Ben Affleck “lost his cool” in public on Sunday night, June 23, outside the mansion he shared with wife Jennifer Lopez, according to photos obtained by TMZ.

According to TMZ, Affleck grew angry at the paparazzi photographers who were staking out the more than $60 million California mansion.

As the photographers’ cameras flashed light toward Affleck’s car, which he was in alone, he stopped the vehicle and walked toward them, TMZ reported, adding that Affleck got “right in the guy’s face,” referring to one of the photographers. Affleck told the photographers that their actions were dangerous, TMZ reported, describing him as having “lost his cool” and “scolding” the photographer “for basically blinding him as he’s driving.”

Affleck “angrily chews out” the photographers, TMZ’s headline says.

The encounter happened as Affleck and Lopez have been the subject of worldwide headlines about the state of their marriage. Lopez had been vacationing without her husband in Positano, Italy, where she was seen taking swimsuit selfies on a speedboat. The couple has not announced a split, but TMZ reported in early June that they were selling their marital home and that Affleck had moved into a rental property in Brentwood, leaving the couple separated.

Lopez has since traveled to Paris, France, for fashion shows, video shows.

Affleck also told the photographers that one of his daughters was at the house with him and was going to be driving down the hill from it soon too, TMZ reported.
