Is Bennifer back together after nearly two decades? Following her public split from Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have ignited rumors by hanging out at her Los Angeles mansion.
Jennifer Lopez is leaning on a different former fiancé, Ben Affleck, for support after her divorce from her fiancé Alex Rodriguez.
According to images obtained by Page Six, Jennifer, 51, and Ben, 48, have reunited now that they’re both newly single. On Friday, April 30, he was seen being picked up and dropped off at the singer’s Los Angeles mansion.
According to an eyewitness, Ben left his Mercedes at Hotel Bel-Air before being picked up and taken to her house up the lane. J.Lo’s Escalade left her house in the afternoon and dropped Ben off at the hotel with his backpack in tow. According to the witness, “he got his Mercedes and left.”
But don’t get your hopes up: J.Lo and Ben are currently on a platonic relationship. A source tells Diginews.live, “They’re just friends.”
The ex-couple met on the set of her film Gigli and married in 2002 before divorcing in 2004.
Ben married Jennifer Garner the next year, but the couple famously divorced in 2015 after he was accused of having an affair with their nanny. Ben has been single since he and Knives Out breakout Ana de Armas called it quits in January 2021.
Jennifer recently revealed her split from A.Rod in a joint statement on April 15, saying, “We’ve realised how much closer we are as partners, and we want to keep it that way. We’ll continue to collaborate and encourage one another on our joint ventures and initiatives.”
“Once her confidence is lost, there’s no turning back,” a source told Diginews.live. J.Lo called it off because she had “not been happy for a while now,” according to a source.
Jennifer has been married three times before, despite the fact that she did not complete the weddings to Ben or A.Rod. From 1997 to 1998, she was married to Ojani Noa, and from 2001 to 2003, she was married to Cris Judd (though they separated the year prior). From 2004 to 2014, she was married to Marc Anthony, the father of her 13-year-old twins.
Now that the stars seem to have finally aligned for a Bennifer reunion, she’s not wasting any time reconnecting with an old flame.
Ben has mentioned that he communicates with the World of Dance judge on a regular basis. He praised her in an article for InStyle earlier this month, and he said, “She is still, to this day, the hardest worker I’ve ever met in this industry. She has great talent, but she has also put in a lot of effort to achieve her success, and I’m so happy for her that she is finally getting the recognition she deserves.”
“Why do you look the same as you did in 2003, and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s… at best?” the father of three wondered.
Jennifer responded by calling him “funny” and joking, “He always looks pretty good too.”
She opened up about her engagement to the Justice League star in 2016, revealing that she had true feelings for him.
“I think different times, different things, who knows what could’ve happened,” she told People. “But there was a real love there.” “We didn’t try to make it a public affair… We happened to be in the same room when the tabloids first appeared, and it was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was simply a lot of stress.”
Ben was J.Lo’s “first major heartbreak,” and she “loved” having the show-stopping 6.1 carat pink diamond engagement ring, she previously confessed.
Despite her meetings with Ben, J.Lo has maintained a positive relationship with Alex, 45. Only eight days ago, the baseball player flew to Los Angeles to see his ex-girlfriend in an attempt to make amends.
“He refuses to give up on their relationship and is willing to go to any length to save it. He stayed with her for two nights to try to sort things out “E! News obtained information from a source close to J.Lo. “He keeps attempting to demonstrate to her how serious he is and how much he loves her.”
Ben and Jen’s representatives have been contacted for comment by Diginews.live.
