Later on, Lopez and Rodriguez announced their engagement in 2019, and they split this year in April amid cheating rumours of the latter, after which Jlo reunited with Affleck. Also, earlier this month Jlo and Ben were spotted kissing at a Malibu restaurant, which clears what many are suspecting, that after 17 long years the couple is again romantically involved.
