Jennifer Lopez saved her reunion with Ben Affleck until ending things with Alex Rodriguez


A new report indicates that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck held off on their in-person reunions until she had ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez.

‘She didn’t see Ben until it was over with Alex,’ a source close to Lopez, 51, told People on Tuesday.

Despite taking their time before more romantic meetups, it was previously reported that Affleck, 48, had been emailing his ex going back to February, when she was in the Dominican Republic filming her movie Shotgun Wedding.

No rush: A new report says Jennifer Lopez, 51, and Ben Affleck, 48 waited to meet in-person until she ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez. ‘She didn’t see Ben until it was over with Alex,’ a source close to her told People

According to the insider, ‘Jennifer was in contact with Ben before she split from Alex.’

However, ‘it was friendly conversations and they didn’t make a plan behind Alex’s back that they would date.’ 

It appears as if the two were taking their time and seeing how their relationship might progress.

The news comes after the Oscar winner was seen being picked up in what was reportedly Lopez’s SUV and taken to her home, after dropping his car off at the Bel-Air Hotel, presumably in hopes that their rendezvous would go unnoticed.

TMZ previously reported that Affleck had been sending Lopez emails dating back to February, when she filming her upcoming comedy film in the Dominican Republic.

The emails weren’t merely friendly, though, but apparently were filled with longing for the Hustlers star.

He reportedly wrote about wishing her could join her and complimented her beauty, though he was busy himself in Boston where he was filming The Tender Bar with his friend George Clooney.

Affleck also reportedly referenced Lopez’s love of his writing and wrote that he could ‘own her heart’ with his pen.

That shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, as Affleck received an Academy Award for his screenplay to Good Will Hunting, which he wrote with the film’s star Matt Damon.

He also wrote several of the films he directed, including Gone Baby Gone and The Town, and he reunited with Damon for the first time in more than a decade to co-write the screenplay for their upcoming film The Last Duel, which is directed by Ridley Scott.

The Argo star and director was seen driving an SUV headed toward the airport, while Lopez was his passenger.

The actress ‘had a great time with Ben,’ a source told People, adding, ‘She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.’

The two were whisked away to the western state on a private jet, and Ben reportedly owns a chalet in the area.

The two were away for ‘about a week,’ according to E! News, and they ‘were alone’ for the duration of the trip.
