While Matthew McConaughey credits his wife, Camila Alves, for inspiring his career revival, he doesn’t want her to have the same success.

After her recent hosting gigs on E! and appearances on Today, a source says Matthew, 45, asked Camila, 33, to slow down. “He’d rather she focus on family life,” the source says.

The couple’s rep denies it, but the source insists that Matthew’s ideas are causing “nonstop fights” that have become so bitter, friends fear a split.

“At this point,” the source says, “they have major problems to work through.”

Earlier this year, Star reported that Zac Efron made an out-of-nowhere comment to his pal’s wife, Camila Alves, regarding her new hairstyle on social media. Camila’s tweet read: “Big thanks to @traceycolorist, best colorist in the world!” she wrote, along with a photo of the new ‘do. “Hope you like it as much as I do!” Efron then commented, “Love it!”

Matt and Camila share two sons and one daughter all under the age of 10: Livingston, Levi, and Vida.
