Jennifer Lopez Addresses ‘Negativity Out in the World Right Now’ as She Thanks Fans for Support

Jennifer Lopez addressed 'negativity' in the world in her new subscriber email on Thursday - amid Ben Affleck split rumors.

via People:

Her new sci-fi film Atlas held the No. 1 spot on Netflix’s English Films List and remained the streaming platform’s most-watched title for the second week in a row, per Netflix stats.

In a message shared via her OnTheJLo newsletter on June 5, Lopez wrote, “I just found out some great news and it’s all because of YOU!! ATLAS is #1 worldwide again this week!!! Thank you all so much!!!”

“It may seem like there’s a lot of negativity out in the world right now … but don’t let the voices of a few drown out that there is soooo much love out there,” she continued. “Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I love you all so much.”

In the film, Lopez, also a producer behind it, stars as Atlas Shepherd, described as a “brilliant but misanthropic data analyst with a deep distrust of artificial intelligence.” The futuristic movie’s plot involves “saving the future of humanity from AI.”

Atlas is directed by Brad Peyton and also stars Simu Liu, Sterling K. Brown, Gregory James Cohan, Abraham Popoola, Lana Parrilla and Mark Strong.

The Mother, Lopez’s action film from May 2023, became a massive hit for Netflix last year and is currently No. 9 on the list of the platform’s most-watched movies of all time.

Though Lopez did not clarify what “negativity” she was speaking about in her memo to fans, the release of Atlas came amid speculation about her marriage with Ben Affleck. Sources have told PEOPLE their relationship is “not in the best place” as the pair are living separately in recent weeks.

Lopez canceled her summer concert tour last week to instead spend time with family and friends.

About that announcement, she said in a statement to her fans, “I am completely heartsick and devastated about letting you down. 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,” added Lopez. “I love you all so much. Until next time.”

Is this letter really to her fans, or to herself? Because I'm confused as to what negativity is she speaking about? No one decided to wake up and throw 1000 pounds of negativity in her direction.

The vitriol all started when she released her latest album, the based-on-a-true-story (but not really) Prime Video musical and documentary, a tour announcement and the Netflix film.

People weren't buying into this current JLo era, and also because she's overexposed a lot of her business endeavors have backfired, as well as her marriage.

I just saw on Daily Mail that her $65 million mansion with Ben is listed on Zillow, so I truly believe a divorce is definitely on the horizon.

Girl just disappear for about a year, clean house (that means fire your manager Benny Medina), get a new team, and figure out a rebrand for your music career. The acting thing you have on lock. It's the music that's the issue because it just seems to me that you've aged out of the current demographic.
