Jennifer Lopez has told of how she's 'heartsick' and 'devastated' as she suddenly cancelled her summer tour, as rumours of a split between her and husband Ben Affleck continue to swirl.

The 54-year-old singer was set to go on the This Is Me... Live tour starting in June to mark her 55th birthday, which falls in July, however, it has been confirmed to MailOnline that she made the decision not to go ahead with the tour to 'be with her children'.

An official statement given to the publication read: "Representatives for Live Nation announced today that the Jennifer Lopez US Summer 2024 Tour THIS IS ME...LIVE is canceled.

"Jennifer is taking time off to be with her children, family and close friends," it was added.

Jennifer is mum to 16 year old twins, Max and Emme, whilst she plays the role of step-mother to Ben's children, Violet, 18, Fin, 15, and Samuel, 12.

In her own statement, released through her website, OntheJLo, Jennifer personally addressed her fans.

She said: "I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down,' the Hustlers star began.

"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…"

Jennifer and her husband, Ben Affleck, have recently been plagued by rumours of a split, as insiders claimed that Ben had moved out of the family home they share together.

They recently put on a united front as they attended the graduation party of Ben's 18 year old daughter, Violet. It came almost two weeks after they were last seen in public.

Prior to this, the couple hadn't been seen together in public since March. There are also whispers that J-Lo is allegedly searching for a place of her own away from Ben.

The duo got hitched in July 2022 following a second proposal. Their marriage has since faced intense scrutiny, particularly after Jennifer confessed their previous relationship "crumbled under the pressure".

In 2023 the pair’s relationship also came under the spotlight when they attended the Grammy Awards together and a clip of them sitting together went viral, leading some social media users to comment on how “bored” actor Ben seemed.

A week ago, Jennifer gave a tense five-word response to a reporter who asked her about her marriage to Ben.

A video posted by El Gordo y la Flaca show on Univision, showed the interviewer asking if the rumours about her and Ben splitting are true. The question was immediately shut down by an announcer while Jennifer was seen laughing it off and then looking straight at the interviewer said: "You know better than that."
