After his apology, a video from 2004 came out. Ben can clearly be seen nuzzling a woman and whispering loudly in here ear, “You usually show a lot more cleavage than this. What’s the story? Why are you covering it up today… Even when you’re in church you should have that rack on display.” He continued to lay his head on her chest and make her giggle.

Later in the day, a makeup artist tweeted, “I would love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014.”

Could this be why Tyrese hates The Rock so much? Tyrese has enough to worry about considering he has an upcoming court battle with his ex-wife who is alleging he physically abused their 10 year-old daughter. A judge recently ruled that Tyrese’s 1- year-old daughter can be called to testify in court.
