The "Real" Reason Ben & Jen Are Splitting Up

On June 30, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced they were splitting up after 10 years of marriage. Within weeks of this announcement, rumors began circulating that the reason for their divorce was Affleck's alleged romance with nanny Christine Ouzounian.

A representative for Affleck told Refinery29 that the claims about Ben and the nanny are "full of lies." But, apparently that's not enough for the general population of Twitter. Some brave Americans have taken it upon themselves to do some freelance detective work to get to the "real" reason Ben and Jen are ending their marriage.

When a Twitter troll is trolling, there's nothing you can do except sit back, relax, and watch the batshit insanity unfold. Here are the most popular (read: disgusting) theories from the sleuths of Twitter.
1. The nanny broke up Ben and Jen, but it's only because she's crazy hot. Everyone knows you never hire a hot nanny, AND IF YOU TYPE IN ALL CAPS, YOUR POINT BECOMES MORE VALID.

2. Affleck is a professional actor, and any affairs he had were part of his method. He should not be criticized for that.
3. You know what, guys? This whole divorce can really be boiled down to Garner's affinity for mom jeans. Maybe if she dressed hotter, Affleck wouldn't have strayed.

4. Plus, she's like, so boring, you guys. Ouzounian is fun. Just look at what a blast she's having pumping gas.

5. We're not totally sure what happened, but Ouzounian is 100% bad for both homes and the porn industry.
