maybe to Vancouver were Lopez has been filming. After that there was news that Ben, J.Lo and Ben’s ex, Jennifer Garner, ran into each other while they were out on Halloween. TMZ had photos and a report about it, claiming that they were out in the same neighborhood. Photo agency Backgrid claimed that Garner was “seen walking with a friend” and that Ben and J.Lo were trick or treating with J.Lo’s son Max, 13, and Ben’s son Sam, 9. There were no photos of them all together.

People Magazine has a report with the title “Jennifer Garner Joins Ex Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez While Trick-or-Treating with Kids in Malibu.” It’s billed as an exclusive, meaning they got quotes from a rep, and the text doesn’t really match up with the title. People claims that they “met up” while trick or treating, not that they were together or anything.

Jennifer Garner met up with ex-husband Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez while out trick-or-treating with the kids over the weekend.

The stars were spotted out for Halloween in Malibu, with the actress meeting up with Affleck and Lopez at one point.

Earlier that day, Affleck and Garner spent time with their kids at Huckleberry.

“Everyone gets along and the focus is always on the kids. Jennifer, Ben and Jen Garner all wanted the kids to have an amazing Halloween,” a source tells PEOPLE. “The kids are friends and wanted to go trick-or-treating together. It made sense that they all went together.”

Adds the source, “Ben is working today again, so they wanted to enjoy a family weekend.”

So did they all go together and/or plan to meet up or did they just run into each other? I know I’m being nitpicky but it’s like they spin everything into this “everyone gets along” narrative. I’m sure they’re friendly with each other, but it’s not like they all planned to go trick or treating together. Plus People makes it sound like all the kids were there. This is weird PR spin! You know who did the best trick or treating blended family outing? Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, their son and their respective partners in 2018. At that point they only had Jack, who was six, and it was cute to see all four people out with him.

Also, remember the story about how Jennifer Garner had finally met John Miller’s kids and that they were planning to introduce their kids to each other? I wonder what happened to that. Maybe US Weekly will let us know.

    I’m not quite getting the logistics here. J Lo lives in Bel Air, Ben and Jen each have homes in Pacific Palisades but all of them went trick or treating in a gated community in Malibu. The gated part makes sense in terms of safety but Bel Air is 20++++ minutes from the Palisades and Malibu is 10-15 min beyond that…

    • Jamie says:

      Yeah, this is the definitely colony in Malibu but it’s one of those places that goes all out for Halloween and people invite their friends.

    • Al says:

      Ben and Jen Garner have trick or treated there for years. A friend presumably throws a party.

  2. MrsGuyIncognito says:

    Ben looks like Luke Perry

    • Selene says:

      Yessss, it’s the thin face + walking moving the whole back and shoulders + chin pointing upwards vibe.

  3. MarcoPolo says:

    Lmaoooo ppl fall for this.

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      This is so creepy…Jen G “bumped into” J-Lo & Ben? JG was trying to rattle J-Lo, and make her uncomfortable. Jen Garner is not as sweet as she seems. Where is Robot Burger dude?

  4. margot says:

    And of course someone had to run and tell People mag.

    • Love says:

      “Jennifer, Ben and Jen Garner all wanted the kids to have an amazing Halloween”

      The way that is worded tells me it was J.Lo’s people 👀…

  5. bears says:

    How weird would it be if you were out trick or treating with your Mom and then you spotted your dad across the street trick or treating with….someone else’s kids.

  6. Bettyrose says:

    I think of JLo as larger than life. It’s weird to see her as this tiny little thing next to Ben

  7. Jamie says:

    Is that Sara Foster standing next to Jennifer?

  8. Marietta2381 says:

    Funny how they say in the article that Jen G went to breakfast with Ben and the kids, but DM had pics of just Ben and the kids. This article doesn’t make much sense. “E” said they bumped into each other and said the Jens were “cordial.” LOL I’d imagine they’d have to be if they were in front of the kids.

    • Theo says:

      Jens were cordial as they are both mothers, they are both actresses, they are both Ben Affleck,s exes, he cheated on both of them, maybe he is cheating again with a young starlet or a playboy girl on Jen L. and she will be his ex again!

  9. Abby says:

    This is such a weird story.

  10. smcollins says:

    The only thing that popped out to me was the last photo of her & Ben where she’s wearing a t-shirt of herself (insert massive eye roll here)

  11. CJ says:

    It’s not complicated. The kids are friendly. The girls hung out together and Jen and Ben had the boys with them and Garner was there too. I think the point of the article is that they all get along. The gated Malibu community is a safe space where industry people take their kids At Halloween. There are no sidewalks in Bel Air and most of the estates are gated. It’s not exactly A place you walk up to a door and ask for candy.

    • Anne Call says:

      A friend in the Bay Area had Steph Curry and his entire family trick or treating at their house on Halloween. They live in a more traditional “houses next to each other” neighborhood in Menlo Park and Currys probably live in Atherton which is all big estates. Even rich people have to take their kids to different neighborhoods on Halloween.

      Also Garner looks so much better with her athletic shoes and jeans on and JLO looks ridiculous with the selfie tshirt and sky high sandals and jeans.

      • Jaded says:

        Yup…I came her to say what in the name of ridiculous wardrobe choices is she making….?!

      • Anne Call says:

        @jaded Starting to get Charo “I’m so sexy all the time “ vibes from JLO. Looks exhausting.

      • CJ says:

        She didn’t wear that tee shirt to trick or treat. That’s just a photo used for this story. Google it. She wore a sweater with a black cape. She looked not a work and not costuming. Why so much hate for this Latina woman? I just don’t get it.

      • Joey says:

        that’s just the picture they used. the selfie tee was gifted to her from Dolce and Gabbanna as they designed it and models wore it in their recent runway show. If i was famous and gifted a shirt of myself designed by high end designers i would be rocking it

  12. Jayna says:

    The kids are friends and wanted to go trick-or-treating together? LOL They barely know each other. Jen and Ben’s kids have their own friends they hang with and Jen hangs with the moms. I would imagine that’s who you want to go trick-or-treating with, your best friends, kids in your own neighborhood, even if they are going elsewhere to trick or treat.

    • Al says:

      They’ve been hanging out a few times a week for the last six months. Emme and Seraphina go to the same school and have been photographed linking arms so they seem like friends.

      • Carolnr says:

        Interesting that has been said several times now, but surprisingly no pics. I would think the paps would be very eager to get that shot….and since there aren’t any, you personally must have seen them or believe what you have been told..
