Lopez appears to spend MDW at the home of a friend, per photos published in the Daily Mail. That said, Lopez does appear to be wearing her engagement ring in the pics (along with white pants and a tie-dye Gucci top).

May 22, 2024: As speculation about a Bennifer divorce ramps up, a journalist in Mexico City—where Lopez is promoting her new movie Atlasasks JLo point-blank if the rumors are true. Lopez rebuffs the question, responding, “You know better than that.”

Meanwhile, an insider tells People that their union “is not in the best place at the moment.” The source added, “She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world. He is more introspective and private. This has been difficult day-to-day.” Yep, got that.

May 20, 2024: The day everyone dropped their talking points. “If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would,” a rather scathing insider tells Page Six. “He feels like the last two years was just a fever dream, and he’s come to his senses now and understands there is just no way this is going to work.”

Sources tell People that the reason for the turmoil at Casa Bennifer is the couple’s different approaches to fame. “Ben hates all attention and it makes him very uncomfortable,” one source tells the outlet. “Jennifer has always had a different approach.”

A source “in the film industry” adds that Affleck has “always been impressed” by Lopez, and specifically her work ethic and career, but “always sharing her life is not his way.”

“Even though he admires that about her, it doesn’t make him happy and causes stress in his life and then in hers. There is no question their different styles clash,” the industry source says.

Yet another source, this one from “the music world,” confirms: Lopez “needs that expression but Affleck simply is not comfortable with it. After a while it causes tension in the relationship. He is more introspective and private. She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world. This makes them considerably different, and it has been difficult in the day-to-day relationship.”

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

The same day, Lopez attends the Atlas premiere without her husband, who is busy filming The Accountant 2.
