BEN Affleck and Ana De Armas ‘split two weeks ago in secret’ claim insiders – who say the A-lister is now turning to best friend Matt Damon for support.
The Hollywood actor, 48 and Bond star Ana, 32, announced their break up yesterday with sources telling US magazine People that it’s “completely amicable”.
But insiders reveal that the relationship had been on the rocks for over a month before they finally split just after New Year.
“Ana spent Christmas and New Year in Cuba with her family, and Ben was here in LA seeing his kids, which everyone around them found strange,” says the insider.
“Ana gets on really well with Ben’s kids and so spending the holidays apart was a huge sign things weren’t right in the relationship.
“She was still wearing the Cartier bracelet Ben bought her at New Year – but as soon as she arrived back in LA, things ended.”
The pair met at the start of 2020 on the set of movie Deep Water, and moved in together in August this year, with Ana putting her Venice Beach home on the market.
But yesterday, workers at the house were seen clearing Ana’s possessions out of the house – and throwing away a cardboard cut-out of the actress.
Ben failed to mention Ana in a podcast recorded earlier this year where he discussed his battle with alcoholism, saying: “I’ve been sober for a while now, and I feel really good — as healthy and good as I’ve ever felt.”
Friends say a sign that Ben and Ana’s relationship was struggling was the constant presence of his childhood best friend, Matt Damon.
“Matt was at the house in December, and again in the first week of January. Ben’s leaning on Matt because he’s always been there for him at his lowest points,” says the insider.
“He’s also turned to Jennifer [Garner] because despite everything they’ve been through, he knows he can trust her and rely on her.”
Ben and Jennifer were married for 13 years and share three children: daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, and 8-year-old son Samuel.
Despite the split, sources tell The Sun Online that Ben and Ana will remain amicable – because they have months of movie promotion together later this year.
“They’ll reunite in August on the publicity trail for the film, so they’ll have to get along,” says the source.
