BEN Affleck’s girlfriend Ana de Armas is looking for $35k per month rental homes in Los Angeles after splitting from the actor.
The Knives Out actress moved into the Oscar winner’s Los Angeles $20 million, 13,453-square-foot mansion in Pacific Palisades earlier this year as their relationship got serious during the pandemic.
After news broke on Monday that the couple had split, it's been revealed that Ana, 32, is now looking at rental homes in LA – focusing on addresses across town from Ben.
An insider told Page Six: “She’s been looking at houses in the $25,000 to $35,000 range in West Hollywood for herself. On the opposite side of town from Ben.”
Following rumors the couple had drifted apart a source confirmed to PEOPLE that they have indeed gone separate ways after being together for almost a year.
The source revealed: "Ben is no longer dating Ana.
"She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles."
A second source added: "This is something that was mutual and something that is completely amicable.
"They are in different points in their lives and there is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. He has three jobs lined up and he’s a solid father at home.
"They are both happy with where they are in their lives."
The sad news comes just two days after a source told InTouch that the “honeymoon phase” was over “when they moved in together.”
The source explained: “Ana rocketed to stardom since dating Ben and has a bunch of movies lined up.
“She’s young, ambitious and her career will always come first.
“While Ben wants her to succeed, he’s needy and feels lost and lonely when she’s off gallivanting the world without him.”
The 32-year-old began dating Ben, 48, in early 2020 and moved in together months later.
According to the insider, Ben’s dynamic with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 48, has heavily impacted his new relationship.
“[Jennifer Garner’s] whole life revolved around Ben and the kids when they were married.
“That’s what he’s used to, but Ana is more independent,” the informant revealed.

He hosted the holiday meal with Ana and his three kids in attendance.
The couple went public with their relationship in early 2020, after meeting on the set of Deep Water in November 2019.
