Is Jennifer Lopez dating Ben Affleck?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were the 'it' couple of 2004. But after their split, both the actors moved on in their lives and date other people. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are reportedly back together, giving fans a chance to relieve their Bennifer days. The A-list actors dated and were engaged back in 2003. republicworld.comBen Affleck and Jennifer Lopez dated THESE celebs after their split 17 years ago

Why did Ben and Jen break up?

During an appearance on The Jess Cagle Interview in 2016, the pop star explained that the end of their relationship was largely due to the pressure put on it by the tabloids. She said, “I think different time, different thing, who knows what could've happened, but there was a genuine love there.” Vanity FairJennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Reportedly Vacationed Together in Montana and “The Chemistry Was Unreal”

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Ben and J Lo were in very regular contact by email starting in early February when she flew to the Caribbean to begin filming "Shotgun Wedding." We're told the tone of the emails wasn't just friendly ... but more loving and longing for Jen.

Our sources say the emails also referenced J Lo's love for Ben's writing, and included a line about him being able to "own her heart" with his pen.

We're told they continued emailing each other, back and forth, for the duration of J Lo's shoot ... which wrapped in late April.

As far as our sources know, there was no physical contact or rendezvous between them during this time, but the emails do add context to how they seemingly got together so quickly.

Folks in Ben and Jennifer's world said they had always maintained a friendship since splitting up in 2004. However, as we first told you, they were together again in Montana this past weekend.

One more clue the exes have been in close contact for some time came with InStyle Magazine's recent J Lo cover story. It included a quote from Ben gushing about his ex-fiancee, saying in part ... "She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves."

While it looked like Bennifer II went from 0 to 100 in record time, the emails show they were doing at least 55 by the time they started hanging out again.

In the final seconds of the video, they shared a side hug. 

The beauty's celebration came months after she split from Ben Affleck, 48, in January after almost a year of dating. 

The pair first met on the set of their soon-to-be released erotic thriller Deep Water, which began filming in New Orleans in November 2019.

They seemed to be inseparable as they spent much of the pandemic together last year, taking daily walks with Ana's dog and grabbing coffee.

'The quarantine was unique because they had downtime and ­really got to know each other spending time at home,' a source told Page Six at the time.  

But it seems that once work picked up again, things changed in their relationship.

'Ana decided she doesn't want to live in LA and Ben wants to be close to his family,' they added of Ben's three children with ex Jennifer Garner. 'His priority is to be rooted in LA. They are in different places [in their lives].'

Now, Affleck is sparking romance rumors with his ex-fiancé, who he whisked away on a private jet this past weekend for a romantic getaway trip to a luxury ski resort in Montana, where the actor is understood to own a chalet. 

The former celebrity couple – who were engaged in 2002 but postponed their 2003 wedding and officially split in 2004 – have been seen reuniting with one another following JLo's split with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, and the revelation that Ben has been an active user on the celebrity dating app Raya. 

Talking about their getaway, a source told PEOPLE on Monday: '[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.'

Moving on: 'The quarantine was unique because they had downtime and ­really got to know each other spending time at home,' a source told Page Six at the time 

Things certainly seemed to have gone well between the former couple as another source added for People later that day: 'She had a great time with Ben. She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.'

Known as 'Bennifer' at the time of their romance, recent reports have suggested that the pair are now 'just friends,' though it certainly appears that they have grown much closer over the past few weeks.

Last month, Ben was seen arriving at Jennifer's home in a white Escalade SUV that is said to belong to the Hustlers star. He was later seen being dropped off by the singer's security.
