Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez face marital trouble as 'lazy' 'Batman' star won't pick up dogs' poop
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez 'live in a complete zoo' with eight dogs running around the house and chasing after the cat, an insider said
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are apparently quarreling because the 'Batman' star refuses to clean up the poop from their numerous pets or handle their menagerie of animals, which is seriously upsetting the couple after only 16 months of marriage.
A source said, "They've got eight dogs and a cat, so it's a complete zoo."
Pets turn Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's domestic life chaotic
The source added, "None of the dogs are properly trained, so they're constantly barking and racing around the house chasing the cat. It's chaos!"
According to the National Enquirer's tipster, J Lo "swears" she's the only one who tries to contain the critters and she's always nagging the Oscar winner to lend a hand — or at least "pick up the poop," as reported by Radar Online.
According to the insider, Affleck thinks he can solve the issue with money. They went on, "His answer is to hire people to do it for them. But it really bugs Jennifer because he has more than enough time on his hands. So in her view, he's just being lazy."
To make matters worse, sources claim that all of the pets seem to gravitate toward the easygoing Affleck, much to the chagrin of the 'Let's Get Loud' star.
Ben Affleck does 'none of the work' with dogs
The source said, "The dogs especially can't seem to get enough of Ben. They race to him when he walks in the room. If he leaves the house, they start whining and want to follow him. Jennifer must give them treats to get them to calm down."
The source added, "Basically, he gets all the perks with none of the work, which is one of her biggest frustrations," as per reports.
The couple is said to be at odds because of Affleck's uncomfortably close relationship with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.
This tension was heightened, according to sources, when they were seen comforting each other after the actor collided with another car during a joint outing in Santa Monica.
The tipster revealed that J Lo, the hottie from 'Hustlers', feels Affleck is entitled because of his easy life and claims that the power struggle between the two is "without a doubt" a "trigger for a much bigger issue between them."
In the meantime, J Lo finds it annoying when Affleck teases her in front of his friends about how jealous she is of their dogs. "It's all super childish," added the insider.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez having trouble in paradise
The married couple has reportedly been "fighting" since saying "I do" last year, according to sources.
Per an insider, things quickly went south after their honeymoon. His bad habits and wardrobe supposedly caused the two to argue. "He's a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy and now Jennifer is trying to tell him what he can and can't wear," the friend shared.
