'I Was Trapped': Ben Affleck in Hot Water for Blaming Ex-Wife Jennifer Garner for His Alcoholism
“Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped … I was like, 'I can't leave because of my kids, but I'm not happy, what do I do?' And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution,” he said.
I know you desperately wants to win an award this season #benaffleck but don’t use your ex-wife & your kids to get one. It’s not Jennifer Garner’s fault for your drinking. You have been an alcoholic BEFORE your marriage, during & AFTER. #drunk https://t.co/qL1dfMSePW— Elpha #wearAmask# (GameFace) (@ElphaGame) December 15, 2021
Ben Affleck blaming his addiction on being unhappy in a marriage is manipulative and a sad attempt at justifying HIS actions.Don’t victim blame. Jennifer Garner was also in a terrible marriage, but she learned classical ballet instead of drinking a bottle a night 🙃 end rant.— Ashley Christine (@Ash_Christine_) December 15, 2021
So because Ben Affleck felt trapped in his marriage to Jennifer Garner he started drinking and then sleeping with the nanny (he left the nanny bit out).— girl (@twa96) December 15, 2021
He felt so trapped in his marriage that 3yrs after they separated, Jennifer had to drive him to rehab. pic.twitter.com/4H3jad0YNI
Ben Affleck blaming his wife (Jennifer Garner) for his drinking problem tells me everything I need to know about him. JLo, you've got yourself a real catch there. Once a dickhead, always a dickhead.— Julie (turning AZ Blue) Cohn 🌊 (@JulieKCohn) December 15, 2021
