Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are going through a rocky period, according to an insider who recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight.

“Jen and Ben are continuing to take space from each other,” the source said in a report published Wednesday. “They’ve been having issues for a few months and trying to figure things out on their own.”

Lopez, who has been busy with a whirlwind press tour for her latest movie, Netflix sci-fi action flick Atlas, is coping with their marital issues by focusing on her career. “Jen has been having a hard time dealing with the general stress of life as well as in her career,” the source said. “She has been experiencing ups and downs while processing everything. She has been throwing herself into work, which has always been an outlet for her to stay busy and distracted.”

Rumors of a divorce first emerged earlier this month, when news outlets began to report that the couple hadn’t been publicly spotted together in 47 days. Lopez and Affleck were later seen together for the first time in over a month on May 19, where they joined their kids and Affleck’s ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, for a film event in Los Angeles.

Another source previously told ET that the couple, who wed in 2022, are simply facing “normal problems.”

“Ben feels like Jen has a hard time feeling satisfied, and that’s one of the issues they’re facing. Ben is one of the only people who feels comfortable enough to be honest and real with Jen. It’s part of why Jen loves him, but also why she’s upset with him,” the insider explained. “She tries to play it off like she doesn’t care what the public thinks about her, but she loves her fans so much, so their feedback does impact her. Ben and Jen are going through normal problems and nothing scandalous is going on.”
