LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ben Affleck is holding onto his marriage with Jennifer Lopez as the 51-year-old star was seen rocking his wedding band on his left hand amid rumors of marital discord. 

The ‘Good Will Hunting’ star has been photographed a few times without the metallic band in the past few weeks. Needless to say, it fueled more separation rumors about the couple who aren’t currently living together, though insiders previously claimed the couple didn't want to get divorced.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez appear more connected this week

Affleck and the ‘Jenny From The Block’ singer, 54, tied the knot in 2022 after rekindling their romance from their initial split in 2004. 

The couple even invested a whopping $60 million in their dream house - which also recently popped up on a real estate site - in Bel Air, California. However, recently the ‘AIR’ star has not been living in the mansion and opted for a $100k a month rented property in Brentwood as his residence. 

After a seven-week absence from appearing together, the couple was first seen together during one of Affleck’s children’s school performances last month.

He kissed his son on his forehead as the pre-teen stepped out with several belongings in hand, per Daily Mail.

Amid the speculation of the rift between Lopez and Affleck, the ‘Atlas’ actress announced that she was canceling her ‘This Is Me…Live’ summer concert to spend more time with her family. 

On June 1, the ‘Maid in Manhattan’ singer canceled her tour by saying she wished to spend the summer with her family. 

In the statement, it was said, “Representatives for Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour THIS IS ME...LIVE is canceled,” before adding, “Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends.”

The statement continued, “For those who purchased through Ticketmaster, tickets will automatically be refunded – there is nothing further fans need to do.”

Lopez also addressed her fans in a statement published on the OntheJLo site saying, “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down,” before adding, “Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary.”

“I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time…” added the multi-faceted star. 

Previously, it was also speculated that the couple was facing issues in their marriage because of Lopez’s workaholic nature. 

Internet weighs on Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's split rumor

Fans were left divided in their opinion regarding the state of marriage between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. 

One of the fans said on Facebook, "Let them be it’s called marriage and it’s not easy all the time.."

Someone else said, "I hope they stay together because they love each other but people have to leave them alone 😔."

Another user commented somewhat skeptically, "Wearing a wedding band doesn’t mean anything."

"Prayers that they stay together ❤️," wished a fan of the couple. 

Someone else chimed in, "Seriously wearing his wedding ring doesn’t mean anything! My guess is that they will announce their separation in the coming weeks! Ben doesn’t look happy around JLo🙏."

"He simply wants a wife living with him," observed another social media user. 

Another fan added, "Come on Ben and Jen you guys love each other. Don’t let this make you or break you."
