What an unlikely but sweet story!
According to TMZ, Lopez floated about
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah,
bat banned man!
Ben Affleck has reportedly been banned form the Hard Rock Casino for counting cards while playing blackjack!!!
It all started when he took his wifey Jennifer Garner to Sin City earlier this week, a supposed romantic getaway before his upcoming long, hard Batman shoot in Detroit.
We don't know if those two lovebirds got down and dirty in their hotel room, but what happened on the casino floor was anything but romantic!!
The Oscar-winning movie star was playing blackjack at a high rollers table when security suddenly appeared out of nowhere and kicked his perfectly chiseled butt off the table!
Apparently security labeled Benny Buns an "advantage player" after they spotted him counting cards, and banned him from the casino for his entire friggin' life!!
While counting cards isn't technically illegal, it's definitely frowned down upon in Las Vegas. If a casino catches someone doing it they will more than likely kick them out and — if Hollywood movies are to be believed — even rough them up in the process!
We aren't sure whether Ben broke the Hard Rock's bank earlier this week, but he has won truck-loads of money there before! Some reports say he fleeced their casino for $800,000 back in 2001. Wow!!!
This story is just insane!! So far Ben's camp has yet to comment, but we can't wait to hear the card shark speak!
UPDATE: New reports say Ben wasn't banned from the entire casino; he was only from the Hard Rock's blackjack tables. Security was apparently super cordial with the actor, too. So that's nice!
