Jennifer Lopez Says She's Not Upset w/ Ben Affleck Over Comments About His Ex

Jennifer Lopez says she's not upset with Ben Affleck after he did an interview blaming his ex-wife Jennifer Garner for his alcohol problems.

"This story is simply not true," Lopez said to People. "It is not how I feel. I couldn't have more respect for Ben as a father, a co-parent, and a person," she added.

In the interview, Affleck said, "Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped," he said. "I was like, 'I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' And what I did was drank a bottle of Scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution."

"[Lopez] is pissed," a source told Page Six. "She is getting pulled into this because she is dating him. She doesn't want to be dragged into this." The source added, "She has met Jennifer Garner. She is trying to get to know her and Ben's kids. It's reckless and cavalier of him."
