Jennifer Garner had to step in and convince estranged husband Ben Affleck to go to rehab.
Thankfully, her intervention worked.
Jennifer went to Ben’s Pacific Palisades home Wednesday afternoon to sit down with her estranged husband, begging him to get help. We’ve learned Ben didn’t need begging … he knows he needs help and was receptive.
Jen and Ben drove off at around 6 PM PT from the house … and sources say the destination is a rehab facility. Our sources say Ben will enter a facility in L.A. County.
We’re told Ben fell off the wagon a while ago, and has gotten progressively worse.
Ben has been to rehab before … back in 2001 for alcohol abuse. He also went back to rehab last December.
Jen filed for divorce in April, 2017 … 2 years after they announced their split. The former couple remained close — partly for their 3 kids — and they are still not officially divorced.
We’re happy to see that Jennifer is still in Ben’s corner — despite their split.
