Hollywood couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck most recently made appearances together in Los Angeles. They crushed rumors of the duo splitting up in the near future. Though the two have been married for almost a little less than two years, gossip about the duo leading separate lives and even a possible strife in their marital paradise is gaining storm.

Both were seen out together in a public appearance so as to display a united front and, at least through body language, put to rest the trending narrative of a split between them. Their day out started on the left on May 19, with a private family affair during which the two were snapped in the car with wide grins from ear to ear before walking into the upscale BOA Steakhouse located in West Hollywood, according to TMZ.

Lopez was spotted in green pants wrapped with a green trench coat over a set of a cream sweater; Affleck, however, was more dressed down in jeans and a grey t-shirt labeled "Full Throttle, Believe in Boston."

Public Reunion Amidst Rumors

The appearance of the couple in public happened only two days after those reports that Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, had parted ways in life.

Previously, the publications mentioned that such divorces do not mean that it is the end of the road for both of them as they were both spotted wearing their wedding rings on May 16, which still gave them hope. And the duo, lovingly referred to as "Bennifer," rekindled their romance in 2021, nearly two decades after their initial engagement had been dropped.

Their happy ending is coming in the form of a July 2022 wedding in Las Vegas, and a much bigger party in Georgia. The singer summed up her feelings about their union in an eloquent post on The JLo's. "Love is beautiful. Love is kind.

And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted." All this, Lopez, a mother of 16-year-old twins Max and Emme from her marriage to second husband Anthony, and Affleck, a father to three children from his marriage to Jennifer Garner, have managed to co-parent around.

In 2022, the singer told Zane Lowe, when discussing their first split, that it was "probably my first big heartbreak", caused largely due to non-stop media pressure. As they go on and surf the storm of conjectured affair, Lopez and Affleck's latest out-and-abouts only prove their firmness and commitment toward each other.
