Interestingly, Lopez, Affleck and Garner were not photographed in the same frame, but they must have been close to each other inside the graduation when their children were reunited.

The day before, Affleck met up with Garner, who hugged his mother. During that meeting, he saw Ben carefree and smiling.

Affleck was reportedly last with JLo on Sunday when they had a four-hour meeting at the $60 million Bel Air mansion they are reportedly putting up for sale.

He already lives in a $100,000-a-month rental near Garner, while Lopez is believed to still be in the mega-mansion with her children.

Also on Wednesday, DailyMail.com reported that Ben has been drinking alcohol again amid his tense situation with Jennifer.

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, friends say the actor, who has battled alcoholism and gambling addiction for decades, is suffering “acute sadness” as his marriage collapses.

They claim Affleck is “at risk” of falling off the wagon or has already started drinking again.

One says: ‘I heard you’re drinking. He is full of demons, he is a really troublesome person.’

While another adds: “I’ve seen him with glassy eyes and he’s a real worry for everyone who cares about him.”

Affleck’s representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

The revelation comes as J.Lo insiders also reveal that her mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez, has now “turned against” Affleck, despite initially encouraging her daughter to rekindle romance with “Bennifer” in 2022 .

I understand that the 54-year-old singer’s manager, Benny Medina, also “openly dislikes” Affleck.

A source said: “I understand he has left the marriage, but she has yet to accept the truth of the situation and believes that with therapy they could achieve this.”

“This is further complicated by the fact that this is about the emotions of the five children they have between them,” the source added. ‘The reasons why it hasn’t worked are many, but when you lose J.Lo’s family, you lose J.Lo. His mother and his sisters are against him and so is Benny (Medina).

J.Lo also recently rekindled her friendship with actress Leah Remini. The couple reportedly fell out in 2022 after Remini told her that Affleck was not properly committed to her romance and that he would end up hurting her.

Affleck said he first stopped drinking in 1997.

Then he said, ‘I just wanted to stop. I started to regret some things I did when I was drunk. It’s funny to be nasty or out of control, but then it’s like, “I think I hurt that person’s feelings,” or “I made a fool of myself,” or “I didn’t want to kiss that girl.” I have almost no inhibitions, so it’s dangerous for me.’

He sought treatment for alcoholism in 2001 and went to rehab again in 2017 and 2018. The following year there was a setback when he was photographed leaving a Halloween party drunk.

In 2020 he said: “People with compulsive behaviors, and I’m one of them, have this kind of basic discomfort all the time that they try to make it go away.” You’re trying to feel better by eating, drinking, having sex, gambling, shopping, or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse.

Then you do more to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain begins. It becomes a vicious cycle that cannot be broken. At least that’s what happened to me.
