Ben Affleck “feels like a fool” amid Jennifer Lopez divorce rumors, claims source

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard all about the ongoing marital troubles experienced by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.

The pair delighted fans the world over after reuniting near-on 20 years after their first engagement broke down, then going on to finally tie the knot in a Las Vegas ceremony two years ago.

Back in 2022, it seemed as though the pair had done the necessary growing and soul-searching in their years apart to make it work. Both had been married to other people, both had children, both seemed to be over the moon to get a second shot with one another.

Fast forward to present, though, and the picture doesn’t look half so rosy. In recent weeks it’s been widely reported that Affleck and Lopez’s union is languishing in choppy waters, and though neither has delivered anything that can be interpreted as an official statement, there have been signs that things are some way from harmonious.

Not only has Affleck reportedly moved out of the couple’s shared $60 million Beverly Hills home, but he’s also been spotted without his wedding ring on more than one occasion.

Lopez, meanwhile, has made numerous public appearances in recent weeks without her husband by her side, and one plucky reporter even quizzed her on the state of her marriage, to which she coyly replied: “You know better than that.”

Only yesterday was it reported by Radar Online that Gone Girl star Affleck had “struggled with loneliness” since moving out of their home “and realized how much he misses Jen.”

Yet today it’s a different tune being sung by the outlet. They cite a source who spoke to InTouch Weekly and revealed that Ben “feels like such a fool” with things on the verge of falling apart.

“They reunited 20 years after they first broke up, only to see everything fall apart again,” the source, a friend of the couple, allegedly told InTouch Weekly.

Of the friction between the pair, the insider continued: “She can’t control him and he can’t change her.”

As already mentioned, the couple stunned fans when they began dating again in 2021, some 17 years after having called off their engagement. Just a year later they tied the knot, but that now looks to have perhaps been a decision made in haste.

“All this time, Ben’s friends and family have been asking him what he was thinking — and he doesn’t have a good answer. It’s like he was under a spell,” the InTouch Weekly source went on. “He made a huge mistake and feels like such a fool.”

The same mole also claimed that J-Lo was devastated by the break down of their romance. Even worse, she’s desperate to save face regarding a potential fourth failed marriage.

“She’s desperate to save the relationship, not just because she still loves him, but she also wants to save face, from having a fourth failed marriage,” the source explained. “Their final days and nights together were excruciatingly difficult. She begged Ben for a second chance, but he said no.”
