Blast From The Past: Former Celebrity Couples

The rise of Bennifer

Live Journal

In January 2004, actor Ben Affleck called off his very public romance and engagement to singer Jennifer Lopez. By June 2005, Affleck had married actress Jennifer Garner (he must really like that name), who was 4 months pregnant at the time of their wedding with daughter Violet. Lopez said she felt like her heart was ripped out from her chest in the aftermath of the breakup. She had once called Affleck “brilliantly smart, charming, and affectionate” but perhaps she would like to take that back now.

Life & Style

It didn’t take Jennifer Lopez long to move on from former finance Ben Affleck, in 2004 the star quickly began a romance with singer Marc Anthony. In fact, the couple had met way back in and reportedly Anthony’s first words to Lopez were, “One day you’re going to be my wife.” How’s that for confidence? The two married that same year, but eventually divorced in 2011. Lopez has said about her relationship to Anthony, “Things between Marc and me weren’t perfect – our marriage was never the kind to glide along peacefully.” Today J-Lo is with baseball player A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez), and their adorable Instagram photos have us hoping this is the one for J-Lo.
