Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez ended their engagement in 2004. After two years of dating, they went on to have separate lives and embarked on new relationships.

But, nearly two decades following their split, tabloids claimed that the former couple is likely rekindling their romance. Sources asserted that the Selena star is "leaning on" her ex-boyfriend due to the legal woes she and Alex Rodriguez are facing.

The supposed insiders continued that Lopez and Affleck "are still in contact" today, adding that it would not come as a surprise if they decide to get back together. The DCEU star has always, reportedly, provided "good advice," especially amid the challenging times that the artist is currently experiencing.

Gossip Cop covered the latest allegations about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Based on the narrative analysis, the publication found out that the entire story is "misleading" and described it as "ridiculous."

The reputed outlet noted that, while it remains unknown whether the former couple has maintained a good friendship over the years, Lopez and Affleck are not back together. As emphasized, the "On The Floor" singer is still engaged to Alex Rodriguez, and the Batman actor is still dealing with his break-up with Ana de Armas.

Gossip Cop, also, pointed out that the tabloids, which are responsible for the allegations, are not the "most reliable sources" of news regarding the celebrities. The reason being is that they have repeatedly released bogus claims in the past.

The latest rumors about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez seemingly stemmed from the actor's recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast. Earlier this month, the Armageddon star talked about his former fiancé and recalled how the media was "so mean" to the "Let's Get Loud" singer during their relationship, according to Us Weekly.

Although Affleck had good things to say about Lopez, he did not mention whether they are in contact with each other. He did not clarify, as well, if they remained as friends after their split.

Reports said, however, that the former couple previously revealed that they both contributed to their break-up. Even so, they did not go into the details as to why they called off the engagement and separated for good.

A week after Ben Affleck's interview, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez gave their fans a treat on social media. Following the artist's performance during Joe Biden's inauguration, she and her soon-to-be-husband posted photos on Instagram, featuring their sweet and fun poses at the Capitol. (Business Times)
