Ben Affleck ‘spoils’ J.Lo with love: He’s ‘very witty, charming’ & ‘a man’s man’


I’m really beginning to wonder if Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck end their dates and Jennifer immediately calls up her manager Benny Medina and tells him everything that happened and everything she’s feeling. And then Benny calls up People Magazine, Page Six and E! News and tells them what’s on her mind. That’s what it feels like. Maybe Jennifer has always been like that – she’s always been very old-school media, much like George Clooney, and she definitely wants us (and Ben) to know how she’s feeling about her relationships.

As we know, Jennifer flew into LA over the weekend for business and bidness. Ben and Jen were photographed out in West Hollywood, having dinner, on Memorial Day. Apparently, Benny Medina was there!! They were on a double-date, sort of. Benny was there and so was Jennifer’s producing partner.

It looks like Jennifer Lopez is feelin’ so good after her date night with Ben Affleck. The 51-year-old singer and the 48-year-old actor were spotted dining at the Pendry Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. on May 31. An eyewitness told E! News the A-listers enjoyed a meal at the rooftop restaurant Merois along with J.Lo’s manager Benny Medina and movie producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas. And it looks like Lopez and Affleck weren’t afraid to show a little PDA.

“Ben had his arm around Jennifer at dinner and they weren’t shy about being affectionate,” the eyewitness said. “He looked great and seemed very happy. She also looked happy and kept leaning into him.”

A source said the two were cuddling at the table and that Affleck and Lopez “looked very comfortable and relaxed together.” Overall, it seemed like everyone in the star-studded group had a blast. “He mixed in well with her friends and seemed very comfortable talking to them and making conversation,” the eyewitness continued. “They all had a lot of laughs and a great time.”

When it was time to leave, Lopez and Affleck walked out hand in hand—keeping close, the eyewitness added, with the Hustlers actress resting her head on his shoulder.

So, is Bennifer officially back? “She’s crazy about Ben,” a source close to Lopez told E! News. “He spoils her with love and is very witty and charming. He’s a man’s man, and she finds him so attractive and strong. She’s in it for the long term and sees her future with him.”

[From E! News]

“He spoils her with love” really?? Or is he love-bombing and then getting bored once he’s locked it down? “He’s a man’s man,” my God. Jennifer is really doing the most. Bless her heart. But I’m sure Ben loves that – she puffs him up and tells him he’s great at everything.

Meanwhile, sources also ran to Page Six (“and another thing!”) to say that Jennifer’s first priority will always be her kids, but she also believes that this could be something. Here’s a notable quote from an unnamed source: “She’s 51 and has always put importance on chemistry. She’s wondering how many times lightning can strike. She feels like he has grown since they were together.” Why lead with her age? I think it’s something of a side story that Jennifer is mainly into Ben because they do have that history together, because he is familiar, and because her 51-year-old ass doesn’t want to start over with some 25-year-old backup dancer. Ben is like an old, Botoxed, warm blanket.

    The Pathetic Bar just got even lower. For both of them.

      It’s so pathetic it’s hilarious.

    • AnneSurely says:

      It’s so cringeworthy. You would think JLo would have more dignity than this. I’m just grossed out.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Let’s not forget the wrinkly tramp stamp as well, which will toss anyone’s appetite!

  2. milliemollie says:

    The more they go to tabloids to tell every detail about their reunion, the less I believe them.

    • Pix says:

      I know. Still, I just want to see them on a boat with him slathering sunscreen all over her back and cupping her booty. I love that video.

  3. Twin falls says:

    I’m assuming a man’s man doesn’t need a men’s make-up line?

  4. Darla says:

    It’s so weird, I haven’t heard that expression “a man’s man” in a long time, but my Uber driver over Memorial Day told me the same. He was going on about being a designer, which cool, but specified several times he was a man’s man. Finally I said, yeah I get it, you’re a heterosexual fashion designer, I’ve heard of them. lol

  5. nicegirl says:

    I feel like I’m watching a train about to wreck it. But I cannot look away. SMH

    • EliseM says:

      I hear you. I just keep hearing the line that Jennifer Garner said about Ben, ” when he shines the light on you, you feel it. But when the sun is shining elsewhere, its cold”. How long before winter sets in ?

      • iconoclast59 says:

        @EliseM, I was thinking about that quote, too, and wondering the same thing.

  6. B says:

    You’d they would have learned something from bennifer 1.0 and try to keep things private instead of leaking to the press every 5 seconds.

    • Darla says:

      It must be hard to resist though. They are huge. Maybe Pit and Aniston could match this (maybe not), but they never will because Jen is over it and I’ve long believed that. I also thought Ana de Armas might pull Chris Evans out of her pocket, I really did, especially when she signed for The Gray Man, but that’s not happening. There’s nobody who can touch them right now as far as power couples go. It’s gotta really do things to your ego.

  7. Bibi says:

    I love me some Bennifer! Bring it on 😁🥰

  8. lunchcoma says:

    I’m mortified on behalf of everyone involved, particularly the teenagers who have to suffer through their parents’ extremely public showmance.

  9. Nicole says:

    The Anthony genes are strong in Max, but Emme is all JLo’s mom. Genetics are so cool, that’s all I got.

  10. Jaded says:

    This is totally barfworthy.

  11. S808 says:

    yeah this ain’t gonna last but I’m here while it’s entertaining!

  12. Merricat says:

    This is what she’s telling herself, because she needs to be the one who does the breaking up, and he’s the one who got away.

  13. Sarcasm101 says:

    This narrative has been the same since she started dating, She seems to be this “in love” every ten minutes. Looking for the fairytale ending. Wake up. He has issues yes, they both do.

  14. Jayna says:

    I was watching old Jennifer interviews. I just watched one with Andy Cohen where she didn’t have a type as far as it being about looks, but she had a type in that she liked manly men. She considered all of her exes manly men. I wondered while watching if she meant a macho personality.

  15. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    How can your kids be your “top priority” when you’re planning your life around seeing a man who lives across the country? Every week they are seeing each other, both of them flying back and forth… sorry but this relationship is quite obviously your top priority at the moment. I feel bad for celebrity kids bc no matter how much money their parents have, all they want is love and attention at the end of the day.

    • Deanne says:

      Exactly. Publicity and jumping from relationship to relationship are clearly her top priority.

  16. Soupie says:

    Gag me.

  17. Meg says:

    “He spoils her with love and is very witty and charming. He’s a man’s man, and she finds him so attractive and strong.”

    This feels like the british tabloids telling us how to feel about them, trying too hard to control our perception of them

  18. Beyonce says:

    To make this even funnier, keep in mind that J.Lo was engaged to someone else 3 months ago and Ben was in a full time public romance with extreme levels of thirst and paparazzi involvement. They’re meant to be.

    • Amelie says:

      Not that surprising. Everyone forgets she married Marc Anthony 3 months after she and Ben ended their engagement and broke up the first time.

  19. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    “For business and bidness.”


  20. Choupette says:

    I can’t help but wonder how Jen Garner is taking this. How could you not feel a bit like he was pining for Jlo the entire time?! And the women’s public personas are so different. Jen G is the dorky mom (it me, no shade) and Jlo is the perpetual hot chick. Maybe I’m projecting, but that’s got to sting, no?

    • Chelsea says:

      The man was already caught boinking and publicly galivanting with her nanny only for her to find that he’d also been having an affair with a woman(the snl producer) as well. Im not sure it’s possible for him to make her feel like more s*** than he already has.

      Also it’s so crazy that nannygate was only like 5 years ago. For some reason i felt like it was a decade plus ago. I also forgot how messt it was; he brought her on Tom Brady’s private plane where she posed with Tom’s Super Bowl rings and he qlegedly slept with her while they were on a family vacation with Jen and the kids. It’s amazing that he was able to recover PR wise from that so quickly.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      Jen G can’t be happy about how their kids are being short-changed. I presume they’re in school during the week, so weekends are their best opportunity to have quality time with Dad. But Ben’s too busy spending his weekends flying back and forth to get laid (and papped).

    “He’s a man’s man”

    JLo and JRod broke off their engagement like 7 weeks ago. That’s all I have to say.

  22. Exactly says:

    I’ve always wondered if Benny Medina has anything to do with these leaks. Didn’t she leave his management company after Ben A. and her split because of him? I wouldn’t be surprised if Benny Medina has had pined for her all these years and has been trying to sabotage her relationships so he could one day have her himself. You never know in Hollyweird.

    • Julie says:

      Isn’t Benny Medina gay? And the G_dfather to her kids? They did, however, once have a falling out kinda due to Ben advising her to switch her management.
