Jennifer Lopez hung out with Ben Affleck this week, set the Internet on fire with proclamations they are together again. Not like that and we have an explanation.
True … they spent time together, but we’re told they’re strict friends. The fact is that they have been friends for a long time after their difficult breakdown. There is no such thing as “never”, especially in Hollywood, so it is always possible that something could be re-ignited, but there is no evidence of that now.
J Lo seems to have an MO in conditions that have gone south – keep it kind. She has also spent time with both ex-fiancés Alex Rodriguez and ex-husband Marc Anthony since her breakup with A-Rod. Maybe part of it is getting comfort from those she knows, but whatever it is, she does not lose people like hot potatoes when the romantic thing does not work.
Marc Anthony is a special case as they share 2 children. Again, it was a hard breakdown, but eventually things were repaired so they could have a civil relationship and co-parent.
What’s more, J Lo has maintained business relationships with some of her exes … especially Marc Anthony and A-Rod.
As you know, J Lo and A-Rod called it quits after 4 years of dating and get engaged in March 2019. They avoided a bullet … if it were not for the pandemic, they would probably have gotten married.
As far as we can see, J Lo does not jump into any relationship in the short term.
