BEN BENCHES A-ROD
‘Get my wife’s name outta your @$& mouth!’
JEALOUS Ben Affleck is playing hardball with Alex Rodriguez after the former
Yankee slugger started gushing about Ben’s wife — and his exgirlfriend — Jennifer Lopez, The National ENQUIRER has learned. A-Rod, 47, threw a curve into Ben and Jen’s marriage when he said on Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace: “With Jennifer, look, it was a good experience. I wish her and the children, who are smart, and beautiful and wonderful — I wish them the very best.” Though sources say Alex has been a gentleman when
it comes to J.Lo, the bad blood between him and Ben lingers. “Some folks think Alex is still holding out for when Ben and Jen inevitably implode so he can swoop back in,” says an insider. A-Rod’s relationship with
J.Lo, 53, came between her first engagement with Ben, 50, in 2004 and their two wedding ceremonies this year.
“Ben sees Alex as a massive threat,” confides the insider. “He’s putting the word out for him to ‘shut up and stay away.’”
