Ben Affleck is thrilled that J.Lo’s mom lives with them & cooks for them?

"The Last Duel" Red Carpet - The 78th Venice International Film

Ben Affleck and Guadalupe Rodriguez have always been buds. During Bennifer 1.0, J.Lo’s mom adored Ben and they often went out gambling together. When Ben and Jen got back together in the spring of 2021, one of the first signs that this revival was the real deal was when Ben made a work trip to Las Vegas, and he brought Guadalupe with him (she ended up being in the gambling-app commercial Ben filmed in Vegas). Sources also insisted that Guadalupe was “thrilled” that her daughter and Ben were giving it another shot, and that Ben was and is her favorite of all of J.Lo’s partners. So, funny story: Guadalupe has moved in, and she’s doing the most to ensure that the Bennifer Revival keeps happening.

Three is not a crowd when it comes to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. Sources tell Star the singer’s mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez, has moved in with them!

“They love having her around,” says an insider. “She’s always doing special little things to make their house a home.” Turns out the 76-year-old has been a big fan of Ben since Bennifer 1.0.

“Lupe always wanted J.Lo to marry him and was so sorry when they split up the first time,” says the insider, adding that those close to her suspect she prefers Ben to Jennifer’s ex, Alex Rodriguez. “She’d love to see them get married at last.”

To that end, the former school worker has been spoiling the pair by cooking and cleaning up a storm. “She’s making her wonderful Latin dishes like fried pork chops, rice and veggies,” adds the insider. “The kitchen smells so good and homey.” And she’s no pushy monster-in-law type: “She doesn’t hover when they need some alone time!”

I mean, Ben and Jen aren’t living together – they’re maintaining separate residences, but obviously, they spend a lot of time at each other’s homes. They have been looking at real estate though, so maybe they will cohabitate officially soon enough. My point is that I think it’s more like Guadalupe probably lives with J.Lo, and Ben probably loves having her around and he loves visiting Jen’s house partly because of Guadalupe. Ben really was “the one who got away” for both mother and daughter, huh? It’s sweet.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck get cozy during a courtside date at the Lakers game!

    Ben Affleck is an over-indulged manchild. There. I said it. I feel much better.

  2. Case says:

    Serious question about Ben Affleck’s gambling commercials — he has a gambling addiction, does he not? Did I dream that? Every time I see those commercials I’m like dude what are you doing?

    • Marietta2381 says:

      He has never publicly stated he has a gambling addiction. I think people just assume when you have an addictive personality that you get addicted to everything. And are addicted to everything. I definitely think if he does have a gambling issue, it comes and goes in waves. Or he just doesn’t do it as public as he used to.

    • tushiba says:

      People think of gambling as a vice, but it is actually a profession. And Ben is a semi-professional gambler. For one to develop addiction to gamble, I think it at least should ruin one’s life by hooking one. In this regard, no, I don’t think Ben has gambling addictions. He plays but I never heard of him as having financial troubles. And for those of you rebutting that since he’s rich, it’s not easy for him to have financial problems, there are cases where wealthy men were ruined because of gambles when they borrowed money to continue the spree.

    If true nothing is sweet if Guadalupe thinks Ben the one that got away.

    A man who cheated on your daughter and was caught with hookers just before they were going to get married and then proceeded to blame her for 10 years because of his careers slope. Not to mention continued to cheat his partners and blame them for his behavior in choices.

    Why do people keep romanticizing this relationship? It was a toxic mess .

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yeah I’m trying to imagine a world where Mother Brannigan welcomed backed and cooked for a man that did that to me and honestly, she would Fu*k him up with that pork chop not serve it with veggies.

    • jas says:

      Exactly. These two are not long lost loves who were meant to be. These are two people who haven’t been able to maintain a healthy relationship in their entire adult lives, neither of whom can stand to be alone and have found each other available at an opportune time. Who knows? Maybe they can make it work. I doubt it.

  4. Dee Kay says:

    I like Bennifer 2.0 and I love that J.Lo’s mom clearly loves them. I know it’s rare but I think Bennifer could be that one couple who had a crazy-toxic-love the first time around, and have now matured, worked through the stuff that happened the first time (Affleck’s cheating and paranoia about the press coverage and the effect on his career), Affleck has apologized in an honest way, and they can have a healthy love now. I am also completely ready for it to go sideways in a hot second and won’t be surprised if two rich and famous celebrities turn out not to be capable of growth and change. I’m just hoping for the one-in-a-trillion story here.

    • Coco says:

      How did Ben work though what happened the first time? When he has cheated on all the women he’s been with since JLO? and still blaming them for his choices . Also checks out the moment the media comments negatively on his photo ops?

  5. Sarita says:

    So she’s Carole Middleton.

  6. lunchcoma says:

    Imagine having a collection of past boyfriends and husbands that’s so bad that Ben Affleck is your mother’s favorite.

  7. Aria Johnson says:

    This is coming from star magazine? Im iffy to believe stories that don’t come from more credible places like PEOPLE, E news, or ET entertainment

  8. Betty says:

    This is from Star !! that should tell right there is not true.
    Also in all JLO interviews about her parents she has mentioned her mother lives in New York and Dad in LA.
    So her mother visits for the holidays etc but she as far as interviews and pictures shows does not live with her

  9. Karisma says:

    The source is meh but it’s a sweet story and lupe always adored Ben and I would trust her mom’s jugement you know the person who actually birthed Jen and actually know her and bennifer relationship over strangers on the internet lol

    • Coco says:

      Yes because it wasn’t public that Ben cheated on JLo and was with caught with hookers and Ben giving interviews for years blaming JLo for his careers slope.

      I wouldn’t trust my mom jugement over a men who Publicly humiliated me and I made it my fault for years and did the same thing to his ex wife and girlfriends after the fact. If it true mom seems toxic herself.

      It seems more like you like to romanticize a toxic relationship because it gives you nostalgia.

      • Karisma says:

        Coco no need to be that butthurt and I repeat her mother knows the inside of this relationship and she still likes Ben for a reason. It’s just pissing you off that not everyone seems to see him as a horrible monster. And where did he blame jlo? He always talked about the circus that became bennifer not her personally.
        And I like the relationship because I find them cute and I do believe ppl have the right to a second chance and human beings can evolve. Maybe you are the toxic one with all that negativity lol

      • Coco says:

        I’m toxic 🤣😄 You seem mad that people think JLO deserves better. I disagree it must be pissing you off that people don’t agree with you, otherwise you wouldn’t have made the comment about JLO mom knows better then people on the internet.

        Where did he blame JLO? look up his old interviews .

        Girl what has he done that shows he changes? Did he not cheat on Jen G for years, did he not cheat on his Ex girlfriend from SNL and his girlfriend after her?
        Did he not just blame Jen G for his drinking.

  10. jferber says:

    RIght on, Coco.

  11. Carolnr says:

    JL’s mom doesn’t set the bar too high for her daughter then, huh?

    • Celina says:

      She raised a successful, hard working multi talented daughter who’s had one of the longest most fruitful careers in the history of entertainment. The bar is in the sky.

    • Karisma says:

      Mad where coco? Stop projecting You’re the one taking that very personally and acting like he cheated on you lol
      Funny how you can’t show me when he blamed jlo?
      And the garner part of the interview was already explained multiple times. But stay bitter I guess lol
