Hollywoodlife.com claims Alex Rodriguez is trying to avoid reading anything about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. A source tells the website, “Alex is burying himself in his work and trying to finalize his deal on buying the Minnesota Timberwolves so that has thankfully taken him away from his feelings on the breakup with Jen, but it’s been a little rough because his feelings are still strong for her. It stung that Jennifer was with Ben in Miami, it was a little too close for comfort because it’s still so fresh for him.''
The National Enquirer claims Jennifer Garner has allegedly banned Ben Affleck from introducing their kids to Jennifer Lopez. A source tells the magazine, “He spent years telling everyone what a disaster that period of his life with J.Lo was, and now he’s gone running back to her like an attention-starved puppy! Affleck jumped at the chance to reunite with lost love J.Lo. Jen finds the whole situation troubling and sad because she knows how vulnerable and lost Ben must be right now. His behavior is seriously off, but what can she do? He’s going through with this no matter what people think, but it will never have her approval. It was fine for him to let them meet Ana (deArmas), because that was a serious relationship. But J.Lo is a totally different situation, and for now she wants Ben to keep his family life and this attention-seeking circus totally separate”
