SANTA MONICA, LOS ANGELES: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted sharing an awkward air kiss at his son's basketball game in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The 'Hustlers' star, 54, and the 'Argo' director, 51, arrived separately at a local YMCA to support his 12-year-old son Samuel, as per DailyMail.

Photos of the moment have sparked social media discussions about the awkwardness of the kiss, amid widespread reports that Lopez and Affleck’s relationship is going through a rough patch.

This comes after the singer canceled her US tour "to be with her children, family" following the poor performance of her album and the Netflix movie 'Atlas', which was panned by critics.

The pair greeted each other outside but opted for an air kiss instead of a kiss on the lips, with Affleck seemingly patting Lopez on the back before they headed into the event together.


Later, the duo looked glum while grabbing fast food at the Jack in the Box drive-thru, amid ongoing rumors of marital issues.

Also at the event were Affleck's mom, Christopher Anne 'Chris' Boldt, and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 52.

Chris later left the event with her former daughter-in-law.

In a sweet moment, the '13 Going On 30' actress was seen helping her former mother-in-law into her car.

Lopez looked chic in a long-sleeve black top and blue jeans, with her honey-toned hair down and lightly tinted sunglasses.

The 'Maid in Manhattan' actress carried a black leather purse and wore her signature gold hoops.

Meanwhile, the father-of-three, Lopez's fourth husband looked casual in a red t-shirt, blue jeans, sneakers, and a red corduroy jacket.

His mom wore a black cardigan over a blue top and matching black pants.

Garner was effortlessly chic in a brown sweater, blue jeans, black loafers, and a brown hat.

Internet says Jennifer Lopez loves Ben Affleck 'more than he loves her'

Pictures of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck sharing an air kiss went viral across social media platforms, with many users sharing their thoughts on Facebook.

One user mocked, "Wow been married almost 24 years and don’t think I’ve ever done an air kiss with my husband."

Another added, "This poor man just wants to run from this crazy toxic lady." A third trolled, "He pulled his mouth as far away from hers as possible hahaha." 

Someone assumed, "I think she loves him more than he loves her...his body language shows it." A user said, "Fake...staged... but its okay Reality sets in when they are back to their different appartments."

Another explained, "Both love each other but due to age factor and day jobs, it effected to their life style. She need to slow down and try to fit in into wife's role. She just need to accept more of real Ben and need to eliminate her desire of how Ben should be. I think Ben is doing fine as a husband."
