Ben Affleck has been spotted in Los Angeles amidst intensifying speculation about his marital status with Jennifer Lopez. The sighting occurred during the Fourth of July weekend, where the actor was seen heading to his workplace in Los Angeles, California. Meanwhile, Lopez was seen enjoying leisure time in the Hamptons.

Affleck, dressed in a plain gray T-shirt, jeans, and sneakers, was holding a cup in one hand as he briskly strolled through the area. Despite his casual attire, his demeanor suggested tension and haste. Body language expert Judi James analyzed his behavior, noting, "There is some clear suggestion of tension here and Ben is still clutching his now-signature prop of the coffee cup."

James further elaborated that Affleck's actions seemed strategic, aimed at shifting the narrative surrounding his supposed irritation with the invasive off-screen cameras. "There is some mood-movement and it could appear from his body language that he's trying to look philosophical rather than merely irritated by the cameras," she added.

James also pointed out that Affleck's chin positioning signified confidence, and his expansive shoulder stance mirrored the superhero characters he portrays in movies. "Affleck's stride appears to have a touch of jauntiness to it, and surprisingly, there's a faint hint of a smile on his face," she observed. "Although his lips are sealed, the genuine expression is evident with a subtle crinkling around his eyes. It seems like his mood has lifted ever so slightly in this moment."

Since rumors of Lopez and Affleck's divorce emerged in May, Affleck has been under close scrutiny. Despite numerous reports suggesting their divorce is imminent and unlikely to be reconciled, Affleck was recently seen still wearing his wedding ring, fueling further speculation about their relationship status.

According to The Daily Mail, Lopez's family is urging her to initiate divorce proceedings and move forward with her life without Affleck. A source revealed that Lopez's mother, Guadalupe Rodriguez, and sisters are encouraging her to "move on to avoid getting any deeper in this mess." The source mentioned that Rodriguez advised the Hustlers actress to "'Cut your losses'" and highlighted that she only "wasted years believing that Ben was some kind of knight in shining armor."

"He was not the person she built him up to be. It's taken too much of a toll on her, and because of this, she has lost sight of who she is and what she stands for," the source added.

Amid the situation, another insider reported that Jennifer Garner, Affleck's former wife, decided to distance herself from her unofficial role as a mediator between Affleck and Lopez during their alleged separation. Garner reportedly expressed, "Sorry, figure this out yourself," as the situation became too painful for her, bringing back memories of her own divorce from Affleck.

The intense media scrutiny and public speculation surrounding Affleck and Lopez's relationship have added pressure to an already strained situation. Despite their attempts to maintain a semblance of normalcy, the couple's every move is being watched and analyzed, leaving little room for private resolution.

Affleck and Lopez, both high-profile celebrities, have faced numerous challenges in their relationship, including managing their blended family and navigating the demands of their respective careers. As the rumors continue to swirl, only time will tell whether they can find a way to reconcile or if they will ultimately decide to part ways.

In the meantime, Affleck's public appearances and Lopez's family dynamics will likely continue to be subjects of intense public and media interest, reflecting the enduring fascination with their high-profile romance and its potential demise.
