JENNIFER Lopez and Ben Affleck have been spotted together for the first time in weeks as split rumors rage on.

The Hollywood couple hadn’t been seen in the same place for over a month but came together on Thursday night to support Ben’s child Seraphina “Fin” Affleck in a school play.

In Touch Weekly shared photos of Ben, 51, sitting in the driver’s seat of a black SUV while Jennifer, 54, opened the passenger door.

Jennifer’s 16-year-old child, Emme, was also seen in the backseat.

“Jen looked super thin and was dressed casual-chic. She didn’t glam up like the last time she came to a school function,” an eyewitness told the outlet.

“She seemed more subdued than usual when she greeted Ben as he pulled the car up. Emme was super excited, though,” they added.

Jennifer and Ben had kept to themselves in recent weeks, which raised eyebrows that they might have parted ways.

They were last photographed together on March 30 in New York City.

Rumors also circulated that the pair were living apart and not in their shared $60 million Los Angeles home.

The Jenny From the Block singer appeared to squash chatter earlier in the day when photos captured her wearing her massive diamond ring.

She showed off her stunning ring and incredible figure in sweats and a crop top while heading into a dance studio.

Last week, the married couple sparked alarm when Jennifer arrived at the Met Gala, without her husband of two years. 

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Relationship Ups and Downs

A source exclusively explained the duo’s dynamic to The U.S. Sun, saying, “The ground rules are, Jennifer and Ben are allowed to go off and do projects, appearances and work that completely don’t involve each other, and definitely involve spending weeks at a time apart.

“The fundamental difference between them is that Jennifer has an incredible golden optimism about every situation and Ben sees everything – and I mean everything – in his life as a problem that only he can solve.

“She’s good at ignoring little, insignificant stuff and focusing on the big picture and he isn’t,” the insider added.

Meanwhile, another source claimed that Ben “reached a breaking point” with the actress and had checked out of the relationship.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck relationship timeline

JLo and Ben were first linked together in 2002 and became engaged later that year. However, they called off the wedding just two years later. They rekindled their romance in 2021 and finally got hitched in 2022. Here is a timeline of their love story:

  • June 2002 – Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the set of Gigli and JLo divorced from her second husband Cris Judd
  • November 2002 – Ben proposed to JLo with a six-carat pink diamond ring
  • September 2003 – JLo and Ben called off their wedding and blamed it on ‘excessive media attention’
  • January 2004 – The celebrity couple announce they are heading separate ways
  • July 2021 – JLo posts an intimate photo of herself beside Ben and they begin dating again
  • April 2022 – Ben proposes to JLo for a second time
  • July 2022 – The celebrity couple officially celebrated their nuptials in a Las Vegas, Nevada, ceremony
  • August 2022 – Ben and JLo have a second A-list wedding at their $8.9million George estate

“It’s over; they’re headed for a divorce and for once [Ben’s] not to blame. He’s focusing on his work and kids now,” the source told In Touch.

“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.”

Jennifer and Ben reunited in July 2021 after breaking off their engagement two decades earlier.

Their romance quickly blossomed, and they got engaged the following April.

Ben had been divorced from his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, 52, since October 2018, while Jennifer had recently broken off her engagement to MLB star Alex Rodriguez.

Upon getting married, Ben and Jennifer blended their families together, with the actor’s three kids, Violet, 18, Seraphina “Fin”, 15, and Samuel, 12, whom he shares with his ex-wife, and the pop star’s twins, Emme and Max, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, 55.

Rumors have recently circulated that they no longer live in their shared Los Angeles mansion together
