Bennifer seems to be back.
The two initially met while filming the movie “Gigli” in 2001 while Lopez, now 51, was still married to Cris Judd. Not long after announcing she’d filed for divorce, Lopez and Affleck went public with their relationship.
They became engaged in 2002 and were widely covered by the media. In fact, the media coverage was so wide, Bennifer is considered at least partially responsible for bringing colored gemstones into the sphere of American fashion when Affleck, now 48, proposed with a pink stone that reportedly cost $2.5 million.

The media circus that followed their life didn’t just sway fashion trends, however, as it became so intense, the couple said it was the reason they postponed their wedding.
Just a few months later, however, they’d call off their entire relationship. In years following, the two stayed relatively tight-lipped on the breakup, but eventually would reveal that public attention took its toll on them.
Still, they remained friendly with one another and moved on with various other relationships. Affleck married Jennifer Garner, with whom, he shares three children: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel 9. Lopez has 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony.
Following Lopez’s shocking split from Alex Rodriguez in April, the “Hustlers” star was seen spending time with Affleck again. At first, their meetups were reportedly friendly and not romantic, but as they increased in frequency, speculation of a reunion between the two ran rampant.
The two were spotted during a Montana getaway before Affleck was seen visiting Lopez in Miami, where they were even spotted kissing. Shortly after, the “Fargo” star had to travel back to Los Angeles to spend time with his family, but Lopez wasn’t far behind.
In photos recently obtained by Page Six, the A-list stars were pictured cuddling up to each other as they headed into a dinner date on Monday night.
The two had their arms sweetly wrapped around one another while walking into a West Hollywood restaurant all but confirming they’ve rekindled their romance.
