Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have had doubts about the mansion they would buy after reportedly pulling back the $34.5 million security deposit on the house just days before signing on the dotted line.
It’s unclear why J.Lo, 53, who has been in dance rehearsals, and her new husband, 50, decided the huge house in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles wasn’t for them, according to TMZ.
The house offers seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms and is located in the prestigious Rustic Canyon.
It also has a six-car garage, a detached guest house, a swimming pool and dining room with fireplace and a chic bar.

More choices: Ben and Jen reportedly recently looked at other homes in the same area, including one for twice the asking price of the home they reportedly turned down (pictured in Los Angeles on Feb. 5)
Amenities: The home offers seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. It also has a six-car garage, detached guest house, swimming pool and dining room with a fireplace, as well as a chic bar, Jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen, according to the listing (pictured in Pacific Palisades Feb. 28).
On the terrace is a jacuzzi and outdoor kitchen, according to the listing.
In addition to a wine cellar, home gym and spa, the property’s main suite features a private balcony, double bathrooms and closets.
The outlet reported that Ben and Jen had recently viewed and looked at other homes in the same area, including one that was twice the price of the one they reportedly turned down.
The extensive search for a home for the newlywed couple and their blended family has been going on for about a year.
The couple was often photographed visiting expensive properties in Los Angeles.
At one point, it was thought that Jen and Ben would be renovating the All I Have singer’s grand mansion in Bel-Air with a move-in date set for later this year.
The Shotgun Wedding star has since put it on the market for $42.5 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It reportedly underwent renovations last August.
Before rejoining Ben in April 2021, Jennifer was squatting in Miami, Florida with her twins Max and Emme, 15. She shares her children with ex-husband Marc Anthony, 54.

Ben sold his $30 million home in Pacific Palisades this summer. He had bought it during his split from ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 50, in 2018. They share three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Sam, 11.
In a November 2022 Vogue article, J.Lo referred to the actress from The Adam Project as “a great co-parent” and said they worked well together.
The kids are top of mind for them, with the Marry Me star explaining, “They have so many feelings. They are teenagers. But so far it’s going very well.’
