Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez selling $60 million house, reports say divorce imminent

For those among you who count yourself fans of Ben Affleck and/or Jennifer Lopez (or at the very least find yourselves looking for updates as to their widely-reported marital struggles) we’ve got perhaps the biggest indication yet that divorce is, unfortunately, on the cards.

Much and more has been said over the past few weeks regarding the current shaky nature of Affleck and J-Lo’s union, and TMZ are claiming that the couple are quietly trying to sell the home they bought together after they married.

As per reports, the pair purchased the lavish Beverly Hills mansion for a figure in excess of an eye-watering $60 million last year. Sadly, though, Ben is said to have moved out of the house as his marriage to Jennifer is on the rocks.

The Dogma star is renting a place in Brentwood, California, while sources told TMZ that J-Lo is now looking for her own place.

The gossip site claim to have knowledge that ‘Bennifer’s’ home has been on the market for around two weeks, though at the time of writing no buyers have come forward.

Interestingly, it’s reported that the couple are looking to get back “around $65 million” for the property. Though it sounds a handsome sum indeed, the reality of the figure paints a more negative picture.


TMZ say that broker’s commission and a new tax on super-expensive properties – not to mention the money Ben and Jennifer poured into the place for home improvements – mean they would take a loss of millions of dollars if they were to sell.

And that, dear readers, implies to me that they’re approaching the ‘sell at any costs’ stage, which in turn implies that they’re not of a mind to sit steady in the boat and see if they can’t turn things around regarding their marriage.

On the contrary, the attempt at selling their home is arguably the strongest piece of evidence yet that the pair are headed for divorce.

Last week, you’ll surely remember, Lopez canceled her planned tour of North America to be with her family.

“I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary,” the superstar wrote.

“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…”

Meanwhile Ben has been spotted numerous times without his engagement ring, while the couple’s most recent public outing together – when they met last weekend to watch Ben’s son in a basketball game – did little to inspire confidence that they were working through their problems.

Do you think Ben and Jennifer are inevitably headed for divorce? Let us know thoughts in the comments.
