Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s relationship is allegedly just for show.

In its August 16 issue, Star claimed that Lopez and Affleck both enjoy being photographed together because they are fame-obsessed.

When they dated years ago, the A-listers were also photographed by the paparazzi everywhere they went. And now, the same thing is happening.

But a source claimed that Lopez and Affleck’s relationship isn’t meant to last. After all, they are just boosting each other’s ego right now while their relationship is still hot.

“They’ve done a masterful job projecting a fairytale to the world that they’re head over heels in love again. But it’s still kind of a game for them and a different story when the cameras are off. It’s well known that they both live and breathe attention,” the source said.

The source also claimed that Lopez is just flaunting her relationship with Affleck because she wants to publicly humiliate Alex Rodriguez.

Rodriguez was recently accused of cheating on Lopez. And even though he denied the allegations, he and Lopez announced their split shortly after.

This is allegedly one of the reasons why Lopez and Affleck jumped into a relationship with each other. The World of Dance host wants nothing more than to hurt her ex.

In the same way, Affleck’s ego was allegedly hurt when Ana de Armas suddenly dumped him. The two had been making public appearances for months when the Cuban star suddenly ended things with Affleck.

Months later, de Armas was linked to another hunky star.

“Now that he’s back with Jen, he’s gone from being a jilted, scruffy guy to this Romeo whose gorgeous ex is throwing herself at him. He was basically like, ‘What’s not to like here?’ It’s a huge win for him,” the source said.

However, since Lopez and Affleck’s intentions for dating each other aren’t pure, the tabloid is predicting that they would just end up hurting each other.

After all, it’s only a matter of time before Lopez finds the next best thing. And the same goes for Affleck.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.

Lopez and Affleck seem genuinely happy when they are together. So, it’s hard to assume that they are just using each other.

It is also important to note that Lopez and Affleck are already very famous as individuals. So, they do not need each other to become even more popular.
