Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini were close friends for years before her 2022 marriage to Ben Affleck.

Apparently, the pals originally stopped speaking when Remini voiced concerns about the Batman actor.

The Glory Daze star allegedly warned Lopez about the reason she originally broke up with the Gone Girl star in 2004.

“Because he is selfish and is not fully committed as a partner,” the source shared, noting “J.Lo was so mad, she cut off all ties.”

Remini was then not invited to the couple’s wedding in 2022.

"He’s been checked out," the source dished of Affleck, noting how the pair have been on "two completely different pages most of the time. The honeymoon phase has worn off."

"Both have demanding careers that often require them to be in different cities," the insider explained of the duo, as Lopez has been working in NYC while Affleck has been filming The Accountant 2 in California.

Their time apart allegedly "highlighted the emotional and physical distance between them."

"Over time, Jennifer and Ben found it increasingly difficult to communicate effectively and small misunderstandings grew into significant arguments. They have fundamentally different approaches to conflict," the source continued of the pair, who got back together in 2021 after calling off their first engagement in 2004.
