P2. Ben Affleck has “struggled with loneliness” since moving out, makes last ditch bid to win back Jennifer Lopez, claims source

The ongoing debacle surrounding the potential breakdown of the marriage between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez has taken another turn, if reports are to be believed.

Over the past few weeks much and more has been said about the A-list couple and the rumored, impending breakdown of their union, though we’ll make it clear at this stage that said rumors are only to be found in the realms of conjecture and speculation.

If we’re to believe what’s being said, then the harmony Affleck and Lopez used to reignite their love is well and truly on the rocks. Affleck has apparently been living away from the couple’s shared $60 million Beverly Hills home of late, on top of being spotted without his wedding ring on more than one occasion.

Lopez, meanwhile, has made numerous public appearances in recent weeks without her husband by her side, and one plucky reporter even quizzed her on the state of her marriage, to which she coyly replied: “You know better than that.”

As stated, we’ve not got much to go on so far as concrete updates – you know, the official sort that come from one or the other involved parties – but Radar Online are today running with a piece suggesting that Affleck may have had a change of heart concerning any potential split.

Radar say that the 51-year-old Batman star appeared ready to bring things to a close with J-Lo, but time apart from her may well have reminded him of what he stands to lose.

A source reportedly told Us Magazine that Affleck is now starting to “invest more”.

“[Ben has] struggled with loneliness” since moving out of their home “and realized how much he misses Jen,” the source claimed.

A second source, meanwhile, added that while they’ve been apart “Ben and Jen kept in touch primarily to discuss essential matters and updates.”

Now, though, the couple are “both reassessing their priorities and [figuring out] what they truly want from the marriage,” the second source said.

Fans will remember how the superstar couple called off their first engagement almost 20 years ago, ultimately finding new partners and moving on with their lives before reuniting to finally tie the knot at a secret Las Vegas wedding in 2022.

But if fans of the couple had allowed themselves to hope that a fairytale, happy ending was in the offing, the gossip of recent weeks has categorically soured such an idea.

Radar Online also reported this week that Lopez was “desperate” for her marriage to Affleck to work, though the iconic singer is set to kick off her This Is Me… Now tour on June 26.

A source is said to have spilled that Affleck “doesn’t agree with Jennifer’s lifestyle” and feels “worn down” by their marriage in its current state.

There’s undoubtedly more to come in this tale of twists and turns, so stay tuned!
