Ben Affleck, allegedly, declared his love for Jennifer Lopez.
New Idea published a misleading headline about the exes by saying that Ben Affleck professed his love for Lopez.
But upon close inspection, nowhere in their dubious article did that Batman v Superman star say this. In fact, the story is simply about Affleck gushing over Lopez’s good work ethic and timeless beauty.
Ben Affleck did not profess his love for Jennifer Lopez
By the looks of it, the tabloid is just linking Affleck and Lopez to each other because the latter is, reportedly, having problems with Alex Rodriguez.
The former baseball star has been accused of cheating on Lopez, but he has denied the allegations.
Meanwhile, New Idea isn’t the only tabloid that’s been linking Lopez and Affleck to each other.

OK! magazine also claimed that Lopez turned to Affleck for comfort and guidance amid her relationship woes with Rodriguez.
“Ben and Jen have been talking in private a lot over the past few months, and now the world knows just how close the two of them are again. When things started to get worse with Alex Rodriguez, Jen turned to Ben for advice,” a source said.
However, there is also no indication that Affleck and Lopez have been talking to each other regularly. The couple split in 2004 after they also called off their engagement.
Back then, Affleck and Lopez admitted that the tabloids’ constant preying on their relationship was one of the reasons why they decided to call it quits.

But it is true that there’s no bad blood between the exes. In fact, Ben Affleck recently shared some kind words about Lopez.
“I don’t know whether people know it or not, but the most impressive thing about her (and that is a long list) was her extraordinary work ethic. She had this humility coupled with the basic assumption that not only did you have to work incredibly hard to succeed, you had to then push yourself even further,” Affleck told InStyle.
Today, Ben Affleck is still single after his split from Ana de Armas. But there’s no proof that he wants to get back together with Lopez.
