The news comes as insiders earlier revealed that Lopez’s mother and manager have turned against Affleck, adding to the strain on their relationship. Despite attempts to salvage their marriage, sources now suggest that divorce is inevitable.

Affleck and Lopez were recently seen at their former shared mansion, sparking speculation about the state of their relationship. While the actress has reportedly been making efforts to save their marriage, Affleck is said to have “checked out” already.

They restarted their relationship in 2021, almost twenty years after they first dated in 2002. They got married on July 16, 2022, in a ceremony in Las Vegas.

Ben Affleck’s struggles with sobriety have been well-documented, with the actor first seeking help for alcoholism in 1997. He decided to give up alcohol, as he revealed to Fox News at the time:

I just wanted to stop. I started regretting some things I did when I was drunk. It’s funny to be obnoxious or out of control, but then it’s like, ‘I think I hurt that person’s feelings, ‘I made a fool of myself’ or ‘I didn’t want to kiss that girl.’ I have almost no inhibitions, so it’s dangerous for me.

It was not until 2001 that the Pearl Harbor actor, 51, began looking for treatment for alcoholism (see US Weekly). Despite periods of sobriety and multiple stints in rehab, he has faced setbacks. Affleck discussed his family’s history of “alcoholism and mental illness” in a 2021 interview with the New York Times, saying: 

The legacy of that is quite powerful and somethings hard to shake.

Anyway, as the drama unfolds, it is clear that both Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are facing arduous decisions and emotional turmoil.
