Ben Affleck has allegedly been spending thousands of dollars to keep his girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez interested in him.

In its April 11 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Affleck’s friends are worried about him and his spending habits. After all, he’s been spending so much for Lopez.

A source also claimed that Affleck’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner is especially concerned because they have three minor children together.

“Jen’s worry is he’s spending way too much money to impress his girlfriend, and she hates the idea of him being taken advantage of. She acts respectful on the surface but it’s through gritted teeth,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that Garner and Affleck’s pals believe that he’s spending way over his means right now. And more money has been flying out of his bank accounts in the past year, and it’s not matching what’s coming in.

“Sure, he’s a mega-wealthy celebrity, but a lot of his net worth is tied up in investments or retirement funds. He doesn’t have the cash flow to be plunking down tens of millions on new homes and flying on private jets,” the source said.

Even though Affleck and Garner ended their marriage seven years ago, sources claimed that the actress is still concerned about her ex-husband. In fact, The Adam Project star also feels that she needs to look out for Affleck.

Unfortunately, when Garner tried to open up the topic with Affleck, the latter allegedly acted defensively. After all, the only thing that he cares about right now is making Lopez happy.

“Whatever they do, Ben always picks the tab because he wants to be the man. When they went to Europe last summer, the amount of money he spent was obscene. He doesn’t seem to care this wild spending is eating away at his fortune,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.

There’s no indication that Affleck has been spending most of his money on Lopez or that he’s always the one paying for their dates. Saying this makes it seem as though Lopez doesn’t have her own money.

It is also important to note that Lopez is worth so much more than Affleck. So, it’s unlikely for the Marry Me actress to take advantage of her boyfriend this way.

And since the couple isn’t dealing with issues relating to money, there’s also no reason for Garner to be worried.
