Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez NOT Reuniting, Despite Report
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are NOT planning a “secret reunion,” despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s false.
According to Life & Style, the ex-couple recently reconnected by phone and text after calling off their engagement more than a decade ago. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “J. Lo asked if Ben wanted to come see her perform at her Las Vegas residency, and he said that he’d love to. Ben says there’s definitely a spark, and she’s as sharp and fun as he remembered. He’s excited about the prospect of a chapter two with J. Lo!”
The outlet’s dubious insider further claims the actor’s estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, has kicked him out of their home and started dating again, but will be upset if Affleck gets back together with Lopez because she’s “always been jealous of the love Ben had with J. Lo.” The seemingly phony source adds, “Ben says J. Lo is just about the perfect woman – fun, sexy, and smart – and he’s looking forward to getting to know her again.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Affleck and Lopez didn’t recently reconnect, nor have they made plans to meet up. The claim otherwise is simply fabricated. Unfortunately, we’re not surprised by the tabloid’s inaccurate report.
Gossip Cop busted Life & Style six months ago when it first wrongly reported on its cover that Affleck and Lopez were “back together.” We also called out the publication for its false claim about Garner being jealous of Lopez. There was no truth to either of those stories, and the same goes for this latest one. Additionally, Gossip Cop is told by a source close to Lopez that she recently began dating former New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
