Jennifer Lopez put on an effortlessly stylish display in West Hollywood on Friday as she showed off her wedding ring as she continues to keep the focus on her marriage to Ben Affleck amid rumors.

The 54-year-old On The Floor singer – who recently appeared dejected in LA after spreading a message of “negativity” in the wake of her tour cancellation – was seen stepping out of a sleek SUV as she arrived at her office.

Earlier this month, the couple's $60 million mansion appeared on real estate websites like Zillow – shortly after Affleck, 51, reportedly moved into a rental apartment in Brentwood that costs him $100,000 a month.

At her last appearance, Lopez wore flared jeans and a black long-sleeved shirt.

She slipped into a pair of nude open-toe high heels and easily carried a large brown tote bag to store the things she needed during her busy day.

Her curls were tied back in a sleek ponytail to prevent loose strands from falling into her face.

As accessories, Jennifer completed the look with gold earrings and fashionable sunglasses.

There are rumors of marital trouble between Lopez and Affleck, who tied the knot in July 2022: The couple are reportedly living “separated” and the singer canceled her “This Is Me…Live” tour earlier this month.

On Thursday, the beauty was spotted being driven around Los Angeles shortly after sharing a message about “negativity.”

In her newsletter OntheJLo, published on Wednesday, she wrote: “It may seem like there is a lot of negativity in the world right now.”

“But don't let the voices of a few drown out the fact that there is soooo much love out there,” she added, while calling out to her fans, “Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you all so much.”

Last Sunday, Jennifer and Ben met again to cheer on his 12-year-old son Samuel, whom he has with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, at his basketball game.

The two stars were seen meeting outside the venue and exchanging an awkward air kiss, after which Affleck gently patted Lopez on the shoulder.

Garner was also there to support her son, and Ben's mother Chris also came along for the celebrations.

After attending the game, Ben and Jennifer later had a bite to eat together at the nearby Jack in the Box.

Chris left the YMCA with the 30 Going on 30 star and was seen helping the actress herself into Garner's car.

Lopez and Affleck had traveled to the game separately; the singer had spent time with her 15-year-old daughter Emme at a farmers market in LA earlier that day.

Additionally, missing photos of the lavish interiors of their $60 million marital home surfaced on real estate agent websites earlier this month. They disappeared after the couple sold the property last May.

DailyMail.com found 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 house, paying cash, after two years of searching for their dream home, marking the fairytale conclusion to their decades-long love story.

Today, fifty photos can be seen on numerous real estate sites where there were none before, including an exterior shot of the palatial estate illuminated against the Los Angeles sky.

Additionally, a property description has been uploaded, describing the Wallingford estate on which the property is located as an exclusive 6-acre foothill property.

The property includes not only the main building, but also an adjacent additional house with 930 square meters of guest accommodation and a caretaker's house.

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

The move has sparked speculation that the 4,000-square-foot, 17-bedroom property will quietly come back on the market.

However, a spokesman for Lopez pointed out that the images themselves were not new.

Earlier last week, Lopez canceled her This Is Me…Live tour to spend time with her family.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, it said: “Representatives of Live Nation announced today that Jennifer Lopez's 2024 US summer tour THIS IS ME…LIVE has been cancelled.”

In a statement to DailyMail.com, they said: “Representatives of Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour THIS IS ME…LIVE is cancelled.”
A source told DailyMail.com that the decision to cancel the tour was “difficult” for the singer, adding that the decision not to go ahead with the concerts had nothing to do with poor ticket sales.

“Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends. For all those who purchased their tickets through Ticketmaster, the purchase price will be automatically refunded – fans do not need to do anything else.”

“If you purchased through third-party resale sites such as SeatGeek, StubHub, VividSeats, etc., please contact your place of purchase for more information.”

And on the star's website OntheJLo, Lopez personally addressed the cancellation of the tour, saying: “I am deeply saddened and devastated for letting you down.”

“Please remember that I wouldn't do this if I didn't feel it was absolutely necessary. I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time…”

“She is taking time off to be with her family and close friends. Jennifer made a very difficult decision this week and she is sorry to her fans.”

Another source recently told Entertainment Tonight that both Ben and Jennifer want to “fix” their difficult marriage.

“Jen is under pressure because of all her work commitments, and Ben is more relaxed and doesn't care about Hollywood and all the stuff that comes with it. He thinks ups and downs are part of life and everyone has those moments.”

The insider added: “They resumed their relationship in the hope that problems from the past would not repeat themselves, but unfortunately that is the case for some.”

The source also explained: “Ben has tried to do his best with his career, co-parenting and being a good partner, but he feels overwhelmed.”

“Ben and Jen don't want to divorce and say they won't, but their relationship just isn't working right now.”

However, the insider told ET, “They are not done yet and want to make things right because they love each other, but they are also both unhappy.”

A close friend of Jennifer told DailyMail.com that the singer was “gloomy” over the alleged marital crisis and the cancellation of her tour.

“She took the blame for the end of the tour and the marriage and made fun of the whole world. That is the exact opposite of the truth,” the source said.

“Her Achilles heel has always been men. She is the most disciplined, hardworking, wonderful person and she really gets her way in everything – except when it comes to romance.”

“She wants this marriage to work so badly that she's willing to make any sacrifice, including giving up her role as J-Lo.”

A close friend of Jennifer told DailyMail.com that the singer was “devastated” by the alleged marital problems and the cancellation of her tour.
“I think you can already see her toning down her looks a bit and obviously giving up this tour to try and hold on to the marriage,” the insider continued.

The pal added: “She doesn't want a divorce. She doesn't want to end up like Madonna – alone at 60. She can't bear the thought of failure.”

“I think you can already see her toning down her looks a little bit and obviously giving up this tour to try and hold on to the marriage,” the insider continued.

“She lets him smoke, which is a big deal – she hates smoking and as a singer, smoking is a total no-go for her, but he never gave up when they were together and married.”

“She's not going to give up on this relationship. She's going to look as normal as possible. It's sad to see her dim her shine to keep it.”

A source recently told People that Jennifer and Ben “still want to put the kids first,” adding that the two “have always been very family-oriented.”

Lopez also recently reunited with Affleck to attend his daughter Violet's high school graduation and a celebratory party.

A source told People that for Jennifer and Ben, “the kids still come first,” adding that the two have “always been very family-oriented.”

“Graduation was a big deal. Jennifer wanted to celebrate,” the insider said, adding that the strains on their marriage were “heartbreaking for her.”

Affleck has 18-year-old Violet, 15-year-old Finn (formerly known as Seraphina) and 12-year-old Samuel with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. And Lopez has twins Max and Emme (16) with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
