Fans were devastated to learn that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner called it quits after ten years of marriage.
But now, a new report is claiming Ben's ex-fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, might have had a hand in the divorce!

“Everyone is talking about J.Lo and Ben and saying it's inevitable they will get together again at some point,” a source told The Sun. “They were pretty flirty at the Oscars and have stayed in touch via email. Jennifer Garner never liked it.”
The former couple dated for a year and a half and broke off their engagement in 2004. Ben moved on with the 43-year-old actress shortly after and they tied the knot in 2005.
A separate source denied these allegations to Mail Online, claiming the 45-year-old is happily dating dancer, Casper Smart.

Ben and Jennifer announced on Tuesday, one day after their 10-year anniversary, that they are ending their union.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” they said in a joint statement. “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children, whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
