Frequent gambling has Ben Affleck on very thin ice with his wife, Jennifer Garner! The Oscar winner has been hitting up the MotorCity Casino Hotel quite often while in Michigan filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Jen is not pleased.
“He’s here for hours on end and never leaves happy,” a casino source tells Star.
Originally, the Draft Day star planned to join her husband in Michigan, along with their three kids, but an insider says she’s suddenly decided to change her plans. “She just doesn’t want to be Ben’s enabler or babysitter,” the pal explains. “She is completely distraught over Ben’s problems. It’s a never-ending roller coaster.”
And Jen may have reason to be worried, as her hubby once again got booted from a casino, this time in Windsor, Ontario (Star first reported on May 19 that the 41-year-old was banned from the blackjack tables at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for counting cards). This time, an eyewitness says, “Ben sat down and played for roughly 20 minutes before security heard he was there. They made the dealers stop what they were doing and asked him to leave.”
The problem is getting so bad, that some people around the Argo star are wondering if he needs to seek treatment for a gambling addiction! “He needs to ask for help from someone,” our source dishes. “And soon.”
