It originally appeared on E! Online

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are still living the greatest love story ever told.

The pair, who have recently been the subject of breakup rumors, stepped out for a family outing at the YMCA in Hollywood, California on June 2.

Affleck and Lopez were photographed sharing some subtle PDA as they headed to the recreation center to watch the Oscar winner’s 12-year-old son Samuel play basketball. They were joined for the sporting event by Affleck’s mother Chris Anne Boldt, as well as his ex-wife Jennifer Garner – with whom he shares Samuel, as well as Violet, 18, and Seraphina, 15.

For the occasion, Affleck wore a red velvet jacket with fur lining, paired with a lighter red t-shirt with the phrase “The Dickens” emblazoned on the front with jeans. Meanwhile, the ‘On the Floor’ singer – who shares 16-year-old twins Emme and Max with ex Marc Anthony – wore a black long-sleeved T-shirt and jeans, teaming them with a black bag and aviator sunglasses brown shade. And Lopez even gave her man a peck on the cheek in front of the cameras.

The couple’s joint outing comes amid a tumultuous time for the “Atlas” actress, who announced the cancellation of her “This Is Me…Live” tour just two days before.

“I am completely heartbroken and devastated that I let you down,” the 54-year-old wrote in her May 31 OnTheLo post. “Please know that I would not do this unless I felt it was absolutely necessary. I promise I’ll make it up and we’ll be together again.”

“I am completely heartbroken and devastated that I let you down,” the singer said in a statement.

The “Selena” star’s tour cancellation follows weeks of speculation about the state of her and Affleck’s relationship, with multiple outlets reporting the couple are living apart. However, the pair, who tied the knot in July 2022 nearly two decades after calling off their first engagement, have been spotted out together several times, including another family event on May 31.

But amid the rumours, Affleck and Lopez have yet to speak out about their relationship status.

After all, when asked to share information during an “Atlas” press event in Mexico City, Lopez simply laughed before leaning into the microphone to offer a simple “You know better than that.”

However, they have opened up about how interest in their relationship has rocked them in the past, with the ‘Let’s Get Loud’ singer saying they broke off their first engagement in 2004, just days before their wedding, due to a ‘ massive amounts of control”.

“All these years, it was really hard,” Lopez recalled of her time away from Affleck in the documentary “The Greatest Love Story Never Told,” which was released earlier this year. “Because I didn’t just feel like I lost the love of my life, I felt like I lost the best friend I ever had.”
