Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez relationship puts ‘kids in the public eye,’ Jennifer Garner is not a fan: source

Jennifer Garner apparently isn’t a fan of the spotlight currently on her children.

“Jennifer Garner felt blindsided by Ben’s relationship with JLO,” a source told Fox News Digital. “She doesn’t like her kids in the public eye so much, and that’s been hard for her.”

Another source claimed Garner doesn’t like the constant attention around her kids because of Jennifer Lopez’s fame.

Representatives for Affleck, Garner, and Lopez did not return Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Affleck and Lopez’s marriage has been thrust into the spotlight as speculation about an impending divorce began months ago. The “Let’s Get Loud” singer has been photographed frequently throughout the last weeks and was recently spotted with her child, Emme. Lopez shares 16-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Meanwhile, Affleck spent Tuesday with his mom and Garner, whom he shares three kids with; Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12.

Lopez and Affleck have reportedly been quietly trying to sell their $60.8 million Beverly Hills estate while dealing with the media frenzy around their relationship.

“Ben never liked the house. It’s too far away from his kids,” a source told People magazine and added, “The house is way too big for [Lopez].”

Lopez and Affleck have been living separately, a source previously confirmed to Fox News Digital.

“At first it was a whirlwind of love, and now that real life is setting in, it’s hard,” the insider claimed. “They are both involved in each other’s kids’ lives and consider themselves one big family unit, so it’s been hard for everyone.”

Rumors of a separation intensified after Affleck skipped out on the Met Gala with Lopez. The singer showed up solo for the event, which she co-chaired. She has attended the gala 14 times but has only been a co-chair once.

Affleck’s filming schedule forced him to skip the star-studded charity event celebrating the opening of the 2024 Costume Institute exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Affleck is filming “The Accountant 2” in Los Angeles, a representative for the actor told Fox News Digital at the time.

While it is unclear what caused the reported rift between the couple, it seems they often butt heads over parenting style.

“They’ve had fights about differences of opinions on raising their kids,” a source told Fox News Digital. “They have very different parenting styles.”


Lopez recently blasted “negativity” as she shared a message about love in a newsletter sent to fans on June 5. While thanking them for making her film, “Atlas,” number one worldwide again, Lopez chose to touch on the “negativity out in the world.”

“It may seem like there’s a lot of negativity out in the world right now…but don’t let the voices of a few drown out that there is soooo much love out there,” she wrote.

Lopez’s comments followed the cancelation of her “THIS IS ME…LIVE” tour.

Representatives for Live Nation explained Lopez would be “taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends.”

“I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down,” Lopez wrote in her previous newsletter. “Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary. I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time…”

There has been no information released about rescheduling the tour.
