Ben Affleck reportedly hired agents in a bid to protect fiance Jennifer Lopez. The types of security employed by Britney Spears, *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake, and Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs were criticized, appearing to be more for status than real protection. Puff Daddy, who is always escorted by over 10 “grimy Harlem guys from the street, some of whom are ex-cons,” says a source close to Combs. His team has been known to start more fights than stop them.
