Jennifer Lopez coordinates her gym look while Ben & her mom gamble in Vegas

Jennifer Lopez dons an ab-baring gym outfit!

Jennifer Lopez is back in Miami. She was seen and photographed outside of her favorite gym on Thursday. J.Lo is so type-A that she coordinates her gym clothes to her manicure to her sunglasses to her lipstick. I’m really into it, because I feel like her hyper-styled look is part and parcel of the Bennifer redux. There’s something about Jennifer being with a schlubby guy like Ben that makes her go extra with her styling. The more Ben looks and smells like a cigarette-ash-covered donut, the more makeup Jennifer will wear to the gym.

While Jennifer spent (by my count) more than a week in LA with Ben, they really did go their separate ways for the time being. When Jennifer went back to Miami, Ben headed to Las Vegas. Which… will always, always be a problem. But it brings up several pieces of gossip history. One, Ben’s gambling problem became very pronounced when he was with J.Lo the first time around – he would spend night after night gambling, playing blackjack or poker. He kept gambling A LOT post-J.Lo, even when he was with Jennifer Garner. It was back in 2014 that Ben was banned for life from gambling at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas.

The other interesting piece of Gossip History is that J.Lo’s mom Guadalupe is also a huge gambler. When Ben and Jen were together the first time around, Ben would regularly take Guadalupe out gambling in Atlantic City or Vegas. They enjoyed each other’s company, and Guadalupe was reportedly a huge fan of Ben. Well, guess what? Guadalupe is still ride-or-die for Ben. She was with him in Las Vegas on Thursday, and they were gambling together at the Wynn Resort and Casino Reportedly, Ben is in Vegas on some kind of secret project, but who knows. I can’t decide whether or not I think it’s weirdly sweet that Ben was like “pack your bags, Guadalupe, I’m taking you to Vegas for a few days.” And she was like “OMG!” PS… The Daily Mail noted that Ben didn’t spend the whole time gambling with Guadalupe. He was alone at the big-spenders area until 3am Wednesday morning.

    J.los mum must be good at gambling,i have read that she has won millions.

    • lucy2 says:

      She won a slots jackpot at the Borgata years ago.

    • Lisa says:

      Sadly…gambling is no different from taking drugs or alcohol when it comes to a person struggling with addiction. In this case, Ben has enough money to where if he put a cap on how much he is willing to lose, it wouldnt matter if he gambles. My brother is a gambling addict, we had him banned from all the casinos in his home country (that is actually doable if its a totalitarian state) but he then just settled into alcoholism, which his wife and family seem to tolerate, if not completely ignore…but if he was given a chance, he’d hit vegas so he could drink and gamble and possibly hit up some hookers too! Sadly, there is nothing endearing about seeing Ben out there gambling with another old lady gambler, mother in law or not. Lol. Its the dopamine hit that is gonna be the slippery slope for this dope. By the time he goes back to complete hot mess, Jlo will drop him and look for some other fuckwit to cheat on her.

  2. Darla says:

    I read that he’s there filming something with Shaq? I don’t know. Damn Jlo looks HHHHHOT.

    • Chaine says:

      She’s sizzling! JLo, just you dump Ben again and I’ll ditch my hubs and we can make it work!

  3. Abby says:

    Oh I’m sure this is gonna end well.

    I laughed at Jennifer’s water bottle because of course it’s covered in crystals. But also…I kind of want it? 😆

    • carousel says:

      Search “JLo bling cups” she’s been taking those things everywhere for a while now. They’re tacky as hell and yet… I kind of want one!

    • Annaloo. says:

      I’ll take that bottle too, and I think SHE should be the one making vagina candles and doling body acceptance/sex/wellness advice. How much is the world in love w JLo right now?

      Omg, I’m going to be on about jlo glow vs goop glow this summer, but really, I’m so amped for Jlo’s absolute radiance this year

  4. Gil says:

    There some schlubby men that make me think kissing them would be like kissing an ashtray. Ben Affleck is one of them.

  5. EnormousCoat says:

    The weirdest part of all this, for me, is who Ben’s ex-wife is. Her image has me believe that she sings her children awake in the mornings, feeds them homemade apple muffins, and tells them she loves them & to make good choices. All this juxtaposed with a man who looks like he crawls out of a dumpster with his pants on backwards every morning of his life.
    Idk how Jlo fits into this, but her mom being a gambler does add a new dimension, I guess. Didn’t her mom also call Ben when Jlo’s marriage was on the skids? Anyway, Jlo needs to not listen to her mom bc she bets on losers.

    • EnormousCoat says:

      I need some kind of ‘The Boy Is Mine’ collab from the Jennifers at the end of this where they both slam the door in his scrungy, stinky face. If all of this ends any other way, I will never recover from my disappointment.

      • Margot says:

        YES! A Brandy & Monica remake would be amazing!

      • EnormousCoat says:

        Margot, I’ve gone a bit further with this because, why not.
        The scene is Gotham, a dark figure casts a menacing shadow over the city.
        Cut to JG with a tattoo on her back that reads “Bless His Heart”. Cut to Jlo in a pink tracksuit shadow boxing. Next shot is both women taking on the shadowy, menacing figure: it’s Affleck as the joker. He gets punched by both women simultaneously. Jlo uses her pink engagement ring, JG the Superbowl ring the nanny wore. The Joker is vanquished & the Jennifers live happily ever after.

      • nicegirl says:

        Big Coat, I LOVE IT. Too fab

      • Snazzy says:

        OMG EnourmousCoat, I must see this now.

    • Sid says:

      Lopez’s mom and Affleck apparently got along famously and were gambling buddies back during the first incarnation of Bennifer. She apparently really liked him and was disappointed when the marriage didn’t happen.

      I suspect Garner and Affleck never would have gotten married if not for the pregnancy.

      • Imara219 says:

        Did, looking back one can see how miserable Ben always looked with Garner. I’m sure he’s OK with being a dad but it didn’t look like heated passion with her.

      • CL says:

        I suspect the same. I do think he genuinely loved her, just not on the same level as he loved JLo

  6. Calibration says:

    I love jlo and will always. Have a friend who worked for her for years and loved her. She’s actually a good person! But Ben gambling in lv? Come on. That’s the drinking /gambling shit that went down years ago. And again. This is when he crashes.

    • LaurenMichelle says:

      Ben is so self-destructive. Very talented and hard working, but he will never let any woman dictate his lifestyle. Hope he doesn’t relapse. How does Ben stay up all night gambling and work during the day? This doesn’t sound healthy.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Yeah-the moment I saw these photos I thought, oh here we go. Nothing good is coming from this.

    • Mika says:

      I knew someone who used to do JLo’s hair when she was filming in Toronto in the early oughts. Apparently, she’s an extremely nice person and very down to earth.

    • a0 says:

      He never stopped gambling and hosted a fundraiser for his charity every year in Vegas. Matt Damon co-hosted with him a few times in the past few years so mustn’t consider it a red flag for his alcoholism.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Not necessarily. He hasn’t been clean that long and has had lots of relapses. Gambling is an addiction and can be a gateway for a primary addiction —alcohol in Ben’s case — to take hold again.

    • Lawcatb says:

      Someone with his addiction issues should not be gambling, and he sure as hell shouldn’t be anywhere near Vegas without a sober coach attached to his hip.

  7. Carolnr says:

    Ben did the same thing thing ( stayed up all night) directing “Live ByNight” & it was a disaster!
    I think Ben actually taught her mother how to gamble. Once again, Ben has someone enabling his addictions. Sadly, I think all his addictions are coming back & fast! He was a quoted as saying when he starts one addiction, eventually all the others come back, as well! I hope not…his children need him to part of their lives!!!

  8. Case says:

    Apparently Ben Affleck is working on a commercial in Vegas with Shaq so hopefully that’s all it is.

  9. Merricat says:

    If he’s gambling, he’s on self-destruct.

  10. Tiff says:

    Bens taking Guadalupe to Vegas?!? Now I’m 100% rooting for them! Plus, i haven’t seen Ben Affleck smile in like 20 years and now I’ve seen 2 picture of him in the last month smiling! I’m waiting for JLo to slowly groom him and put in in shiny suits! #TeamBennifer1.0

  11. TeamMeg says:

    So thirsty!

  12. Mamasan says:

    J Lo is a beautiful woman and a fantastic dancer. But her picker sucks. I mean really sucks.

  13. Ann says:

    For those who have been to Vegas, or on a cruise ship where there is a gambling area (I’ve done both, one time each), gamblers seem to be SMOKERS. The place would stink of cigarettes and there would be ashtrays full of butts next to the machines. I hadn’t smelled that smell in years, it hit me hard. Reminded me of the bad old days when people could smoke freely in bars and restaurants.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Multiple addictions.

    • Chaine says:

      I can’t stand a casino for that reason. To me, they are caverns flooded with decades of stale secondhand smoke.

    • MariettaJones says:

      They actually have specific areas for non-smokers. At least in Vegas from what I’ve seen. So you can go gamble and not have to smell it. 🙂

  14. KNy says:

    Why does this make me want Ben and JLo’s mother to start dating?

  15. ME says:

    Her mom actually won $2.5 million gambling in Atlantic City. The issue here is Ben had an addiction so he needs to be careful. I hope J.Lo’s mom understands that and doesn’t invite him for a fun day gambling with her. I’m sure she knows better.

  16. February-Pisces says:

    Jlo looks like 2003 Jlo, which is good considering she has her 2003 boyfriend again. Her hoop earrings and glasses are so from her ‘Jenny from the block’ days. All she needs is her juicy couture tracksuit and she’s complete.

    • Mle428 says:

      February-Pisces I was going to comment on the sunglasses! They’re straight out of the Jenny from the block period.

  17. Jules says:

    yikes that thumbnail of her, had no idea it was her.

  18. Starkille says:

    Her personal style is soooo stuck in the 90s.

  19. SusanRagain says:

    I hate the way she scrapes her hair back so tightly!
    It looks awful and painful, ask anyone that has ever worn their hair like that.

    So, Ben is back to gambling and/or drinking again?
    Man child!

  20. JennyF says:

    I should know this but don’t. Why did JLo and Ben split originally?

    • Clara says:

      He cheated.

    • a0 says:

      There was a story in the National Enquirer about Ben going to a strip club with Christian Slater but one of the strippers involved successfully sued for defamation of character. Ben joked about it on Jay Leno and JLo talked about it in W Magazine so it didn’t seem like a dealbreaker in their relationship at the time.

      Seemed like Ben got in his head and freaked out about the attention and there were legit stories that his team had crisis talks and encouraged him to slow down and postpone the wedding. Then JLo ended it months later when she realized he had no plans to marry her.

  21. Amando says:

    I wish JLo would pay attention to all of these red flags. There’s no doubt that he has a gambling addiction because most addicts have more than one addiction. Either this is the beginning of a relapse or he’s already in one. What is she thinking??

  22. JillyBean says:

    Vegas is awesome. So many judgy Judy’s who like to comment from their high horses
