Jennifer Lopez says she’s not upset with Ben Affleck after he did an interview blaming ex-wife Jennifer Garner for his alcohol problems.
“This story is simply not true,” Lopez told People. “That’s not how I feel. I couldn’t have had more respect for Ben as a father, a co-parent and a person,” she added.
In the interview, Affleck said, “Part of the reason why I started drinking was because I was trapped,” he said. “I was like, ‘I can’t leave for my baby, but I’m not happy, what should I do?’ And what I did was drink a bottle of Scotch and fall asleep in the chair, which turned out not to be the solution.”
“[Lopez] “A source told Page Six that he is furious.” She’s being drawn into this because she’s dating him. She doesn’t want to be dragged into this.” The source added, “She has met Jennifer Garner. She’s trying to get to know her and Ben’s kids. It was his recklessness and cavalierness. ”
