Ben Affleck has officially been amid reported “issues” with wife Jennifer Lopez — including living under separate roofs.

Despite sources saying the pair is trying to work through their marriage, the Oscar winner, 51, was missing the significant piece of jewelry when spotted Friday evening outside his kid’s school, according to images published by TMZ.

Affleck and the Bronx-born pop star, 54, were both Thursday, the .

The photos were snapped one day before sources told the Daily News that Lopez needs “emotional support” as she navigates the commercial failure of her latest album, “This Is Me…Now,” and struggling tour sales — and that “Affleck is not built for that.”

Lopez, as a result, suggested the couple relocate to New York “to see if leaving Los Angeles would be helpful.” But that solution isn’t entirely viable, as both have teenage kids in school — her children from her marriage to Marc Anthony, and his with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

On Thursday, a source told Us Weekly that Affleck and Lopez “are having issues in their marriage,” which began as the latter “started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour,” leaving the pair “on two completely different pages most of the time.”

Despite the disconnect, a second insider said the couple is not planning to separate, while another source said they’re working on the marriage.

Initially engaged in the early aughts, Affleck and Lopez parted ways and moved on with Garner and Anthony, respectively, before ultimately reconciling in 2021. They tied the knot the following year, roughly 19 years after they first broke up.
