Ben Affleck is not trying to win Jennifer Lopez back, despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Life & Style, Affleck has been “reaching out” to Lopez because he wants to be “a lot more… than just a good friend.” The tabloid quotes a so-called “insider” saying, “Ben’s focus right now is really on J. Lo.” The same seemingly fictitious “insider” adds, “He thinks they’re better suited for each other now than they were before. He wants her back.”

The magazine further alleges that while Affleck is going to counseling with his estranged wife Jennifer Garner, he’s “working even harder to win over J. Lo” by sending her “affectionate texts.” “Ben’s been thinking a lot about what might have been if the original Bennifer had worked out,” outrageously claims the outlet. “He’s never really gotten over J.Lo,” adds the tabloid’s ill-informed “insider.”

Not a single word of the tabloid’s story is to be trusted. Gossip Cop looked into the magazine’s report, and sources close to both Affeck and Lopez tell us Life & Style’s tale is “not true.” What makes the new claim even more absurd is that exactly one week ago, the same untrustworthy outlet claimed Affleck and Garner were “trying for baby No. 4.” That tale wasn’t remotely accurate nor is the current one about Affleck pursuing Lopez again.
