Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck appear to be an item again after she reportedly split up (again) from longtime fiancé Alex Rodriguez.

Jennifer, 51, and her ex-fiancé Ben, 48, have been spotted hanging out together in recent days. Ben broke up with his last girlfriend, Ana de Armas, in January.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, J.Lo’s security staff have been seen picking Ben up at the Hotel Bel-Air and ferrying him to Jennifer’s home in Los Angeles.

“Security picks him up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house,” a source explains.

However, insiders insist the relationship is purely platonic for now, explaining, “They are friends… They’ve never not been.”

Ben was recently photographed exiting J.Lo’s white Escalade SUV with a green backpack in his hand.

A source told People on Saturday, May 1, that the two are still fond of one another, explaining, “They have spent time together in L.A. over the past week. They have a lot of love for each other. They have always admired each other. They obviously have a romantic history, but at this point, they only have a friendship. They both admire each other professionally, respect one another, and feel comfortable with each other.”

Jen and Ben were a power couple back in the early 2000s. Sparks flew after they met at an industry event in July 2002. Months later, she invited Ben to play her love interest in her music video for “Jenny From the Block.”

They also starred together in Ben’s 2004 comedy-drama film Jersey Girl. The lovebirds are pictured in a still from the movie.

Ben and Jen dated for 18 months from 2002 to 2004. They called off their wedding just days before the ceremony in 2003. They announced their split in 2004.

Sometime before or after their split, J.Lo met Latin heartthrob Marc Anthony who swept her off her feet. They tied the knot months later in 2004. Despite jumping the broom early, Jen and Marc’s marriage lasted 10 years. They share 13-year-old twins, Emme and Maximillian.

Ben is a very hands on dad with his three children, Samuel, Violet and Seraphina, from his 10 year marriage to actress Jennifer Garner, 49 (2005-2015).

Sisters With Voices, aka SWV say they plan to use their famous Michael Jackson sample during an upcoming Verzuz lipsync battle with Xscape.

Tamara “Taj” Johnson (left) and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons (center) joined “TMZ Live” on Thursday and were asked if SWV will play their hit, “Right Here (Human Nature Remix),” when the R&B group battles Xscape on Saturday.

TMZ suggested there would be “potential backlash” from the “cancel culture” if SWV played the song during the Verzuz.

Taj and Lelee see no issue with playing the sample. They say they didn’t even pay Michael for the sample of his 1983 hit, “Human Nature,” and they wouldn’t be successful if not for Michael.

The ladies say it’s not their job to judge Michael by canceling his music.

SWV fans agree. One Twitter user wrote:

“The people with this alleged “potential backlash” won’t even be tuned into the Verzuz so this will be a non issue.”

Another user tweeted: “If they DIDN’T use the MJ sample there would be an even bigger blacklash!!!!”

And a third wrote: “People still trying to create anti MJ controversy in 2021?”

Floyd Mayweather Jr and YouTube star Jake Paul got into a heated exchange at the press conference for Floyd’s upcoming boxing match with Logan Paul.

The 44-year-old champion boxer is annoyed since boxing fans say his fight with 26-year-old Logan is fake.

If you recall, Logan’s brother, Jake, 24, knocked out former NBA player Nate Robinson last year.

In a video posted on Thursday, Floyd suggested a boxing match between himself and Jake.

Jake tells him, “Don’t be calling [event promoter] Al Haymon. Let’s make it happen.”

“I’m my own boss,” FLoyd replies angrily.

Then Jake snatched Floyd’s cap off his head and shouted “Got your cap!” before fleeing with Floyd in hot pursuit.

Chaos ensued as Floyd’s security chased after them and separated the two combatants.

Question: Do you think the upcoming fight between Floyd and Logan Paul is fake?

Be warned: the video contains excessive profanity — mostly by Floyd who never got his cap back.
