These J.Lo And Ben Affleck Divorce Rumors Are Keeping Me Up At Night

There’s simply no way Bennifer can break up a second time. These people are supposed to be The Great Gen X Love Story! Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were madly in love in the early 2000s, called off their engagement due to the pressure of the public eye, and then found each other again 20 years later and exchanged vows. I mean, there are two J. Lo albums about it and there’s also an unhinged film about it and an equally unhinged documentary about that film. Not to mention, they’ve talked about their love in about five million interviews. Their romance is hard to miss.

After three failed marriages, J. Lo has really been embracing this narrative of Ben Is The One. But now, divorce rumors are beginning to surface. The singer and the actor weren’t seen together for quite some time, and sources have been sharing some concerning info about the status of their relationship. So, are Jennifer and Ben really breaking up? Here’s everything we know so far.

No separation or divorce has been confirmed! The rumors are just rumors for now. However, a source did tell Us Weekly that Bennifer 2.0 is “having issues in their marriage.” Oh dear. They continued, “They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour.” Apparently, J. Lo’s just super focused on work stuff and they are on “two completely different pages most of the time.”

Alsooo, she was spotted house hunting in Los Angeles last week, which could be telling. (J. Lo said that she was looking for an investment property… it’s possible, IG.) Another source revealed to Us Weekly that Ben has been living a in a separate home from J. Lo.

They were both spotted wearing their wedding rings out and about on May 16, but the next day, Ben was photographed driving without his wedding ring on his ring finger. Uh oh.

They’re Reportedly Working Through “Tension” In Their Marriage

On May 19, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Bennifer isn’t over yet, but they are working through some tension. “They have been staying in separate homes and the tension has been high,” the source revealed. “They are taking a second to figure out what each of them is going through and wants. Both of them have been very down.” I mean, we love some healthy communication.

They Went Seven Weeks Without Being Photographed Together

It seemed like there might be truth to the rumors when Ben and J. Lo weren’t photographed together for seven weeks. That’s a long time for an extremely public couple to not smile for the cameras together. You may have noticed that J. Lo recently attended the Met Gala solo. But as more and more headlines hinted at a possible split, Ben and J. Lo were finally spotted together on May 16, attending an event to support their kids.

J. Lo Liked A Post About Unhealthy Relationships


Umm, well this only adds fuel to the fire. J. Lo recently liked an Instagram post that lists all the reasons why you might not be able to “build a healthy relationship” with someone. The post discusses people who lack integrity and emotional safety, don’t respect your time, are bad at communication, etc. Did she find it relatable? Only time will tell, I suppose. Keep Bennifer in your thoughts.
