Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez selling $61 million mansion because neither of them like it, claims source

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are putting their fairytale Beverly Hills mansion on the market, but it might not be the final nail in the coffin with regards to their divorce.

We reported yesterday that the A-list couple had placed their $61 million property up for sale only a year after having purchased it – that claim initially came from TMZ – and it should come as no surprise that it’s since been widely assumed that the reason was because ‘Bennifer’ are splitting up.

There have been all manner of reports in recent weeks concerning the harmony – or lack thereof – between Affleck and Lopez, and it’s been difficult to draw any conclusion, using the evidence at hand, that suggests the pair are committed to one another.

Affleck, if we’re to believe reports, has been living in a rental property for a while now, having moved out of the mansion he shares with J-Lo. Lopez, meanwhile, last week sensationally canceled her planned This is Me Now… Live tour of North America, stating that she wanted to spend time with her family.

Needless to say, the situation is far from sunshine and roses.

And yet the potential sale of their home – TMZ say they’ll take a loss on the property after broker’s fees and their own investments for renovations are factored in – might not be the death knell regarding to their marriage.

PEOPLE Magazine today cite a source as having detailed how neither Affleck nor Lopez have been happy with the house, and both have reasons that don’t necessarily relate to their love for one another.

“Ben never liked the house. It’s too far away from his kids,” the source, said to be close to Lopez, offered.

As for Lopez, they claimed: “the house is way too big for her.”

The 38,000 square-foot home in question boasts a reported “12 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, a 12-car garage and a pool, plus a sports complex with basketball and pickleball facilities, a gym and a boxing ring.”

Nothing to sneer at, I’m sure you’ll agree, but an idyllic mansion doesn’t always equate to a happy marriage. With Affleck having moved out – reportedly while he films The Accountant 2  and neither partner outright contradicting media reports claiming their marriage is on the slide, there’s certainly adequate space for conjecture to grow.
