Ben’s Mom Begs Jen:

In Touch (USA) - - In The Know -

Ben Af­fleck and Jen­nifer Gar­ner are mov­ing ahead with their di­vorce — un­less Ben’s mom, Chris­tine Boldt, has her way. “She’s asked Jen to halt the di­vorce pro­ceed­ings,” an in­sider tells In Touch. “She is so afraid that Ben will go off the rails with­out the fam­ily to ground him.” The sit­u­a­tion be­tween Ben and Jen, both 44, didn’t look good in late Septem­ber, when they were pho­tographed hav­ing a heated and emo­tional dis­cus­sion in their car. The pair have been liv­ing to­gether in their fam­ily home with kids Vi­o­let, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Sa­muel, 4, since an­nounc­ing their split last year, but it can’t stay that way for­ever — and Chris­tine is wor­ried about what will hap­pen next. “She has seen Ben at his low­est, when he falls into a vi­cious cy­cle of par­ty­ing and booz­ing,” says the in­sider. “That happening again is her big­gest night­mare.” There’s only so much Jen can take, though. “She loves Chris­tine,” adds the in­sider, “but she can’t stay mar­ried to Ben to be his babysit­ter.”

“Jen is torn and doesn’t know what to do,” says an in­sider.
