Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck stepped out together amid split rumors — though they showed no PDA.

The stars showed no PDA as they walked from the car to the building, though in some photos of them in the vehicle together, they were both smiling.

This is the couple's second outing in less than a week after rumors of marital strife popped up following a report that noted they hadn't been seen side by side in 47 days.

A second source told another outlet that one of their main issues is how they handle fame.

"They just have very different approaches when it comes to media attention. Ben hates all attention and it makes him very uncomfortable. Jennifer has always had a different approach," shared the insider.

An additional insider explained that even though the dad-of-three, 51, "admires" the 54-year-old's decades-long success in showbiz, her tendency to live such a public lifestyle "doesn’t make him happy and causes stress in his life and then in hers."

"There is no question their different styles clash," the source spilled. "After a while it causes tension in the relationship."

"He is more introspective and private. She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world.

"There have always been clashes in their styles, how they handle issues, and their actions, but nothing has stopped their love over the year. This is a great love story."
