Jennifer Garner does not retreat to an â€śOklahoma hideaway homeâ€ť to escape Ben Affleck, despite a bogus report. The premise is completely inaccurate. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
Last year, the actress purchased the farm where her mother grew up in Locust Grove, Oklahoma. Garner uses the property to grow fruits and vegetables for her company Once Upon a Farm, which makes organic food for kids. RadarOnline is completely skewing the situation by claiming the actress only visits Oklahoma to â€śescape the torment of her breakup.â€ť
The unreliable blog further contends that Garner has been â€ślicking her woundsâ€ť in the midwest as she deals with her divorce from Affleck and has even â€ścreated a second home in the small town.â€ť This simply isnâ€™t the case. The websiteâ€™s speculative story, which doesnâ€™t have a single source to back it up, is a total misrepresentation of circumstances. Garnerâ€™s rep, whoâ€™s qualified to speak on her behalf, tells Gossip Cop that the actress â€śdoes not liveâ€ť on the farm. Weâ€™re further told, â€śSome of her family still lives there and they are harvesting for the brand Once Upon A Farm.â€ť
This past July, Garner gave a tour of her farm to CBS News, along with her mom and uncle, explaining that she purchased the property because her family â€śhas a connection to the landâ€ť and she wanted her business â€śto be connected to my family.â€ť The news piece made note that Garner also has a â€śbackyard garden at her Los Angeles home,â€ť which is where she resides full-time.
When Garner appeared on â€śGood Morning Americaâ€ť that same month, the actress noted, â€śItâ€™s so fun to connect anything you do back to your family. And if I had known my mom would be this happy about us using her family farm, I would have done it a long time ago.â€ť Simply put, Garner uses her Oklahoma farm to grow food for her business and to visit her family. The actress also has a personal connection to the farm. However, Garner doesnâ€™t live there and she certainly doesnâ€™t use it as a â€śhideawayâ€ť from Affleck.
Of course, itâ€™s not shocking that RadarOnline created a phony account of the situation. Gossip Cop busted the blog last December for falsely claiming that Affleck dumped Lindsay Shookus to reunite with Garner. The actor and his ex-girlfriend remained together until breaking up this past July, and he isnâ€™t back together with his estranged wife.
