Jennifer Lopez reportedly wants Ben Affleck to repay the money she invested during their marriage. The couple, whose relationship has been under scrutiny amid persistent divorce rumors, appears to be facing financial disputes as well. According to an insider, Lopez, 54, feels Affleck, 51, owes her for covering most of their marital expenses.

The source told Radar Online that Lopez covered a significant portion of their shared costs, including private jet expenses, hotels, meals, clothing, and other daily expenditures. The insider claimed, "One of the little-known secrets is Jennifer paid for much of their marital expenses, and now she feels he owes her. She’s adding up all those private jet bills she put on her plastic, the hotels and meals, clothes, coffee runs, gas. The high cost of living was done on her dime. She paid the lion's share for that $60 million mansion they bought, too."

Lopez's financial demands reportedly stem from her belief that Affleck quit their marriage, leaving her feeling "seriously burned" and determined to seek retribution. "She’s demanding a full inventory of what she spent versus what he spent and wants all the money back she 'invested.' She isn’t the one who gave up on their marriage, and she’s feeling seriously burned and is out for blood," the insider alleged.

Despite their combined net worth — Lopez’s $400 million compared to Affleck’s $150 million — the financial strain appears to have taken a toll on their relationship. Another source suggested that their marital issues were exacerbated by differing views on parenting and finances. Lopez’s spending habits, in particular, were said to trouble Affleck. "Ben may be a gambler, but even he knows when to quit. Jennifer's spending is troubling him more and more," a source told In Touch.

The financial discord reportedly came to a head when the couple was house hunting. Affleck believed they would purchase a property worth around $20 million, but Lopez allegedly overruled him, opting for a $60 million mansion instead. "Their bills are through the roof. It's all eating away at their bank accounts. The pressure to make money keeps intensifying," the source claimed.

Adding to the financial strain, Lopez invested $20 million of her own money into producing "The Greatest Love Story Never Told," a project documenting her romance with Affleck. Her longtime producer and partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, admitted she was surprised by Lopez’s decision. "I was worried. 'Why are you sharing your story? It's too personal. Stop it.' It made me uncomfortable for her," Goldsmith-Thomas shared.

Affleck has reportedly moved out of their $60 million marital home and is currently residing in a rental property in Brentwood, close to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner’s residence. The couple shares three children: Violet, 18, Fin, 15, and Samuel, 12. Furthermore, Lopez and Affleck have put their marital mansion up for sale, signaling potential finality to their relationship.

Lopez seemingly fueled the divorce speculations over the weekend by sharing a throwback music video of her 2021 hit breakup song "Cambia el Paso." The move, coupled with reports of her demanding repayment from Affleck, paints a picture of a relationship strained by financial and personal conflicts.

As the rumors of their separation continue to swirl, it remains to be seen how the couple will navigate their financial and personal differences. For now, Lopez's demand for repayment adds a new layer of complexity to their already tumultuous relationship, reflecting the broader challenges faced by high-profile couples under the media spotlight.
