Ben Affleck Blames Media For His First Breakup w/ Jennifer Lopez

Ben Affleck is blaming the media for his first breakup with Jennifer Lopez.

Bennifer were engaged between 2002 and 2004, but eventually called off the wedding plans before breaking up entirely.

"The idea that people hate you and they hate you together and that being together is poison and ugly and toxic and the thing none of us want to be part of," he said.

Social media has been dragging him after he blamed ex-wife Jennifer Garner for his drinking problems.

"We had a marriage that didn't work, this happens, with somebody that I love and respect, but to whom I shouldn't be married any longer," he said. "Ultimately, we tried. We tried, we tried because we had kids."

"I was like 'I can't leave 'cause of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?'" Affleck said. "What I did was drink a bottle of scotch and fall asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution."
