Ben Affleck smokes while riding $450K Rolls-Royce with Jennifer Lopez 'who absolutely hates his cigarettes'
In addition to JLo, Samuel, his 11-year-old son with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, was also breathing in the smoke cloud
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ben Affleck it seems is no longer trying to keep his smoking habit away from wife Jennifer Lopez.
Despite reports that JLo 'absolutely hates Ben's cigarettes' and wants her husband to overcome his addiction, the 51-year-old 'Batman' actor was spotted smoking while operating his wife's $450k Rolls-Royce with the singer at his side.
Affleck was seen smoking a cigarette in Los Angeles
On Friday, Affleck was seen smoking a cigarette in Los Angeles. The Oscar winner defied JLo and appeared content and at ease. In addition to JLo, Samuel, his 11-year-old son with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, was also breathing in the smoke cloud.
During their outing, the couple appeared tense until they noticed photographers clicking away. JLo instantly turned her frown upside down and grinned as her spouse continued to puff. The 'Shotgun Wedding' actress wore her brown hair in a sleek bun and a cream-colored turtleneck and oversized sunglasses for a laid-back drive around the city.
When we last saw Affleck and JLo together, they were deep in conversation, which made many people wonder if there was trouble in paradise. Insiders claim that the couple has been at odds since their 2022 nuptials, but a friend cautioned that Affleck's smoking may be the final straw.
Couple has been at odd over his smoking habit
"Jen says it bothers her to look at Ben and see he's constantly chewing his cud," a source shared earlier this year, while another pal claimed he was trying to kick his vice despite being a smoker for decades.
Source says 'Ben only smokes outside and away from Jen'
A friend said, "Now, Ben only smokes outside and away from Jen, and he's cut his habit way down by using nicotine gum, but he admits she hates all the gum-chewing as much as the actual smoking."
The source added, "She absolutely hates Ben's cigarettes. He promised to give it up, but with all her nagging he's smoking more than ever."
