Jlo and Ben Affleck smile for cameras amid marital rift reports

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck want the world to know they’re on good terms, despite rumors they’re not living together.

The reportedly estranged couple was spotted together on Sunday, and were photographed spending the day with each other in Santa Monica as they smiled for cameras.

The pair was out to support Lopez’s daughter Emme at a school event. Jennifer Garner, who is Affleck’s ex wife, also showed up with their child Fin.

As the duo left the event, Lopez and Affleck were seen heading out to West Hollywood for dinner together at BOA Steakhouse in WeHo. The L.A. restaurant is notorious for being a spot where paparazzi hang out to scout snaps of celebrities.

Affleck moved out of the $60 million Beverly Hills mansion they bought together and has been living in a rental in Brentwood, according to TMZ.

On Friday, Affleck was seen out without his wedding ring, but he had it on Saturday when seen outside his home.

Lopez has suggested the couple relocate to New York from Los Angeles to help with their marital strife, a source shared with the Daily News: “She suggested they move to New York to see if leaving Los Angeles would be helpful. But his kids are still in school and her twins have a year to go to finish high school,” the insider said.

Rumors of trouble in paradise began surfacing after Lopez showed up solo to the 2024 Met Gala. Sunday marked the second time she and Affleck have been seen together in the past week. Before that, they hadn’t been seen in public for over a month.

Affleck and Lopez have yet to make any comments about the status of their relationship.
