Jennifer Lopez + Ben Affleck
Therefore, their relationship raises questions
Especially in the last few weeks, some insiders have been speculating wildly about the marital bliss or marital hell of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Some speak of a crisis, others of an extended honeymoon. But what about the rumours?
In July 2022, almost exactly a year after their brilliant love comeback, Jennifer Lopez, 53, and Ben Affleck, 50, finally said “yes” to each other. But after their secret Las Vegas wedding and the multi-day dream wedding bash in August on the actor’s estate in Georgia, there is already a crisis. At least that’s what insiders claim in the US media. According to “Us Weekly”, other anonymous sources counter this and say that the yes word allegedly strengthened their connection. What is it now?
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are now set to show each other their true colors
“Perfection mania, non-stop argument, marriage chaos”: Recently, several insiders fought a real battle of terms with the US celebrity portal “Radar Online” in relation to Jennifer Lopez’ and Ben Affleck’s relationship. The singer has been accused of pretending to be the “perfect, carefree wife-to-be” for her lover before the wedding and now showing her true controlling face, who would take offense at Affleck’s messiness and try to dictate his style. He should react annoyed to this and get upset about her workload.
The couple have known each other for over 20 years
All of this leads to the assumption that the couple didn’t really know each other before the wedding and are now wondering about each other’s quirks. But the fact is that Bennifer, as the media and fans called her in the early 2000s, have known each other for over 20 years and were engaged in 2003. “We became friends first,” the ‘Jenny from the Block’ hitmaker said in an interview with Pat O’Brien at the time and on the ‘Today’ show in 2014 that she had her ‘first big heartbreak’ after that.
After the official love comeback in July 2022 – before that they were spotted together for several weeks – Lopez and Affleck also took a whole year to tie the knot. So they shouldn’t have been that unknown anymore. But on the contrary. Jennifer has repeatedly referred to Ben as her “best friend” in previous interviews. The alleged reasons for her love at the time? The media hype surrounding their relationship and how it would hurt Affleck’s career, which it definitely wasn’t. He made that clear in a 2008 interview with the Daily Record newspaper.
Looking for a house and an extended honeymoon phase instead of a love crisis?
More true is the claim of another insider, who told celebrity magazine Us Weekly: “The fact that they became husband and wife didn’t change their relationship much other than what they had , has strengthened”. Their honeymoon phase is said not even to have ended. After hitting the road through Paris and Italy in late summer, Jennifer and Ben are said to be “still in the honeymoon phase.”
In addition, the couple is still looking for a house together and hope “to find one that they are both happy with”. Currently, the Oscar winner is said to be fathering their blended family of five children – Affleck has three from his marriage to Jennifer Garner, 50, and Lopez has twins from his marriage to Marc Anthony, 54 – while Jennifer continues to build her film career. Her new action romance, Shotgun Wedding, is coming soon. Only Bennifer himself knows what is really true in the end.
