Jennifer Lopez Will ‘Go Ahead’ and Move to New York After Ben Affleck Divorce, Source Says

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have hit a rough patch in their marriage, according to sources. The couple lives separately, with Lopez in their $60 million Beverly Hills mansion while Affleck resides in a $100,000 monthly rental. A source recently said that Lopez plans to “go ahead” and make a big move back to New York once she and Affleck divorce.

Jennifer Lopez allegedly plans to move to New York City after divorcing Ben Affleck, a source says

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are allegedly having a tough year. The couple fell in love in the early 2000s but ended their engagement in 2004. They rekindled their flame in 2021 and tied the knot in 2022. However, multiple sources allege the couple is headed for divorce in 2024 due to differences in their personalities that they can’t settle. While Lopez loves living in the limelight, Affleck prefers a quiet life away from the cameras.

A source now says Lopez plans to move to New York City once she and Affleck divorce. “Even before things went totally south with Ben, she was pushing for a full-time move to New York, and now she’s decided to go ahead with that after the split,” the insider told In Touch Weekly. ” … She’ll probably keep a place in LA, but she needs to get away from all the noise and the scrutiny on the West Coast.”

The source added that Lopez would take her twins, Max and Emme, to New York for a “fresh start.”

“They’ve got plenty of schools back east, and she’s got a great social circle there,” they continued.

Lopez was born in the Bronx and talked about her childhood in her documentary, The Greatest Love Story Never Told. “It reminds me, like, when I was 16 in the Bronx, running up and down the block,” she said. “Crazy little girl who used to f***ing be wild and no limits, all dreams.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were caught house hunting in New York City in April 2024 — a year after they purchased their $60 million Beverly Hills mansion. According to Page Six, the couple was seen bundled up as they toured the Upper East Side. They looked at a 7,000-square-foot apartment with six bedrooms spanning four floors for $45,000 monthly.

It seems likely that the couple was having marital problems at the time, and those problems progressed. Lopez and Affleck put their Beverly Hills home on the market in June 2024. “Ben never liked the house. It’s too far away from his kids,” a source told People, adding that “the house is way too big for [Lopez].”

Affleck reportedly isn’t living in the home and now resides in a $100,000 monthly rental close to his ex, Jennifer Garner, and their three kids. “Ben continues to live at the Brentwood rental,” a source told People. “He’s been there for about two months now. He seems OK. He’s been at his office every day and seems focused on work. He’s also spending time with his kids.”

She’s likely spending time in the Big Apple ahead of July 4th weekend

Jennifer Lopez fans might spot her in New York City on July 4th weekend in 2024. While Ben Affleck is reportedly in LA as of July 3, 2024, Lopez was spotted in the Big Apple. They both had their wedding bands visible during the holiday week, though it’s unclear what that means for their marriage moving forward.

Lopez visited New York City in March 2024 and reportedly had a blast seeing numerous Broadway musicals. An insider told Page Six she is “loving being back in New York.”
