The Hollywood power couple recently listed their $60 million marital home and have been residing separately for quite some time. "Ben seems pretty content with the living arrangement as it is now,” the insider said. “It’s Jennifer who can’t seem to accept that it’s over between them."

The tension between Lopez and Affleck, who tied the knot in 2022, has stemmed from their vastly different approaches to life and their respective careers. "Jennifer has a big entourage that follows her around daily — glam squad, videographers, photographers, assistants, trainers," an insider revealed.

"She’s tried to make Ben understand that being Jennifer Lopez is a 24/7 job. She is her brand, she lives and breathes it while Ben can leave his work at the door if he chooses to," the insider explained. "Jennifer’s keeping her head up. She doesn’t want to be seen as the villain."

The Good Will Hunting actor was upfront about dealing with his spouse's larger-than-life personality while appearing in her documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told. "Getting back together, I said, 'Listen, one of the things I don't want is a relationship on social media,'" Affleck explained.

"Then I sort of realized it's not a fair thing to ask. It's sort of like, you're going to marry a boat captain and you go, 'Well, I don't like the water,'" he added. "We're just two people with different kinds of approaches trying to learn to compromise."

"I don’t think [Ben] is very comfortable with me doing all of this,” Lopez noted of her man. “But he loves me, he knows I’m an artist, and he’s going to support me in every way he can because he knows you can’t stop me from making the music I made… he doesn’t want to stop me. But that doesn’t mean he’s comfortable being the muse.”
