J.Lo has reportedly put her foot down during the 'Atlas' press junket, and for good reason, as rumors about her troubled marriage to Ben Affleck persisted despite attempts to dismiss them.

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez has been on a whirlwind promotional tour for her upcoming Netflix film, "Atlas". However, amidst career excitement, Lopez has had to navigate the swirling rumors about her marriage to Ben Affleck. To maintain professional decorum, Lopez, 54, reportedly banned all questions about her marriage during the promotional events, including the Hollywood and Mexico City premieres.

According to sources cited by TMZ, "Netflix alerted all the media outlets covering the Hollywood and Mexico City premieres for Atlas that no Ben Affleck, and no personal queries were allowed." To keep the focus on the film rather than her personal life, Lopez only participated in group interviews accompanied by her co-stars Simu Liu and Sterling K. Brown.

Despite these clear boundaries, a reporter at the Mexico City premiere on May 22 breached protocol by directly asking Lopez whether her rumored divorce from Affleck was real. In response, Lopez firmly stated, "You know better than that," while Liu interjected to shut down the unsolicited question, saying, "Okay, we're not doing that. Thank you so much, guys, we really appreciate it."

Speculation about the status of Bennifer - Lopez and Affleck's widely-followed relationship - has been growing. The couple, who rekindled their romance and married in 2022 after initially being engaged in the early 2000s, has been living apart.

Affleck, 51, was noticeably absent from the recent red carpets, which Lopez attended solo. While Affleck was seen wearing his wedding ring on the set of "The Accountant 2," separate reports indicate that he is focusing on work and his children.

Inside sources have suggested that the couple is dealing with significant issues. One source told In Touch that their marriage was "over," claiming, "The writing is on the wall - it's over. They're headed for a divorce - and for once, Ben's not to blame!" Another insider revealed that Lopez was "hiring crisis PR to help navigate the divorce" and suggested that legal proceedings were "imminent."

A source close to Affleck shared that if there were grounds to divorce based on "temporary insanity," he would consider it, describing the past two years as feeling like "a fever dream."

However, Affleck's friend, Jason Mewes, expressed skepticism about the rumors, saying he found the couple's relationship sincere and real.

While Lopez's request for media to respect her personal boundaries during the "Atlas" press tour is understandable, the public remains curious about what the future holds for one of Hollywood's most talked-about couples.
