Among all the celebrity couples, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have garnered the most steam in recent months, following their long history together. And even though the two are adamant about making their second chance work at all costs, it seems things haven’t been absolutely jovial between the two following some new reports.
Ever since the duo rekindled their bond, eventually tying the knot back in 2022, reports have emerged, claiming there allegedly has been a slight rift between the two. Although these reports were mostly dismissed, an insider recently claimed the duo is once again facing issues, following Ben Affleck’s want to go on a double date with his ex-wife.
Ben Affleck Is Allegedly Interested in Going on a Double Date With His Ex-wife and Her Beau
After parting ways with Jennifer Lopez back in the early 2000s, the BVS Star found his match in Elektra Star Jennifer Garner, with whom he shared 3 kids throughout their 13-year-long marriage. But despite no longer being romantically inclined toward each other, the two remain excellent friends behind the curtains. And as per recent revelations, Ben Affleck allegedly wants Jennifer Lopez to go on a double date with Jennifer Garner and her current beau John Miller, claiming it’d help them co-parent their kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. The Insider claimed,
“He thinks it would be a lot of fun and great for the kids,”
However, according to the Insider, it seems the Mother Star has no interest in advancing towards the double date idea, as she allegedly finds it “offensive” and uncomfortable.
Jennifer Lopez Allegedly Founds the Idea Offensive and Bizarre
It appears not once but Ben Affleck allegedly brought up the double date idea on several occasions, only to be turned down every time by Lopez, as the actress found the idea bizarre and offensive. The Insider continued that Affleck hates turning down invitations, as they come across as anti-social.
“Ben gets on great with John and has suggested couples’ date nights to him and Jen, which they are both down with. But J-Lo turns it down flat every time,” The Insider stated. “She’s told him it’s bizarre and offensive that he keeps pushing the idea when she finds it so uncomfortable.”
On the bright side, there hasn’t been any substantial weight to back the claims, so nothing can be said for certain about the alleged situation. And following Jennifer Lopez’s recent Instagram activity, where she shared a heartfelt post wishing Ben Affleck his 51st birthday, things do appear alright between the two from an outside perspective.
