The rollercoaster love story of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, better known as 'Bennifer', may finally have hit a road bump, according to recent reports.

The star-studded pairing initially sparked in 2001, with Hollywood heavyweight Ben getting down on one knee with an eye-catching pink diamond in 2002. Sadly, a few days prior to their wedding day in 2004, the pair decided to call time on their relationship - leaving fans heartbroken over the split of their favourite celebrity couple.

Yet, almost two decades after they first ignited their romance, Ben and Jennifer were seen enjoying a cosy date in the Hamptons in 2021. By summer 2022, the love birds had finally said 'I do'.

Despite their fairytale ending seeming like a scene out of a movie script, recent speculations surrounding their relationship suggest Bennifer might have pressed the pause button again as sources reported by the Mirror say they "just couldn't make it work".

Reports from In Touch claim that Ben has moved out of their shared family home. To add fuel to the fire, Jennifer's solo appearances without her husband are raising eyebrows, suggesting an impending divorce.

Let's take a closer look at the signals indicating that this beloved duo might be heading separate ways...

Solo house-hunting

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez settled into their grand £47.4 million mansion in Beverly Hills last May, creating a family haven for their brood. The sprawling estate boasts a cinema, wine room, whiskey lounge, and an expansive 5,000-sq-ft sports facility with a boxing ring and basketball court. The 12-bedroom, 24-bathroom home was snapped up in cash, marking it as the ideal residence for their children; Ben's three kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner and JLo's twins with former husband Marc Anthony.

Insiders have revealed to In Touch that Ben has vacated the mansion he shared with JLo, and she's been seen scouting for properties in Beverly Hills with a friend. "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," confided the source.

Time apart

In recent weeks, Jennifer Lopez has often been spotted without Ben Affleck, sparking speculation of a rift. Her solo appearance at the Met Gala earlier this month, donning a striking Schiaparelli dress, only added fuel to the breakup rumours. Despite her dazzling presence, the Hustlers star faced criticism for being "rude" after dismissing a reporter's question about the designer of her gown.

Jennifer Lopez was recently seen house hunting with a friend earlier this week, before being spotted solo as she made her way to a dance studio in Los Angeles with her team. The singer was notably absent when Ben took to the stage to hilariously rib his good mate Tom Brady at The Roast of Tom Brady on May 5. The last time the power couple were seen in public together was during a lunch at Cecconi's in New York, where eyewitnesses suggested the pair appeared tense. Their St Barts holiday also seemed less than relaxed, with the duo caught in what looked like a heated exchange, and Ben appearing visibly upset.


The rollercoaster journey of Jennifer and Ben's love story was thrust into the limelight in Lopez's Amazon Prime documentary titled 'The Greatest Love Story Never Told'. Furthermore, their rekindled flame was the central theme of the $20 million short film 'This Is Me... Now: A Love Story', which launched alongside JLo's latest album 'This Is Me... Now'. The documentary didn't shy away from the peaks and troughs of their romance, revealing that Ben had initially wanted to keep their rekindled relationship under wraps when they got back together in 2021. "Getting back together, I said, 'Listen, one of the things I don't want is a relationship on social media.' Then I sort of realised it's not a fair thing to ask," Ben confessed.
