This weekend, Ben Affleck paid a visit to Jennifer Lopez at the $60.8 million Beverly Hills mansion they are reportedly attempting to sell just one year after purchasing the property together.

Photos of Affleck driving out of the estate on Sunday night were published Monday by Page Six. The outlet reported that the Air director had spent four hours at his and Lopez’s shared home before heading out. (As for why he didn’t stay the night, People previously confirmed that Affleck is living in a Los Angeles rental as he films The Accountant 2.)

The sighting comes amid increased reports of marital strife and public speculation over a looming divorce. A source recently told Entertainment Tonight that, although the two are “living separate lives,” they also haven't quite ended their relationship.

“Jen and Ben have been living separate lives but have not officially separated yet. At this point, they are just doing their own thing,” the insider explained. “They went into their relationship very optimistic and thought things could change, but they haven't.”

As for how Lopez has been faring through this experience, the source said, “Jen is touring houses and shopping around for her own home. She has been leaning on her mom, sisters, and kids during this transitional period.”

Affleck is coping similarly. “Ben is sad about it all but focused on his work, being a great dad, and co-parenting well with Jennifer Garner,” the source continued. “He has been leaning on Matt Damon and his close circle of guy friends. Matt is always in Ben’s corner and is supportive of him.”

Rumors that the couple, who married in 2022, are heading for a divorce first emerged in May following a dearth of public appearances together. Despite a handful of joint outings in the weeks since, those rumors continued to be fueled by various tabloid reports claiming that the two are “taking space” from each other. Most recently, Lopez even canceled her anticipated This Is Me...Live summer tour in order to take “time off to be with her children, family, and close friends.”
