Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck’s close pal Jason Mewes ‘would be shocked’ if they split amid divorce rumors

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s close friend Jason Mewes has weighed in on the divorce rumors surrounding the couple.

The “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” star, 49, was asked about the duo’s relationship and if he thinks they’ll be going their separate ways soon.

“I would be shocked,” Mewes told TMZ Wednesday.

Mewes’ friendship with the Oscar winner spans over two decades when they co-starred in “Dogma,” and “Chasing Amy,” as well as other comedy classics.

In August 2022, Mewes attended Bennifer’s lavish nuptials at Affleck’s Georgia home.

“I’m being sappy,” Mewes told the outlet when asked about the pair’s wedding. “When you were there watching their interactions, the singing — she sang to him — it just seemed after 20 years and them and everything that’s going on, [to be] very sincere and real.”

Mewes cast doubt on reports that the pair are living apart despite having not kept in touch with Affleck and the “On The Floor” hitmaker, 54, since they tied the knot.

“Maybe he’s busy working and she’s working and it’s too much with the kids,” he shared. “I’m not saying that’s what it is — I don’t know.”

The actor’s comments come just hours after Lopez shut down a reporter who asked her to address the divorce rumors during a panel in Mexico City for her forthcoming film “Atlas.”

“You know better than that,” she responded with a brief smile, per a video posted to Instagram by El Gordo y la Flaca’s account.

Her co-star Simu Liu then chimed in to shut the reporter down.

A day prior, the mom of two attended the film’s second premiere solo once again — while the “Argo” actor was photographed leaving hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, Calif., later that night.

Just hours before the first “Atlas” premiere, a source told Page Six exclusively that Affleck has “come to his senses” about the pair’s marriage.

“If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would,” an insider told us Monday.

“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.”

Affleck’s apparent absence from the red carpet came exactly two weeks after the pair first sparked split rumors when Lopez showed up to the 2024 Met Gala without him — despite serving as one of the event’s co-chairs.

The Oscar winner reportedly started staying at a home in the Brentwood neighborhood of LA — less than 30 minutes from his and Lopez’s $60 million Beverly Hills mansion — two weeks ago.
