Jennifer Lopez was recently spotted enjoying a sunny getaway in Italy, amid ongoing marital strain with her husband, Ben Affleck.

The singer and actress was photographed aboard a boat on Tuesday, June 18, looking radiant in a cream-colored bandeau top paired with multicolored shorts and gold peep-toe heels.

Accessorizing with a Christian Dior Hat Basket Bag and gold sunglasses, Lopez appeared to be in high spirits as she soaked up the sun and enjoyed time with companions on the water.

Notably absent from this outing was her husband, Ben Affleck, with whom Lopez has reportedly been experiencing marital difficulties.

Sources told PEOPLE on Wednesday that Lopez, 54, has been making plans to travel this summer amid these tensions.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2022, have been dealing with strain in their marriage, leading to a series of personal adjustments.

Live Nation announced on May 31 that Lopez canceled her planned concert tour to spend more time with her children, family, and close friends.

This decision seems to align with her recent travel plans, as she prioritizes her personal life during this challenging period.

Adding to the speculation about their relationship, Lopez and Affleck have been quietly trying to sell their $61 million Beverly Hills home, which they bought together in 2023.

While Lopez continues to live at the house, Affleck has been staying at a rental property a few miles away. Despite the physical distance, sources say the couple still sees each other every few days

The duo has maintained a friendly relationship and has been seen together at family events.

Recently, they attended a graduation party for Affleck’s 12-year-old son, Samuel, alongside his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, at a rental home in Brentwood, California.

During this event, both Lopez and Affleck wore their wedding rings, indicating that they are still committed to working through their issues.

Lopez shared a heartfelt message to Affleck on Instagram for Father’s Day, calling him “our hero.” This public display of affection suggests that, despite their current challenges, there is still a strong bond between the two.

Lopez is the mother of 16-year-old twins, Max and Emme, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Affleck shares three children with Garner: Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12.

The blended family has often been seen together, demonstrating their commitment to co-parenting and maintaining family unity.

Lopez’s love for Italy is well-documented. Despite her claim of not being a big vacation person, she has expressed her affection for the country, especially the south of Italy.

In a 2023 interview with Travel + Leisure, Lopez shared her admiration for the region, recounting how she enjoyed spending consecutive summers there.

Her Italian vacation is just the latest in a series of memorable getaways. In previous years, Lopez and Affleck have enjoyed summer trips to France and Italy, including their honeymoon in Milan and Lake Como in 2022, and a birthday trip to Capri, a favorite destination among celebrities.

The singer and actress’s current trip to Italy might be seen as a way for her to find solace amid the turbulence in her personal life.

Her enjoyment of the scenic and relaxing environment suggests that she is taking the time to rejuvenate and reflect.

As Lopez continues her travels, fans and observers alike hope that the time away will provide her with the peace and clarity she needs.

The future of her marriage with Affleck remains uncertain, but their willingness to appear together at family events and Lopez’s public declarations of love indicate that they are not giving up easily.

For now, Jennifer Lopez seems to be making the most of her Italian getaway, embracing the beauty and tranquility of the Mediterranean.

Whether this trip will serve as a turning point in her personal life remains to be seen, but it is clear that Lopez is determined to navigate these challenges with grace and strength.
