Jennifer Lopez walks ‘Atlas’ red carpet without Ben Affleck as split speculation grows

Ben Affleck did not appear to join Jennifer Lopez at the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie, “Atlas,” amid mounting split speculation.

The “Jenny from the Block” singer, 54, walked the red carpet Monday without the “Argo” actor by her side. She was, however, wearing a band on her left ring finger.

Lopez, who looked stunning in a black-and-white ensemble, posed for photos solo, as well as alongside co-stars Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown and the Netflix film’s director, Brad Peyton.

Affleck’s apparent absence from the premiere 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.

A week later, TMZ reported that the pair were living separately.

The Oscar winner, 51, 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 — nearly two weeks ago.

Page Six later learned that Affleck, 51, has been quietly house-hunting around the LA area. Meanwhile, Lopez was also spotted looking at homes last week, though we heard she was simply on the prowl for an investment property.

Although neither Affleck nor Lopez has publicly commented on the breakup rumors, the “Marry Me” star recently “liked” an Instagram post about unhealthy relationships.

The “Gone Girl” actor was spotted without his wedding ring over the weekend — before putting it back on for an outing with Lopez and their blended family.

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

The pair, who were first engaged in the early 2000s, wed in July 2022.

“If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would,” our insider shared. “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.”

After calling off their first engagement in the early 2000s, Lopez and Affleck rekindled their romance in April 2021.

After a year of dating, the couple eloped in Las Vegas in July 2022.

They tied the knot for a second time a month later during a lavish ceremony at Affleck’s 87-acre Georgia estate.
