With the wedding only crossing the 2-month mark, the relationship between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez has been already exposed to the scrutiny of the rumor mill that keeps churning stories of broken bliss and discontentment. With no substantial facts to support the claim, outlets rely as usual on the random snapshots taken on the go of the Justice League actor’s transitory public appearances.

However, recently, an insider who wished to remain unnamed has spoken about the comings and goings of the newly wedded and the already forming cracks in the outwardly perfect life. According to the source who spoke to Heat magazine, it has been revealed that JLo is intent on puppeteering Affleck and the latter is in too deep to realize the shifting imbalance and his partner’s manipulations in their relationship.

It’s no news that every Hollywood couple has had to bear their fair share of traumatizing media exposure, often pushing them to the edge of a breakdown. The complicated relationship of Hollywood stars with the media and the glamour surrounding them has always played into one another and kept each other relevant. The insider who wished to opine about the marital life of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez becomes yet another factor contributing to the mass scrutiny.

“Everyone, including Ben, knew what marrying Jennifer would entail, but it’s hard to believe he is 100 percent happy when he’s so visibly awkward and lost-looking. It’s almost as if he’s turned into J-Lo’s puppet, just like all the other guys before him, and there’s a strong sense that he’s accepted this is his path, at least for now.

The likes of Matt Damon and his brother Casey have been shaking their heads and hoping he snaps out of it. The poor guy looks like he’s about to burst into tears at any time. [Affleck hasn’t] raised any complaints to Jen [probably because if he] started asking for space, it would not go down very well.”

Although all of it sounds a bit too unreal and far-fetched to be true, the relationship and personal mental health history of Ben Affleck do raise threads of suspicion in the public’s wandering minds about the extent of truth to these assumptions and suppositions. The insider has also claimed:

“Jen would be the first to admit she’s needy, but with Ben it’s on another level. It doesn’t even enter her head that she’s asking too much of him. She views them as the superstar couple of their generation – if not all of time – and so they come as a package deal.

Jen very much wears the pants. She tells him how to dress, eat, work out – how to live his whole life. This is a whole new version of Ben and it’s kind of sad to see. He’s turning into J-Lo’s personal robot.”
