UPDATE: TMZ reports that there aren’t likely to be any money issues in Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce. The site notes that while there is no pre-nuptial agrement, the two are pretty equally well-off thanks to Garder’s syndication money from Alias along with her film roles.

The two sides’ business managers are currently trying to figure out how to split things up. Garner is unlikely to get spousal support, but she doesn’t need it. Dividing the property is most of the work and that is said to be going well.

ORIGINAL:Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing. The two released a statement to People Magazine confirming that they’re calling it quits after ten years.

The statement reads, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”

TMZ reports that the two will not file right away, as they are working things out through a mediator and business managers. The divorce won’t be filed until custody and property issues are resolved.

The two have three children together, the oldest of which is nine.
