Did Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Break Up?

In mid-May 2024, the internet went ablaze over Jennifer and Ben’s marriage because they weren’t seen in public together for nearly 50 days. Not only that, but social media users also noticed that the “On the Floor” hitmaker “liked” an Instagram post that described relationship issues.

The original post mentioned a person who “cannot build a healthy relationship with someone who lacks integrity & emotional safety … lacks effective communication skills,” and “doesn’t know who they are or what they want.”

The post’s user @yourcourageouscomeback claimed that Jennifer “liked” the post, according to several outlets.

“Just logged on to IG and noticed @jlo liked my post,” the user wrote alongside a screenshot of Jennifer’s official Instagram account’s “like” of the post. “Jlo or her PR team, I’ll take it.”

Nevertheless, the rumors were put to rest after PEOPLE reported on May 17 that Jennifer and Ben were, in fact, spotted out together. The spouses were both reportedly wearing their wedding rings.

Multiple outlets, however, reported that the couple have been living separately in recent weeks.

How Long Have Jennifer and Ben Been Together?

After meeting on the set of Gigli, Jennifer and Ben began dating in 2002. They later went on to star in the romance film Jersey Girl. After becoming one of the most famous couples, Ben and Jennifer got engaged but eventually called off their wedding. In early 2004, they officially broke up.
