Jennifer Lopez denies being mad at Ben Affleck for Jennifer Garner divorce comments


Washington: Despite media reports that Jennifer Lopez took offense at Ben Affleck’s comments relating to his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, the singer-songwriter has clarified that the rumors are completely off-base.

Speaking to People magazine, Lopez said that “this story is absolutely not true. It’s not how I feel.” “I couldn’t have more respect for Ben as a father, a co-parent and a person,” she said of Affleck, with whom she rekindled a romantic relationship earlier this year .

For his part, Affleck, who shares daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel with Garner, also took issue with the narrow focus of coverage of his comments on the “Howard Stern Show.”

During the interview, an extensive and candid discussion about his past struggles with fame, love, parenthood, and alcohol, the actor spoke of a time in his life when his marriage to Garner was faltering, to a large extent. Explaining, “Part of why I started drinking… because I was stuck.”

Affleck on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ But clarified it in a later interview. that he would “never want my children to think that I would ever say a bad word about their mother.”

The ‘Tender Bar’ star told Kimmel he was trying to convey in his conversation with Stern “how much we respect each other and care about each other and care about our kids.” And put them first.” Instead, he said he came across as “the worst, most insensitive, stupidly terrible guy” in the media.

Lopez, for one, fully supports Affleck and feels that any negative attributes of the rumors about her and her anger for the Stern interview are off the mark. A source close to the couple agreed, adding that the pair are “in a really great place and really happy.”

Affleck shared to Stern that in 2004, 17 years after the couple called off their engagement, they made sure to consider their children before resuming things with Lopez.

“Was there any hesitation on your part, because you’re a father now?” Stern asked Affleck. “It definitely popped into my mind,” Affleck told Stern about coming back with Superstar, adding, “I have the biggest responsibility I have for my kids. I don’t want to do anything that’s bad for them.” be painful or devastating if I can help.”

Ultimately, of course, both Affleck and Lopez took the leap and worked hard to dynamically incorporate their children into their relationship.

For Lopez, who has twins Max and Emme, both 13 years old, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, it’s always an exciting time of year. “For Jennifer, Christmas is about the kids. She loves Christmas and makes it so special for her!” According to People magazine, a source close to the couple said.
