Rumors have been swirling that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are headed for divorce.

The 54-year-old star explained she tried to “slow down more and be home more” in the last “few years.”

Though she did not mention the Good Will Hunting actor specifically, she began cutting back around the same time she rekindled her 2004 romance with the 51-year-old.

“That’s what I used to do a lot of. This, this, this, this,” Lopez shared. “That’s the truth … As much as it seems like I’m going at a fever pace all the time, I’m actually at half the pace that I was a few years ago.”

Now that rumors have swirled the couple may be on the brink of divorce, the mother-of-two’s schedule has noticeably increased, as she has recently spent a lot of time in NYC while Affleck has been in L.A.

Despite getting married less than two years ago, many sources claimed the duo’s relationship has gone south.

One insider claimed Affleck is “not to blame” for their problems, noting the hunk — who reportedly has not been living at his and Lopez’s marital home — has been “focusing on his work and his kids now.”

“Ben already moved out and they’ll likely have to sell the dream house they spent two years searching for,” the source spilled. “They’ll never stop loving each other, but she can’t control him, and he can’t change her. There’s no way it could have lasted.”

Despite being spotted together on May 17, the Selena actress and the Gone Girl lead have reportedly hired “crisis PR to help navigate” their split and “a divorce filing is imminent.”
