Actor Ben Affleck reportedly has more on his table amid a backlash over the comment he made about his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, in an interview onÂ Â Howard Stern.
While discussing his divorce from Jennifer Garner during an interview on â€œThe Howard Stern Showâ€ on Tuesday December 14, Affleck pinned his drinking issue on his ex-wife. According to him, he resorted to drinking because he felt trapped in the marriage.
â€œPart of why I started drinking was because I was trapped. I was like, â€˜I canâ€™t leave because of my kids, but Iâ€™m not happy, what do I do?â€™ And what I did was drank a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.â€
Insiders have now told PageSix that his girlfriend and singer, Jennifer Lopez isnâ€™t happy with him over the interview
The source said;
â€œ[Lopez] is pissed. She is getting pulled into this because she is dating him. She doesnâ€™t want to be dragged into this.â€
â€œShe has met Jennifer Garner. She is trying to get to know her and Benâ€™s kids. Itâ€™s reckless and cavalier of him.â€
However another source said;
â€œThis isÂ simply not true and the focus is on the children.â€
Affleck and Garner were married from 2005 to 2015 and share kids Violet, 16,Â Seraphina, 12, andÂ Samuel, 9.
Lopez shares twins Max and Emme, 13, with ex-husband singer Marc Anthony.
Garner, Affleck and LopezÂ all went trick-or-treatingÂ together this past Halloween with their respective children.
