Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Spotted Together Amid Breakup Rumors

This is Jennifer Lopez…now.

Amid rumors that her marriage to Ben Affleck is on the rocks, the multi-hyphenate performer stepped out with her wedding ring on full display at the Los Angeles premiere of her new Netflix movie Atlas May 20.

For the red carpet occasion, J.Lo donned a ivory tube top and black mermaid skirt with a statement necklace and matching earrings adorned with green stones. The platinum band she shares with Ben—who she married in Las Vegas in July 2022, before saying “I do” again a month later in Georgia—was seen on her left hand.

The sighting comes just a day after the couple were spotted driving around L.A. together: Jennifer, 54, and Ben, 51, attended a family event before they heading to BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood, according to TMZ. During the May 19 outing, Ben had his wedding band on full displayed, while the “Jenny From the Block” singer kept her hands in her pockets as the two walked alongside each other in a parking lot.

Speculation of marital problems between the pair started to surfaced in early May, when Ben did not accompany Jennifer to the 2024 Met Gala, which she co-chaired. While a rep told E! News at the time that the Oscar winner’s absence was due to his filming schedule for The Accountant 2, Jennifer recently raised eyebrows when she “liked” an Instagram post that read in part, “You can’t build a relationship with someone who is disconnected from themselves.”

Rumblings of trouble in paradise continued as multiple outlets reported on May 17 that the couple were living apart.

However, Jennifer and Ben have had their share of ups and downs over the years. After all, they first broke up in 2003 before rekindling their romance two decades later, years after Jennifer welcomed 16-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex Marc Anthony and Ben became dad to kids Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12, with ex Jennifer Garner.

“Once we called off that wedding 20 years ago, it was the biggest heartbreak of my life,” Jennifer recounted in a 2022 interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “I honestly felt like I was going to die.”

But after going down “separate paths,” the Wedding Planner alum believes her and Ben’s love story “does have a happy ending.”

“Once we got whole enough, complete enough, loved ourselves enough and could stand on our own two feet really completely, as the universe had it, we were bought into each other’s lives again,” she noted. “It was like a crack in the clouds and the sun came through.”
