Hollywood hunk Ben Affleck was horrified when he discovered former fiancee Jennifer Lopez had married her latest lover just five months after they split, according to friends.
The Jersey Girl stud - who dated the Maid In Manhattan star for 18 months - has so far made little public comment about J.Lo's shock marriage to fellow singer Marc Anthony. But close friends say the Gigli heart-throb was devastated by the news of Lopez's third marriage, believing it came too soon after their passionate relationship floundered. A source tells American magazine In Touch Weekly, "At first, Ben was shocked, sort of bowled over, like he'd been run over by a truck. He couldn't believe it - only five months after the split. It's like pouring salt in the wound."
