During the promotion of her new Netflix movie “Atlas” in Mexico, Jennifer Lopez faced questions about the rumors surrounding her alleged split from husband Ben Affleck. When asked directly about it, she responded, “You know better than that.”

In the background, JLo’s co-star, Simu Liu, intervened, stating, “OK, we’re not doing that,” and then added, “Come on, don’t come in here with that energy, please. Thank you so much.”

Despite her response, body language expert Judi James believes JLo displayed signs that suggest otherwise. “Lopez is no stranger to high-profile marriage and high-profile divorce, so she must have been expecting questions like this one, given all the recent speculation about her relationship with Ben.

The fact that her body language here makes her appear wrong-footed and awkward might not go far then in terms of the reassurance fans are hoping for.”

Judi continued: “When the question about their relationship comes from the audience, her initial reaction is to keep the mic to her mouth as though willing to speak, but she lets out an explosive laugh into it instead.

“Tellingly, her ring hand lifts from her knee as though forming a silent signal of solidity, but then she seems to stuff the hand between her knees instead, looking at her host while acting bouncy and smiling.

“Jen cocks her head as she looks across in a gesture of likeability,” Judi added. “She then seems to try to take control, leaning onto her knees with a serious facial expression. ‘You know better than that’ is her line here, while the ring hand fiddles. Her body language announces ‘that’s it’ as she then wipes her ring hand on her leg and leans back and looks away.”

Earlier this week, InTouch magazine reported that Lopez and Affleck had ended their relationship, suggesting that Affleck had moved out of their shared home in Beverly Hills and had been staying at his Brentwood residence for the past week.

The couple was last photographed together in March in New York City.

Reports have indicated that the singer was looking for a separate residence from her husband.

Lopez and Affleck tied the knot in July 2022 after a second engagement. Since their marriage, their relationship has been heavily scrutinized, especially after Lopez revealed that their previous relationship had “crumbled under the pressure.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have not made any official statements regarding these rumors.
