- Jennifer Lopez loves the attention she is getting from Ben Affleck
- Affleck and Lopez didn’t get along at the end of their relationship years ago
- The two are having fun together and they care about each other at present
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are having fun after they reunited, a report says.
Multiple outlets reported that he has been visiting the “On the Floor” singer at her home following her split from Alex Rodriguez. They were also photographed during a Montana getaway. According to an insider, things are good between the pair and they are enjoying each other’s company.
“Jen is loving the attention she has been getting from Ben,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Jen and Ben didn’t get along at the end of their relationship years ago. But once their hurt feelings subsided, they were friendly for many years.”
“Now that they’ve fully reconnected, they are having fun together and care about each other a great deal,” the source added.
Lopez and Affleck dated in the 2000s and were popularly known as Bennifer. They got engaged in 2003 but called off their wedding just days before they were set to walk down the aisle. The two announced their split in 2004.
“We were about to get married and it didn’t work out,” Lopez previously told ET. “And it was just a bad heartbreak. You know, one of those break ups that really, it was a tough one for me for whatever reason. For many reasons.”
Affleck was the first one to reach out to Lopez. TMZ’s source said he sent her love letters via emails in February when she was filming “Shotgun Wedding” in the Dominican Republic. At the time, Lopez was still engaged to the former baseball player.
However, another source told People that “Ben reached out to Jennifer as a friend.” He made the move when he heard that Lopez and Rodriguez were working on some issues in their relationship.
“He was basically checking up on her,” the insider continued. “He was single and thought she might be single, too.”
Meanwhile, another source told ET earlier this month that the “Batman” star “has always had an affinity for Jennifer and was the one who initially started pursuing her and making an effort to reconnect romantically speaking.”
“He wanted to explore things with her beyond a friendship and they’ve both really been enjoying spending time together,” the source said.
A different insider also said Lopez “has feelings for” Affleck but is not rushing things because she’s focused on her children. However, “things are moving in a romantic direction” for the pair.
