Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
We bet you’ve already heard whispers of the latest tea in Hollywood – Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have decided to give their romance another shot, only 17 years later. Both Jenny and Ben have had their fair share of marriages, divorces, and scandals, both before and after their engagement. It seems like Selena Gomez wasn’t kidding when she said “the heart wants what it wants”.

Taking a Look Back
Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to romantic adventures. The singer had been married to Ojani Noa from 1997 t0 1998, then Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003, followed by Marc Anthony who she married in 2004 and left in 2014. Things started to look up for Jennifer when she started dating A-Rod aka Alex Rodriguez. They were together since 2017 but unfortunately, the couple called their engagement off in April of 2021. The same month, news broke out that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were dating again.
Ben Affleck, on the other hand, had a more relatively stable dating life compared to J-Lo as he went on to marry actress Jennifer Garner in 2005 but, that relationship soon bit the dust, too (and not in a good way). The couple announced their separation in 2015 and finalized the divorce in 2018. Affleck went on to call this (the divorce) “the biggest regret of his life”. The media didn’t take it easy on the ex-batman as it was also rumored that the divorce resulted from Affleck’s alleged affair with their children’s nanny Christine Ouzounian in 2017.

2021 Can’t Get Crazier
Just like low-rise jeans are coming back into fashion, we are probably witnessing the revival of Bennifer. Media outlets went crazy after hearing the news about the two stars and their rekindling romance. Since then, all eyes (and cameras) have been directed towards the couple. The public got their first glimpse of the budding romance when word was told of Affleck visiting the Lopez residence in LA. Since then, Twitter has not hushed for a minute about Bennifer. Could it be the unease or excitement, we guess we’ll never know.
Bennifer in the Hamptons
Recently, the couple was pictured again taking a casual walk in the Hamptons. Both of them were in casual attire and seemed to be enjoying each other’s company. They were seen with another unidentified couple and then headed off to get some shopping done.
