After working together on several films in the early 2000s, Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck were totally buds. But the bromance is over and Smith is pointing fingers.

When asked if Affleck would be in town to make an appearance as Batman at this year's Comic-Con, Smith responded, "Great question. I don't know because we're not f***ing tight. I have not been [close with him] in decades," according to Yahoo Celebrity.

It seems as if Smith is a little bitter about his friendship going south and he wasn't done elaborating on the situation. "That's old Ben. He's got a wife that don't care for me at all. And plus, honestly, he probably don't care for me anymore. He's a triple A-list movie star and s*** like that. If he's Jimmy Carter, I'm Billy Carter, to put it in '70s terms. And I'm not even related and s***."

This isn't the first time as of late that a former friend has called out a member of the Garner/Affleck union. Just last month, Mark Ruffalo, who co-starred with Garner in 13 Going On 30 in 2004, said that the two are no longer in touch and his reason why sounds a bit similar to Smith's. "We had a great time together, and I think we would," he said to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. "But then Ben [Affleck] came on the scene and that was the end of that."

As if controlling relationships outside of their marriage isn't bad enough, there have also been rumors that Affleck's gambling habit has gotten out of control and is causing issues with Garner. Affleck was escorted out of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino last spring after being accused of counting cards and Garner was reportedly mortified. According to a source, the couple, who have three children together, got in an argument upon returning to their hotel room and the actress screamed at her husband, telling him "he needed to quit gambling for good."
