Jennifer Lopez is NOT trying to get back together with Ben Affleck in the wake of his split from Jennifer Garner, despite a tabloid story that claims “sparks are flying” between the exes. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the report. A rep for Lopez tells us the allegations are 100 percent wrong.

According to the National Enquirer, Lopez is “ready to trade in her boy toy for a Batman but she’s determined to wait” until Affleck and Garner have settled their divorce. A so-called “insider” for the supermarket tabloid describes Lopez as “waiting in the wings,” because “the last thing J.Lo wants is to be branded a marriage wrecker.”

Still, the Enquirer source says Lopez “has already been there” for Affleck through his marital woes, and claims, “He’s been pouring his heart to her. The spark’s definitely still there!” The supposed “insider” further alleges, “She’d leap at the chance to marry Ben and have kids together. She’s always regretted that they never went through with it the first time.”

But while there were plenty of “Bennifer” jokes about the formerly-engaged couple after news of Affleck’s impending divorce broke, it’s absolutely false that Lopez is planning for a future with him. We’re told the Enquirer story couldn’t be further from reality. And Lopez’s rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the report is “not true.”
