How Jennifer Garner Feels About Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez Hanging Out

Is Jennifer Garner happy?

Jennifer Garner is not bothered by her ex-husband Ben Affleck’s meet-ups with his other ex, Jennifer Lopez.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were married from 2005 to 2015. Their divorce was finalized in 2018. Ever since their separation, they have been co-parenting their three kids, daughters Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and son Samuel, 9. 

On the other hand, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, better known as “Bennifer”, were also an item back in the day. The two started dating in 2002 and got engaged soon after, only to call it quits in 2004. That same year, he began dating Garner.

Cut to 2021, J.Lo has split up from Alex Rodriguez and was spotted “hanging out” with Ben several times.

But Ben Affleck spending time with the singer doesn’t have Jennifer Garner worried

“Jen isn’t bothered by Ben hanging out with J.Lo or anyone else. She wants what is best for Ben,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight.  

“What matters most to her is Ben being a great dad,” they added. “They’ve been in a good groove when it comes to co-parenting for a while and their kids’ happiness is Jen’s main priority.”

Another source told the entertainment portal that Ben and J.Lo’s relationship is purely platonic. “They obviously have a romantic history, but at this point they only have a friendship. They both admire each other professionally, respect one another and feel comfortable with each other.”

The two “have remained friends over the years and the two are still just that – friends,” yet another source shared.

What Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had was certainly real. In her 2014 memoir, True Love, the On The Floor singer said Affleck was “her first real heartbreak.”

Meanwhile, Affleck confessed last year that his divorce from Jennifer Garner is the “biggest regret of [his] life”.

“The biggest regret of my life is this divorce,” the Gone Girl actor told The New York Times. “I have certainly made mistakes. I have certainly done things that I regret. But you’ve got to pick yourself up, learn from it, learn some more, try to move forward,” he added.

Well, it seems like Ben Affleck’s dynamic with both the Jennifers is simple yet complicated.
