Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck made their Grammy Awards debut last weekend, but what should've been a cute moment appeared sour.

The couple looked stunning as always with Lopez wearing a gorgeous blue dress and her husband in a dapper tuxedo, but fans couldn't get over Affleck's visible discomfort.

Affleck Had A Tense Grammy Moment

The actor looked like he'd rather be any place else than at the Grammys with his wife. Unfortunately, his front-row position put him in the camera's crosshairs, and he couldn't hide. One time, the award host, Trevor Noah, walked up to the couple's table for a quick interaction with JLo, and it wasn't pleasant.

Tense Interaction Went Viral

Before Noah arrived at their table, the camera caught Affleck and his wife in a tense verbal exchange, albeit in hushed tones.

Back On The Wagon?

A viral TikTok video showed JLo tasting Affleck's drink before looking at him disapprovingly leading fans to question if it had alcohol. The actor struggled with alcohol addiction but recently set himself straight.

It seems unlikely that Affleck would risk his new marriage to JLo after rekindling their romance last year. Also, it's a known fact that the actor often appears bored at industry events, whether it's the Oscars or Grammys, as we saw on Sunday.

Hiding From The Internet

The internet's choice to run with the alleged tensions is a reminder of their reason to keep their romance off social media this time. Lopez said in an interview that the pressure from the media and tabloids affected her and Affleck in the early 2000s leading to their breakup.

The couple is determined not to repeat history, so they live under the radar, but it's hard to do so when they're both global superstars. Lopez recently starred in a rom-com alongside Josh Duhamel and is promoting the movie right.

Meanwhile, Affleck has some movies lined up for release this year, from Air to The Flash and Hypnotic. It's unlikely Lopez took his meme-worthy bored expression personally, but we'll never truly know.

The couple rekindled their romance last year and got married in Vegas before holding a bigger ceremony for their friends and family.

Although Affleck has become the leading meme on the internet for his bored expressions, he always looks smitten with his wife.
