Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck spotted together with wedding rings amid divorce rumors

Are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck still together after all?

In images captured by In Touch Weekly, the married couple are seen together for the first time in 47 days to attend Affleck's 15-year-old teenage kid Fin perform in a school play. They were last spotted together in March.

The pictures showed the actor behind the wheel of a black SUV as he tries to open the passenger door for Lopez. The actress' 16-year-old child Emme was also seen sitting in the back seat.

According to the report, a source said that the two arrived separately, but they were both seen wearing their wedding rings as they left the event.

"Nothing would have stopped them coming together for the kids. All the marriage drama comes second," the source told the outlet, adding that the pair is "putting on a united front."

"Jen showed up with Emme to support Fin. Emme’s super attached to Fin, so it’s only natural that Jen, no matter what she’s going through with Ben, was there," they added.

This comes as Affleck and Lopez are being hounded by divorce rumors. A report from TMZ claimed that Affleck was spotted staying at a separate house in Los Angeles over the past week or so.

The rumors were further fueled following Lopez's lone appearance at the Met Gala, where she served as co-host.

Eagle-eyed social media users also noticed she recently liked an Instagram post from a relationship coach who, in text images, said that one cannot build a healthy relationship with someone who lacks integrity and emotional safety, doesn't respect your time, lacks effective communication skills, and doesn't know who they are or what they want.

"You can’t build a relationship with someone who is disconnected from themselves. We can’t expect someone to see us when we can’t even see themselves," the post's caption read. "Getting in a relationship is the easy part. Nurturing & fostering it is a different story. After all, love is not a feeling, it’s action," it read.

This isn't the first time that Affleck and Lopez, known to fans as "Bennifer," experienced trouble in paradise in terms of their relationship. The two started their romance in 2002 before calling off their engagement two years later and starting their own families with other partners.

It wasn't until 2021 that they reignited their romance and married twice: an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas and a formal affair in Georgia in 2022.
