More scuttlebutt on Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s failed marriage … and this is a doozy: J.Lo’s mom reportedly sought support from ex-fiance Ben Affleck prior to the split.
Mama Guadalupe Lopez “reached out to Ben via email. She wanted advice for Jennifer,” a source told Us magazine.
“She always liked and trusted him. [Ben] replied back on email, wished her well and offered what he could,” relays the insider of the actor, who is now (like Jennifer) a parent of two, in his case with wife Jennifer Garner.
“It was a very bad marriage, and Jennifer got the courage to end things,” says an insider, adding that crooner Marc — rumored to have been controlling of his diva wife’s fashion choices — “was a terrible husband.”
Another friend says Jennifer, who was reportedly paid $1 million to perform at a party in the Ukraine on Tuesday night, “actually has low self-esteem,” despite her bombshell rep. “And Marc really played into that insecurity. That’s why she put up with his abuse for such a long time.”
Either this really was a terrible marriage, or Team Jennifer is really good at spin control. Or maybe it’s some combination of the two.
Paris’ ‘Moment Passed’?
Is Paris Hilton so five minutes ago? An interviewer asked her as much — and the socialite stormed off camera.
When “Good Morning America” referenced former BFF Kim Kardashian’s popularity and Paris’ new Oxygen reality show’s low ratings, then queried “Do you ever worry about your moment having passed?”, the heiress wasn’t happy. She snickered, then abruptly left her chair.
Paris returned to declare, “I’ve been doing this for 15 years now, so just like any other businessperson or someone in the industry, it’s always important to reinvent yourself and come up with new projects.” For good measure, she hugged her interviewer.
Note to Paris: If you’re looking to prove that you’re not worried about your moment being over … you probably shouldn’t bolt in indignation when asked about it.
Things must be getting serious between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux — the former “Friends” star introduced her man to her dad, Life&Style magazine reports.
The actress allegedly brought the actor-screenwriter to meet her father Victor Kiriakis — oops! We mean John Aniston! — at L.A.’s Delmonico’s Steak and Lobster House earlier this month. And it appears the “Days of Our Lives” star approved of his daughter’s date, despite her jitters.
“Jen’s a regular here and normally very relaxed,” an eyewitness said. “This time she seemed more on edge. She was smiling a lot, but you could tell this was a special event for her.”
“John looked very protective of Jen, and when Justin went to the restroom, he put his hand on top of hers,” the onlooker relayed. “It was sweet.”
After sharing wine and seafood, the trio reportedly lingered over coffee (Jen) and port (John and Justin).
Aww ... sounds like someone passed the parent test!
