If rumours are to be believed, the Hollywood couple - who have three children together - have split after ten years. Seemingly they've already separated and are looking to divorce. This makes us very sad. It's rare that a celebrity couple in the spotlight manage to make double digits in 'together' years, and we hoped they were in it for the long haul. You know, despite reports that he isn't massively hands on with Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.
Back in 2012, Affleck reportedly admitted: "I am not very present in the rest of my life. My wife's very patient. She does everything. If I have time, I try to spend time with my kids, even if just to be a physical presence, the bath, whatever."
As you can see, twitter is all over the rumoured split this morning...

So, what are these reports saying? RadarOnline appears to be leading the rumours, with a source telling them:
"Often, when Ben and Jen have a problem, they just agree to ride it out and be miserable together until they can get some time apart. Jennifer has close friends who think that she and Ben are a horrible fit, despite how much he loves being a father to those kids."
An additional source spilling to RadarOnline said: "Jen has actually been preparing herself emotionally for this divorce for some time. She sees a therapist to learn how to cope with the divorce, and how to deal with the kids after they split. She’ll take custody of them."
According to Heatworld, the couple "haven't been seen together in public for a month (apart from being pictured together last week...), and Ben has been spotted without his wedding ring in Canada while Jennifer celebrated her 43rd birthday without him."
Their tenth wedding anniversary is on June 19th.
