Amid claims from insiders that “a divorce is imminent” between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, TMZhas revealed that the Hollywood power couple has already hired a realtor to help them sell the home they share.

Lopez and Affleck hired Santiago Arana from The Agency, who has allegedly been “showing the house for around two weeks” with no buyer in sight yet. The timing also aligns with the period the divorce rumors about the couple began swirling.

According to the news outlet, Lopez and Affleck are asking for “around $65 million” for the massive property. However, this would mean that they would suffer a loss due to the amount spent improving the home and other costs, such as the broker’s commission.

A source told In Touch that the couple experienced a rough patch, which led to Affleck moving out of their $60 million home as they “just couldn’t make it work.”

The actor has since been staying at a house in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. He allegedly “decided to call it quits” on their marriage and has been focusing on his new movie, “The Accountant 2.”

“The writing is on the wall – it’s over,” the source stated, adding, “They’re headed for a divorce – and for once, [Ben’s] not to blame!”

“He’s focusing on his work and his kids now,” the insider went on. “Ben already moved out, and they’ll likely have to sell the dream house they spent two years searching for.”
