The Internet lost it Tuesday when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner confirmed they're divorcing, and then speculation started to spark about why they're calling it quits. One of the rumored reasons in the mix was Ben's ex Jennifer Lopez, who he split from in 2004.
"Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it's inevitable they will get together again at some point," an insider told the UK's Sun. "They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch over email. Jennifer Garner never liked it."
According to the New York Daily News though, Ben and Jen "haven't spoken." Gossip Cop also shut down the reconciliation chatter, saying, J.Lo "is NOT trying to get back together with Ben Affleck." The "Booty" crooner's rep echoed those sentiments, telling the site it's simply "not true" that J.Lo is "waiting in the wings" to get back together with Ben.
Part of this speculation was fueled by Ben and J.Lo's interaction at this year's Oscars. At the time, the AP reported that Ben "whispered something" in her ear before she "playfully swatted" his arm.
We get that J.Lo is hot and maybe Ben did a little much at the Academy Awards, but, she isn't the reason behind Ben and Jennifer Garner's break-up. The Boy Next Door star also seems rather cozy again with her on again, off again boyfriend Casper Smart.
We'd never say never, but for now, these two are not getting back together. Sorry Bennifer fans.
