Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck reportedly ‘living separate lives’ amid marital woes

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have reportedly distanced themselves from one another as divorce speculation looms.

A source told “Entertainment Tonight” Monday that Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, have “been living separate lives” but are “not officially separated yet.”

“At this point, they are just doing their own thing,” the insider told the outlet. “They went into their relationship very optimistic and thought things could change, but they haven’t.”

Over the weekend, multiple outlets reported that the pair listed their $60 million Beverly Hills, Calif., mansion — just one year after purchasing the property in cash.

While Affleck reportedly started staying in a Brentwood home in mid-May, the “Jenny From the Block” singer also recently started “touring houses and shopping around for her own home,” the insider shared.

They noted that Lopez has been “leaning on” her mother, sisters Lynda and Leslie Ann and 16-year-old twins Max and Emme during this “transitional period.”

In fact, the “Selena” star even canceled her “This Is Me… Live | The Greatest Hits” tour to spend time with “her children, family and close friends.”

Lopez is reportedly “shopping around” for a new home — without Affleck.

The “Argo” actor, for his part, has also been relying on his loved ones to get him through the tough times— including best friend and “Good Will Hunting” co-star Matt Damon.

“Ben is sad about it all but focused on his work, being a great dad and co-parenting well with Jennifer Garner,” the source said. Affleck shares kids Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12, with Garner.

“He has been leaning on Matt Damon and his close circle of guy friends,” the insider continued. “Matt is always in Ben’s corner and is supportive of him.”

Despite taking some time apart, Affleck and Lopez met up for around four hours at their Beverly Hills home over the weekend.

The “Gone Girl” star seemingly joined his wife for dinner Sunday night as he was seen arriving at the home at 5 p.m. and left around 9 p.m. local time.

However, he was photographed exiting the palatial property in his black Mercedes without the actress.

Lopez and Affleck purchased the 43,000-square-foot house, which features 17 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms, in cash for $60.85 million in May 2023. According to TMZ, they are asking “around $65 million” for the mansion.

Although they are reportedly heading for Splitsville, “E! News” co-host Justin Sylvester revealed on “Today with Hoda & Jenna” Monday that he recently saw the couple out to dinner and they appeared to be in good spirits.

“How do I say this on daytime TV? They looked like they still are enjoying one another,” he said, noting that the dinner date happened around “two weeks ago.” 

“They looked like they were happy at a restaurant. They were chilling. He was his normal broody self. She was talking his ear off. Like, they looked like they were in good form,” he continued.

Although Sylvester said he was “rooting” for the couple, it might be too late as an insider previously told Page Six that Affleck has already “come to his senses” about their marriage.

“If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would. He feels like the last two years was just a fever dream, and he’s come to his senses now and understands there is just no way this is going to work,” the source shared last month.

The couple, who called off their engagement in the early 2000s before reconciling in 2021, wed in Las Vegas in July 2022.
