The relationship between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez appears to be facing difficulties, with recent reports hinting at significant hurdles. Matt Damon, a long-standing friend of Affleck’s, is said to have cautioned him about the potential complications of reigniting his relationship with Lopez, paying particular attention to the threats to his sobriety and professional life.

Insiders close to the two actors have shared that Damon, aged 53, encouraged Affleck to focus on his career and evade diversions. “Matt attempted to alert Ben when he started seeing J.Lo again that this could transpire,” a source revealed. “Matt was present to assist Ben in recovery after their initial separation, and he had a feeling this could occur once more.”

Living separately for several months, Affleck, 51, and Lopez, 54, have fueled divorce rumors. The couple, widely recognized as Bennifer, have been spotted without their wedding rings. Affleck has taken up residence in a Brentwood, California rental costing $100,000 monthly, while Lopez has been seen vacationing alone in Italy.

Adding fuel to the speculation, the couple has quietly listed their $60 million Beverly Hills, California mansion for sale. Those in the know suggest this act signals deeper problems within their marriage.

Despite these hurdles, both Affleck and Lopez have kept their careers in the spotlight. Lopez is engaged in preparations for an upcoming concert tour and promoting her Netflix film “Atlas,” while Affleck is involved in shooting “The Accountant 2.”

Damon’s worry about the influence of the relationship on Affleck’s career appears to have some merit. The “Good Will Hunting” actor, who has sustained a stable 18-year marriage to Luciana Barroso, is reported to have asked Affleck, “What has she ever done for your career?” Damon has been a consistent ally, ensuring that Affleck remains focused and does not slide back into previous habits.

Affleck and Lopez, who initially dated in the early 2000s and got back together in 2021, have experienced immense public scrutiny throughout their relationship. In her documentary, “The Greatest Love Story Never Told,” Lopez admitted that the pressures from their widely publicized romance led to their breakup just days before their planned wedding.

In recent media interactions, Affleck expressed his unease with the relentless media attention and the strains of maintaining a high-profile relationship. He stressed that he did not want his relationship with Lopez to be aired on social media, despite acknowledging that this is expected when it comes to being involved with a public figure like Lopez.

There are considerations from Lopez to relocate to New York City, a plan insiders claim was in progress even before her marital difficulties heightened. This move is viewed as a means for her to avoid West Coast scrutiny and concentrate on her family, which includes her 16-year-old twins, Max and Emme.

Despite the ongoing rumors and their individual lives, sources close to the couple insist that they do not desire a divorce and are still attempting to resolve their issues. However, the future of their relationship remains in question as they navigate these stormy waters.
