E! News confirmed the pair filed for divorce this week.
Although it’s disappointing to those of us who were hoping for a loved-up reunion (spurred on by reports last month), we can take some comfort in the fact that even in breaking up they are as respectful and graceful as ever.
LISTEN: Mamamia Out Loud team discuss another tragic break up – Karl Stefanovic and Cassandra Thorburn’s divorce. (Post continues after audio.)
Court documents show the pair were coordinated as they filed for divorce – without lawyers and at the same time – with Garner’s petition and Affleck’s response matching perfectly, TMZ reports.
There will be no messy custody dispute either.
According to TMZ, the pair are asking for joint legal and physical custody of their three children; Violet, 11, eight-year-old Seraphina and five-year-old Samuel.
It has also been reported the couple is negotiating a financial settlement and that the actors’ divorce could become final within six months.
