Ben Affleck‘s son, Samuel Garner Affleck, accidentally backed a 2022 model Lamborghini into a BMW. The 10-year-old is Affleck’s third child with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Besides him, the actor also has two daughters, Violet Anne and Seraphina Rose.
Since they got back together in 2021, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been to several places with their children in tow, seemingly in a bid to familiarize them with each other. Their trip to the L. A car dealership is just one of such visits.
Samuel went along with the couple and, while Affleck was inspecting other cars, got in the driver’s seat of the Lamborghini. The engine of the $230,000 car was still running when the child put it in reverse, rolling the vehicle into the white BMW parked closely behind it. Nobody was hurt from the collision, and the damages were reportedly minimal.
Ben Affleck’s Son Backed Into A BMW
Affleck’s 10-year-old son, Samuel, recently had a minor accident in a very major car. He followed the actor and his fiancée, Lopez, on a weekend visit to 777 Exotics, a luxury car rental dealership in Los Angeles, where he got in a bit of trouble.
While looking at the various cars, Affleck reportedly let Samuel get into the driver seat of the yellow vehicle while the engine of the Lamborghini was still running. The 10-year-old then proceeded to put the car in reverse, which resulted in it bumping into a white BMW stationed behind the vehicle.
After the collision, Samuel jumped out of the car, and the Oscar winner and his son moved to examine the back of the vehicle to check if there were any significant damages. The employees also came up to them to talk about the incident. From the pictures obtained by the paparazzi, there didn’t seem to be any significant damage on either car.
The Cars Weren’t Damaged
A video of the scene showed the rear bumper of the passenger side of the Lamborghini making contact with the front wheel of the white BMW and possibly the car’s fender. An insider’s report on the issue shed more light on the damages to both vehicles.
According to the source obtained by People magazine, neither car suffered any major damages or dents after the incident. They also revealed that Affleck had some regret and was upset after letting his son get into the driver’s seat of the car.
The source said, “Ben was at the dealership to test drive a new car… Sam seemed very interested in exotic cars. Ben let him get into the driver seat of a very expensive Lamborghini, and the car ended up reversing into another parked car. There seems to be no damage to the cars, though. You could tell that Ben very much regretted letting Sam get into the driver’s seat. He seemed upset about it.”
Nobody Was Hurt
Due to how minor the collision was, nobody was hurt. Affleck’s representative reached out to E! News and assured everyone that there was no damage done to anyone in the car. They said, “Thankfully, everyone and everything is OK. This is no damage. Everyone is fine.”
An employee from the dealership also shed light on the matter and confirmed the words of the actor’s representative. He told the New York Post, “When Samuel got into the car, it jerked back and forth. We have a small lot, and the cars are close. Everyone was OK.”
The weekend trip was just one of many moments that Affleck and Lopez have spent with their children. Since the duo got back together in 2021, both parties have put in a lot of effort to blend in with their families. Lopez, Affleck, and his ex-wife Garner were spotted together in 2021 during Halloween while their children went trick or treating.
Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck Are Bonding With Their Children
In his previous marriage to Garner, Affleck had two daughters, Violet and Seraphina, and a son, Samuel. On the other hand, Lopez had twins Emme and Max while married to singer Marc Anthony. Since rekindling their romance, the duo has reportedly tried to bond with each other’s children.
Via E! News, a source close to Lopez said, “J. Lo has made a big effort to get to know Ben’s kids and welcome them into her home and her life. They have spent a lot of time getting to know each other and letting the kids have fun and bond.”
Another source revealed that Garner supported the actress’s continuous presence around the children and her relationship with her ex-husband, Affleck. The insider said, “Jen is happy for Ben and knows that J.Lo has been a positive influence in certain ways.”
