Fears for Ben Affleck amid Jennifer Lopez ’split’ rumours: ‘Really troubled’

Friends are reportedly worried that Ben Affleck’s sobriety may be in jeopardy amid reports of his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.

The actor has battled alcoholism and gambling addiction for decades, admitting in 2020 that it had taken him “a long time to basically, deeply, without a shadow of a doubt admit to myself that I am an alcoholic.”

Now, according to the Daily emailthose closest to the actor believe he is suffering from “acute sadness” or is “at risk” of relapse, or is already drinking again.

“I heard he’s been drinking. He is full of demons, a really troubled person,” one source told the publication, while another added that those who care for him felt “really worried.”

Affleck first sought treatment for alcoholism in 2001 and has had two stints in rehab, in 2017 and then again the following year.

Meanwhile, the Mail also claims that Lopez’s mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, initially encouraged her daughter to reunite with Affleck, but has since “turned against him” — and that the singer’s manager, Benny Medina, “openly detests him.”

Lopez and Affleck initially dated from 2002 to 2004, reuniting in 2021 and marrying a year later.

Last month it was reported that Affleck had moved out of the couple’s $60 million mansion and was living in a $100,000-a-month rental.

Shortly afterward, Lopez released a statement saying she was canceling the entire tour, citing the need to spend time with “her children, family and close friends.”

However, it was reportedly a last-ditch attempt to save the relationship.

“I understand that he broke up the marriage, but she has yet to accept the truth of the situation and thinks that with therapy they could cope,” a source told the Mail.

The couple’s union has been under the microscope for weeks, fueled by Lopez’s solo appearance at the Met Gala and the premiere of her new film, Atlas.

We weekly recently quoted a source as saying that Lopez and Affleck are “on two completely different pages” now that their honeymoon phase is over.

The outlet claims the “worn-out” actor is “expelled” from the marriage and “does not agree” with his wife’s “lifestyle.”

None of the high-profile stars have addressed the news about their relationship.
