JLo 'pissed' after Ben Affleck 'blames' ex Jennifer Garner for his drinking problem
In a recent interview he gave, Ben Affleck said that his ex-wife Jennifer Garner is the reason behind his failed attempts at staying sober. His fans and followers aren't very pleased with Ben's blame game.
It seems like Jennifer Lopez is not happy either with what her boyfriend Ben Affleck had to say about his ex-wife in a recent interview. In the freewheeling interview that Ben Affleck did with host Howard Stern, he openly voiced his opinion, pinning his struggles and challenges with sobriety on his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
During this interview on Tuesday, December 14, Ben Affleck shared with Howard Stern on 'The Howard Stern Show' about the challenges he faced in his journey to stay sober and the reasons behind these struggles. The star said, "Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. 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 drank a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution." He agreed that he was wrong to think that alcohol would be the solution. Many thought Affleck's take on his ex and children showed his reckless and cavalier attitude.
It was reported that when Jennifer Lopez heard what he said, she was not very pleased. A source reportedly told Page Six, "[Lopez] is pissed. She is getting pulled into this because she is dating him. She doesn't want to be dragged into this." Lopez has met with Ben's ex wife Jennifer Garner a few times and even expressed her desire to get to know Ben's kids. This signals that she is looking at a blended family scenario with cordial relations all around. But Affleck's words may have soured the possibility of shared vacations and family time in the future.
Ben Affleck on 'good mom' Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner entered into sacred matrimony in 2005. A decade later in 2015, they called it off. During the 10 years of their marriage, they had three children. Violet who is 16, Seraphina, 12, and the youngest son named Samuel is nine. In another interview, Ben Affleck when speaking about his ex-wife said, "We had a marriage that didn’t work; this happens with somebody that I love and respect, but to whom I shouldn’t be married any longer. I knew she was a good mom."
Similarly, Jennifer Lopez also shares a pair of twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony who is a singer just like her. This year on Halloween, Ben Affleck was seen trick-or-treating with his kids, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lopez, and her kids. Jennifer Lopez's kids and Ben Affleck's kids were captured vacationing in Los Angeles in August. The group also ran a food drive in the month of November.
