Jennifer Garner worried over gambling habits

Ben Affleck's reported card counting incident is supposedly causing marital problems with his concerned wife Jennifer Garner.

Alleged card counting and a gambling habit have left Ben Affleck in trouble in his marriage to Jennifer Garner, according to new reports.

After Affleck was accused of card counting and was asked to leave the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, his marriage to Garner has become negatively affected, RadarOnline claims. The actor's gambling habits have become overly serious and Garner is very concerned.

Garner even insisted on going with him on his recent gambling trip because she supposedly feels Affleck is just way out of control.

"Jen demanded to go to Vegas with Ben because she doesn't trust him," an insider told Star magazine. Shortly before that, an internal email was sent from the Games Protection Manager at the Wynn and Encore casinos in Las Vegas warning recipients about Affleck's card counting antics. It was just a few days after this warning that the Hard Rock incident took place.

Apparently, a surveillance video of Affleck doing the counting deed has surfaced after it began to be circulated along with the warnings against the Argo star.

An eyewitness claims that as Affleck played cards at the table, Garner was sitting next to him watching and looking annoyed.

"After Ben had been playing for about an hour the pit boss started making phone calls," the onlooker said. "Then, shortly after, security confronted Ben. He was told he needed to leave and was escorted out."

As the pair made their way out of the casino, Garner reportedly looked "embarrassed and ashamed" as she kept her head down. Once in their hotel room, she allegedly "screamed at him, telling him he needed to quit gambling for good." But, he said he knew what he was doing and would continue to "do what he wants."
