Ben Affleck flew to Miami to smoke on J.Lo’s balcony & get pap’d with her

Ben Affleck steps out for a smoke at he and Jennifer Lopez's Miami Beach Love Nest!

As we discussed last week, it felt like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were taking a pause to regroup a bit after their Montana vacation a few weeks ago. Jennifer returned to Miami, and Ben stayed in LA. People Magazine said that J.Lo did return to LA for a few days last week and she saw Ben, but then she returned to Miami. Ben was seen out with his kids in LA on Saturday and I wondered if Jennifer really was playing it smart and making Ben chase her. She was. Ben flew to Miami on Sunday and there are photos! Ben seems to be staying at Jennifer’s Miami house, and he even stepped out on the balcony a few times to smoke. Jennifer stepped out on the balcony as well, just to make sure the paps got some shots. And then this happened:

So some lucky paparazzi got their money shots, Bennifer in the same frame, yet again. I hope Ben is ready for the Hot Girl Summer he’s about to have. She’s going to put fake tanner on him again and make him laser off the phoenix back tattoo. I enjoy the fact that he came to her too – it shows me that maybe this redux will be a little bit more on her terms. And now that they’re in Miami, can they please go on a yacht together so Ben can kiss her ass and we can fully recreate the “Jenny From the Block” video?

    The leg of doom! That’s all I see.

  2. CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

    I literally laughed out loud at the photos. It’s so obvious.

  3. ThatgirlThere says:

    Whew. Home girl looked like she got that good work in from ole Ben. I honestly have never seen her looking that refreshed in all of her time with A-Roid.

    • Myra says:

      I was actually thinking that he looked somehow…hotter than before? I don’t know. Maybe because the photo is a bit grainy.

      • Joanna says:

        Yeah usually I think he’s let himself go but he looks good here.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        He looks swaggery and she looks not so try-hard.

      • DiegoInSF says:

        The JLo glow is so powerful she made him hot again, 🥵. They look so good together, this reunion has been giving me life and powering my appliances lol

    • TQ says:

      Yeah, there’s a certain relaxation in her face and a glow that I didn’t see when she was with A-Rod. I am here for it!

    • minx says:

      He looks better, she looks better, this is great gossip.

  4. Chaine says:

    He looks like he’s in a hostage video and she looks like the cat that ate the canary! Glad she’s having fun but his whole demeanor says this won’t last long.

    • SarahCS says:

      His face does not say happy to be here. Bit different to the pap walks with Anna.

      • Renata says:

        Ikr? The contrast between the Anna and even Lindsay Shookus photos is black and white. He was ecstatic in the early days of those. Made me wonder if he’s already regretting this. Is he suddenly remembering all the reasons it didnt work that first time?

        This dude didn’t even want to set a date and then he cancelled or cheated just two days to the wedding. There’s solid reasons why and just being older doesn’t fix that stuff.

      • Meg says:

        True i think he fears the backlash again of being in an overexposed relationship. He loves it himself but hates the criticism and i think her being so famous hurts his ego too

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I don’t get a positive vibe from him at all. Same as their first go round.

      • Renata says:

        Yeah, I feel like younger people only ever see the photos or footage from their first few months together so they over romantisize what really was. I remember that by the time they got engaged, there were already mummers that it was a band-aid proposal. And those rumors werent helped by the fact that she had to call him in the middle of an interview for permission to confirm their engagement. Like dude was planning on hiding an engagement after parading everything else?? And sure enough he delayed setting a date and then never got down the aisle despite her very manifest desire to do so. She was way more eager than him especially rolling past the 6th month

      • North of Boston says:

        “There were already mummers …”
        LOL! I’m picturing a company of masked mimes acting out a desperate proposal.

  5. SarahCS says:

    I just don’t get how it’s ok to stand on the street and take photos into someone’s house like that!

    Now, at the same time if I have that kind of money and fame there is no way I’d have a house that anyone could see into from anywhere but J-Lo clearly rolls very differently to me in pretty much every way.

    • Erica says:

      It’s okay because J-Lo and Ben called the photographer to do it :)

    • Myra says:

      Paparazzis invest in quality cameras so I’m guessing that the photographer ‘maybe’ is at quite a distance judging only by the quality of the images. Nowadays we also have to take into account drones and whatnot.

    • a0 says:

      Seems like the paparazzi were in a boat off the coastline. The house is right on the shore.

  6. Lily P says:

    Honestly loving this, it’s so obvious it’s for PR and that just makes it all the more enjoyable.

  7. Maddie says:

    And thus the Gossip Gods shined down their blessings upon us today!

  8. Erica says:

    The thirst is real.

  9. milliemollie says:

    The more they try to sell their “reunion”, the less believable it becomes. Sorry, they both look like complete idiots to me, even JLo

  10. Amy Bee says:

    Love it!

  11. tempest prognosticator says:

    They are entertainers and they are doing their job… entertaining us. This time, if Ben complains about not being taken seriously because of his relationship with Jlo, my eyes will roll right out of their sockets. He’s a court jester.

    • Esmom says:

      He’s not putting much effort into acting happy, though. Strikes me as passive aggressive.

    • LC says:

      I honestly love everything about this and you’re right. This is old school PR entertainment and I’m enjoying the ride. No one is forcing him to be there (and as much as he whined, he was all in the first time around too. I haven’t forgotten that full page ad he took out for her). You think JLo thought of Montana as a vacation destination? That was all him. He chose to get on a flight to Miami to see her. I just hope that when it ends, he doesn’t complain. They are twinflame attention seekers. They might even be a perfect match.

      • SaraTor says:

        Twin flame attention seekers LMFAO. Definitely some Megan Fox/GMK vibes happening here.

  12. mariahlee says:

    Dating a smoker just seems very not her style, given she’s so health and body conscious. I don’t think she’s taking this seriously at all.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I think she is an occasional smoker too. But he seems to do it nonstop. Yuck.

    • StormsMama says:

      I agree.
      Smoking is a deal breaker for me.
      When I was younger I was less sensitive about it.
      But the smell doesn’t just stay with the smoker- the chemicals linger on their fingers and skin – anything they touch gets a chemical bath of butts. So gross. So nasty.
      So NOT healthy. So NOT the JLO Glow
      I don’t get how she could be into it at all.

      Girl, take a break. Please.

    • Nina says:

      That was my first take too. Why is he still smoking? I would never date a smoker, even if he was Ben Affleck.

    • Carolnr says:

      Ben is smoking on her balcony.. not in her home. She obviously doesn’t want him to smoke inside…

    • Erica says:

      She put up with A-Rod constantly cheating on her and lord knows what he exposed her to. Smoking is probably the least of her worries.

      • Renata says:

        If you think that Ben who cheated on her with strippers and then on the mother of his kids with their nanny, and was just recently chasing a Tiktok influencer 20 years his and JLo’s junior, will not cheat on her, I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Hell, wouldn’t shock me if we see pap photos of a new playmate leaving his house next month. We can only hope she tests these trash men of hers for STIs.

      • Erica says:

        @Renata, Yes I very much know that Ben will cheat on her too LOL That’s all he did their first go round. J-Lo is all about making her body look amazing but I wish she would focus some of her energy inwards because I’m starting to think she doesn’t like herself, considering the men she chooses. She needs therapy.

      • a0 says:

        Pretty sure the TikTok video is a few years old from the time he was on Raya

  13. smee says:

    People actually think this reunion is real? It appears to be something whipped up to save Jlo face in light of Arod’s cheating. BA seems to need the publicity as well. I don’t buy any of it.

  14. Lauren says:

    Neither of these people is comfortable being single or out of the limelight for a minute. The constant need for external validation is strong with these two.

  15. Golly Gee says:

    When I saw her smile of satisfaction, my first thought was that it was a very public dig at A-Rod. The media ball is now in his ego’s court. Anything to say, A-rod?

  16. Alexandria says:

    Pls help…I can’t stop looking😆

  17. Genevieve says:

    The leg. She is massively ridiculous in every possible way.

    • Lexilla says:

      What do you mean? That’s how I stand when I do dishes. 😄

      • Genevieve says:


        You’re right, you’re right. I’m just bitter because while cooking, working, walking my dog, at the grocery checkout counter, I’ve preferred my left leg where clearly I’ve been embarrassing myself by showcasing the wrong leg.

    • Jules says:

      Omg so pathetic, I’m dying!

  18. Imogen says:

    Is Ben ashing his cigarette in the tulips? 😕

  19. Mel says:

    These two are about to dethrone Kim and Kanye as the Thirstiest couple alive. All aboard the Hot Mess Express.

  20. Justmemi says:

    He always looks so miserable!

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Ben got what he wanted, and now he’s plotting his escape. Or he is whooped out from J-Lo. She’s smiling and Ben looks exhausted.

  21. MF1 says:

    Has Ben been working out? He looks a bit slimmer here than usual. My guess is that he’s been hitting the gym in preparation for his PR appearances

    • lucy2 says:

      He does look like he’s in good shape. He worked out better for JLo than he did Batman.

      • Darla says:

        He’s appearing as Batman again in the new Flash movie, but I don’t know when that starts filming. He may be in shape for that though.

    • Jayna says:

      He looks very lean, like he was in The Accountant. I wonder if a sequel is about to start filming. I hope so. I enjoyed that movie.

      In this photo he is also as lean as he was in State of Play. We rewatched that on Netflix the other night. I can’t believe how young Ben looked in that movie. He was about 35 at the time. I’m so used to older, usually bloated Ben, until his last rehab stay seemed to put him back on track. Russell Crowe was so good in State of Play also.

  22. nicegirl says:

    Someone needs to let Ben know he’d be prettier if he smiled.

  23. Beech says:

    Yes while having a drink, I too, lower my spaghetti strap and flex my bare leg for all to photograph. Um in my dreams. Back to scooping out the litter box.

  24. Carolnr says:

    So much for taking the relationship slow! Neither one of them can be alone long!
    Jennifer Lopez looks so different without her long hair extensions & heavy makeup.
    This relationship is very new, hot, & thrilling.
    Eventually, the “thrill” of it will be gone & Ben will grow bored & tired of the incessant media, just like before, but who doesn’t like a summertime romance?

  25. Hmn says:

    They are so desperate for their new hookup to be as big as it was when they were younger. Times have changed. Most see them as desperate for attention

  26. Ohreally says:

    Ben took a thirsty pap walk with Ana daily so this is his lane no matter what he would like to pretend. Jennifer Lopez will replace him easily so he’d better keep up.

  27. Andrea says:

    This feels like old school paps and gossip at its finest. Clearly they called the paps, so I don’t get his grumpy face although dry drunks can be the grumpiest so maybe that explains it. Jlo looks like she is enjoying the lovin and sticking it to Arod. I must say, some of the best sex can come from addicts, but the rest that comes with it is a toxic mess. Arod will regret sliding into Madison’s dms now. I also think we all need to buckle up. I have a feeling Bennifer 2.0 is lasting all summer.

  28. K says:

    Let’s face’s Hot Flash Summer for these two. I’m here for it though. As I reach for my evening primrose oil.

  29. Eleonor says:

    I love everything of this.
    I can’t wait for the IG official.

  30. a0 says:

    This is amazing gossip, why is everyone so pissy about it lol

  31. Amando says:

    Ugh…Jennifer..when will you learn? I hope she’s just getting some good D and then cutting him loose for good. He’s hot, but he’s a mess.

  32. Annaloo. says:

    I LOVE all this

    That JLo is back with Ben Affleck is a red flag of her low self esteem like no other, but I bet they are having AMZING sex

    Poor A-Rod

    If JLo sold a “This smells like my vagina” candle, I’d actually believe that ish worked.

  33. Jess says:

    Why does he always look like a grumpy teenager with emo posture

  34. Sarcasm101 says:

    She’s setting a wonderful example for her children. Bounce from guy to guy, screaming you’re in love, then be that much in love with someone else three days later. These two are whackos.

  35. Meg says:

    I thought I saw a headline of her with a pic of her recently with the pink ring on? Then today he’s got a watch on she gave him back when they were first together.

    • Lena says:

      He probably returned it to her after their split (as you should) & she saved it all these years because she’s a damn sucker for his ish.

  36. Jayna says:

    I bet J-Lo already has Ben booked for appointments to begin the laser removal of his massive back tattoo.

  37. Laura-j says:

    Taika at least looks like he’s having fun…

  38. Sabstar says:

    @DIEGOINSF Snap! JLO looks gorgeous like the benifer reunion has given her even more of a glow! 🙏 It lasts the summer…
