Reports suggest that Lopez and Affleck's potential split will not come cheap for the "Argo" actor.

The singer allegedly wants him to part with half his fortune because she picked up the tabs during their nearly two-year marriage.

The source added that Affleck "always grumbled about spending money," so Lopez decided not to bother him to avoid hearing his complaints about her spending habits.

"One of the little-known secrets is Jennifer paid for much of their marital expensesand now she feels he owes her," the source said. "She's adding up all those private jet bills she puts on her plastic, the hotels, and meals, clothes, coffee runs, gas. The high cost of living was done on her dime. She paid the lion's share for that $60 million mansion they bought, too."

"Ben took so much money out of her, at least that's what she's saying," the source added.

The insider went on to suggest that the "Let's Get Loud" singer is not to blame for their relationship's rupture and that the situation would have been different if Affleck had stayed in the marriage.

Their troubled marriage has opened her eyes to how much her estranged husband allegedly cuffed out of her, and she is now "demanding a full inventory of what she spent versus what he spent and wants all the money back."

"She isn't the one who gave up on their marriage and she's feeling seriously burned and is out for blood," the insider told the news outlet. "If he had stayed in the marriage like a good boy, she wouldn't have minded."

"But he abandoned her and ultimately, Jennifer always gets payback and now she's ready to play hardball," the source added.

"If people could see what she has really gone through they would be easier on her. Ben is a great guy but he can be grumpy and a downer," they continued. "I think the world saw that in photos like when they were at the Grammys last year; he wouldn't smile. If they saw how it really was, they would not attack her."

"He chain smokes and cusses and seems irritated a lot of the time. Great director and actor, but not a lot of laughs with him, you know?" the insider added. "He is a wonderful father though."

"Jennifer's mom told her, 'Cut your losses and move on to avoid getting any deeper in this mess,'" an insider told the news outlet. "She told her that she's wasted years believing that Ben was some kind of knight in shining armor."
