What Exactly Happened with The Star Couple?
Since this was about twenty years ago, numerous fans and the entertainers who have been connected to the duo themselves, have had the option to think back on that time with affectionate recollections while trying hard to break down what precisely turned out badly.
From what we can review and recollect from 2002, Ben Affleck out of nowhere proposed to Lopez with a gigantic pink precious stone ring (Which she was recently. caught fantasizing about) and followed by that, he abruptly cancelled the wedding all of a sudden. Notwithstanding, no one would ever truly distinguish what was the actual reason behind everything that happened, back there!
We know now that Affleck battles with liquor addiction and substance misuse however, back in the mid-2000s, he was the pretty party- kid. Lopez, on the other hand, is a compulsive worker who carries on a perfect and organized way of life.
“It was hard to merge their two lifestyles,” an insider said in a private interview.
Initially, the couple had planned a lavish wedding with 400 guests set for September 2003. However, just a few days before the big day, the duo postponed it as they mentioned together in a joint statement made to the press,
“Due to the excessive media attention surrounding our wedding, we have decided to postpone the date, when we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.”
What Is the Current Scene Between the Duo?
Ben Affleck was recently in an interview where he uncovered that he and Jennifer Lopez still stay in contact in spite the deathbed that their relationship became just about 16 years back,
He further conversed with the New York Times about his present relationship with the Super Bowl Half-time Show star yet somehow, Jlo’s name appeared to keep coming up again and again. (Weird coincidence, eh?)
While talking to the newspaper about his life as an actor, his past relationships and struggles, he first opened up to the interviewee about her Oscar’s 2020 snub: “She should have been nominated. She’s the real thing.”
To which he further added, “I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That’s f**king baller.”
On the other hand, Jennifer has been caught making her own share of statements about her relationship with Ben Affleck, Jennifer told E! News in an interview: “I think different time different thing, who knows what could’ve happened, but there was a genuine love there.”
She also talked to PEOPLE about the pressure they felt: “We didn’t try to have a public relationship. We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids, and it was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was just a lot of pressure.”
The two stars stood out as truly newsworthy in the mid-2000s with a sentiment that caught the consideration of general society, fans and tabloids.
However, no feature was as stunning as the one about Ben Affleck proposing to the artist with a great $2.5 million wedding band with a giant pink rock. He supposedly purchased the 6.1-carat pink precious stone from Harry Winston. (Tsk-tsk), JLo gave the ring back, as the two at last, never got hitched however she seems to have been missing the ring along with the man, weird eh?
Even two decades later, JLo revealed that she “loved getting it.” Per Billboard.
What about her wedding with Alex Rodriguez?
Rodriguez publicly proposed to Lopez in March 2019 while the couple was on vacation, and it seemed like a year was a long-enough wait for them as they seemed to be birds desperately in love!
According to a source— “the couple will be getting married this summer.”
However, upon being asked about whether Covid’19 will affect these plans, Jennifer told Ellen that—
“It did affect it a little bit. So, we’ll see what happens now…. I really don’t know what’s gonna happen now as far as dates or anything like that. We are just kind of in a holding pattern like the rest of the world. So, again, it’s just something we have to wait and see in a few months how this all pans out.”
On April 23, Rodriguez gave a wedding update during an appearance (via video) on The Tonight Show. “We have to go with the flow now. Everything is fluid, everything’s on just a pause. Obviously, this is an unprecedented time, and for us, we just want to make sure that we think safety first and make sure that all the little ones are in a good place.”
The question that now rises from this whole scenario is if Jennifer will be able to get to the alter anytime soon? What do you think, comment below to let us know what you think!
