Jennifer Lopez Goes Instagram Official With Her Relationship With Ben Affleck

When Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez split up, Lopez wasted no time catching up with her ex, Ben Affleck. He was spotted traveling to visit her at her home, and friends of the pair insisted they were just friends.

The “just friends” story looked weaker and weaker as the pair were spotted out and about more often. It started with a trip together. Then they moved on to looking like a real couple at the beginning of July.

Last week, Lopez refused to talk about Affleck at all when interviewed by TODAY’s Hoda Kotb. Technically Lopez still isn’t talking about her relationship, but she has posted a picture that makes their status 100% Instagram Official.

Lopez posted a series of photos on Instagram in celebration of her 52th birthday. In the first few photos, the only person in the picture is Lopez looking stunning in a bikini. Keep scrolling. The last photo is worth it.

Her followers are loving how she announced the news. One person wrote, “I mean, if you’re going to Instagram official do it like @jlo.”

Watch the video below for more about the relationship between Lopez and Affleck.


Lopez and Affleck first started dating in 2002 after they met on the set of the movie “Gigli.” She filed for divorce from her second husband, Chris Judd, that June, and by November, Affleck had proposed.

The couple was planning to get married in 2003, and Lopez even planned to change her last name to Affleck after the wedding. However, the wedding never happened. Lopez decided to cancel the wedding just days before it was set to take place. She claimed she wanted to cancel the wedding because there was too much media attention.

In January 2004, the couple broke up. Lopez moved on to marry Marc Anthony, and Affleck married Jennifer Garner. Both weddings took place in 2004.

It looks like Lopez and Affleck have picked up where they left off. Can we start calling them Bennifer again? Do you think they’ll end up getting married?
