Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez Spotted Spending Time Apart Amid Rumors of Marital Discord
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck fans have speculated that the famous pair is going through a trying time. Rumors of a fractured relationship were fueled by their separate weekend sightings. While getting coffee, Ben appeared anxious, and JLo was spotted shopping by herself. According to reports, JLo believes that Ben went too far in confiding in his ex-wife Jennifer Garner about their marital problems, and hence the couple has been experiencing major tiffs. As The Things reported, fans of the couple claim they look miserable together based on their recent sightings. A close source has exclusively revealed to OK Magazine that, “Ben’s reliance on Jen as a confidante may have crossed the line."
The source continued: “He’s made some shocking confessions to her about JLo’s temper and the ugly texts she sends to him, which he shouldn’t have done. He admitted that her notorious diva attitude can be very hard to handle." Garner, who had called the Dare Devil actor “the love of my life” after their split, “really does want to like JLo, for the kids’ sake. Ben is making that difficult, though,” the source added. “His latest gripes changed her perspective.” Regardless of the alleged grievances, “Ben has insisted to JLo that she’s the only woman for him and that he just cares for Jen because of the children and what they’ve been through.” Photographers spotted Ben stopping for a cappuccino in Santa Monica on Sunday, October 15. He was wearing dark slacks, white sneakers, and a hoodie in a casual outfit. The actor was looking straight into the cameras, his face strained and expressionless.
The same day, Jennifer was spotted shopping in Los Angeles. The Waiting for Tonight hitmaker walked into a parking lot while keeping her head down for the cameras to follow. Her well-known visage was hidden behind big sunglasses as she wore white sneakers, leggings, and off-the-shoulder sweaters. However, ETOnline has captured the couple on a momentous date at a pumpkin patch. Affleck and Lopez were spotted kissing and showing off major PDA at a Los Angeles pumpkin patch. An eyewitness told the news outlet that the two 'looked very much in love' as they spent some quality time with each other in the petting zoo.

As per the Daily Mail reports, Affleck's new relationship with Lopez, according to an insider source, is what ultimately enabled him to make amends with his ex-partner Garner. "One of the things that made [Garner] and [Affleck] get to a better place was—and is—JLO. Ben is healthy. The drama of the past and the emotions of divorce are long gone, and they are all making it work." "It is really a very happy co-parenting situation," the source added. "Everything is really good right now and should be the same in the near and distant future."
