Another indication that all is not well for the celebrity couple, known as ‘Bennifer’ is that Jennifer Lopez attended the Met Gala without Ben Affleck by her side. She was co-chair of the event but according to reports, Ben Affleck did not attend because he was busy filming The Accountant 2.

In February of this year, Jennifer Lopez ‘s Amazon Prime documentary, The Greatest Love Story Never Told, was released. In the clip which she shared on her Instagram page, Jennifer Lopez said: “I’ve been married four times now. I’m sure people watching from the outside from the outside ‘What is this f***ing girl’s problem? You saw this kind of compulsive behaviour. What I portrayed to the world was ‘Oh, this didn’t work and it’s fine and I’m good and they’re good. And they were great and I was great. And of that was kind of bullsh*t.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck eloped in July 2022 and held a second wedding at Ben Affleck’s home in Riceboro, Georgia on 20th August. She shared some photographs from their wedding in her newsletter and wrote on 1 September , “Some old wounds were helped that day and the weight of the past finally lifted our shoulders. Full-circle-and not at all the way we planned it. Better”

Rumours that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were first back together swirled in May 20021 and they made their re-debut on the red carpet at the 2021 Venice Film Festival. The couple first  met on the set of crime comedy ‘Gigli,’ and at the time Jennifer Lopez was still married to Cris Judd.

Although Ben Affleck proposed to Jennifer Lopez in November 2022, they postponed their wedding one day before the ceremony in September 2023 due to reported ‘excessive media attention.’ It was in January 2004 that the couple split for good the first time around.

At the time of writing, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have been photographed separately still wearing their wedding rings. In her latest Instagram post where Jennifer Lopez is promoting Atlas, which is premiering soon on Netflix, fans were quick to respond to the Jennfier and Ben divorce rumours. One said: “I actually don’t believe the rumour that Ben and jen are divorcing she seems very happy even though Ben doesn’t lol,” whilst another said: “Chilee.. I hope the rumours aren’t true as I was really rooting for you!”
