Earlier this year we all were more than ecstatic when the rumors about a romance between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck surfaced. After all, not every day we learn that an iconic couple from the past rekindle their love two decades later.
The rumors started when the American actor was spotted heading into her home and later the news broke about them vacationing together. The couple took their time to officially announced. It only took a lot of partying here and there, some family reunions, and even a Disneyland visit to accept that they were together...together.
Finally, months later they went Insta official on her birthday with a sweet kiss pic, and to say that the internet went crazy would be an understatement. However, we could say that since then, them together is no longer a shock.
More recently we saw them at the MET Gala looking ravishing and sharing all the love on the red carpet BUT )and here is the big but) it looks like we will not be seeing them as frequently as we were being used to.
Are they breaking up? Was the affair a summer thing? Not precisely, but we would not say it is not a bit problematic. Let's take into consideration that both stars are known for being hardworking, whether they are in a romance or not. Both are a non-stopping force and apparently, because of this, they have to separate.
Ben Affleck is set to star in the upcoming film 'Hypnotic' directed by Robert Rodriguez and according to Deadline, the actor will be heading to Texas to start filming. (In case you are wondering, the movie will follow a detective (Affleck) who becomes entangled in a mystery involving his missing daughter (Hala Finley) and a secret government program.
On the other hand, Jennifer Lopez will star and produce the upcoming Netflix film 'The Mother.' (Lopez will play a deadly female assassin who comes out of hiding to protect the daughter that she gave up years before, while on the run from dangerous men.)
So, long story short, relax. They are still together but will not be together (does that make sense?) According to People, a source has revealed that both Ben and Jen are focusing on their work but are glad that they are together again. "They are very grateful for their fun summer," the source says. "It's all about work for the next few months. Ben will head to Texas next week. Jennifer starts filming in Canada in October." another source added that "They are living in the moment and enjoying each other's company," the source said. "They really enjoy each other. They are like two kids in love!" And even another added that they really want the romance to work out this second time. "They are a great team," the Lopez source said. "They are figuring out their future together."
