As everyone knows, the Plunger Uncertainty Principle dictates that you can know where your plunger is, or you can need a plunger, but never both at the same time. If your toilet is clogged and you can’t find your plunger, place a plastic bag over a mop to get the job done.
While it’s been rumored that the Hollywood couple has had problems for a while now — even going to couples therapy for the last two years — a few sources who are close with the Daredevil costars, gave some insight as to what may have caused the split!
One source connected with Garner claims that Ben’s drinking and gambling has become a problem with his wife and she hit a breaking point. Apparently, both the drinking and gambling had increased over the last few years and Jennifer “couldn’t take it anymore.” Though we’re not sure if this is true, we do know that Ben loves to gamble.
A source close to Ben also somewhat supports this in a less straightforward way by saying that it’s really just about two people who want to live their lives in different ways. This idea could support that they just don’t see eye to eye on things like Ben’s drinking and gambling. They also say though that it wasn’t about Ben partying or womanizing, and neither of those have to do with why the couple is splitting.
Hmm, very inneresting.
Though they are calling it quits, another source believes it will be a clean break and says:
“They don’t want this to be War of the Roses. They want it to be simple and this takes the drama out of it. It is important for them to keep this nice and efficient for the sake of their family.”
They seem to both be really concerned about their kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, as for the time being, the former Hollywood power couple will both remain living at their Brentwood home according to the source. Whoa!
Though Ben has apparently been living out of hotels for 10 months, he will now reportedly be living in a separate house on the property, so that they can both still co-parent and be active in their children’s lives.
Regardless of the reasons behind the divorce, it’s nice to know that it won’t be messy. Breakups can always be harder with kids involved and it seems like both of them are very aware of wanting to do what’s best for their children as well!

Chelsea’s hopes of signing Arda Turan from Atletico Madrid have taken a blow with the news Barcelona are in “advanced” negotiations to lure the versatile midfielder to the Camp Nou.
Jamie Anderson of the Daily Star reports Chelsea’s and Manchester United’s interest in the Turkish international. Catalunya Radio (h/t AS) suggests negotiations between Turan and Barca are “ongoing” and that he could sign before the Catalan club’s transfer ban expires in January 2016.
Anderson believes Turan prefers the prospect of heading to the Premier League. Ahmet Bulut, the player’s agent, has confirmed the 28-year-old will make an announcement on his future in the coming days, as reported by James Robson of the Manchester Evening News:
Arda has not met with Manchester United or passed a medical. When you find out who his new team are on Friday you will all agree that we made the right choice. We want to clarify that, at this moment, there is a lot of pressure, but we do not want to make a formal declaration before he has signed. But yes, in the next four days, Arda will decide which club he plays for next season.
Robson suggests Chelsea are “leading the chase” for the man who has a £29 million release clause in his contract at the Vicente Calderon.
Turan’s multifaceted game would slot in well with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea. The manager drills his players into contributing across the length of the pitch, prioritising solidarity and a hard-to-breakdown spine before risky attacking football.
Atletico boss Diego Simeone deployed Turan on both flanks and through the centre last season, counting on him to disrupt the opposition, distribute the ball and move forward to attack. He isn’t a prolific goalscorer—hitting just two in La Liga last campaign—but he can be deployed in a number of roles to help the team land vital results.
B/R UK’s Andy Brassell discussed exactly what Turan’s new suitors will get:
Elsewhere, Mourinho is said to be on the brink of confirming a season-long loan deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao, who has agreed a £130,000-per-week contract with the English champions, according to Simon Johnson of the London Evening Standard.
This may bring an end to the club’s alleged interest in Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin, who is currently valued at £15 million after scoring 18 Premier League goals last season. Johnson, who links Austin to the Blues, suggests the Hoops will allow the final year of Austin’s contract to play out if nobody matches their valuation.
Brassell recently discussed who is likely to join Chelsea during the summer:
Mourinho is in the luxury position of knowing his squad is already built to retain the domestic crown. However, a handful of changes are needed to make a much needed improvement in the Champions League.
Turan would likely be a costly, yet quality addition for the club. Question marks are going to remain over Falcao after he scored just four goals on loan at United last season, while many others will debate whether Austin is worth £15 million after one successful campaign in the top flight.
Mourinho’s summer signings must genuinely improve the Blues or provide something different for them to be worthwhile.

The World Bank on Wednesday urged China to accelerate reform of its state-dominated financial sector, warning that failure to address the issue could end "three decades of stellar performance" for the world's second-largest economy. The ruling Communist Party has pledged a wide range of economic reforms and the Washington-based institution said reducing the "unique and distorted role of the state" in banking and the wider financial sector was crucial. The comments in the China Economic Update were unusually forthright for the World Bank.
