Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are back in the headlines, but this time, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Almost twenty years after falling in love the first time, the two Hollywood stars are facing some rough patches in their relationship. Even after getting back together in 2021 and tying the knot the following year, they are facing rumors of splitsville again.

Several news sources claim the couple seems unhappy and could be considering divorce. Some reports even suggest they’ve already made the decision but haven’t announced it publicly yet.

The fact that they recently put their huge $60 million mansion up for sale might be a clue that things aren’t going smoothly. And reportedly, the main reason behind their divorce is that their lifestyles aren’t meshing well.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Hollywood’s favorite rekindled romance, might be facing a rough spell. The couple, who got engaged way back in the early 2000s, were all over the news before calling things off in 2004. Then, to everyone’s surprise, they got back together in 2021.

But according to insiders, things aren’t perfect this time around either. Apparently, their different lifestyles might be causing some problems. JLo loves the bright lights and has a jam-packed career, while the Caped Crusader actor prefers to stay out of the spotlight.

This difference, along with rumors that they’re not talking things out enough, might be causing issues. It gets even trickier because they both have kids from previous relationships, which makes their family life more complicated.

Sources close to Bennifer told In Touch Weekly that the couple is prioritizing a friendly breakup if that’s what they decide to do. Reports have it that Affleck especially wants to avoid a drawn-out court fight like his last divorce with Jennifer Garner. He values his relationship with Lopez and wants things to stay civil and respectful, even if they go their separate ways. Check out the insider’s quote below:

The last thing Ben wants to do is hurt Jen. He still loves and respects her. And, of course, the family situation comes into this heavily, which is why he’s agreed to do this in a civilized and loving way, just like he did with Jennifer Garner.

But there are hints that the pop-star might be looking for a quicker split through lawyers. Insiders told Closer Online that she’s been talking to lawyers and has put together a team to handle the press if things go south. However, PR expert Lauren Beeching expressed concern to The Sun that if there is a divorce, Jen might face more negative publicity.

Another source told  In Touch Weekly she’s been putting in the effort to save the marriage. This includes going to events with Affleck’s kids and trying to show a united front in public. Some believe this is a real attempt to work things out, but others wonder if it’s just to keep her image good in the public eye.
