In case you somehow missed it, we accidentally time traveled back to 2002—a magical and questionable time when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were dating. These two were together just long enough to make the world’s least critically acclaimed movie together, and then tragically parted ways. But now? Now they’re hanging out again in the wake of Jennifer’s recent breakup with Alex Rodriguez, and inquiring minds want to know how Jennifer Garner feels about the whole thing. Answer: unbothered.
A source tells Entertainment Tonight that “Jen isn’t bothered by Ben hanging out with J.Lo or anyone else. She wants what is best for Ben.”
“What matters most to her is Ben being a great dad,” the source continues. “They’ve been in a good groove when it comes to co-parenting for a while and their kids’ happiness is Jen’s main priority.”
Either way, another source tells Entertainment Tonight that J.Lo and Ben are merely friends, and that their recent get together isn’t even the first time they’ve hung out—paparazzi just happened to be there this time. “Jen and Ben have remained friends over the years and the two are still just that – friends,” the source said, while another added “They obviously have a romantic history, but at this point they only have a friendship. They both admire each other professionally, respect one another and feel comfortable with each other.”
As a reminder on the timeline of it all, Jennifer Lopez and Ben were engaged from 2002 to 2004, and Jennifer Garner and Ben were married from 2005 to 2018 (though they separated earlier than that, in 2015). Anyway, now seems like a good time to re-watch this masterpiece:
