LATEST: Jennifer Lopez' ex-manager Benny Medina has blamed Ben Affleck for causing the rift between them that eventually led to his sacking.

Medina was fired by J.LO last month (11JUN03) after a five-year association with the actress and singer, and he reckons that her romance with her Jersey Girl co-star is to blame for his dismissal.

He has now launched a vitriolic attack on the hunky Changing Lanes actor, charging him with "changing" Lopez.

Medina snipes, "All aspects of her world started to change when she got involved with Ben Affleck.

"The relationship with Ben is completely different to her others. With PUFFY there was no problems. With Cris Judd we all got along and respected each other.

"I have seen her behaviour with other people and I should have assumed one day it would happen to me."
