Many people don’t like being friend zoned or staying as a friend after the split, but patience is the virtue and this old flame is actually validating it.
After splitting from Alex Rodriguez, 'Love Don’t Cost A Thing' singer J Lo is hanging out with an old pal, that old pal being her ex lover Ben Affleck.
Affleck, 48, visited Lopez, 51, at her L.A. home on Friday, a source tells PEOPLE.
A separate source who knows them both tells PEOPLE, "They are friends. They have always been friends and they have seen each other through the years."
Affleck was also photographed leaving a white Escalade SUV that allegedly belongs to Lopez, according to the New York Post's Page Six.
Rodriguez and Lopez released a joint statement on April 15 announcing the end of their engagement after four years together.
Multiple sources have confirmed that it was the singer who ultimately broke up with the retired baseball player and on the otherside it was told A-Rod is trying hard to fix things even after releasing the break up statement.
But it seems, its little too late, as JLo is maxing on her independence and liberty thanks to her singlehood.
Affleck and Lopez were engaged in 2002 and made headlines as "Bennifer" during their years together, even co-starring in the films Jersey Girl and Gigli. They postponed their 2003 wedding, days before they were set to walk down the aisle, then officially split by January 2004.
And this would become like a pattern for J Lo as her wedding plans with A-Rod were also delayed and dates were postponed, before the singer called it quits.
Despite going their separate ways, the two have remained friendly with Affleck thirsting on Lopez's glow in an interview with InStyle when the "Love Don't Cost a Thing" singer graced the cover of its May Beauty Issue.
The Oscar winner opened up about Lopez to the magazine joking, "Where are you keeping the fountain of youth?"
"Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I'm in my 40s … at best?" he added.
J Lo did not ignore his flirty admiration and responded by saying:
"I don't have any [beauty] secrets except JLo Beauty — and I'm giving them all to everyone with every product. Ben is funny! He still looks pretty good too."
Anyways the current situation is, J Lo is ready to move on, A Rod is sad and trying to fix things and then you have Afleck who broke up couple of months ago with Ana De Armas, currently single and may be is trying to shoot his shot.
