Since the wedding of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck took place, there have been talks of the two being deeply in love with each other. After a decade since the two separated due to ‘irreconcilable differences,’ the lovebirds re-married in 2022 after divorcing their previous partners. However, after only a few weeks of their honeymoon, another contradictory rumor began going around. A rumor talking about a possible divorce between the couple.
Affleck, who has a history of alcohol addiction, might have a chance of a relapse. His former partner Jennifer Garner was herself concerned about the Argo actor even after the split due to a possible relapse. And with so much to handle, a job, kids and a new marriage might trigger the relapse mode. Recently news about Affleck falling back into his old addiction routine surfaced. And according to some, this might become the source of a possible divorce.
Is Ben Affleck Relapsing into His Alcohol Addiction Again?
Batman V Superman star has a history of suffering from alcohol addiction. Ben Affleck announced his recovery from alcoholism back in 2021. At the time he said,
“I have treatment for alcohol addiction; Something I have health with in the past and will continue to confront”
As alcoholism was one crucial factor in his divorce from his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner was reportedly concerned about Affleck even after the split in case the Argo actor relapsed. According to Ok! Magazine, a source close to Garner shared, “Jen will always keep an eye on how Ben’s doing,”. The same source also mentioned further that the Valentine’s Day star was happy for her ex-husband’s new marriage with Jennifer Lopez. Adding that both of the women got along with each other just fine.
However, the only thing that worried Garner was Affleck’s mental well-being. The source said, “He’s being pulled in a lot of directions — and that’s something that quietly worries Jen,”. Therefore with so many going around at the same time for the Gone Girl actor, one thing or another might trigger a relapse.

Now some rumors believe the new couple’s relationship is fractured. Even though it does not seem that way on the outside. And a recent video shared by JLo celebrating the 20th anniversary of her album This is Me might have some clues about their relationship. As the Ain’t your Mama singer shared via her social media accounts writing,
“It’s crazy to see myself talking about showing my kids this album 20 years from then, and here we are!!!!” and “So much has changed…I have changed…but some things have stayed the same. Life is a poetically beautiful and sometimes broken road.”
Some believe those lines give out little clues about a possible split. Another factor is JLo’s recent sensual pictures. Both combined reason has led to people guessing the singer might be hinting at the fourth divorce.
