Ben Affleck is not trying to win Jennifer Lopez back from Alex Rodriguez, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We're told it's beyond "absurd."
According to In Touch, Affleck is doing everything he can to keep Lopez and Rodriguez "apart" because he wants "to win back his longtime love." A so-called "source" tells the publication Affleck "hates that Jennifer is dating Alex and is totally jealous" because she's "always been the love of Ben's life." The same alleged "insider" adds, "Ben's been reaching out to her in hopes that they can reconnect," and "trying to convince Jennifer that Alex is trouble" and is "using her just for the publicity."
Curiously, the magazine's Affleck source also supposedly knows that "deep down, Jennifer has never stopped loving Ben," and that "she's very confused right now." The purported "source" further claims that even though Lopez is "happy" with Rodriguez, "it doesn't help to have Ben in her ear giving her reasons to doubt [the former baseball player]." Additionally, the alleged "insider" tells the tabloid, "Every time J. Lo talks to Ben, she's reminded on how much chemistry they have. Plus, she loves that after all these years Ben wants her back and will do just about anything to grab her attention."
While very romantic and dramatic at the same time, the story is complete fiction. It's all made up. There is zero truth to it, and Gossip Cop seriously wonders whether In Touch decided to concoct this untrue tale on its own or was duped by a fake "insider" into publishing this ridiculous collection of lies.
A source close to Lopez assures Gossip Cop the outlet's story is simply a fabrication. Meanwhile, a mutual friend of ours and Affleck's sarcastically joked, "Ben cannot wait to get back with J. Lo," before adding, "So absurd!" Of course, the tabloid proved just a few weeks ago that it knows little about Affleck. Gossip Cop busted the magazine in April when it wrongly reported Affleck and Jennifer Garner were renewing their vows. Much like how that never materialized, none of what the publication is now claiming about Lopez, Affleck and Rodriguez is happening either.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
