Divorce Attorney Suggests Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck May Have Already Signed Separation Papers
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, one of Hollywood's most iconic couples, may be heading towards a divorce, according to recent rumors. The couple, who first got engaged in 2002 and later split in 2004, rekindled their romance almost two decades later and tied the knot in 2022. However, speculation suggests that their marriage may be on the rocks.

A divorce attorney, Jacqueline Newman, from Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein LLP, has weighed in on the situation, stating that there are hints indicating that Lopez and Affleck may have already taken steps towards ending their marriage. Newman expressed her thoughts, saying: "It feels like they are trying to let the public down easy by dropping hints about the marriage ending but not yet officially announcing it."

The couple's living arrangements seem to reflect the rumored strain in their relationship. Affleck is reportedly residing in a $100,000 monthly rental, while Lopez remains in their $60 million home, which they are now considering selling. Additionally, it has been reported that Affleck seeks guidance from his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, further fueling speculation about the state of his marriage with Lopez.

Newman also suggested that if a divorce is indeed on the horizon, the legal process may not be as complicated due to the likelihood of a prenuptial agreement and the relatively short duration of their marriage. She stated: "The actual legal part of the divorce will be easy, as they undoubtedly have a tight prenuptial agreement, and it was a short-term marriage."

The couple's relationship status sparks speculation
However, despite these speculations, it is important to note that the couple has not officially confirmed any of these rumors. The public remains eager for an official statement from Lopez and Affleck regarding the status of their relationship.

The uncertainty surrounding their marriage has sparked widespread interest and concern among fans and followers. As Newman pointed out, "It is the court to public opinion which will be the tougher divorce." This sentiment underscores the potential emotional and public scrutiny that could accompany any official announcement of a divorce.

The unfolding situation between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck continues to captivate public attention as people await further developments and potential confirmation of the rumors surrounding their marriage.
