Is Ben Affleck trying to win back Jennifer Lopez?
According to a new report by Life & Style, Ben Affleck is allegedly looking to reconcile with Jennifer Lopez following his split from Jennifer Garner and has even been “reaching out” to Lopez in the wake of his marriage breakdown.
“Ben’s focus right now is really on JLo,” an insider allegedly told Life & Style of Affleck’s plans to get back together with Lopez, who broke off their engagement in 2003, adding that he “thinks they’re better suited for each other now than they were before.”
“He wants her back,” the insider candidly added of Ben’s plans to win back Lopez, alleging that Affleck has even been sending Jennifer “affectionate texts” in the hopes of a reconciliation.
“Ben’s been thinking a lot about what might have been if the original Bennifer had worked out,” Life & Style’s insider recently claimed of the former couple, noting that Ben had “never really gotten over” his early 2000s romance with Jennifer that was constantly in the headlines.
“He doesn’t regret marrying Jennifer Garner and having three beautiful children, of course, but he does wonder what his life with Jennifer Lopez would have been like,” the source continued, adding that “that’s why [Ben is] reaching out to her now.”
But unfortunately for fans of Jennifer and Ben (aka Bennifer), Gossip Cop is busting Life & Style’s romance report and claiming that rumors Affleck is looking to reconcile with Lopez are simply “not true.”
But while Gossip Cop is denying new reports that Ben and Jennifer could possibly reignite their early 2000s romance, Lopez has recently been speaking out about her former flame and getting candid about how she feels about his newest tattoo.
Lopez was recently quizzed about Ben’s huge new phoenix back tattoo during a recent appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live! late last month, where host Andy Cohen quizzed Lopez on how she feels about Affleck’s huge new inking.
“It’s awful!” Jennifer candidly told Cohen of how she feels about Ben’s huge tattoo, which appears to cover his entire back.
“I mean, I would tell him that, I would tell him, ‘What are you doing!?’” Jennifer joked, adding that Affleck’s ink “has too many colors.”
“His tattoos always have too many colors,” Lopez continued, “They shouldn’t be so colorful… they should be, like, cooler… You know what I mean?”
But this isn’t the first time Jennifer has opened up about Ben Affleck on the late-night Bravo talk show. Jennifer previously spoke out about Ben during a 2014 appearance on the series, where she revealed that she was the one responsible for Affleck’s movie-star looks.
“I did kind of like, say, ‘You’re a movie star, you should wear a suit! You should do this with your hair!’” Jennifer told host Andy Cohen on the show in 2014.
“For sure. I mean, I do that” Lopez revealed, admitting that her former fiancé was “into” the advice she gave him about fashion and how to dress.
“By the way, guys do that to girls, too: ‘I like that dress better than the other dress,’” Jennifer continued during a previous appearance on the show, “He didn’t do anything he didn’t want to do… He had some good fashion moments when he was with me!”
