“They say if two people are meant to be, they will find their way to each other. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are living proof of that. After over a decade apart, the couple rekindled their love and are now happily together. However, the road to their current happiness was not always smooth.
Lopez met Affleck on the sets of their movie ‘Gigli’ while still married to her second husband, Cris Judd. Reports suggest that JLo and Ben started dating in 2002, and after her divorce from Cris in 2003, they went public with their relationship. In 2003, they were even engaged, but their wedding plans faced challenges due to excessive media attention. The couple decided to postpone and eventually called off the engagement in January 2004.
Jennifer Lopez went on to marry Marc Anthony six months later, while Ben Affleck tied the knot with Jennifer Garner. Fast forward to 2021, and rumors surfaced that JLo and Affleck had reignited their romance. In July 2022, the couple surprised everyone by tying the knot in Las Vegas.
Reflecting on the past, JLo confessed to the pain she felt after the breakup with Affleck. In an interview with Apple Music, she shared, ‘It was so painful after we broke up. Once we called off that wedding 20 years ago, it was the biggest heartbreak of my life. I honestly felt like I was going to die.’
Despite the challenging times, Lopez emphasized that their story now has a happy ending, which she described as ‘the most ‘would never happen in Hollywood’ ending.’ On the work front, Jennifer Lopez’s ninth studio album, ‘This Is Me… Now,’ is set to release on February 16, 2024.”
