Are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck dating again? According to rumors the Bennifer are back

Hold on to your hats because one of the iconic couples of the early 2000s is back to flame the world's gossip: the Bennifer. According to the international press, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are in love again, as they were seventeen years ago when the paparazzi followed their every move, keeping us updated on their every kiss, date or fight.

A few days after the first rumors and the shots that portrayed the two wandering around the new villa rented in Miami, the confirmation came with a kiss. Finally we can say that it's official: Bennifer are back!

"Jen and Ben have remained friends over the years and have seen each other often". Swore a source to E! News, noting how the two have stayed in touch since their relationship ended in 2004. While according to US Weekly  they "had a heart-to-heart and it reignited the spark between them." Since then everything would progress very quickly. TMZ reveals that the two started emailing each other again since February, when JLo was in the Dominican Republic filming Shotgun Wedding. Once she returned from the set, Ben, who has been single for a few months after the end of his relationship with Ana de Armas, invited her to dinner, as confirmed by the usual mysterious source: "Ben reached out to her to see how she was doing and they had dinner together a few times within this last month. It’s natural between them and the chemistry is unreal. They picked up where they last left off and are enjoying each other’s company right now." In the meantime, Lopez too has suddenly ended her engagement (it seems for the continuous betrayals of the sportsman) with Alex Rodriguez, opening the way to a romantic return with her ex-boyfriend. The latest news reports of a love getaway. Sunday, May 2 were both in LA, where they appeared (separately) at Vax Live, JLo performed live and Ben alongside Jimmy Kimmel, then, after the event, the couple boarded a private jet and flew together to Montana. The destination? The Yellowstone Club, a luxury ski resort where the Bennifer spent about a week just the two of them. According to People, who also posted a few shots from the trip, "They have a strong connection. It's all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy".

Will it be true love or just friendship, a way that the two celebrities use to forget their respective exes? No one knows for sure, but nostalgics of the early 2000s and lovers of happy endings are hoping for the first option, including Matt Damon. Interviewed by the TV Today show, the actor and Affleck's bff said: 

I hope it's true. I love them both. That would be awesome. - And then he pointed out that he wouldn't add more on this topic - There's not enough liquor in the world for you to get me to say something about that.

The first affair between Ben and Jennifer lasted from 2002 to 2004. They started dating in July 2002 during the filming of the movie Gigli, soon becoming the most popular couple in international gossip, as they also showed in the video of Jenny from the block. The highlight of their relationship came with the marriage proposal and a Harry Winston ring made special by a 6.1-carat pink diamond. Then, just one step away from their wedding day, the Bennifer broke up. Looking back on that period, Ben, who is known for being always friendly with his exes (just on Mother's Day he celebrated his ex-wife Jennifer Garner with a post on Instagram), recently said on The Hollywood Reporter podcast: 

People were so f****** mean about her. Sexist, racist. Ugly, vicious s*** was written about her in ways that if you wrote it now, you would literally be fired for saying those things you said. Now it’s like, she’s lionized and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished — as well she f****** should be!

These words of appreciation give us hope that this time between Ben and Jen is true love!

While we wait to see how things unfold, G-Club celebrates their reunion with a roundup of the best Bennifer's fashion moments.
