Trouble in paradise, the second time around, for Bennifer? As People reports, it's been 47 days since Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were photographed together publicly, and rumors are swirling that something is amiss with the celebrity couple, who captivated the gossip lovers of the world when they reunited in 2021, more than a decade and a half after their first romance, which lasted from 2002 to 2004. They got married in 2022, but lately seem to be keeping their distance from one another—Lopez, for example, attended the Met Gala solo, while Affleck went to the roast of Tom Brady alone. And TMZ reports Affleck appears to have been staying at an LA home for at least the past week or so, without Lopez—who was recently spotted apparently house-hunting. (Though a source says she was just looking at investment properties.)

It was Us who got quotes from that anonymous source, who says there are indeed "issues" in the relationship. "They are on two completely different pages most of the time," with Lopez increasingly focused on work, the source claims. Another source says Lopez and Affleck are in couples therapy and aren't calling it quits quite yet. And, as rumors of rockiness are flying, E! reports both Lopez and Affleck have both been spotted in public wearing their wedding rings. (More Jennifer Lopez stories.)
