Bennifer back? Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck recently ‘spent several days’ together
The two celebrities were spotted near a resort in Montana, where they reportedly stayed for a week.
Is Bennifer officially a thing again? It does seem like a possibility, with former celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck spending quality time with each other – including a long trip to Montana where they “spent several days together”, according to People.
The couple – who jointly entered the pop culture lexicon as “Bennifer” in the early 2000s – were recently sighted near a resort in Big Sky, where Affleck has a home. The photos were recently published in The Daily Mail.
It would seem the two celebrities had come separately to the taping of the recent Vax Live concert in Los Angeles on May 2 (where Lopez performed) before heading off to Montana for a week. “They were alone, just the two of them,” a source told E! News.
People’s source added: "(Jennifer) spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.”
Lopez, 51, and Affleck, 48, were together from 2002 to 2004, a whirlwind romance that included a wedding that was called off, a couple of movies together (Gigli, Jersey Girl) and a music video (Jenny From The Block).
They eventually went separate ways with respective relationships. Affleck married Jennifer Gardner, with whom he had three kids and divorced in 2018. Meanwhile, Lopez married singer Marc Anthony, with whom she had twins. After they divorced in 2014, she dated her former backup dancer Casper Smart and, most recently, was engaged to baseball player Alex Rodriguez until April.
But apparently, through it all, Bennifer kept in touch. Another source told E! News: "They have been in touch here and there throughout the years. Ben reached out to her to see how she was doing and they had dinner together a few times within this last month. It's natural between them and the chemistry is unreal. They picked up where they last left off and are enjoying each other's company right now."
