Jennifer Lopez’s breakup from Alex Rodriguez was a major announcement back in April 2021. They told the world they were no longer a couple in a joint statement that read, “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.”
It continued, “Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.” The statement they released sounds sincere and all, but the whole world knows there has to be more to the story.
The two appeared to be such a power couple, so reports of their split actually came as quite a shock. Not too long after, Lopez was spotted hanging out & about with her ex-boyfriend, Ben Affleck. Affleck & Lopez first met each other in 2001 on the set of the movie Gigli. Now, almost two decades later, they’re spending time together again as if no time passed by at all.
Ben Affleck’s wives
Ben Affleck is a very handsome actor, so the dating pool is usually open for him with plenty of women lining up to get his attention. With movies like Triple Frontier, The Accountant, Gone Girl, and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice under his belt, it’s hard to deny the huge place in Hollywood he’s carved out for himself. Ben Affleck’s wives have obviously paid a lot of attention to his high-profile career.
Ben Affleck’s wives list of the past only consists of one lovely woman – Jennifer Garner. He married Garner in 2005, and they stayed together until 2018. Together, they share three children. Some of the other women Affleck’s been linked to include Gywneth Paltrow, Lindsay Shookus, Shauna Sexton, and Ana de Armas.
Could it be that nothing ever worked out for Ben Affleck‘s wives of the past so that he would be able to have this current reconciliation with Lopez?
Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez’s relationship today
Ben Affleck‘s wives of the past clearly don’t bother Jennifer Lopez in the slightest. In fact, she herself has been married three times before to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd, and Mark Anthony. She was engaged to marry Alex Rodriguez which would’ve been her fourth trip down the aisle. Is it possible that her fourth trip down the aisle will be with Affleck instead?
The couple is now Instagram official which goes beyond those unplanned for paparazzi shots that get published in random magazines. Every time they’re spotted together, they seem to be having an absolute blast. Just recently, Lopez & Affleck were spotted getting cozy at a birthday party hosted by none other than Leah Remini. Now that they’ve reconciled, maybe things will work out better for them this time around.
According to E!, a source close to Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez said, “[They] are fully committed to each other. [They are] not needing to get married again.”
The source also added, “They have been meshing their lives and families and don’t feel the need to get engaged yet or even tie the knot. They have both been there and don’t feel it’s necessary. They are both very secure within their relationship, and Ben worships her. It’s truly meant to be and everyone around them thinks they are a perfect match.”
If Affleck & Lopez are headed down the aisle sometime soon, they’ll likely have an extremely extravagant & beautiful wedding. They might also opt towards something small & intimate since they’ve both been married in the past. Either way, the general public is happy to see them back together since they seem to be so much happier this time around.
