The ENQUIRER's bombshell articles about Ben Affleck's cheating on Jennifer Lopez at a strip club have sparked a massive cover-up attempt by Affleck, the club and the strippers who work there.

The issue that goes on sale Friday reveals why Ben's romp with strippers could get Brandi's closed down or fined, how Ben is scrambling for excuses to hold together his romance with J.Lo ...and much more.
