According to the magazine’s report, Jennifer Lopez’s “inner circle is urging the newly single star to get back together with Ben Affleck… They think it would benefit her career and bring her back to her glory days when her movies and albums were No. 1.”
“Her camp wants her to be part of a superstar couple again,” the tipster continued.
“[Jennifer Lopez] isn’t against the idea,” as she “still speaks to [Ben Affleck] and has always had a soft spot for him. She’s always believed maybe they’d reconnect one day. Anything can happen!” the source added.

Although the magazine claimed Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were headed for a reunion, a source spoke to Gossip Cop after the story was shared and labeled the report “stupid” and “ridiculous.”
In other Ben Affleck news, the actor’s wife, Jennifer Garner, is said to be expecting a baby with Affleck — despite having called off the relationship in June after 10 years of marriage.
“Jen is telling her inner circle she’s having a baby, and that she’s happy about it but being cautious with [Ben Affleck],” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine last month, according to a report by Gossip Cop. Meanwhile, Affleck is “hoping another child will bring them back together as a family.”
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got married in 2005 and share three children together, Violet, 10; Seraphina, 7; and Samuel, 4.
In a joint statement at the end of June 2015, Ben Affleck and his wife announced they were calling it quits. At the time, a source spoke to E! News about the former couple’s relationship and confirmed they had actually spent the previous 10 months apart as part of a trial separation.
Despite the announcement of their plans for divorce, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have continued to be targeted with rumors of a possible reunion for the past several months and due to their regular outings as a family, the rumors will likely continue.
As for Garner’s alleged pregnancy, the In Touch Weekly source went on to claim that the former couple conceived their child earlier this year in Europe.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner “conceived the baby while he was working on Justice League in London,” the source alleged. “He and Jen had begun spending more time together romantically and Jen realized there was still a lot of love between the two of them.”
“He’s over the moon that Jen is pregnant again because in the past, they’ve been the closest after the birth of their children,” the source continued. “Ben wants Jen to commit to putting the relationship back on track and to call off the divorce — it’s important to him that their children be raised in a family with two loving parents who aren’t divorced.”
In response to the In Touch Weekly report, a rep for Garner spoke to Gossip Cop and confirmed she is not expecting.
