Former couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have sent ardent Bennifer fans into speculation overdrive of late. From holidaying together in what appear to be very romantic circumstances, a source has now revealed to TMZ that Affleck was sending “loving” and “longing” emails to the star as early as February.
Now, while all this should be taken with a grain of salt, the outlet is reporting that the alleged emails were sent by Affleck after seeing pictures of Lopez filming her upcoming movie Shotgun Wedding. “He wrote to tell her how beautiful she looked, and how much he wished he could be down there with her,” reports TMZ.
The outlet also noted Affleck would have been filming The Tender Bar and Lopez would still have been engaged to her former partner Alex Rodriguez. JLo’s former flame was apparently shocked by the seemingly rekindled romance.
According to a source, A-Rod was quite blindsided by their split after rumours emerged he had cheated on the star. “He truly thought they would be able to make it work and reconnect. He has been reaching out to J.Lo trying to meet with her and she has been very short with him.”
The source told TMZ that Lopez admired Affleck’s prose and told him he’d be able to “own her heart” with his pen.
From their recent Montana trip to the inclusion of a quote from Affleck in one of Lopez’s recent interviews, it does seem like the evidence of a Bennifer round 2 is stacking up.
For those who missed it, Affleck said of Lopez: “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”
It seems that now all we’re waiting for is official confirmation from the pair in question.
