National Enquirer, in its Jan. 3 issue, said that Jennifer Lopez’s outrageous demands are stressing Affleck out. And it has reached a point wherein he lashed out at Garner during their recent outing.

“Ben always had a short fuse but this is not cool behavior. It’s both shocking and unacceptable for him to shout and scream like that in front of Jennifer. Lord only knows what set him off. But, thankfully, Jen managed to stay calm and composed while he ranted and raved. Poor Jen has the patience of a saint. Still, she shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of behavior under any circumstances,” the unnamed source said.

There’s also no tension between Garner and Affleck and the Batman v Superman actor made this clear when he spoke with Jimmy Kimmel.

“I had gone on about how much we respected each other and how we cared about each other and cared about our kids and put them first. And went through our stuff. And they said that I had blamed my ex-wife for my alcoholism and that I was trapped in this marriage and just made me out to be the worst, most insensitive, stupid, awful guy,” Affleck said.

The Tender Bar actor added that he’s OK with some of the memes and criticisms that he received. But he needs to draw a line when it comes to comments that can affect his family.

“That’s not true. I don’t believe that. It’s the exact opposite of who I am. What I believe and I would never want my kids to think that I would ever say a bad word about their mom,” he said.
