Ben Affleck Jennifer Lopez House Sale Amid Divorce Rumors JLo Backs Ben

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are reportedly putting their Beverly Hills mansion up for sale amid swirling divorce rumors. The couple, who tied the knot last year, have been the subject of intense speculation after Lopez was seen house-hunting alone in Los Angeles on May 14. The following day, reports emerged that Affleck had already moved out of their $60 million home.

Sources close to the couple revealed that Affleck had vacated the property, and the couple might have to sell the dream home they spent two years searching for. “They’ll never stop loving each other, but she can’t control him, and he can’t change her,” a source said. “There’s no way it could have lasted. They waited almost two decades to get back together, but in the end, they just couldn’t make it work.”

Fast forward nearly a month, and it appears that part of this prophecy is coming true. According to a TMZ report published on June 8, the couple is “quietly trying to sell the home they bought after they married” and have enlisted realtor Santiago Arana from The Agency to facilitate the sale. Arana has reportedly been showing the home for two weeks, with the Afflecks seeking $65 million for the property.

Despite TMZ’s declaration that a divorce is “imminent,” Jennifer Lopez was still seen wearing her wedding ring during a Los Angeles outing on June 9. This news comes on the heels of Live Nation announcing that Lopez would be canceling her world tour to spend more time with her family. “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down,” Lopez said in a statement to fans. “Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary.”

The couple’s five-acre property, known as the Wallingford Estate, features a 46,000-square-foot home with 12 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, an indoor sports complex, a sports lounge, and a bar. The estate also includes a 12-car garage, a zero-edge pool, a 5,000-square-foot guesthouse, a caretaker house, and a two-bedroom guard house.

In a potential sign of estrangement, photos of the couple’s marital home have reappeared online. According to the Daily Mail, previously unavailable images were uploaded to the Zillow profile of the Beverly Hills mansion on June 1 and June 5. This has led to speculation that the couple is preparing to put the house back on the market.

There have been numerous signs that the A-listers are experiencing trouble in paradise. These include Lopez’s response to questions about split rumors during a May press conference, reports that Affleck is staying at a separate house, and J.Lo canceling her upcoming tour to spend more time with her family.

Lopez and Affleck purchased the 43,000-square-foot house in cash for $60.85 million in May 2023, just 10 months after they tied the knot in Las Vegas. The mansion, located in the 90210 ZIP code, had been listed on and off since 2018 and had previously been seeking $300,000 a month before Bennifer bought it.

The fact that there are now 50 images of the home, including a new shot of the exterior, available across various real estate listing websites, suggests that the couple is possibly preparing to look for a buyer. In the June 5 edition of her newsletter, On the J.Lo, the singer celebrated her new movie, Atlas, hitting the number one spot on Netflix worldwide. “Hi everybody, I just found out some great news and it’s all because of YOU!!” she wrote. “ATLAS is #1 worldwide again this week!!”

Despite the ongoing rumors, neither Lopez nor Affleck have publicly addressed the split. However, Affleck has reportedly been staying at a separate home from his wife, and Lopez was recently seen house shopping with a friend. The “Armageddon” star was also spotted without his wedding ring, further fueling the speculation.

A source told Us Weekly that Lopez and Affleck are “on two completely different pages” now that their honeymoon phase is over. The outlet reported that Affleck “doesn’t agree with Jennifer’s lifestyle,” feels “worn down” by the marriage, and has “checked out.”

As the couple navigates these turbulent times, the sale of their Beverly Hills mansion could be a significant indicator of their future together. For now, fans and observers can only speculate on what lies ahead for one of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples.
