Ben Affleck’s love don’t cost a thing — except a tour.

Jennifer Lopez reportedly canceled her “This Is Me… Live | The Greatest Hits” tour in order to “save” her and the actor’s “doomed” marriage.

The singer’s friends told the Daily Mail Thursday that Lopez, 54, is “willing to make any sacrifice, including giving up being J.Lo” and “dimming her shine.”

One pal claimed, “She doesn’t want to be divorced. She doesn’t want to end up like Madonna — on her own at 60. She can’t bear the idea of failure.”

The report also pointed out that tickets had been 78 percent sold out after an initial struggle to sell them, with a source saying, “If [she] had done this [cancellation] early on, then it would have been about ticket sales because they did start slow, but it was not.”

The “heartsick and devastated” performer made her tour cancellation announcement last week, with Live Nation reps blaming her step back on spending time with “children, family and close friends.”

In addition to the reveal, Lopez has been “toning down her look … to try to hang onto the marriage,” the Daily Mail’s insider alleged.

The friend pointed out that the actress even “lets” Affleck, 51, smoke, adding, “She won’t give up this relationship.”

Lopez’s rep has yet to return Page Six’s request for comment.

Speculation began swirling in May that Lopez and Affleck were headed for divorce nearly two years after their Las Vegas wedding, with the “Gigli” co-stars living in separate homes.

While Lopez has yet to directly comment on the rumors, she did shut down a bold reporter who asked about her marital woes.

“You know better than that,” the “Let’s Get Loud” singer said during her “Atlas” press tour.

Although Affleck skipped out on both of her Netflix movie’s premieres to film “The Accountant 2,” the pair have since put on a united front with multiple outings.

Not only did they spend Sunday at his son Samuel’s basketball game, but they also made a joint appearance at his daughter Violet’s graduation party.

However, Lopez left on her own after just one hour.

The Grammy nominee has been married three times before, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd and Marc Anthony.

Lopez also made headlines for ending her high-profile engagement to Alex Rodriguez before reconciling her romance with Affleck.

As for the “Gone Girl” star, he and Jennifer Garner separated in 2005 after 10 years of marriage and three children.
