Jennifer Garner has responded to this week’s PEOPLE cover story about her divorce from Ben Affleck and she is not pleased.
The story features a bright headline stating, “Life After Heartbreak” and shows a smiling Garner on the cover of the issue. The article discusses how Garner is handling life after filing for divorce and states she is “moving on, finding happiness- and starting over at 45.” The story cites an anonymous source has provided information for the story.
After receiving calls from various loved ones, Garner decided to respond to the unauthorized article in a Facebook post which states,”It has been brought to my attention that there is a People magazine cover and article out today that appear to be coming from me. It isn’t unusual for me to receive calls from loved ones thinking I forgot to tell them I am pregnant — with twins! — (Geez Louise), but those are so ridiculous they’re easy to ignore.”
After denouncing the credibility of the article, she continues to address the claims of the story by stating, “This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight: I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article. While we are here, for what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete.”
A PEOPLE rep reacted to the situation with the following statement, “PEOPLE covers Hollywood stars beloved by our audience, and our story on Jennifer Garner is fair and truthful. To be clear, it does not include rumors and does not say she’s pregnant. We wish her well.”
