Even though they rekindled their romance 17 years (!!!) after their first engagement in 2002, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's relationship is reportedly "not in the best place at the moment," according to several People sources.

The outlet's latest cover story dives into the nature of their 'ship amid all the rumors and reports that have surfaced in the past week—including, but not limited to J.Lo house hunting sans Ben, pulling up to the Met Gala and her Atlas movie premiere solo, and casually name-dropping him during a late night interview. So, there's a lot to unpack here, re: Bennifer.

According to an anonymous source who knows Jennifer via her music career, the "Waiting for Tonight" singer "likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world" while the Dunkin' ambassador "is more introspective and private. This has been difficult day-to-day." Per People, the source also lives in J.Lo and Ben's $60 million mansion while Ben reportedly "bunks in a rental a few miles away."

In J.Lo's This Is Me Now... The Greatest Love Story Never Told documentary, Ben opened up about how he and Jen are different in nature, saying, "Getting back together, I said, 'Listen, one of the things I don't want is a relationship on social media.' Then I sort of realized it's not a fair thing to ask. It's sort of like, you're gonna marry a boat captain and you go, 'Well, I don't like the water.'"

"There have always been clashes in their styles and how they handle issues, but nothing has stopped their love over the years," the music source noted.

Anonymous sources, tortured man clubs, cheating rumors—it's all just a lot.

Another insider, who allegedly knows the couple through the film industry, told People that while Ben has taken part in some of Jennifer's recent projects, he likes to keep a more low-key profile. "He's always been impressed about how she works so hard and has achieved so much success but the openness and promotion is not his way," the second source explained, adding, "I don't know if they will split, or if this is something they will work through."
