The rumours were true – Bennifer is back on! J Lo confirms she’s back with Ben Affleck

It turns out the rumours were true – Jennifer Lopez has finally confirmed that she’s back with her old boyfriend Ben Affleck by posting a picture of them on Instagram.

Burying the snap at the end of a birthday photoshoot, the 52-year-old has excited fans of early noughties nostalgia as she is seen kissing Affleck on holiday in St Tropez.

The couple – famously known by the portmanteau Bennifer – were also spotted by paparazzi on their luxury mega-yacht, with Lopez in a colourful dress and heels, while Affleck opted for a pair of chinos and a T-shirt.

There are also media reports that J Lo’s former partner Alex Rodriguez was on a nearby boat.

Lopez and Affleck sparked speculation in May after reports they had cosied-up again were splashed on tabloids, accompanied by photographs of the actor appearing to not-so-subtly leave J Lo’s house.

Back in the early 2000s, Lopez and Affleck were one of the hottest couples around – an Oscar-winning Hollywood actor and one of the biggest pop stars on the planet – and became known, obviously, as Bennifer.

Not wanting to hide their relationship, Affleck famously appeared getting close to the singer on a yacht in her 2002 music video for Jenny From The Block.

Their rekindled romance comes hot off the heels of J Lo’s split from former major league baseball star Rodriguez earlier in the year, whom she was engaged to.

Despite denying a relationship rift in March, the pair called it quits, saying: “We have realised we are better as friends.”
