Six months after announcing his divorce from Jennifer Garner, friends claim Ben Affleck is "a shadow of his former self" — and could be headed for a breakdown!
"[He's] bloated, down and completely torn over what to do,” a pal reveals of the 43-year-old, who's conflicted over whether or not he wants to save his marriage.

Because of the stress it's causing him, the source says Jen agreed to put their divorce proceedings on hold until Ben's done shooting his new film, Live By Night.
“Jen’s been using the delay to try and fix things,” the friend tells Radar Online. “Ben can’t believe she even wants to give him another chance after how he’s behaved but she feels she should because of the kids (Violet, 10, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3).”
But nothing seems to be working. “Jen’s hoping he can pull himself together, but even she admits she’s being very optimistic,” the insider adds.
“He’s burnt her so many times and her friends are urging her to not give him any more chances. He’ll never change and he doesn’t deserve it.”
