The former couple, who split in June 2015, met on October 12 to take their kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel, out for ice cream. One day earlier, Affleck apologized to Burton on Twitter for groping her in 2003 when she was hosting MTV’s TRL. “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton,” he wrote on Twitter. “And I sincerely apologize.” Affleck’s apology came just a few hours after the One Tree Hill alum tweeted about the incident, writing: “I didn’t forget … I was a kid.”
Garner dressed casually for the occasion, wearing jeans, a T-shirt and sunglasses as she walked to meet Affleck. Shortly after the Batman star apologized to Burton, another old clip resurfaced online in which the Oscar winner suggests to TV host that she take off her top and they do a “Janet Jackson stunt.” Losique defended Affleck the following day saying that the stunt was for the camera and the clip was now being taken “completely out of context.”
The duo came back together on October 13 for a private event in Los Angeles.
