Marc Anthony is suspicious of 'moody' Ben Affleck, feels 'protective' of ex Jennifer Lopez and their children
An insider reportedly claimed that 'mistrusting' Marc Anthony was shocked when the 'Jenny from the Block' singer rekindled her romance with Affleck
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Marc Anthony wishes Jennifer Lopez all the happiness in the world, but according to a recent report, the singer's third husband is still wary of the man she chose as her fourth spouse. In the most recent issue of National Enquirer, sources reported that a close friend claimed "mistrusting" Marc Anthony was shocked when the 'Jenny from the Block' singer rekindled her broken romance with Ben Affleck and got married to him nearly 20 years after a bitter split.
An anonymous insider told the magazine, "Marc heard too much about how Ben became moody and out of control for him to think it was a great to get back with him all these years later." The informant added that Anthony is "suspicious" of Affleck and "protective" of JLo and their children.
In 2004, JLo caught many fans by surprise, when she and her then-fiance, Affleck officially split after a very public two-year relationship. Five months later, JLo secretly married singer and longtime friend Marc Anthony on June 5, 2004, in the backyard of her Beverly Hills home even though the pair had not made their romance public at the time. The couple got divorced in 2014 and are now co-parenting their 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme.
Jlo and Affleck got married on July 16, 2022. Recently, the 'On The Floor' singer told Vogue that her now-husband was the one to rekindle their romance. "Obviously, we weren't trying to go out in public. But I never shied away from the fact that for me, I always felt like there was a real love there, a true love there. People in my life know that he was a very, very special person in my life. When we reconnected, those feelings for me were still very real," she said.
However, according to Radar, Affleck and JLo have been fighting constantly since getting married in Sin City, and the 'Batman' actor is "not happy" in his marriage to JLo. Reports claim that the actor's smoking habit is one point on which they can't agree, and JLo's persistent nagging is supposedly making it worse. "She absolutely hates Ben's cigarettes," a source said in September. "He promised to give it up, but with all her nagging he's smoking more than ever." In addition, the insider claimed that Affleck had sought help from his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, following his marital difficulties.
