LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were the epitome of 'true love' when the former exes rekindled their romance last year and tied the knot. However, their fairy tale appears to have taken a dark turn since, sparking concern among loved ones.

A source has claimed that Jennifer is intent on pulling Ben's strings and that the latter is in too deep to realize the growing imbalance in their relationship. There have been several pictures of late showing the 'Gone Girl' actor, 50, looking bored next to the 'On The Floor' hitmaker, 53. An insider has claimed that those close to the couple are concerned the singer has turned her husband into her own "personal robot."

“Everyone, including Ben, knew what marrying Jennifer would entail, but it’s hard to believe he is 100 percent happy when he’s so visibly awkward and lost-looking," the source told Heat magazine. "It’s almost as if he’s turned into J-Lo’s puppet, just like all the other guys before him, and there’s a strong sense that he’s accepted this is his path, at least for now," they continued, adding. "The likes of Matt Damon and his brother Casey have been shaking their heads and hoping he snaps out of it. The poor guy looks like he’s about to burst into tears at any time.”

The insider told the magazine that the actor is not in a rush to express his displeasure with his new wife. "Ben’s not raised any complaints to Jen, probably because he knows if he started asking for space, it would not go down very well," they said, adding, “Jen would be the first to admit she’s needy, but with Ben, it’s on another level. It doesn’t even enter her head that she’s asking too much of him. She views them as the superstar couple of their generation – if not of all time – and so they come as a package deal.”

Ben's loved ones are apparently concerned that he might be in deeper than he thought. “Jen very much wears the pants," the source alleged. "She tells him how to dress, eat, work out – how to live his whole life. This is a whole new version of Ben and it’s kind of sad to see. He’s turning into J-Lo’s personal robot.”
