Jennifer Lopez enjoys time with friend Stevie Mackey in the Hamptons amid divorce reports

Jennifer Lopez was all smiles as she enjoyed a leisurely bike ride with her close friend Stevie Mackey over the Fourth of July weekend. The 54-year-old singer looked radiant in a photo posted by her vocal coach, 42, showing her relaxing during a trip to the Hamptons. Taking some time to unwind with her good friend, Jennifer seemed unbothered by the swirling divorce rumors regarding her marriage to Ben Affleck, 51. Despite not being seen publicly with Ben for over a month, Jennifer still wore her wedding ring, subtly addressing the speculation.

The Atlas actress exuded casual chic as she posed on matching cream-colored bicycles in front of a lush mansion. Stevie, known for his work on The Voice and with Jennifer herself, captioned the photo with bicycle, sunflower, and lavender emojis, writing: “Good times, good friends, good wheels.”

In the picture, Jennifer gave a sultry look to the camera, her hands resting at her sides and prominently displaying the massive diamond on her ring finger. She wore a black sweatshirt paired with wide-leg, white cropped jeans, and completed her monochromatic ensemble with chunky white sneakers. For the outing, Jennifer styled her long brunette hair into a slicked-back ponytail and accessorized with slim hoop earrings. Her bronzy, sun-kissed makeup look highlighted her natural beauty.

Stevie Mackey has been a close friend of Jennifer’s since they met at the 2014 American Music Awards, where he attended with Selena Gomez. He has worked on The Voice for over ten seasons and toured the world coaching Jennifer for her 2019 It’s My Party summer tour. His impressive resume also includes coaching other notable Hollywood names like Maroon 5, Fergie, and Lenny Kravitz.

During her Hamptons getaway, Jennifer was accompanied by Stevie and her manager Benny Medina, but none of her family members were present. Meanwhile, Ben was spotted back in Los Angeles. Despite wearing his wedding ring, rumors of their impending divorce persist. Reports suggest that their marriage has been in trouble for months. Recently, it was revealed that the couple has started selling off the artwork from their $60 million Bel Air mansion, which they listed for sale last month.

Amidst these rumors, People reported that Ben picked up the last of his remaining items from the house while Jennifer was vacationing in Italy. Jennifer continues to reside in their Bel Air mansion, while Ben has moved out and is staying in a $100k-per-month rental home close to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner’s residence. Ben and Jennifer Garner were married from 2005 to 2018 and share three children: Violet, 18, Fin, 15, and Samuel, 12. Jennifer Lopez is the mother of 16-year-old twins Emme and Max, whom she shares with her third husband, singer-songwriter Marc Anthony.

Jennifer Lopez found comfort in her dearest loved ones – family and friends – this Fourth of July weekend while holidaying in the Hamptons. Turning the frown on her face upside down amid swirling divorce rumors about her marriage to Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez took off for the Hamptons for the Fourth of July long weekend. The “Marry Me” star is taking well-deserved time off the showbiz radar amid her extended happy hour with friends.

The 54-year-old has undoubtedly had a rough year, facing flak from all sides of life—professional and personal. Turning the clock on the never-ending sad hour, she was recently spotted living life to the fullest while out for a bike ride with her longtime pal Stevie Mackey. The duo were seen on board twinning cream-colored bicycles, posing in front of a homely mansion. JLo kept things casual, sporting a black sweatshirt, wide-legged white pants, and chic sneakers. For the photo, she kept her hair pulled back in a tight ponytail while rocking a minimal sun-kissed aesthetic for makeup.

According to multiple insider reports, Bennifer and Jennifer have been “apart since March,” but despite their contrasting public personas and media appearances, The Accountant star is seemingly still “very protective of Jennifer.” They’ve alternatively been pictured wearing their wedding bands on some occasions and not on others. Jennifer kept her marital diamond ring on in her latest picture alongside her vocal coach, Mackey. Her friend shared the snap on his Instagram feed and captioned it, “Good times, good friends, good wheels,” with bicycle and flower emojis.

As Lopez appeared to be enjoying her time in the lush environs of the Hamptons and pedaling hard towards good vibes, Affleck remained in Los Angeles. In addition to sharing his pic with good friend JLo, Mackey also posted a bicycle illustration with a cryptic message on his Instagram Stories. “Life is like riding a bicycle. In order to keep your balance you must keep moving.”

Whether it has anything to do with Jennifer’s present scenario or not, the “On the Floor” had already heeded the life lesson. Two days ago, she, too, took to her Instagram page to share an all-smiles “Happy Fourth” carousel post of pictures while shopping for flowers. Earlier this year, she canceled her summer tour, “taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends.” Although she’s been busy with her film projects, her Hamptons trip finally offered a much-needed getaway from all the scrutiny surrounding her name.

While presumably en route to the popular celebrity hotspot earlier this week, JLo shared an Instagram video with her daughter Emme. Jenny from the Block reportedly also spent the American holiday with her son Max and manager, Benny Medina. Before taking off for the New York location, she enjoyed her time in Europe sans Affleck. A source told PEOPLE that the estranged couple is “doing their own thing” this summer. Despite handling the pressure of their very public relationship in their own ways, Jennifer kept her ring on throughout the Fourth of July weekend, as seen in recent pictures. Even though her family has reportedly asked her to leave “Ben behind,” she further signaled that her marriage was not over by flaunting a charm bracelet with his initials.
