Insiders tell RadarOnline.com that Ben Affleck has become a broken and bitter man now that his estranged wife Jen Garner has a newfound confidence and desire to finally move on with her life.
"She's got some strong people in her life who aren't letting him walk all over her anymore, and they convinced her to put herself first for a change," said a source.
As Radar reported, Garner continued her metamorphosis from miserably married to happily single with a very public dig at her estranged ex.
In her recent Vanity Fair interview, the 43-year-old actress slammed Affleck and the way he humiliated her and with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian.
"Ben did everything to stop that piece from coming out," noted the source.
Now, Affleck, 43, is feeling "angry and isolated," said the source. "He has to suck it up because Jen could destroy him at the drop of a hat if she wanted to."
Still, Affleck, who is currently promoting his new movie Batman v Superman and can't afford any more negative publicity, is beginning to see the error of his ways now that he's completely alone.
However, Affleck's epiphany is too little too late for Garner.
"He treated Jen so badly for years and totally had this coming," the source told Radar. "Its only now he's lost everything that Ben realizes how badly he screwed up."
