'Honeymoon is over': Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck vexed by work pressure, jealousy a year into marriage
It seems Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have already hit a rough patch after just one year of marriage
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck married in Las Vegas on July 17, 2022 at the Little White Wedding Chapel.
Later, on August 20, 2022, the couple celebrated their marriage again at Affleck's home in Georgia. However, it now seems that the duo is having problems in paradise.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's 'honeymoon phase is over'
According to sources close to the Hollywood power couple, one year after saying "I do," Affleck and Lopez have hit a snag in their seemingly perfect marriage.
A source said, "The honeymoon phase is over." Explaining the current dynamic between the pair, the source added, "Of course, they're still madly in love, but they're under a lot of pressure with work obligations, being in the spotlight and blending their families," as reported by OK Magazine.
Another significant issue is the 'Good Will Hunting' star's close relationship with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. "Ben and Jen are extremely close," an insider said of the '13 Going on 30' star and Affleck, who have three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 11.
The source spilled, "In fact, there have been a lot of photos of them together lately where Ben looks so happy, happier than he usually looks when he's with J Lo. That's not lost on J Lo. She doesn't think Ben wants Jen back — J Lo even likes Jen very much — but what woman wouldn't be a little jealous?"
Ben Affleck made 'shocking confessions' to Jennifer Garner
The Boston native and Garner were seen cuddling up in a car in Los Angeles, sparking a flurry of rumors. A source spilled details about their relationship, saying, "He's made some shocking confessions to her about J Lo's temper and the ugly texts she sends him, which he shouldn't have done. He admitted that her notorious diva attitude can be very hard to handle."
Lopez contacted the 'Alias' star to express her discomfort with her interactions with Affleck, indicating that the close relationship between the ex-couples is not sitting well with her. "The jealousy J Lo feels over their deep connection is intense," the insider claimed.
They said, "She believes Ben lied to her about his friendship with Jen — their bond is stronger today than when they were married — and she let Jen know she doesn't appreciate how much of her husband's time Jen has been taking up. They're currently in a big fight over Ben."
The insider added, "Rumor has it that J Lo and Jen exchanged texts about Jen's closeness to Ben, and things got heated." The source said of their once close dynamic, "Jen even canceled some of their planned get-togethers as a blended family because of the tension between them."
