Everything we know about the alleged separation of JLo and Ben Affleck


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck face separation rumors after their reunion in 2022 and an anticipated wedding. Here are the details.

A Relationship Full of Ups and Downs

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck started dating in 2002 and, after rekindling their romance in 2022, finally got married. However, according to Lopez, the time they spent apart had a significant impact on both of them.

“We both have PTSD,” Lopez shared on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2023. When the couple split in 2004, it was due to “excessive media attention,” revealed the “Enough” star. “But now we’re older. We’re wiser. We also know what’s important, what really matters in life, and it’s not so much about what other people think. It’s about being true to who you are.”

Separation Rumors

After her solo appearance at the 2024 Met Gala, rumors circulated that she and Affleck were on the verge of separating. At that time, the couple hadn’t been seen together since March 30.

A source told People that they were not living together, as Affleck’s filming of “The Accountant 2” was affecting the relationship. “He is more introspective and private. She likes to open her heart to her fans and the world. This makes them considerably different, and it has been challenging in their day-to-day relationship,” the source continued.

“There have always been clashes in their styles, in how they handle issues and in their actions, but nothing has stopped their love over the years,” the source said. “This is a great love story.”

Public Appearance

The day after the news spread, Lopez and Affleck made their first public appearance in two months, partially dispelling the rumors about their breakup.
