Ben Affleck seen for first time without wedding ring amid Jennifer Lopez divorce rumors

Ben Affleck left his wedding band behind Friday amid rumors that he and wife Jennifer Lopez are on the rocks.

The “Gone Girl” star, 51, was seen in photos obtained by TMZ Saturday pulling up to his child’s recital, and cameras caught when Affleck lifted his left hand while driving, revealing he was sans marital bling.

The ringless sighting further fuels the speculation that he and Lopez are headed for Splitsville. Page Six has reached out to reps for comment but did not immediately hear back.

This is the first time Affleck has been seen without his wedding ring since the rumors began earlier this week.

When the “Good Will Hunting” star was snapped picking up the “Jenny From the Block” songstress and her teen Emme on Thursday, both he and his famous wife still had their rings on.

It’s unclear what took place in the 24 hours between the photo sets that prompted Affleck to take his band off but neither he nor Lopez have addressed the divorce rumors.

The “Selena” star, for her part, however was seen wearing a ring when she stepped out for dance practice on Friday — although, it’s unclear whether it was her matrimonial jewelry.

Page Six exclusively reported Friday that Los Angeles real estate circles have been buzzing over the fact that Affleck has allegedly been shopping around for a new home.

TMZ also reported earlier this week that the “Argo” director had been sleeping at a house in Brentwood, Calif., — away from Lopez — and not at the $60 million pad he and his wife bought together.

Lopez, meanwhile, has also been seen house-hunting, but an insider insisted the “Hustlers” star was merely looking for an investment property.

Insiders fanned the flames Thursday, though, by telling Us Weekly that Lopez and Affleck are just on two “completely different pages.”

“Jen and Ben are having issues in their marriage,” the source claimed.

“They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour.”

Lopez is set to go on her rebranded “This Is Me…Live | The Greatest Hits” tour starting in June after reportedly struggling to sell tickets in some US cities, forcing her to cancel those shows.

Affleck, for his part, has started production on his movie “Accountant 2” in California.

The movie star was noticeably absent from this year’s Met Gala, which Lopez — who served as one of the ball’s co-chairsattended solo on May 6.

The couple, who tied the knot in Vegas and then had a more formal wedding in Georgia in 2022, has been open their relationship struggles, especially given that they rekindled after being engaged decades ago.

“When Jen and I broke up before, the catalyst for that was the amount of scrutiny around our private life,” Affleck said in Lopez’s “The Greatest Love Story Never Told” documentary, released in February. “I had a very firm sense of boundaries, initially, around the press.”

He then continued, “Getting back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a relationship on social media.’

“And then I sort of realized it’s not a fair thing to ask. It’s sort of like you’re gonna marry a boat captain and [say] like, ‘Well, I don’t like the water.’”

Affleck concluded in the candid docuseries, “We’re just two people with different approaches, trying to learn to compromise.”
