Jennifer Lopez the fitness fanatic flaunts six pack as she leaves dance studio… while Ben Affleck puffs cigarette and eats pizza at bachelor pad rental amid divorce rumors

Must read

Jennifer Lopez is pouring herself into her work — and her fitness routine — as rumors continue to swirl that her marriage to Ben Affleck is headed for divorce.

On Thursday, the singer, 54, was spotted leaving a dance studio in Los Angeles after another grueling rehearsal before her tour kicks off in June.

She had her chiseled abs on full display in a bright yellow crop top as she walked to her parked SUV.

Meanwhile, Affleck, 51, happily indulged himself on Thursday as he was seen puffing on a cigarette in his car before ordering pizza to his $100k-per-month Brentwood rental mansion.

He’s been living at the property — located just two blocks away from his ex Jennifer Garner — for the last few weeks as he shoots his new film The Accountant 2 amid the JLo split rumors.

It’s been claimed that Affleck and Lopez have clashed over their views on public attention after she aired out intimate details of their rekindled romance in her Prime Video documentary that was released in April.

For Thursday’s rehearsals, Lopez styled her crop top with a neon green bra and low-rise baggy black pants.

The On The Floor hitmaker’s honey-toned hair looked freshly blown-out and she carried an Hermes Birkin bag.

She rocked her favorite Y2K-era sunglasses with large gold hoops and a fresh pink pearlescent manicure.

Lopez also wore the wedding band Affleck gave her when they tied the knot in July 2022.

She was joined by her longtime manager Benny Medina, who remained by the singer’s side as they made their way in and out of the dance studio.

When she wasn’t chatting with Benny or giving directions to other members of her entourage, Lopez had her cellphone glued to her ear.

Later, Affleck headed to the set of his new film The Accountant 2, where he was photographed without his wedding ring on. 

Also on Thursday, Lopez took to Instagram to share a sassy message with her 252million followers.

She re-posted a photo of a billboard on Sweetzer Avenue in Los Angeles that read: ‘Don’t F With JLo’

The billboard is part of promotion for her new Netflix film Atlas, which premieres Friday.

Lopez has reportedly banned questions about Affleck during her recent Atlas promotional appearances, amid ongoing rumors that their marriage is doomed.

The Jenny from the Block hitmaker and Netflix have alerted reporters covering Atlas events that questions about the Argo director are off-limits, as per TMZ.

According to the publication the media were also informed that Lopez would only participate in group interviews with her co-stars Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown.

The strategy worked during the Los Angeles and Mexico City premieres on Monday and Tuesday. However, during a press conference in Mexico on Wednesday, a reporter asked the singer point blank about the split rumors.

Lopez — who was still wearing her wedding ring — looked tense as she tried to laugh the question off, before playfully scolding the man, saying: ‘You know better than that.’

It’s not clear if the reporter was not informed about her request for no personal questions, or if he simply decided to ignore it.

In a now-viral video, a male reporter shocked the crowd when he asked Lopez to confirm if the ‘Ben Affleck rumors’ were ‘real’, as the pair have been ‘living separately’ after Ben moved out of their $60 million L.A. home ‘several weeks ago’, as per Us Weekly. 

However the singer and actress did not attempt to deny rumors her fourth marriage is on the rocks.

The audience applauded J.Lo for how she handed the situation while one of the panelists – her co-star Simu – warned other reporters to steer clear of that line of questioning.

‘Don’t come in here with that energy, please’ the 35-year-old Canadian actor said.

At another point during the presentation Simu chimed in to defend J-Lo once more as he said: ‘If I could just end on one thing.

‘Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I’m here and the reason why Sterling was in this beautiful movie was because Jen cares. Jen cares about things like representation and diversity — and she’s a boss!’

While the Hustlers star is in Mexico to promote her new film, Affleck was pictured in Los Angeles looking jovial as he spent time with his 12-year-old son Samuel on Wednesday.

The Argo actor cracked a rare smile, despite the marriage speculation, as he strolled with the son he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 52.

The former pair also share Fin, 15, and Violet, 18. Garner and Affleck were married from 2005 until 2018.

That same day the actor – whose friend Jason Mewes recently weighed in on the split rumors – was also seen puffing a cigarette while driving his matte gray BMW as he arrived to his rental home.

Affleck has been residing at the lavish mansion while filming his latest movie titled The Accountant 2.

It was recently revealed that the Brentwood home is only a mere two blocks away from the mother of his children, who is reportedly desperately trying to help Ben save his two-year marriage to Lopez.

Lopez has also been confiding in Garner according to insiders, who claim the two women fear he is close to breaking his sobriety.

Lopez has been divorced three times. The singer’s first marriage was to Cuban actor Ojani Noa, 49, in 1997. It only lasted 11 months.

She tied the knot again with choreographer Cris Judd, 54, in 2001 but they were divorced by 2003.

Lopez welcomed her twins Max and Emme, 16, during her 10-year marriage to Latin hitmaker Marc Anthony, 55.

They wed in 2004 following Lopez’s first shock split with Affleck that same year. Anthony and Lopez separated in 2011 and their divorce was finalized in 2014.

Lopez arrived in Mexico on Tuesday as part of the ongoing promo trail for Netflix’s Atlas, which hits theaters Friday, May 24.

Despite the Q&A debacle, the mother-of-two appeared unshaken by the speculation around her relationship with Affleck as she posed for photographers on Wednesday.

She put on a dazzling display in a sheer jumpsuit after recently sharing that she is the ‘thinnest’ she’s ever been.

Earlier this week it was reported that Affleck is pushing to divorce Lopez, after branding the union a ‘fever dream’.

Amid swirling split rumors, PageSix has claimed Affleck is ready to call an end to his two-year marriage, going as far to claim the decision to tie the knot was down to ‘temporary insanity’.

A source told the site that the Oscar-winner has ‘come to his senses’ after previously being so in love with the Atlas actress that he could not think straight.

While he has been spotted spending quality alone time with Lopez in recent days, he now feels his head is ‘clear’ and he can move on.

‘If there was a way to divorce on grounds of temporary insanity, he would,’ the PageSix source said.

However, People has maintained that the couple will stick it out as they have a ‘great love story.’

Although his temporary home boasts enough space to house several families comfortably, it’s a downgrade for Affleck, who purchased a 38,000-square-foot mansion with his wife J.Lo last year for an eye-popping $60.85 million.

Fans began to suspect that something was amiss with Affleck and Lopez’s marriage after they went nearly two months without being photographed together, though the time apart was reportedly due to the singer’s busy schedule and Affleck’s work filming a sequel to The Accountant.

The two seemed to reunite last week for a school performance that his child Fin was featured in.

Though they both displayed grins while arriving at the play, the two looked notably frosty around each other at other times.

Ben has been spotted on recent occasions without his wedding ring, but both wore their rings when they were together.

Ben and J.Lo married in 2022 after rekindling their romance in the wake of her split from Alex Rodriguez.

The two had previously dated from 2002 to 2004, which included an engagement, though they called off the wedding and went their separate ways at the time.
