Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are living separately while both are in Los Angeles, according to multiple sources.

The couple were seen together in public on Thursday, May 16 for the first time since March 30, but a source close to Lopez, 54, tells PEOPLE that Affleck, 51, has not been staying at the couple's Los Angeles home. He is instead staying at one of their other properties while filming his movie The Accountant 2.

Reps for Affleck or Lopez did not respond to PEOPLE's requests for comment.

Lopez was spending time in New York in recent months to film her movie Kiss of the Spider Woman, promote the Netflix film Atlas and serve as a co-chair for the 2024 Met Gala, which she took part in without Affleck by her side. He recently attended the May 5 live Roast of Tom Brady solo between filming.

A separate source told PEOPLE that Affleck and Lopez arrived separately to the May 16 event in support of their kids, and both were seen wearing their wedding rings as they left together, with photos showing Affleck picking up Lopez and Emme.

Lopez recently "liked" a March 19 post from a relationship advice account on Instagram that called out relationship red flags.

In the recent documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told, Affleck and Lopez spoke about their rekindled relationship. He said in the film, “Getting back together, I said, ‘Listen, one of the things I don’t want is a relationship on social media. Then I sort of realized it’s not a fair thing to ask. It’s sort of like, you’re gonna marry a boat captain and you go, ‘Well, I don’t like the water.’ ”

He also said he and Lopez are “two people with different kinds of approaches trying to learn to compromise."
