The relationship woes come at a difficult time for Lopez after she announced she wouldn't be participating in her concerts after all. "Canceling her tour may be a show of sacrifice to Jennifer, but no one thinks it’ll be enough to win Ben back," the insider added.

"She still thinks she and Ben are meant to be together and the feeling is she’s just tolerating this unpleasantness until Ben realizes the same thing," a separate source explained of the pair, who married in 2022.

In 2020, the Boston native got candid about his battle with addiction. "It took me a long time to fundamentally, deeply, without a hint of doubt, admit to myself that I am an alcoholic," he explained in an interview. "The next drink will not be different."

"People with compulsive behavior, and I am one, have this kind of basic discomfort all the time that they're trying to make go away. You're trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or s-- or gambling or shopping or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse," Affleck added. "Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can't break. That's at least what happened to me."
