Yes, you heard it right! Ben & Jennifer( Bennifer ) are back. It’s a love story that took 19 years in the making! They are enjoying the spotlight since April 2021 but recent clicks of them kissing each other on J.Lo’s 52nd birthday have taken the internet by storm. They seem to be more in love with each other than in the previous times. Bennifer has been in engagement before in 2002 but postponed the wedding due to excessive media attention. Ultimately, they called it off leaving the fans heartbroken.
The relationship seems complicated. But what is not so in our lives? Their romance started in the sets of the movie ‘Gigli’ back in 2002. Soon in 2004, they parted ways. Jennifer stated,
“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date. When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could compromise. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families, and our friends.”
Lopez then married her former boyfriend Marc Anthony in the same year. Affleck started dating Jennifer Garner, whom he eventually married in 2005 and had a married life of 10 years. He is a father to three lovely children. J.Lo and Marc announced their separation in the year 2011 which was legally finalized in 2014. For personal differences, Garner and Affleck had announced their decision to part ways in 2015. In 2017, Jennifer started dating Alex Rodriguez only to split early this year as the couple jointly announced “we have realized that we are better as friends”.
What A-Rod has to say?
Though nothing concrete statement by Rodriguez, close sources have confirmed that it is quite shocking that Lopez has moved on. He thought that they would be able to clear out the differences between them and will again reconnect. Alex has tried to reach out to J.Lo several times but she made herself available for him only for a short time. They announced their split in March 2021. But reports suggest that Ben and Jennifer have been in contact with each other through emails since February. Another inside source was found to state that Alex was jealous about the reunite. Hoping against all odds for a reconcilement.
They are behaving just like normal couples do – having date nights, driving around and hanging out at each other’s houses, taking out their kids for the visit to the Universal Studios. Jennifer “is open to having a relationship”. All she wants is to spend some time with Affleck and wait to see what comes off from the relationship this time.
A source close to Bennifer has said, “Friends wouldn’t surprise if they move in together and ultimately end up together”. The couple hasn’t given a formal declaration about their relationship to the press though but their recent pictures speak more than the words. Both of them have been in and out of relationships but all that matters now for them is to be happy.
