Ben Affleck may be one of the best stars in Hollywood today, but his personal life seems to be a big mess. His ex refuses to let go, and this makes his present wife uncomfortable. This creates more drama, more problems, and more heartbreak for the trio involved. For a long time now, Ben Affleck’s relationship with his wife Jennifer Lopez was making news for all sorts of reasons. 

However, of late, the fairytale marriage between the two Holywood stars seems to be on the verge of destruction. Who is to be blamed? Jennifer Lopez? Or Jennifer Garner? Or perhaps Ben Affleck refuses to make a choice and sticks with it with his heart.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were once the happiest couple in Hollywood. The duo announced the news of their separation and filed for divorce in 2017 after staying together for 12 years. Garner and Affleck are now co-parenting their three kids Violet, Seraphina Affleck, and Samuel Affleck. In a candid interview, the Ghosts of Girlfriends Past star revealed that she doesn’t like to say or hear things about her ex-husband in the media. 

Talking about her former partner Ben Affleck Garner said,

“I really work hard not to see either of us in the press. It doesn’t make me feel good, even if it’s something nice about one of us. I just try to forget that I’m out there in any way, and the same with anyone I love. I don’t need to see anyone in my family made into a meme. Although I’m sure he’s quite meme-worthy, yes!”

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Garner’s ex-husband discussed his experience co-parenting children with Garner and the type of bond the former couple shares after their divorce. The Argo movie star shared,

“One of the reasons I decided to run my own company was, I’m divorced. I share custody. I don’t want to go to Austin and New Orleans and Georgia anymore and not see my kids.”

Affleck continued,

“It just doesn’t work. These years are too important. If I miss them, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. And then I thought, ok, well, if I’m in Los Angeles and I’m in an office and I’m doing this work, I can step out for the basketball game or the jazz performance. So I protect those things.”

An insider revealed how Jennifer Garner feels about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s marriage. The source said,

“Jen has always approached things the same, no matter who Ben has been with… They have kids together — so if he has another episode, or falls off the wagon, it would be her problem.”

A source close to the former couple told Radar Online,

“It’s Jennifer’s way of saying Ben looks miserable and all his appearances in public are lame. How could JLo not take it personally? Part of her wants to fire back and tell Jennifer off, but she’s smart enough not to make too much of a scene publicly. So it’ll be up to Ben to play referee.”

The insider added,

“It’s Ben’s worst nightmare. It’s just a matter of time before those two women butt heads.”

The former couple Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck first met on the set of Pearl Harbor and became good friends. Garner and the Triple Frontier actor got married in 2005 and announced the news of their separation in 2018. The couple shares three children Violet Anne and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth and Samuel Garner.

Talking about the Ain’t Your Mama singer Affleck shared,

“Oh my God, she’s brilliant. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the way fashion evolves through the culture as a confluence of music, sports, entertainment, and dance. She helped me in talking about the way in which a part of the reason why Jordans shoes were so meaningful is that culture and style in America are 90 percent driven by Black culture.”

When asked why he is not on Instagram Ben Affleck explained,

“My wife’s a genius at that. I don’t know if there’s anybody who understands Instagram better than her. In fact, she gave me a talk this morning before this interview. She thinks that because of experiences that I’ve had, I’ve become very guarded.”

He added,

“And she’s right. I view these things as land mines, where if you say one wrong thing, your career might be over. I had a really painful experience when I did an interview where I was really vulnerable, and the entire pickup was something that was not only not right, it was actually the opposite of what I meant.”
