Jennifer Lopez was recently photographed with her ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck, but the two are only said to be friends.
Despite their latest reunion following Lopez’s split from Alex Rodriguez, TMZ notes that the former pair are “strictly friends.”
Although a potential reconciliation is possible, for the time being, Affleck, 48, and Lopez, 51, are keeping things platonic.
Still, there are indications that the two actors might soon reunite, as Affleck has been seen heading to J.Lo’s California home during the day, according to reports, after being picked up in a white Escalade SUV that reportedly belongs to Lopez and driven to her nearby mansion.
“Security picks him up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house,” a source told Celebrity News HQ, despite the fact that the two have not been seen together.
In 2002, Affleck and Lopez got engaged, and the media called them “Bennifer.” However, in 2003, they decided to postpone their wedding.
They broke up a few months later, in January of 2004. Lopez has described the end of her relationship with Affleck as “possibly my first major heartbreak.”
J. Lo has a fantastic friendship with some of her ex-boyfriends, including Ben Affleck, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Marc Anthony, the father of her two daughters. She was also spotted having dinner with A-Rod shortly after their breakup was confirmed.
A source said of the post-split get-together, “There always seemed to be love and appreciation there.”
