Jennifer Lopez’s mom is ‘thrilled’ that Jen & Ben Affleck are back together now

Ben Affleck pictured picking up his favorite coffee delivery!

After being away from each other for several days last week, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck apparently reunited last Friday. Jennifer was working in Miami for a few days, and she was seen wearing one of Ben’s flannel shirts, so that’s how she feels about Ben. At the same time, Ben was in Las Vegas, working on a mystery project. He brought Jennifer’s mom Guadalupe along for the trip and they went gambling together like old times. According to People Mag’s sources, it’s very important to J.Lo that Ben spent time with Guadalupe:

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have reunited! A source tells PEOPLE that the actor, 48, and the singer, 51, reunited on Friday after some brief time apart from one another.

Affleck previously spent time bonding with Lopez’s mom Guadalupe Rodríguez earlier in the week when the Justice League star was seen directing an undisclosed project in Las Vegas that featured Rodríguez, 76, on the set. A source previously told PEOPLE that “Lupe was there to film a fun cameo.”

“In the past, Jennifer’s mom and Ben were very close. Guadalupe loved Ben. She was sad when they couldn’t work things out years ago,” a source now tells PEOPLE. “She is thrilled that they are back together now.”

“Jennifer is very close with her mom. It’s very important to her that the person she is with, gets along with her mom,” the source adds. “Jennifer loves that Ben and Guadalupe hung out in Las Vegas. They both love gambling and had fun together at the Wynn hotel.”

I know it’s problematic that a man with a long history of addiction is back in Vegas, gambling with his almost-mother-in-law, but I’d also like to say that I do genuinely think it’s nice that Ben actively sought out Guadalupe for this mystery trip. I have no doubt that Guadalupe and Ben missed each other and really enjoyed each other’s company back in the old days. I bet they loved catching up, and I can also see how it would be so important to J.Lo that her mom and Ben are hanging out again.

    It is concerning that he’s gambling, considering his history of addiction. But I do remember reading that Ben knows how to count cards, an impressive skill that’s not actually gambling.

    • Hyrule Castle says:

      Just came here to say exactly this.

      Jennifer the ex wife must be just so fed up and concerned.

  2. Annaloo. says:

    Please just make it to the Met Ball. If they make it to New Years, I will be so happy

    Also, I would like Jlo’s secrets.. she’s just vibrant now that she’s back in love. It’s such good gossip

  3. Watson says:

    I love Guadalupe. She’s like the luckiest person ever as she won the slots jackpot worth a few million a few years back and now gets to paint the town red with Ben Affleck. If i were her I’d be cackling my ass off. What a fun trip!!!

  4. Kate says:

    Her mom always wanted a white son in law, lol! I bet she’s devastated that they’ll never have kids now that jlo is in her 50s.

  5. TheOriginalMia says:

    I’m sure Guadalupe is happy she’s back with Ben. She had high hopes for that relationship.

  6. Alexandria says:

    Gambling involves money. Money + potential relative (especially in law) can lead to conflict. Good luck to 3 of them.

    • Darla says:

      I don’t think Ben cares about money at all. I don’t know why, I’ve always had that impression. I mean, it’s easy of course because he’s got so much of it. But still, some rich people very much do care. He vibes the other way.

      • Gina says:

        Yep.I have heard he’s pretty generous too.Jennifer Garner said in her vanity fair profile that he’s the most generous person she knows.And I was watching an interview recently and Kevin Smith said Ben did most of his movies for free.One of the people who hosts those poker games also said the same thing.I’ve read that he’s a pretty good tipper too.He has a lot of demons and complications and I hope he’s able to recover but I think he’s always been kind.

    Love the headline pic!

  8. Theo says:

    What about Ben Affleck’s mom? Is she thrilled that her son is back together with JLo?

    • Al says:

      Ben’s mom was happy about it the first time at least and gave a public interview to deny rumors she disliked her. She said they were a good match and she was waiting for lots of grandkids.

  9. FYI says:

    I mean, is nothing private with JLo? Her team has to get even her mother in on the PR? If you’re so in love, and you’ve been burned — PUBLICLY, a lot — why why why would you have to spew every little thing to the media?

  10. Carolnr says:

    Everyone now is trying to turn back time…but you can’t. There are now 5 children involved in this relationship.
    I have to agree…if you don’t want a media circus, why tell everything to the media!
    After all, wasn’t that allegedly one of things that broke up relationship before?

  11. Nina says:

    Please just make them go away already.

  12. DiegoInSF says:

    This reunion has been my favorite things of the year in the gossip world. I live for these updates, I love them together and Jenn’s performance at Vaxlive with Her mom was the cutest, I love their relationship. JLo’s mom is so lucky as she has won a lot of money at the slots, IIRC.
