The Air star also kept it casual in a black T-shirt, beige khakis, and a blue puffer jacket with a backpack hanging on one shoulder, per Harpers Bazaar. Their reunions and happy exchanges are often presumed to be speculations of a "love affair." However, none of the exes addressed these rumors.
A source revealed that Jennifer Lopez is the reason behind the beautiful relationship between the exes. The insider revealed. "Ben is healthy. The drama of the past and the emotions of divorce are long gone, and they are all making it work." Although their public divorce was heavily scrutinized, the ex-flames have buried their hatchet.
And it's worth noting that JLo has been instrumental in normalizing things between the exes. The songstress is also a mother of two twin boys with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Together, they have a beautiful blended family, which the Mother actress is utterly proud of despite the hardships of not being on the same page every time.
