Jennifer Garner's new boyfriend, John Miller, could have some skeletons in his closet.
Miller and his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell, had a custody battle while they divorced, and in 2016, Campbell submitted a statement to try to establish an official custody calendar with 50/50 of their two children, according to The Blast.
"John's words and actions," Campbell said, "led me to believe that his insistence on having our children half the time was mainly to avoid having to pay child support and not because he intended to take care of them. of our children, something that he rarely did. "
She finally accepted the custody agreement because she wanted to "avoid her anger" and "minimize the impact of the pending divorce" on her children; However, the agreement finally collapsed due to the "imposition of John's unilateral rules that seriously interfere with my ability to care for our children," he said.

She added: "To avoid John's wrath, for years I used to accept what he wanted when we did not agree … and I can not face him, he's an excellent and aggressive negotiator and I'm not." When we do not agree With specific issues, he considers his opinions as control decisions, and rarely considers commitments that I propose.
"I think he feels satisfied controlling me and making me pay the price for ending the marriage," Campbell continued. "To avoid scenes, minimize stress on children and protect their happy family environment, I usually choose to accompany him instead of risking John's anger."
Miller, who is executive director of a hamburger chain called CaliBurger, presented his own statement in September 2017. In it, he cited an example in which he was without seeing his children for eight days, arguing: "I do not think he's in The best interest of children is to be away from me for such a long period of time. "
