Jennifer Garner Seen Out For First Time Since Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez’s Secret Rendezvous
Jennifer Garner was photographed out and about for the first time since her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, was caught rendezvousing with his ex-fiancée, Jennifer Lopez.
The 49-year-old 13 Going On 30 star went for a solo stroll in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon, wearing a wide-brimmed bucket hat, simple sunglasses, a white T-shirt tucked into a pair of black jeans, comfortable walking shoes, a gold necklace around her neck, a face mask wrapped around her hand, ear pods in her ears, and a signature Garner grin on her face – dimples and all.
Jen just got back from New York, where she was celebrating her most recent birthday, and boy did she come home to some news!
Weeks after her split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez, newly single J.Lo made headlines for hanging out with another ex-fiancé of hers (she has five) – 48-year-old Ben Affleck – who shares three children with Garner: Violet, 15, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9.
Although Ben and Jen 2.0 have been split up since 2015, they have worked incredibly hard to retain their famously amicable co-parenting relationship.
Still, Friday marks the first time we’ve seen Garner out publicly since “Bennifer” nearly broke the internet last week.
According to Page Six, Affleck has been spotted multiple times going to Lopez’s California home, even reportedly being picked up and dropped off by a white Escalade SUV – allegedly belonging to the international superstar – “after spending a few hours at her house.”
“They are friends … they’ve never not been,” a source close to the stars said.
At the height of their relationship, nothing and no one was bigger than “Bennifer.” In fact, they were the most photographed couple at the time!
The two met on the set of their disastrous film, Gigli, and by 2002, they were engaged. However, they famously split just four days before their all-out wedding was set to go down.
Lopez’s reunion with the Oscar-winning actor took place mere days after she was spotted having dinner with her latest ex, A-Rod. As Radar first reported, the Waiting For Tonight singer was photographed dining with the ex-MLB star at the Hotel Bel-Air.
The outing was the first time the former couple was seen out publicly since announcing their split last month.
“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the two said in a joint statement at the time. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children.”
Their breakup came months after Rodriguez was accused of having questionable FaceTime calls with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy. The reality star admitted to the conversations but refused to disclose what they talked about.
Sources have told Radar that A-Rod is actively trying to win J.Lo back but is not having much luck.
As for Affleck, he split from his longtime girlfriend, actress Ana de Armas, in January of this year. The two ended things after spending months together under the pandemic-induced lockdown.
