Jennifer Lopez is allegedly not as interested in Ben Affleck as he is with her.

In its May 19 issue, Heat UK claimed that Lopez is just using Affleck to fix her image after her split from Alex Rodriguez.

Even though Rodriguez denied that he cheated on Lopez, the latter allegedly knows what happened. And Lopez couldn’t help but feel ashamed that she was cheated on.

So, the singer’s friends convinced her to hook up with another celebrity who is more famous than Rodriguez so that she could fix her image. And Lopez allegedly chose Affleck.

“Ben checks all the boxes especially as she’s been hitting her up for a while now and openly flirting with her. They’re hanging out at their houses and having fun together, but there is also a plan about how all of this is going to be handled, and it’s not just them involved – it feels a bit like a dating contract,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that Affleck wouldn’t be thrilled to know that Lopez is just using him. After all, the actor has fallen head over heels for his former fiancée.

In fact, another tabloid claimed that Affleck and Lopez’s relationship is progressing rather quickly because the former is also encouraging the latter to elope.

In its May 24 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Affleck wants to wed Lopez in Mexico so he’s asking her to elope with him. However, Lopez doesn’t necessarily feel the same way about Affleck and she has no plans to marry him.

Despite the tabloids’ claims, fans of Affleck and Lopez must be aware that the two are nothing more than friends. They are hanging out as friends and are leaning on each other since they both just got out of their respective relationships. However, there is no proof that the A-listers are dating.

Still, multiple publications are insisting that this is not the case. According to Us Weekly, Affleck and Lopez’s friendship is moving towards a romantic connection.

A source for the tabloid claimed that it is Lopez that still has some feelings for Affleck and not the other way around. And in order for their alleged relationship to last until the end, the A-listers have allegedly agreed to take things slow.

But until Lopez and Affleck directly confirm that they are dating, it is best to take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.
