Ben Affleck Reveals What Caused '50 Percent' of His Jennifer Lopez Breakup

Emily Scarvie

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Ben Affleck discussed what led to his first breakup with Jennifer Lopez in 2004, saying the negative media attention around their relationship ultimately impacted them.

"I would say it was about 50% [of what destroyed our relationship]. The idea that people hate you and they hate you together and that being together is poison and ugly and toxic and the thing none of us want to be part of," Affleck told Stern. "And who the f-- would want to have them to dinner? And what the f-- are they doing together?"

The couple rekindled their romance earlier this year following J-Lo's breakup with former fiance Alex Rodriguez.
