Even though Affleck and Garner went official in 2004, the former pair kept their relationship mostly under wraps. That is when some speculations surfaced about Garner being unfaithful to her former husband, however, the Scandal star was not convinced.

Rather than holding any person accountable, he focused on the pressure of the Alias star’s growing celebrity status that somewhat created the gap between the former couple. “Nobody else was involved,” he shared with PEOPLE in 2003. He added,

“Jennifer became a huge celebrity. She became a huge star, and she deserved everything she got. There was no other relationship, there was no infidelity, nothing. People get divorced, you know? Through no one’s fault and everyone’s fault.”

Even though nothing of that sort was ever confirmed, the former husbands’ of Garner had a good relationship with her.
