Bennifer may be making a comeback — however, it is not Jennifer Garner the other part of the equation.
Ben Affleck has allegedly been in contact with his ex-fiancée Jennifer Lopez, according to the New York Daily News and other reports.
A source for the UK’s Sun told the Daily News, “Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it’s inevitable they will get together again at some point. They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch over e-mail. Jennifer Garner never liked it.”
The Associated Press reported at this year’s Academy Awards that Affleck went up to Lopez during a commercial break and “whispered something” in her ear causing her to “playfully” hit his arm.
The ex-lovers seem to be on friendly terms, even though Lopez did describe her break up with Affleck in her memoir “True Love” last year as being her “first real heartbreak.”
However, admirers of the original “Bennifer” should not hold their breath for a “Gigli” sequel. Lopez, 45, was seen being intimate with her off-again boyfriend Casper Smart in New York City within the first 24 hours of Affleck and Garner releasing their official divorce announcement.
The "Gone Girl" actor missed Garner’s birthday in April to spend some time alone in Canada and ended up skipping Mother’s Day to go on a trip with his brother Casey, The Sun reported.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the parents of 3 announced in a joint statement just one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
“We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time.”
