Ben Affleck’s Split With Jennifer Garner Opens Door For Jennifer Lopez?
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are calling it quits on their ten year marriage and while they didn’t give a reason it hasn’t stopped insiders from crawling out of the woodwork claiming they know why. Depending on who you believe, either Ben’s drinking and gambling was too much for Jen to take or they grew apart while he was busy building a career and she was home with their three kids. It’s possible that the truth is somewhere in the middle.
One persistent rumor that has been popping up has to do with Jennifer Lopez. Before you go calling her a home wrecker though, she’s not being blamed for the split, though there are some insiders who believe it is just a matter of time before we see Bennifer the sequel, and I mean the original Bennifer.
There have been reports that the former lovebirds have kept in touch, something that upset Ben’s wife. Someone claiming to be on the inside told the UK’s Sun, “Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it’s inevitable they will get together again at some point.”
This supposed insider mentioned this year’s Oscar’s saying, “They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch over email. Jennifer Garner never liked it.”
Having dated Gwyneth Paltrow following her break-up with Brad Pitt, Ben should understand what it’s like when your partner has a hot ex, but it didn’t stop him from leaning over and whispering something in JLo’s ear at the Oscars. She playfully swatted him. The AP reported about the incident which happened over a commercial break.
Of course, there are blind gossip rumors saying the original Bennifer, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, have already been seeing each other and have been sneaking around for months. There is no proof and it could just be wishful thinking on the writer’s part.
JLo has had her own romantic ups and downs. After her marriage to Marc Anthony ended, she began dating back-up dancer Casper Smart. The two had broken up, with her saying she had trouble being alone before the thrice married singer and Smart started popping up together again.
Ben married Jennifer Garner shortly after he and Jennifer Lopez ended their engagement. Now that he and Garner are divorcing will he find comfort in the arms of his former fiancee? Will Jenny from the block give Casper Smart the old heave ho? Out of all of the rumors surfacing does this one have the strongest legs?
They survived Gigli and other relationships. Are they heading back to each other after all these years? Is a Bennifer sequel in the works? Let us know what you think here at Have U Heard.
