The tabloid’s unnamed source claimed that Jennifer Garner’s ex-husband knew that Rodriguez wouldn’t take his comments well, but he still pushed through with it.
“Ben had to know that if he gushed about Jen in the article, it would get under Alex’s skin and it did. In A-Rod’s opinion, Ben should move on, stay quiet, and back off,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that Lopez poured out her heart to Affleck, and she also told him about her problems with Rodriguez. And Affleck used this as an opportunity to pursue his ex-girlfriend again.
“Ben knows Jen and Alex are having relationship issues. A-Rod believes that talking about how great Jen is part of Ben’s plan to win back his ex after 17 years,” the source said.
Unfortunately, Rodriguez won’t, allegedly, go down without a fight. In fact, he isn’t taking Affleck and Lopez’s close relationship lightly.
“He’s determined not to give Jen any reason to think about running back to Ben,” the source said.
