Whereas “Bennifer” hasn’t confirmed that they are on once more, they did take a solo journey to Montana final week, with photos to show it, and a supply instructed People journal, “She had a good time with Ben. She is proud of him and enjoys spending time with him.” Simply previous to their Huge Sky rendezvous, Affleck had been photographed coming and going from Lopez’s L.A. residence, being chauffeured in Lopez’s SUV.
Even Affleck’s BFF Matt Damon is keen on this reunion — 17 years after the Gigli and Jersey Woman co-stars known as off their marriage ceremony and broke up — saying it “could be superior.” Nevertheless, Rodriguez is outwardly much less thrilled.
A supply near Lopez instructed E! News, “A-Rod is shocked that J.Lo has moved on,” having introduced on April 15 that they ended their engagement. “He really thought they might have the ability to make it work and reconnect. He has been reaching out to J.Lo attempting to fulfill along with her and he or she has been very brief with him.”
The supply claimed the previous New York Yankee is “saddened” that Lopez reunited with Affleck, and claims her contacted her to let her know, noting, “He is upset.”
Nevertheless, the supply added, “She’s not eager about rekindling something with A-Rod and is completed.”
A rep for Rodriguez didn’t instantly reply to Yahoo Leisure’s request for remark in regards to the report.
Whereas Lopez not being eager about rekindling something with Rodriguez sounds very ultimate, let’s not neglect that issues appeared ultimate when Affleck and Lopez cut up in January 2004. The very high-profile couple began courting in 2002 whereas making Gigli — and the media was obsessive about their each transfer. In 2003, that “extreme media consideration” led them to name off their marriage ceremony, and so they formally broke up just a few months later. She returned the $2.5 million, 6.1-carat pink diamond Harry Winston engagement ring he gave her, ABC News reported on the time, in addition to the $400,000 Phantom Rolls Royce he gifted her for her thirty third birthday.
She rebounded with Marc Anthony, happening to have their 13-year-old twins, Emme and Max collectively. He discovered love with Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares Violet, 15; Seraphina, 12; and Samuel, 9.
There was huge buzz when Lopez and Rodriguez first attached in 2018 — and so they turned engaged the following yr, with a ring that rivaled the Bennifer diamond. However their marriage ceremony, set to happen final yr, was postponed twice — and Lopez spoke publicly about being uncertain whether or not they wanted to make it authorized in December.
That appeared like an indication, however a good larger one was Southern Attraction actuality star Madison LeCroy claiming Rodriguez has slipped into her DMs. He denied it, however the pair appeared to hit the skids, regardless of Rodriguez making a last-minute journey to the Dominican Republic, the place she was filming Shotgun Wedding ceremony, to work issues out.
Rodriguez has been targeted on his well being and his greatest since his cut up from Lopez, shedding what he known as his “dad-bod.” And he appeared on good phrases together with his Lopez, dining with her after the split, so we are able to see the place he’d stay hopeful of a reunion.
His romance with Lopez definitely helped enhance his picture. Close to the top of his MLB profession, Rodriguez had admitted to utilizing performance-enhancing drugs. Previous to that, he had an particularly nasty divorce from his spouse, Cynthia Scurtis, who accused him of dishonest. On the time, Madonna publicly denied being the “different girl,” as they’d been photographed out collectively.
Rodriguez, who additionally dated Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz, noticed his reputation rebound after that, however getting along with Lopez bolstered it additional. They appeared comfortable collectively, sharing lovely images of their blended household (he is a dad of two from his marriage with Cynthia) and he was the perfect Instagram boyfriend to Lopez. And their relationship was profitable. Whereas buying the New York Mets did not work out, they made some huge cash as a bundle deal in partnerships with numerous corporations, pitching wellness products to coffee as a facet hustle. (In truth, in late March — two weeks earlier than confirming their cut up — they introduced they’d be selling a vitamin line collectively.)
If Lopez and Affleck actually are going to reboot Bennifer and embark on a romance 17 years later, it is going to be attention-grabbing to see in the event that they’d achieve this in such a public method, contemplating how a lot they disliked the eye the primary time round. And the way a lot flak they’ve gotten, for practically twenty years, over Gigli.
