Ben Affleck Spotted Attending Daughter's Graduation Party Without Jennifer Lopez Amid Split Rumors

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck was riding solo over the Memorial Day weekend.

The Oscar-winner showed up at the graduation party for his daughter Violet on Monday, May 27, though his wife, Jennifer Lopez, was noticeably absent from the family event.

Affleck, 51—who shares Violet with ex-wife Jennifer Garner—was photographed pulling up to the event in Los Angeles as a party of one on Monday. In the snaps obtained by the Daily Mail, the dad of three could be seen wearing a white button-down and a beige sports jacket, a casual look he paired with jeans and black boots.

The sighting comes amid rumors that there's trouble in paradise for Affleck and Lopez, who have only been married since July 2022.

Lopez, 54, first sparked speculation about a possible split between the couple after she showed up to the 2024 Met Gala without Affleck, who was said to be busy with prior engagements in L.A., including the filming of The Accountant 2.

Fans realized shortly later that Affleck and Lopez haven't been spotted publicly together since March, though they each have appeared to be wearing their wedding bands on separate occasions.

Even though the Argo actor ditched his ring in a sighting last week, it was back on his left hand during the graduation party outing on Monday. Lopez was also seen wearing her ring on Friday, March 24, while stepping out in L.A., the Daily Mail reported.

But the Shotgun Wedding actress previously convinced fans that she and Affleck could be hitting a rough patch in their marriage after she "liked" an Instagram post from relationship coach turned therapist Lenna Marsak that began with the statement, "You cannot build a healthy relationship with someone who lacks integrity and emotional safety."

After fans began flooding the comment section with speculation over why Lopez double-tapped the post, the creator spoke out asking fans to "be kind" to the "Lets Get Loud" songstress.

"I do not know if they're getting divorced–I hope not," Marsak wrote via Instagram Stories, while Lopez never addressed the situation directly.

Lopez and Affleck have yet to speak publicly about the status of their marriage.
