Meanwhile, the People reported that the couple has not been spotted together in 47 days now. Even fans of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have noticed that they have been spending time apart, and this became more evident when the latter missed the Met Gala 2024. The fashion night was a big day for JLo, as she was co-chairing this year’s event alongside Zendaya, Chris Hemsworth and Bad Bunny. However, Ben skipped the event, with his representative stating that he had his hands full with shoots for his upcoming film, The Accountant 2. A source close to the couple has told In Touch Weekly:

“The writing is on the wall – it’s over. They’re headed for a divorce – and for once, (Ben’s) not to blame! He’s focusing on his work and his kids now. Ben already moved out and they’ll likely have to sell the dream house they spent two years searching for. They’ll never stop loving each other, but she can’t control him, and he can’t change her. There’s no way it could have lasted.”

Jennifer Lopez’s fame could be a reason behind her separation from Ben Affleck

The exact reason behind Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s divorce is not known yet, but In Touch Weekly has reported that the couple always had a significant problem with handling fame. While JLo embraced the media’s attention, Ben liked to stay away from it. In JLo’s documentary, The Greatest Love Story Never Told, Ben has talked about compromising and said:

“Getting back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a relationship on social media.’ Then I sort of realized it’s not a fair thing to ask. It’s sort of, like, you’re going to marry a boat captain and you go, ‘Well, I don’t want the water.’ We’re trying to learn to compromise.”

When Jennifer Lopez liked an Instagram post talking about healthy relationship

While Ben never wanted to stifle Jennifer’s dreams or career, the compromise ended up being more difficult than it seemed initially, and the couple could not work through it. Moreover, a few days back, JLo even liked a post on Instagram, which can be read as: 

“You cannot build a healthy relationship with someone who lacks integrity and emotional safety.”
