Jennifer Lopez's Marriage To Ben Affleck Failed Because Of Her 'Love Addiction', Says Hollywood Producer

Jennifer Lopez's Marriage To Ben Affleck Didn't Work Because She Has A 'Love Addiction', Says Hollywood Producer

Is Jennifer Lopez‘s “love addiction” the reason for her rumored split from Ben Affleck??

As the couple has faced increasingly intense divorce rumors for weeks now, many sources have been blaming the spotlight for the marital woes. But now some insiders are turning toward J.Lo’s romantic history as a red flag! On Sunday night’s special TMZ Investigates: JLo and Ben: Missed Warning Signs, film producer Jon Peters sat down with TMZ host Harvey Levin to discuss what may have gone wrong in the two-year marriage. The 79-year-old Hollywood legend — who worked with Jen VERY early in her career in the movie Money Train — was adamant, saying:

“She’s a love and sex addict, look at the men she’s been with. She can’t be alone. She needs a man in her life, she has never spent any real time developing herself.”

The pop star has been linked to numerous men in the last few decades. He’s not wrong about that.

You can read more about her romantic history HERE. But in short… J.Lo was first married to producer Ojani Noa in 1997, but they split after less than a year. She then dated Diddy for two years from 1999 to 2001. Then came Cris Judd who she married in 2001 and divorced in 2002 — when she first linked up with Ben before breaking up and calling off their engagement in 2004. But she wasn’t single for long because she married Marc Anthony in 2004 and welcomed two children with him before breaking up in 2011. She then dated dancer Beau “Casper” Smart on and off from 2014 until 2016 when rumors surfaced she was dating Drake. By 2017, she met Alex Rodriguez but they called off their wedding and split in 2021. And yes, then she got back with Ben!


This girl really has hardly been single — or at least that’s how it seems from the outside. So, is this the problem? It certainly could be! Dr. Drew, who among other things is still an addiction specialist, opened up about love addiction, which he insisted is very real. And like other addictions, it can ruin relationships. Noting “there are actually thousands of people engaged in 12-step programs who identify as love addicted,” the talk show host explained:

“The features of that include not having great boundaries, they tend to get sucked into relationships readily and easily, and what we would call falling hard for people, and once they go in they can’t get themselves out.”

Based on Jenny from the Block‘s past, this seems to track! But Peters (who was played hilariously by Bradley Cooper in Licorice Pizza btw) thinks there’s another element at play as well. It’s something he calls “quantum entanglement” — when “you can’t live without each other, your leg is her leg, and his leg [is her leg].” He suggested there’s just one way to maintain this kind of codependent relationship, saying:

“You can [maintain it] if you continue to work and evolve, if you don’t you overload.”

Hmm… Lots of sources have been claiming the relationship struggles the couple is facing today are the same as their first relationship attempt. So, this could certainly be one of the roadblocks they’re facing! See the men discuss this love addiction theory more to decide for yourself (below)!

Reactions, Perezcious readers?! Do U think this could be the cause for relationship struggles? Or is something else tearing them apart? Let us know (below)!
