The alleged crisis in the relationship between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck remains one of the hottest topics in the world of show business. A British tabloid informant claims the actor is accompanied by "piercing sadness." There have also been the first speculations about a return to addiction...

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met over two decades ago on a film set and, shortly after that, announced to the world that they would walk down the aisle. However, it came to nothing—despite grand plans, the passionate feelings of the star couple faded in 2004. To the fans' surprise, several years later, the news broke that "Bennifer" was back. Following the saying "old love never dies," in the summer of 2022, J. Lo and Ben tied the knot again. Since that moment, gossip portals have been closely watching their every move. Although many believed that their love idyll would last longer this time, many signs suggest that dark clouds have gathered over Lopez and Affleck's relationship. For several weeks, foreign tabloids have been racing to speculate about a marital crisis and are already predicting a divorce for the star couple.

Ben Affleck has returned to drinking in the face of a marital crisis?

According to the latest reports from America, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have not been living together for several weeks. In addition, they have put their shared villa worth around $65 million up for sale. Moreover, the "Pearl Harbor" star is increasingly seen in his ex-wife's company. According to the findings of "In Touch" magazine, Jennifer Garner "has dropped everything to make sure Ben doesn't spiral out of control again." Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Affleck has been accompanied by "piercing sadness" in recent weeks. Mention was also made of the risk of the 51-year-old returning to addiction, and one informant claimed that, due to recent worries, J.Lo's husband has already reached for a drink.

I hear that he is drinking. He is full of demons – a really troubled person—one informant supposedly relayed.

I have seen him looking glassy-eyed, and it is a real worry to everyone who cares about him—another Daily Mail source noted.
