Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Solidify Their Rekindled Relationship During Latest Outing

The latest photos of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck put any doubt the couple was back together to rest. The Hustlers actress was seen snuggling up with Affleck as they went for a romantic dinner date on Monday. In a set of photos Page Six published, the couple holds one another as they walk inside Merois, Wolfgang Puck's new West Hollywood restaurant.

At one point, photographers caught Lopez with her head rested against Affleck's chest. The two eventually took a step back from the PDA, opting to simply hold hands as they made their way inside the restaurant. The couple reportedly arrived together in Affleck's car, and there seems to have been a third person on the outing with them. The date night serves as the first time the two have been spotted together since their trip to Miami. Affleck, who shares three kids with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, returned to L.A. earlier to be with his family, but Lopez chose to stay a little while longer. She eventually came back to Hollywood after spending an evening with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Affleck and Lopez, who were previously engaged in the early 2000s, started dating each other again in April of this year. This followed Ben Affleck's breakup from Ana de Armas and the "On the Floor" singer's split from Alex Rodriguez. Her engagement to the former MLB player reportedly fell apart due to rumors that he was stepping out on their relationship with Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy.

Though Lopez seems to have moved on pretty quickly, at least her ex isn't too down in the dumps over the breakup. Sources close to Rodriguez previously shared with the outlet that he's not "in a world of pain" over their split. "He's been spending time with his family and concentrating on the Timberwolves deal. He's concentrating on his kids and the team. That's it," they said.


"I am about to step into a new beginning in my life," Rodriguez previously said of his mental state via Instagram story. "Anything that doesn't serve me is clearing out of my life. New energy is emerging. New levels are unlocking for me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am remaining patient and know that this new phase of my life is coming."
