Ben Affleck’s mother was reportedly rushed to hospital in a 120-mph ambulance where she was believed to have received stitches after an accident at her son’s Georgia estate.
A child was initially said to have injured his arm at the property, but a source has now told DailyMail.com that the mother of the ‘Batman’ star, Chris Anne Boldt, fell from scaffolding and cut her leg on the Riceboro site where Ben and Jennifer are holding a huge party this weekend to celebrate their recent wedding in Las Vegas.
Ben, 50, reportedly found his mother at his home on Friday afternoon and called an ambulance, while JLo, 53, was later seen following the medical emergency at the property.
The actor was also seen pacing and smoking a cigarette outside the building.
A source told DailyMail.com the incident was not “serious”.
The reassurance came after an ambulance pulled into Ben’s Riceboro property around noon and spent 20 minutes on the property before the Liberty County Medical Center vehicle raced north.
A source said the ambulance sometimes reached more than 120 mph as it flew over the highway under police escort.
The wedding party festivities were set to kick off with a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, but the flow of vans carrying music equipment and party favors was interrupted shortly after noon.
The hospital drama also came as the guests arrived for the afternoon events.
Another main ceremony is believed to take place on Saturday, with a family barbecue scheduled for Sunday.
Jennifer’s mother Guadalupe was seen arriving at Savannah Hilton Head International Airport on Thursday as preparations for the party began, including the installation of a huge white marquee on the lawn.
Ben bought the $8 million US, 86-acre estate in 2003.
Jennifer has had a difficult relationship with her 76-year-old mother, with the singer saying it was “complicated” in the past.
She also claimed that her mother “beat up” her as a child in her recent Netflix documentary “Halftime.”
JLo added: “She did what she had to do to survive, and it made her strong, but it also made her tough. She knocked the s*** out of you.”
About how she moved out of her family home at the age of 18 after an argument with her mother, JLo said, “My mother said, ‘If you live in this house, you get your education.
“We got into a big fight one night and I just left.”
