While Jennifer Lopez was recently snapped hanging out with ex Ben Affleck, the pair are reportedly just friends.
TMZ reports that the former couple are “strictly friends,” despite their recent reunion following Lopez’s split from Alex Rodriguez. While a future reconciliation is certainly possible, Affleck, 48, and Lopez, 51, are keeping things platonic for the time being.
Still, several signs indicate that the two actors could soon reunite, as Affleck has been spotted multiple times going to J.Lo’s California home during the day, we hear, after having been picked up in a white Escalade SUV that allegedly belongs to Lopez and then taken to her nearby mansion.
While the pair have not been spotted together, a source told Page Six, “Security picks him up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house.”
Affleck and Lopez were engaged in 2002, and famously dubbed “Bennifer” by the media. But they postponed their wedding in 2003. They split months later in January 2004. Lopez has called the breakup with Affleck “probably my first big heartbreak.”
J. Lo has a great relationship with several exes, including Affleck, Sean “Diddy” Combs and the father of her two children, Marc Anthony. She was also seen having dinner with A-Rod shortly after confirming their breakup.
