Why J.Lo Is Still Fighting

STILL WEARING HER RING, JENNIFER LOPEZ IS SHARING HER SIDE OF THE STORY BEHIND HER MARITAL WOES WITH BEN AFFLECK - AND WHY SHE'S STILL HOPING THE TWO WILL RECONCILE.
Why J.Lo Is Still Fighting

JENNIFER LOPEZ wasn’t going to let some marriage trouble stop her from promoting her brand. In a May 29 video shared to Instagram, the 54-year-old, dressed in a slinky green slitted skirt and bikini top, strutted her stuff in the backyard of the $60 million home she purchased with husband Ben Affleck, 51, before introducing her latest product, Delola Light Margaritas.

Jenny from the Block knows how to hustle — she even starred in a movie called Hustlers! Now, with her marriage crumbling and some serious career wobbles, she’s working harder than ever. “It was a terrible blow to her ego that her album did so poorly and ticket sales to her concerts were way below expectations,” an insider tells Star. And Ben moving out to a $100K a month rental before the couple, who reunited after 20 years, could celebrate their second wedding anniversary has put her on the defensive. “She’s going about her usual business with the attitude that this is just a temporary hitch,” reveals the insider. “She still thinks she and Ben are meant to be together and the feeling is she’s just tolerating this unpleasantness until Ben realizes the same thing.”
