Ben Affleck is enjoying quality time with his kids while wife Jennifer Lopez vacations in Italy without him amid rumors a divorce is ‘imminent’ for the couple.

On Wednesday, the Academy Award-winner, 51, was spotted riding around Los Angeles with his 12-year-old son Samuel on the back of his electric motorcycle.

The little boy held on tight as his dad zoomed out of their Brentwood neighborhood.

Both father and son wore helmets during their afternoon ride — which comes less than two weeks after Samuel’s elementary school graduation. 

Affleck kept it casual in a navy blue button-up over a maroon T-shirt with denim jeans and Nike sneakers.

The Argo star shares Samuel as well as kids Fin, 15, and Violet, 18, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 52.

The exes married in 2005 but separated in 2015 ahead of their 10th wedding anniversary. Their divorce was finalized three years later in October 2018. 

Garner has seemingly been someone to lean on for Affleck in recent weeks as he weathers speculations that his marriage to Lopez is doomed.

On Wednesday, DailyMail.com obtained photos of Lopez vacationing in Italy with friends while her husband remains in California.

The On The Floor hitmaker, 54, flashed her toned abs and enviable legs as she donned a pastel yellow crop-top paired with matching shorts for a relaxing yacht break in Sorrento.

J-Lo wore her tresses sleek and straight – paired with chic shades and a sleek palette of make-up as she whiled away the afternoon.

The star looked in great spirits as she chilled – thousands of miles away from Ben.

Also on Wednesday, a source told Us Weekly that Ben and Jen have ‘been discussing divorce’ after ‘months’ of Lopez trying to ‘fix things’ between them.

‘They can’t get on the same page [and] have been discussing divorce as an option,’ the insider claimed, with another adding that Lopez is now looking to the future.

‘It has been really hard for her and she is trying to figure out her next act,’ the source dished.

They also claimed that Lopez’s busy lifestyle has taken a toll on not just the singer but also Affleck and their family.

A final source claimed that Lopez has been the one leading the charge to ‘fix’ hers and Ben’s relationship. 

‘Jennifer has been trying for months to make it work and is pushing to fix things,’ they told the outlet. 

After canceling her tour, Lopez and Affleck listed their Bel-Air marital home for $65million.

And Lopez allegedly ‘wants to sell their house off-market to try and get less attention surrounding it’ because she’s so ‘distraught.’

Meanwhile, an Us Weekly insider claimed that Ben ‘doesn’t care about the negative attention’ because he’s been through a very public divorce in the past and ‘it doesn’t faze him.’

They added that Affleck has been leaning on his longtime BFF Matt Damon at this time.

‘Ben’s been leaning on Matt a lot lately when it comes to everything he’s going through with Jennifer. Matt knows there isn’t much he can do aside from listening and just being there for Ben,’ claimed the source, adding: ‘He’ll always support his friend no matter what.’ 

Three weeks after putting their Bel-Air abode on the market, it still has not sold, even though the price is fair, according to TMZ.

The site spoke with real estate agents that have insisted the price is on target and should not be an issue.

That $65M price tag is $4M more than they paid for it; it has often been reported that the property cost the couple $60M, but they actually snapped it up for $60.850M.

The Atlas actress, 54, and 51-year-old Oscar winner have yet to announce they are divorcing but sources tell DailyMail.com that they will likely drop the bad news on the Friday before 4th of July.

Neither Jen nor Ben wanted to keep the dwelling for different reasons: she felt it was too big and he thought it was too far from his kids in Brentwood.

‘Ben never liked the house. It’s too far away from his kids,’ an insider close to Lopez told PEOPLE.

The Gone Girl star co-parents his three children with ex-wife Garner, who lives in the Pacific Palisades.

Meanwhile, the singer, who shares 16-year-old twins Emme and Max from prior marriage to Marc Anthony, feels the 12-bedroom house is simply ‘way too big for her.’

The pair, who are rumored to have been ‘living apart’ for weeks, famously toured more than 80 properties together to find the perfect place to live with their blended family.

Affleck and Lopez hired realtor Santiago Arana, from The Agency, to sell the property.

Amid rumors that ‘divorce is imminent’ for the pair, a source told TMZ that their realtor has been ‘showing the house for around 2 weeks’ but has not secured a buyer yet.

The insider reported that ‘they’re asking around $65 million for the house.’

With the ‘significant money’ the duo put into improvements, the outlet said they would be taking a ‘loss of millions of dollars.’

TMZ also reported that Lopez is ‘already looking for a new house’ as Affleck stays at a 100K-per-month rental in Brentwood, near Garner.

DailyMail.com reported that photographs of their marital home’s lavish interior have popped up on realtor websites after being removed following the property’s sale to the couple last May.

DailyMail.com determined that these new photos were uploaded to real estate site Zillow.com on June 1 and June 5. The house is still listed as sold.

The couple bought the home and paid for it with cash after a two-year-search for their dream home in what was supposedly a fairytale ending to their decade’s long love story.

Over a week ago, fifty images including an exterior shot of the palatial property lit up and glowing against the Los Angeles sky are visible across multiple real estate sites where once there were none.

A description of the property has also been uploaded describing the Wallingford estate, on which the property sits, as an exclusive 6-acre promontory. The lot includes not only the main building but an adjacent additional house providing 10,000 square feet of guest accommodation along with a caretaker house.

There are garages for 15 cars and parking for 80 and an outdoor sports complex with basketball, pickleball, gym and boxing ring and bar as well as a 150 degrees zero edge pool.

The move has sparked speculation that the 17-bedroom, 43,000square foot property is set to be put quietly back on the market.

A representative for J-Lo pointed out that the images themselves are not new.

It is just the latest indicator that all is not well with the A-listers who eloped to Las Vegas in July 2022 before celebrating their union across several days – and several gowns – in Georgia the following month.

Last week DailyMail.com reported that Jennifer is ‘over’ trying to make her marriage with Affleck work.

Amid rumors about the status of the couple’s marriage, an industry insider has now claimed that the pop star has reached her wit’s end and no longer feels that she can do any ‘more’ to save the relationship.

‘Jenny has had enough and she really tried but she can do no more, it’s not getting any better, it’s worse,’ a music industry source told DailyMail.com.

The insider add that the main reason JLo left her husband was because he was always ‘grumpy and negative’ like Oscar The Grouch from Sesame Street.

Jennifer is sad about the end of her nuptials but ‘is trying to make the best of it by working out, spending time with her twins Max and Emme and making new plans for 2025,’ they went on.

One of those new plans is resuming her This Is Me… Live tour for the summer of 2025 when she turns 56. She canceled the 2024 tour that was scheduled to kick off in July in order to ‘recollect herself.’

This comes as the couple listed their Bel Air, California mega mansion three weeks ago for $65M, but it still has not sold, even though the price is fair, according to TMZ; seen in February

‘She is excited about going on tour next year when her personal life is on calmer ground and she can connect with her fans. She will take her tribe with her and make the most of it,’ said the source.

Lopez is also said to be ‘shocked’ by the bad press she has been getting, which she believes is not fair.

‘If people could see what she has really gone through they would be easier on her,’ said the source.

‘Ben is a great guy but he can be grumpy and a downer. I think the world saw that in photos like when they were at the Grammys last year; he wouldn’t smile. If they saw how it really was, they would not attack her,’ said the friend of Jennifer.

‘He chain smokes and cusses and seems irritated a lot of the time. Great director and actor, but not a lot of laughs with him, you know?’ said the source. ‘He is a wonderful father though.’

Lopez plans on pushing on.

‘She is really not used to this kind of bad feedback, but she will get over it. She will march on,’ said the pal.

‘Jennifer is a very smart and strong woman and she will bounce back, she always does!’

These days she has been leaning on her close friends.

One is stylist Shawn Barton, whose nickname is Beezy. Another is vocal coach Stevie Mackey.
