Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's reported marriage woes have been kicked up a notch after a new video surfaced online. 

The 54-year-old singer took to Instagram to promote products from her JLo Beauty line – but it was her naked ring finger that grabbed the attention.

Jennifer seemingly ditched her wedding ring to film the candid clip, which you can watch below, as she encouraged fans to "show off more of that skin" and feel "confident" this summer.

It appears to be the first time she has been spotted without her diamond sparkler, but Ben has been photographed several times not wearing his wedding band. 

However, it was just a few days ago that her wedding ring and massive green engagement ring were firmly in place in promotional images for her latest Coach campaign

There have also been other telling signs including the couple listing their $60 million marital home, Ben currently living in a rental, and Jennifer's solo trip to Europe

Speculation about trouble in Ben and JLo's marriage arose after the couple went nearly two months without being photographed together. 

However, they soon put on a united front when they were snapped reuniting on May 16 to watch Ben's child Fin Affleck, 15, perform in a school play in Los Angeles, and they have been pictured together several times since. 

Before attending Fin's play together, the last time the couple was spotted in public was March 30.

Jennifer has remained relatively quiet about the speculation surrounding her marriage, but she was put on the spot while promoting her Netflix movie Atlas in Mexico City on May 22. 

Sitting alongside her co-star, Simu Liu, Jennifer was suddenly asked by a reporter: "Is your divorce with Ben Affleck real?" Before the unidentified reporter added: "These rumors? What is the truth? Para le press le Mexicana, what is the truth of the situation?"

Simu jumped in to defend JLo and quipped: "We're not doing that. Thank you so much guys." 

Jennifer appeared to laugh it off but when the reporter could be heard continuing his line of questioning, she looked directly at him and said: "You know better than that." 

Simu added: "Don't come in with that energy, please."

Simu isn't the only Atlas co-star to defend her honor. Sterling K. Brown has also spoken out and insisted she and Ben were "very much in love" while he helped her run lines for the movie. 

"Every once in a while, Ben would read the lines for Smith," the This Is Us star said, referring to a character in the film.

He added: "I think the newlyweds — still very much in love — I think she just wanted to hear his voice. And so sometimes, the reactions that you got from her were because she was listening to her husband's voice."
