Jennifer Garner Has Already Started Remodeling Her Bedroom

Bennifer 2.0 is no more, and it looks like we know who’s to keep the house! Radar is reporting Jennifer Garner has already begun remodeling the bedroom she used to share with Ben Affleck. Wouldn’t you love to see those blueprints?

The actress has launched an extensive remodeling project since he moved out, and has exclusively obtained the permit and inspection details about the construction. The Grading Pre-Inspection report states Garner’s work description includes “interior/alteration/remodel to master suite wing.”

In the movie about Jennifer Garner learning to embrace the single life after 10 years of marriage, this is the very first montage scene. Picture it: walls being torn down, furniture being moved, carpet being torn up, paint everywhere - and then Jen steps back and sighs. It’s done. The room is finally hers.

Oh, and because they divorced after their 10-year anniversary, Jennifer will probably receive support payments indefinitely.

Miranda Kerr and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel made out at a Venice, CA restaurant last weekend. The world’s youngest billionaire and Orlando Bloom’s youngest former wife were apparently “really into each other,” but I haven’t yet figured out why. Anyway, while they touched tongues, everyone else at the restaurant was probably filming it and adding the blurry video to their Snapchat stories.

Kim Kardashian was invited to San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club (the place where FDR gave his New Deal speech) to talk about “her famous family, the business of millennial culture and the objectification of women in media.”

During the conversation, she talked about her love of social media, and the importance of having a strong work ethic. But the most notable comment came after she was asked about whether or not all those selfies objectify her.

“Yes. I don’t think it’s a bad thing,” she answered. “I think there’s power in that and I think I have the control to put out what I want so even if I’m objectifying myself, I feel good about it.”


And I feel good about having Selfish on my coffee table.

As a divorce lawyer, I’m here to say that the divorce lawyer in that Radar Online article is a misleading moron. Let’s break it down, shall we?

Wasser told Radar, “Ten years in California generally reflects a long-term marriage. When you hit 10 years,” Wasser explained, “it usually means that the court will continue to have jurisdiction over spousal support, absent an agreement to the contrary. If you’ve been married for 10 years, people don’t usually agree to a cutoff date [for ongoing spousal support], which would otherwise be half the length of the marriage,” she said.

This is not codified in the law. A judge will certainly use duration of the marriage to set spousal support, but 10 years is not a magic number. This is all wild speculation about what Ben and Jen may or may not agree to; it is not based in the law.

Furthermore, there is probably not a ton of room for settlement in this case as the parties almost definitely have a detailed pre-nuptial agreement that decides many of these things for them. You can’t decide custody or child support in a pre-nup, but I would be willing to bet that provisions for division of property and spousal support are very clearly outlined.

And I can almost guarantee that the reason they waited until the day after their 10-year anniversary to file is because the pre-nup grants the lesser-earning spouse (probably Jen) a higher amount or longer duration of support after 10 years.
