Jennifer Lopez Broke Up Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Ridiculous Source Claims

by at .

By now you've probably heard more than a few wacky rumors regarding Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce.

There's been the run-of-the-mill Ben drinks and gambles too much stuff, but there are also some more out-there theories for the tin foil hat crowd.

For example, have you heard the one about how Matt Damon drove Jen and Ben apart? Yup, that's something people are actually saying.

There's been so much absurd chatter surrounding the end of this marriage that we can't even pass it all along. (Trust us, most of it isn't worth your time.) 

But every once in a while, a gem comes along that's simply too good to ignore, such as the ridiculous claim made today by the (n)ever-reliable UK tabloid the Sun.

Apparently, an insider tells the Sun that Ben has remained friends with Jennifer Lopez in the years since they dated, and Jen 2 (Garner) was initially cool with it.

But after Affleck was spotted getting flirty with Lopez at the Oscars, Garner did some digging and discovered that the exes had been spending more time together than she realized.

Needless to say, Garner was pissed, and the ensuing argument led to the silent treatment, which was followed by divorce.

The Sun even goes so far as to claim that the Bennifer 2.0 breakup is just the first step in Affleck and Lopez getting back together.

“Everyone is talking about J-Lo and Ben and saying it’s inevitable they will get together again at some point," says the insider. “We call them the Richard Burton and Liz Taylor of Hollywood."

Wouldn't Richard Burton and Liz Taylor be the Richard Burton and Liz Taylor of Hollywood?

Anyway, we highly doubt a Lopez-Affleck reunion is in the cards (if for not other reason than J-Lo is already in a serious relationship).

So we guess you'll just have to get your early-2000s nostalgia fix somewhere else. Maybe Hot Topic is having a sale on trucker hats or something.
