Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s seemingly harmonious blended family relationship with Ben’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner has reportedly hit a rough patch, with insiders suggesting that jealousy and tensions have flared up.
According to sources cited in OK magazine, Lopez is allegedly feeling intense jealousy over the deep connection between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. This jealousy has reportedly led to Lopez asking Affleck to make adjustments in his relationship with Garner. The insiders claim that Lopez becomes enraged when she feels jealous or threatened, and Affleck has faced her anger as a result. Lopez is said to have demanded that Affleck spend less time with Garner and prioritize their relationship instead.
During an alleged heated argument, the source claimed that Lopez even shouted at Affleck, “‘She’s your ex-wife for a reason!'”
The insider further alleged that Lopez communicated her feelings to Garner, and the two exchanged texts about the situation, which led to heated discussions. The tensions between Lopez and Garner reportedly caused some planned get-togethers as a blended family to be canceled.
Lopez and Affleck have a history dating back to 2002 when they first began dating. After their relationship ended in 2004, Affleck married Garner in 2005, and they have three children together. Despite their divorce in 2018, Garner and Affleck remained on good terms and co-parented their children.

The reports of tension within the blended family come amidst the spotlight on Lopez and Affleck’s high-profile relationship and their efforts to navigate their respective pasts and present together.
