Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were recently seen ‘hanging out’ in Los Angeles after Jennifer’s split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck dated between 2002 and 2003. Earlier this month, Jennifer also confirmed her split from her fiancé Alex. She said in a statement that they were ‘better off as friends.’
Ben Affleck has been seen several times going to Lopez’s California home during the day.
According to sources, “Security picks him up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house.”
Affleck has allegedly visited Lopez around three times since she came back after shooting her new film, “Shotgun Wedding.” A source said: “They are friends … they’ve never not been.”
Jennifer and Ben Affleck were considered to be one of the most famous couples of all time.
The couple was also known as ‘Bennifer’ by the fans. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck met on the sets of “Gigli.” Jennifer Lopez was married to dancer Criss Judd at that time. Jennifer Lopez and Judd got separated after one year, and a few months later, Jennifer Lopez confirmed her romance with Ben Affleck.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got engaged and were admired by their fans. “We didn’t try to have a public relationship. We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids, and it was like ‘Oh my God.’ It was just a lot of pressure,” Lopez said about her romance with Ben Affleck.
However, the split of Jennifer Lopez and Ben shocked their fans. Just one day before their nuptials, Jennifer and Ben Affleck postponed the ceremony.
In January 2004, the pair announced their separation. “Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Affleck. At this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy,” a source added at that time. After some years later, Lopez spoke. “I think different time different thing, who knows what could’ve happened, but there was a genuine love there,” she said in 2016.
The Oscar-winning actor was earlier married to actress Jennifer Garner.
Ben has always been open about being in contact with Jennifer Lopez. He was seen praising her in an article by saying, “She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business. She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”
