Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were there before Marc Anthony, Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Garner, and Ana de Armas. It’s no secret that the two parted ways in 2004, but they’ve since resurrected one of Hollywood’s favorite romances, making multiple red-carpet appearances together.
Between February 2017 and early 2021, she dated New York Yankees baseball player Alex Rodriguez after her divorce from Marc Anthony in 2014. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple postponed their wedding twice after getting engaged in March 2019. After tabloid speculation about their relationship surfaced in March 2021, they released a statement saying they were “working through some things” before ending their relationship in April 2021.
However, there were some rumors that she forced Alex Rodriguez to break up over trust issues to save her reputation.
Why Jennifer Lopez Wanted Alex Rodriguez To Split With Her
Alex Rodriguez’s efforts to repair their relationship issues failed in the week following Jennifer Lopez and the baseball player’s split announcement. A million-dollar engagement ring and four years of relationship later, Lopez and Alex Rodriguez announced their separation on April 15, 2021.
Following a month of rumors about the couple’s annulment of their engagement, which prompted them to seek therapy, the news was revealed a month later. According to sources, Lopez didn’t end the relationship with Rodriguez over his cheating, but his reputation as a cheater did. Despite her best efforts, she was unable to rely on him entirely.
According to a source in 2021, “whether or not he has cheated doesn’t matter. She won’t tolerate the fear of it in the air between them.”
Also, one of JLo’s friends revealed after the couple’s break up that Lopez was the one who wanted the split first, and the friend said, “She insisted on it. There are too many unresolved issues.”
The friend continued, “She has been pretty miserable. And didn’t think it was in her best interests to stay with Alex.”
Furthermore, the same friend of JLo added, “Jennifer has been in these difficult situations before. She is not one to sit around and cry. Her kids make her the happiest. She is doing well.”
According to multiple sources, the lack of trust Lopez had in Rodriguez ultimately destroyed their four-year romance. Rodriguez knew she would end the relationship because JLo wasn’t happy then.
Despite Ben Affleck Cheating On Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Lopez Is Back With Him
After Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck split up in 2004, Lopez married singer-songwriter and longtime friend Marc Anthony in June 2004. Affleck too soon moved on and married Jennifer Garner in 2005. However, JLo separated from Anthony in 2014, and Affleck divorced Garner in 2018.
Later in 2021, Affleck and JLo were seen hanging out again after Affleck split from Ana de Armas and JLo ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez. A year after they reunited, they got engaged in April 2022, and in July 2022, they became ‘Bennifer’ again as they got married in a private ceremony in Las Vegas.
Despite their divorce rumors swirling last month due to Ben Affleck’s drinking and smoking habits, the couple shared a new Instagram video showing their love for one another. There seems to be no end to the honeymoon period for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. A video Lopez posted on Instagram shows the two looking happy and in love. During the video, JLo gently presses her face against Affleck’s as the couple smiles at the camera.
