Looks like Ben Affleck got out of his wife’s “work event” Monday night.
Jennifer Lopez flew with her sister Lynda Lopez to New York for the Met Gala festivities, while the “Air” director stayed in Los Angeles.
Lynda, 51, shared a cute photo of herself and the “Jenny from the Block” singer hugging each other at Stella McCartney and Baz Luhrmann’s post-Met Gala party.
The journalist summed up her Instagram post on Tuesday with “#Aboutlastnight Staying up too late this week…#mamasnightout,”.
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s vocal coach, Stevie Mackey, became the singer’s plus on the prestigious Met Gala red carpet.
According to the Daily Mail’s report, Affleck was reportedly unable to make the starry night in Los Angeles due to “work commitments he couldn’t get rid of”.
Jennifer and Lynda have always maintained a close relationship. In July 2021, the author of “AOC: The Fearless Rise and Powerful Resonance of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” penned a sweet note for her sister in honor of her birthday.

“My original BFF, I love you more than words can say,” Lynda wrote next to a selfie of the couple at the time.
“You are not only the most fun, ride or die, you light up the world and show me what is possible and you are always my inspiration. Sometimes I can’t believe I am so lucky that God brought that beautiful soul, you, into my life.”
The single mother of her 14-year-old daughter, Lucie, Lynda is deeply admired by her sister.
“I love and respect him very much. She is a single mother but I am not a single mother. I have a lot of help—he doesn’t,’ Jennnifer said in a Cosmopolitan interview in 2013.
“It’s always ‘Do you need anything?’ I ask,” he added.
“And it’s like, ‘I’m fine. But I know you’re tired.”
Affleck’s absence has undoubtedly been missed by many, who were delighted with his facial expressions as he accompanied his wife to the Grammy Awards earlier this year.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she thought her seemingly grumpy demeanor had gone viral.
“I had a good time at the Grammys,” he shared. “My wife was leaving and I thought, ‘There will be good music. It can be fun.’ Such as speeches at movie award ceremonies and webinars with audio mixes. But I thought it would be fun.”
He continued: “I saw [Grammy host Trevor Noah approach] and I said, ‘Oh my god. They were trapping us in this shot, but I didn’t know they were rolling. I leaned towards him and said, ‘As soon as it starts to roll, I’ll walk away from you and leave you with Trevor. “You’d better not go,” he says. It’s a husband and wife thing.”
The “Fargo” star admitted that this was his wife’s “business” affair.
“And I went to events and got angry. I went and got bored.”
