Hollywood A-listers Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are reportedly living separate lives, sparking rumors of marital trouble. 

This news comes just a year after their rekindled romance culminated in a lavish wedding.

Signs of Strain

Multiple sources close to the couple spoke to Entertainment Tonight, painting a picture of growing distance. One insider revealed, "Jennifer and Ben have been living separate lives. They're not officially separated yet, but at this point, they are just doing their own thing." While they entered the marriage with optimism, it seems their hopes haven't materialized.

Real Estate Moves Fuel Speculation

Adding fuel to the fire is the recent listing of their massive Beverly Hills mansion, purchased in cash just last year. The 43,000-square-foot behemoth boasts 17 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms, but according to TMZ, they're seeking a hefty sum of $65 million to part ways with it.

Separate Support Systems

While Lopez reportedly seeks solace in her family – mother, sisters, and her twins – Affleck leans on his longtime friend and co-star Matt Damon. "Ben is sad about it all," a source shared, "but focused on his work, being a great dad, and co-parenting well with Jennifer Garner."

A Brief Reunion

Despite the reported separation, there was a glimmer of hope. Affleck was seen visiting Lopez at their Beverly Hills home for a four-hour stretch on Sunday. However, he left alone later in the evening, further fueling speculation.

A Second Chance Gone Wrong?

The news comes as a disappointment to fans who were rooting for the rekindled romance. Lopez and Affleck, dubbed "Bennifer" in the early 2000s, were initially engaged in 2002 but postponed their wedding and eventually called it quits in 2004. After nearly two decades apart, they reconnected in 2021 and tied the knot in 2022.

Unanswered Questions

Whether this is a temporary rough patch or the beginning of the end for Bennifer 2.0 remains to be seen. The reasons behind their alleged marital woes are unknown, and neither Lopez nor Affleck have publicly addressed the rumors.
