Following Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s announcement of their split after ten years of marriage (read here), reports claimed days later that Ben has been in contact with his ex, Jennifer Lopez.
“Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it’s inevitable they will get together again at some point,” a source told the UK’s Sun.
“They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch over email. Jennifer Garner never liked it.”
The former Hollywood couple made headlines at this year’s Academy Awards when they were reportedly spotted chatting during a commercial break in the broadcast.
Affleck approached his ex-fiancée and “whispered something” in her ear before she “playfully” swatted his arm, the AP reported at the time.
While the two seemed to be on friendly terms then, the songstress described her 2003 break up with Affleck as her “first real heartbreak” in her 2014 memoir “True Love.”
Despite the rumors, fans likely shouldn’t expect a “Gigli” sequel anytime soon as Lopez, 45, was just seen cozying up to her on and off boyfriend Casper Smart in New York City just 24 hours after Affleck and Garner’s divorce announcement.
Do you see Jlo reconciling with Ben?
