Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com weighed in on the split between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. He writes, “Was anyone in favor of it? Affleck’s mother and friends objected to it. Lopez’s longtime manager was forced to endure a painful separation from his friend and client because of it. Affleck prostituted himself in Lopez’s music video. Lopez had to read about Affleck’s extra-curricular adventures in the tabloids.” Friedman added, “J.Lo and Ben will almost certainly blame overheated media attention for their break up, and they’ll be right to some extent. Us Weekly and The Star tabloid literally built whole careers and circulations on the ill-fated romance. But the couple courted the attention, too. As much as they said they hated the limelight, Affleck and Lopez were drawn to it, and ultimately it did them in.” Read more.
