Jennifer Lopez Cancels Her ‘This Is Me Live’ Tour Amid Ben Affleck Split Rumors

Jennifer Lopez has canceled her This Is Me … Live Tour following speculation of low ticket sales and family turmoil.

The news was announced via Live Nation and Lopez’s fan newsletter on Friday, May 31.

“Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends,” the email reads amid reports about her marital woes with Ben Affleck.

Lopez, 54, shared a “special message” to her followers in the email, writing, “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. Please know that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t feel that it was absolutely necessary. I promise I will make it up to you and we will all be together again. I love you all so much. Until next time …”

Fans will be “automatically” refunded if tickets were purchased through Ticketmaster.

Lopez and Affleck, who wed in 2022, have been making headlines for rumors that their marriage is on the rocks.

“They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour,” an insider exclusively told Us Weekly in May, explaining that Lopez’s focus on work has left her and Affleck “on two completely different pages most of the time.”

A second source told Us that Affleck, 51, moved out of the couple’s home “several weeks ago.” The pair continued to raise eyebrows when fans noticed that they hadn’t been spotted together since an outing on May 19.

Affleck and Lopez, however, arrived together to his eldest child, daughter Violet’s graduation party on Thursday, May 30, according to photos. (Daily Mail reported that they left the ceremony together before Lopez was seen leaving a house sans Affleck.)

Affleck shares Violet, 18, Seraphina, 15, and Samuel, 12, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner. Lopez, meanwhile, shares twins Max and Emme, 16, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Lopez previously cut five of her tour dates from the schedule without any explanation in March.

Shows in Nashville, Raleigh, Atlanta, Tampa and New Orleans — which were set to take place from August 22-30 — were canceled with no rescheduled dates, according to Ticketmaster.

Lopez didn’t directly comment on the cancellation, but she promoted a revised schedule of the U.S. leg of her tour via her Instagram Story on March 13.

The singer reportedly rebranded the tour in April as This Is Me… Live | The Greatest Hits Tour, per Variety.

Many speculated that the makeover was due to possible poor ticket sales, which followed a lackluster response to Lopez’s ninth studio album, This Is Me … Now, in February. The record peaked at No. 38 before dropping off the Billboard 200 album chart — making it Lopez’s least successful release to date. A source exclusively told Us in April that Lopez is “disappointed” over the underwhelming response to her musical projects, while a second insider says she’s “very focused” on what’s next and “doesn’t want bad press to get in her head.”

A third source told Us that “Jennifer is extremely proud of all the hard work she puts into her projects.”
