As reported by PageSix, the actor has been receiving the wrath of fans on social media for his distasteful comments about his former lover on “The Howard Stern Show.”
Aside from the ongoing backlash, the Hollywood sensation’s new woman has shown zero tolerance for the “Justice League” star’s actions.
Jennifer Lopez Is Disappointed With Ben Affleck
On Monday, December 13, the DC actor got candid about his alcohol addiction, which allegedly began during his marriage to the “Peppermint” actress.
Affleck told Stern that his ex-wife was the root of his problems as the 49-year-old began drinking to escape the prison that was their marriage. In his words:
“I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was drink a bottle of Scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.”
This shocking revelation painted Garner as a villain who turned the father of her three children — Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel — into an unhappy drunk.
Regardless of the truth behind the actor’s words, the majority believed his battles with sobriety weren’t one person’s fault. Fans flooded social media to express their displeasure with the Golden Globe winner.
Some reminded the entertainer that his ex-wife supported his recovery by driving him to rehab and staging interventions. In contrast, others pointed out that the “Gone Girl” star was solely responsible for his drinking problems.
Another person disappointed by Affleck’s actions was J.Lo. A source revealed to the news outlet that the “Hustlers” actress was upset with the film director for dragging her into his mess. The insider said:
“[Lopez] is pissed. She is getting pulled into this because she is dating him. She doesn’t want to be dragged into this. She has met Jennifer Garner. She is trying to get to know her and Ben’s kids.”
The pop culture icon has been spotted spending quality time with her lover’s three children alongside her twins Max and Emme, whom the “Pa Ti” singer shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
“The Accountant” Star Felt Blessed To Have A Second Chance With J.Lo
The Blast shared Affleck’s touching confession to Lopez earlier this month following the 2-time Academy Award winner’s interview with WSJ. Magazine.
The Hollywood heartthrob modeled for the magazine’s December/January cover and dropped juicy details about his second relationship with the Latina goddess.
The couple’s first relationship was heading towards the altar until that chapter was suddenly closed. However, years later, the pair managed to rekindle their lost romance.
Despite expressing his distaste for sharing details about his private life, the “Pearl Harbor” star couldn’t help but gush about his affection for Lopez.
The 49-year-old explained that he felt “lucky” to have a second chance with the woman of his dreams. He stated that their relationship would make a “great story,” but unfortunately, telling it wouldn’t happen.
If Affleck ever felt compelled to write his love story with the “Selena” star, the father-of-three joked that he would burn the pages rather than share it.
