Hollywood actor couple Ben Affleck, 42 and Jennifer Garner, 43, who seemed like a happy couple until last week, have ended their marriage because of Jennifer Lopez.
The couple also known as Bennifer, officially announced their divorce on Tuesday (30/06/15)
This is just a day after their 10th Anniversary. According to friends, the main reason which led to their divorce was Affleck’s continued friendship with his ex-fiancée J-Lo, 45.
A friend stated, ”Everyone is talking about J-Lo and Ben and saying it’s inevitable they will get together again at some point. We call them the Richard Burton and Liz Taylor of Hollywood. They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch over email. Jennifer Garner never liked it.”
Some of the friends have explained that another reason that the couple’s marriage went downhill was due to Ben (who quit drinking after spending time in rehab in 2001) began drinking again to get into character for his role in David Fincher’s Gone Girl in 2014. This led to him missing the 13 Going On 30 actress’s birthday in April and America’s Mother’s Day in May, bearing in mind that Affleck and Garner have three children together- Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel.
Informing The Sun newspaper, one of the friends quoted: ”This has been on the cards for some time — it’s a miracle Jen hung on so long.
”She has really tried but recently Ben has been back to his old self. He was drinking again while filming Gone Girl and has been gambling loads too. Jen’s fed up with him flying off to Vegas for gambling sessions and going on other solo trips, leaving her holding the family together.
”Their household is pretty much alcohol free so he would disappear when he wanted to indulge.”
