A Source Says Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Are Fighting Over Finalizing The Purchase Of That $64 Million Home After Dropping Out Of Escrow
Ben Affleck is a man who seems to know what he wants–whether it’s a watered-down iced coffee, just going the fuck home already, or a $64 million Pacific Palisades place to call home. But Jennifer Lopez is JLo, and being complacent and settling for only the third or fourth mega-mansion you’ve dropped out of escrow on would be setting the bar too Lo. And while most of the time, Ben seems happy to go with the JFlow and spend his days pretend-slumming it at Dunkin‘ and hanging out with his ex-wife’s super cool burger boyfriend, a source says he’s digging his heels in and wants to finalize the purchase of the $64 million Pacific Palisades estate, so he has a stable place for his struggle packages to be delivered to even though Jen has fallen out of love with it and wants to continue the search for the perfect enormous, cold warehouse to fill with her non-negotiable white roses and delusions of living the perfect love story.
OK! says Ben and Jen are at odds again. Ben fell in love with this house, and it’s close to Jennifer Garner and his kids, and he wants to stop the insanity of the touring house after house and burning through inspection cash. His missus, on the other hand, probably wants to ride this career house-hunting stunt until the wheels fall off or until she finds the biggest, best estate California has to offer; she can’t stop. This house hunt is “her…now.”
According to an insider, the Argo alum has been eager to finalize the deal on the latest estate he’s in contract to buy with his new wife. They’ve already pulled out of escrow four times before on different properties in the last year — which has cost them thousands of dollars in inspections.
The house the Hollywood power couple are currently in final negations for is an eight-bedroom, 14-bathroom, property with nearly 16,000-square-feet. The land is also conveniently located down the street from the Air actor’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner‘s — with whom he shares children Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and 10-year-old son Samuel — place in Brentwood.
“Ben is fighting for it. He really wants this house,” a source explained of Affleck wanting to go through with their purchase of the $64 million Pacific Palisades estate. However, Lopez has yet to be convinced it’s their perfect love nest.
Ben and JLo could’ve already bought a Pacific Palisades home, knocked it down, and custom-built something up to JLo’s unreasonable expectations at this point. I have a feeling Ben might lose this one, though. I mean, would you want to cross someone with this soul-searing glare?
