Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have allegedly called it quits.
In its Jan. 10 issue, Woman’s Day claimed that Lopez was forced to end her relationship with Affleck following the backlash she received for supporting the actor.
Weeks ago, Lopez proved how loyal she is to Affleck when she continued to stand by his side in the wake of his comments against Jennifer Garner.
However, Lopez’s refusal to publicly put Affleck in his place did not sit well with her fans who decided to stop supporting her if she won’t call it quits with the actor.
“Most of the industry expected J.Lo to be absolutely furious about Ben’s, quite frankly, sexist comments about his wife and mother of his children. So, when he came out being fully supportive and respectful, a few people close to her buried their heads in their hands,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that Lopez’s refusal to stand up against Affleck did not sit well for a lot of her fans because they always regarded her as an icon among women.
“Her publicity team wasn’t prepared for that and are kind of horrified. They’re worried she’s going to get canceled by woke America for siding with him over comments that have been a publicity nightmare for Ben. So, when J.Lo stood by him, it made it worse,” the source said.
Lopez’s PR team is allegedly in damage control to try and put the singer/actress on a pedestal. They are doing everything that they can to ensure that she will no longer be associated with Affleck.
However, the only way to make this happen is if Lopez would agree to split from Affleck. And that’s exactly what she did.
At the end of the day, Lopez’s decision to call it quits from the dad of three allegedly proved that her fame is more important than her relationship.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There’s no indication that Lopez and Affleck are no longer together.
In fact, the couple just spent the holidays together with their respective children.
It’s not also true that Lopez experienced what it’s like to be canceled by her fans because they are still supporting the singer/actress no matter what.
As for Affleck, the actor already explained his comments and he also apologized to his ex-wife.
