Tour promoter LiveNation said it was canceled because the mom-of-two is "taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends".

While Jennifer and Ben face continued public speculation about the status of their marriage amid reports the pair are living separately as they work on their marriage, they have both been photographed separately wearing their wedding rings recently.

Ben and Jen were pictured together on May 30 2024 for the first time in weeks, snapped in Los Angeles on their way to a graduation party for Ben and ex-wife Jennifer Garner's daughter Violet, who recently graduated from high school.

Ben wore a gray blazer with slacks and a white button down, carrying a wicker basket with pink gift wrapping inside, presumably a big gift for Violet, while Jennifer wore a floral plunging maxi dress with oversized sunglasses.

Later that day they were also pictured walking hand-in-hand leaving her graduation ceremony.

The pair, known to fans as Bennifer, first dated in 2002 and were engaged until 2003. They later both married other partners, JLo to singer Marc Anthony and Ben to actress Jennifer Garner, and welcomed their own kids, before they rekindled their romance in 2021 and got married in 2022.

Ben revealed in his wife's 2024 documentary The Greatest Love Story Never Told that he wanted to keep their relationship private.

"Getting back together, I said, 'Listen, one of the things I don't want is a relationship on social media,'", Ben said, opening up on their differences.

"And then I sort of realized it's not a fair thing to ask. It's sort of like you're gonna marry a boat captain and you go, 'Well, I don't like the water.' We're just two people with kind of different approaches trying to learn to compromise."
