As Peters mentioned, the "Get Right" songstress announced earlier this year that she was canceling her This Is Me... Live Tour, which was scheduled to kick off on June 26.

"I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down," she told fans in her newsletter. "Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary."

People assumed the cancelation was due to both low ticket sales and her issues with the Oscar winner, 51.

As OK! reported, the pair has been living separately as they try to figure out what's in store for their future. In addition, they've put the $60 million marital home they bought together on the market.

One insider blamed their issues on the couple's opposing lifestyles, as Lopez like to be in the spotlight and on social media while the dad-of-three prefers to be more private.

"Of course Jenny is sad, she loves Ben, but they are just too different, there is no give and take, there was no blending, they are just on separate tracks," the source told Daily Mail. "She really tried hard to make it work, and it just did not work. She invested a lot of time and energy, and I think he did the same."

"There is no one to blame here," the insider insisted. "It just was not in the cards. It is very hard for two massive stars to keep a marriage going, one has to give in, and in this case neither gave in."

The actors first started dating in the early 2000s, but in 2004, they called off their engagement. They reconnected in 2021 and tied the knot the following year.
