Jennifer Lopez or Ben Affleck were both unhappy with the Beverly Hills mansion they purchased for $61 million last year. 

Following reports that the couple quietly put their marital home on the market last week, sources are shedding light behind the Atlas actress, 54, and 51-year-old Oscar winner’s decision to list the property. 

‘Ben never liked the house. It’s too far away from his kids,’ an insider close to Lopez told People

The Gone Girl star co-parents his three children Samuel, 12, Fin, 15 and Violet, 18, with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner, who lives in the Pacific Palisades.

Meanwhile, the singer, who shares 16-year-old twins Emme and Max from prior marriage to Marc Anthony, feels the 12-bedroom house is simply ‘way too big for her.’

The pair, who are rumored to have been ‘living apart’ for weeks, famously toured  more than 80 properties together to find the perfect place to live with their blended family. 

Affleck and Lopez have hired realtor Santiago Arana, from The Agency, to sell the property. 

Amid rumors that ‘divorce is imminent’ for the pair, a source told TMZ that their relator has been ‘showing the house for around 2 weeks’ but has not secured a buyer yet. 

The insider reported that ‘they’re asking around $65 million for the house.’

With the ‘significant money’ the duo put into improvements, the outlet said they would be taking a ‘loss of millions of dollars.’

TMZ also reported that Lopez is ‘already looking for a new house’ as Affleck stays at a 100K-per-month rental in Brentwood, near Garner.

Earlier this week, DailyMail.com reported that photographs of their marital home’s lavish interior have popped up on realtor websites after being removed following the property’s sale to the couple last May.

DailyMail.com determined that these new photos were uploaded to real estate site Zillow.com on June 1 and June 5. The house is still listed as sold.

Following reports that the couple quietly put their marital home on the market earlier this month, sources are shedding light behind the Atlas actress, 54, and 51-year-old Oscar winner's decision to list the property

The couple bought the home and paid for it with cash after a two-year-search for their dream home in what was supposedly a fairytale ending to their decade’s long love story.

Last week, fifty images including an exterior shot of the palatial property lit up and glowing against the Los Angeles sky are visible across multiple real estate sites where once there were none.

A description of the property has also been uploaded describing the Wallingford estate, on which the property sits, as an exclusive 6-acre promontory. The lot includes not only the main building but an adjacent additional house providing 10,000 square feet of guest accommodation along with a caretaker house.

There are garages for 15 cars and parking for 80 and an outdoor sports complex with basketball, pickleball, gym and boxing ring and bar as well as a 150 degrees zero edge pool.

The move has sparked speculation that the 17-bedroom, 43,000square foot property is set to be put quietly back on the market.

A representative for J-Lo pointed out that the images themselves are not new.

It is just the latest indicator that all is not well with the A-listers who eloped to Las Vegas in July 2022 before celebrating their union across several days – and several gowns – in Georgia the following month.

Earlier this month, J-Lo shocked fans by abruptly cancelling the US leg of her ‘This is Me Now’ tour for which sales had proved disappointing.

In a statement she described herself as ‘completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down.’

She continued, ‘I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary. I promise I’ll make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time.’

The reason the actress and singer gave for pulling out of her long-standing commitment was that she was ‘taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends.’

It did not go unnoticed that her husband did not rate a mention.

According to In Touch the stars are in couple’s therapy and Garner has proved an unlikely champion and support of her ex’s marriage to J Lo.

The couple has rarely been photographed together in more than two months – at one point going through a 50 day stretch of never being spotted together. And J Lo has turned up to a series of significant events – the premier of her Netflix movie Atlas and the Met Gala – solo.

A source told TMZ that Affleck could not attend the Met event because he was busy filming ‘The Accountant 2’ across the country. Yet he found time to attend Tom Brady’s roast one day earlier.

Meanwhile, though J Lo has consistently worn her wedding ring, Affleck has been seen both with and without his.
