Ben Affleck Started Reaching Out & Sending ‘Loving’ Emails to Jennifer Lopez Back In February
Alex Rodriguez is apparently as shocked as the rest of the world that Jennifer Lopez, his fiancée until last month, not only has moved on from him so quickly but has reignited her romance with ex Ben Affleck.
To make things even worse for the former MLB player — Affleck had already been reaching out to Jennifer while they were still technically together.
“Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez didn’t just rekindle their romance within the last 2 weeks, instead, it’s been building since February … when he started flooding her with emails while she was filming in the Dominican Republic.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Ben and J Lo were in very regular contact by email starting in early February when she flew to the Caribbean to begin filming “Shotgun Wedding.” We’re told the tone of the emails wasn’t just friendly … but more loving and longing for Jen.
For instance, after seeing pics of Jennifer in the D.R., he wrote to tell her how beautiful she looked, and how much he wished he could be down there with her. Of course, he was busy at the time in Boston, shooting “The Tender Bar” with George Clooney — and she was still engaged to Alex Rodriguez.
Our sources say the emails also referenced J Lo’s love for Ben’s writing, and included a line about him being able to “own her heart” with his pen.
We’re told they continued emailing each other, back and forth, for the duration of J Lo’s shoot … which wrapped in late April.”
“Bennifer” hasn’t confirmed that they’re on again, but did recently take a solo trip to Montana last week. A source told People magazine, “She had a great time with Ben. She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.”
A source close to Lopez told E! News, “A-Rod is shocked that J.Lo has moved on,” having announced on April 15 that they ended their engagement. “He truly thought they would be able to make it work and reconnect. He has been reaching out to J.Lo trying to meet with her and she has been very short with him.”
Rodriguez is said to be saddened” that Lopez reunited with Affleck, and claims her contacted her to let her know, noting, “He’s upset.”
However, the source added, “She’s not interested in rekindling anything with A-Rod and is done.”
That is what you call a strike out to end the game.
